Even if you are not a PCA member, we have room to get you involved too...
I did a similar modification to my stock cans as shown in post#9. Inexpensive, excellent exhaust note, no drone, not excessive during normal acceleration, does not need a computer reflashing, does not cause a CEL illumination. And it was cheap and easy! Sounds awesome when you are really on it after about 3500 rpms!
Well, my solution to this issue was to purchase a completely fresh set of factory 18" Turbo1 hollow spoke wheels for my car. Sitting in boxes in the garage yntil I decide on my Street/AX tires for next season. :)
I am planning on running some non-OE tire diameters on my 996 coupe for track and AX duty. Is there a % difference front to rear that effects the function of the ABS...? What is the largest % difference I can run without confusing the ABS? I'm planning on 245x40x17 front with overall diameter of 24.7" 265x40x17 rear with overall diameter of 25.4" Thanks
DanIelT replied to dsnow's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Or just have them done locally like I did... Worked perfectly, no shipping and the sound is wonderful....finally sounds like a Porsche instead of a sewing machine :)
Who here is running them and what offsets are the wheels? Thanks
DanIelT replied to DanIelT's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)What I am trying to convey, is that I have found rear wheels that have both of the numbers on the back. They are stamped with both the 9" and 10" markings. On the same wheel
DanIelT replied to DanIelT's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)What I was trying to say that both of those numbers are supposedly on the back of the rear wheels. That doesn't make any sense... I am still waiting for clear pics to confirm. Very strange
Has anyone seen a rear wheel with two sets of numbers on the back? 993.362.138.00 9jx18-ET52 993.362.140.01. 10jx18-ET65 These are wheels I have found on CL, and they are supposedly stamped with both sets of numbers. Waiting for pics of the backsides to confirm. Anyone seen this before? Thanks
Will stock turbo IIs hollow spoke in 8 and 11" fit without interference on a stock '99 narrow body? 996.362.142.03 rears. 295X30 996.362.136.04 fronts. 225x40 Thanks
DanIelT posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)So who here will be attending? One day, all three days? Anyone doing any of the race groups? I will be there assisting the PCA National Club Race Steward. Someone has to know the track and the general layout of the facility. :rolleyes:
no, this was not on the wheels. Maybe this LAG is causing dyno to show 265hp. So how is the motor being dynoed, out of the car on an engine stand?
265 at te wheels is pretty stout considering 296 at the crank!
DanIelT replied to DanIelT's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Loving the modified exhaust! Sounds like a proper Porsche now :clapping:
DanIelT replied to DanIelT's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Mark has been doing Porsche repair and modification for over 25 years now. I don't take my Porsches to anyone else. He only works on Porsches and BMWs...not a "catch all" shop!
