  1. Because of your low mileage, I would first bleed and evaluate the slave cylinder. How? Thread, topic, video you recommend? Thx. There is an extensive thread on the subject: http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/7064-brakeclutch-fluid-change-and-bleeding-instructions/page-1?hl=+bleeding +clutch +slave Normally, most people bleed the clutch slave as part of the brake hydraulic system flush, which should be done at least every two years, sooner if the car is tracked. Both the clutch and brakes share a common hydraulic reservoir in these cars, so it is a great time to flush and ble

  3. 2007 Carrera 4S with 32k miles. Normally, the clutch grabs ("grabs=friction point") at about halfway from the floor. Just the other day, for the first time, the clutch grabbed only about 2 inches from the floor and it's very difficult to shift into 1st and reverse from a stop. It's been doing this ever since. I have searched the forums for a similar issue and it sounds like the clutch. However, I can't seem to find anyone who's clutch grabs so low.......the clutch engages almost immediately when you start to release your foot off the clutch pedal. Anybody else have this issue? Air in th
  4. Darren Fister is really helpful and he makes a great product. I used to have a 996 C2 Cab with the Fister exhausts. I can't tell you how many people would roll down their window and tell me the car sounded great and they never heard a 911 sound like that.............
  5. If, by any chance, you have a 17' garage, you could try this set-up.......
  6. My C4S has the same thing. It drove me nuts. So much so that I took it to the dealer!!! They weren't sure and had to keep it to diagnose it. They came to the conclusion that the Catalytic Converter was bad (one side only), a muffler was bad (opposite side) and the tips may be buzzing as well. I don't think it's that at all. I think the car has a very loud drivetrain - especially the transmission at the RPM range you note. Mine is especially loud when it's warmed up and hot. Is there any noise at idle that disappears when you depress the clutch pedal?
  7. Comes off from underneath by unbolting the 3 nuts from the triangle support and then the muffler clamp, no?
  8. Rats! You mean I have to read the manual??? I do have the Sport Chrono pkg as well. Thank you and I will read it and report back..........
  9. Got it. So, if someone moves my mirrors, pressing the seat memory button won't re-adjust them, true? That's interesting.....................
  10. Do the side mirrors work w/the memory for the seats in an '07 C4S?
  11. Niiiiiiiiiiice....... Enjoy it. I had a 2000 C2 Cab and traded for an '07 C4S. Yes! An amazing improvement indeed.
  12. I had the Fister's on my 996. People would stop me and say they never heard a Porsche sound like that...... That modification was about $500 and I did it myself. With the Fister system If you keep the revs under 2,500-3,000 it's relatively quiet. Anything above that and it sounds terrific - and a bit louder. If you want to be able to switch quiet to loud, Fabspeed is the way to go. It's got a FOB w/a remote quiet/loud switch. However, with Fabspeed, you're talking maybe $2,500(?) then more for the install. I now have a C4S w/the PSE. It sounds great and you can turn it up using the Sp
  13. Great write-up. I did it on a 996 w/out removing anything . . . I do have a question, though. How about the PSE vaccum actuators? I have a 997 now and I'm wondering how they come into play w/the exhaust swap..... Thx and again, nice job.
  14. If you are interested in the Fister mufflers as an option, I have a set I pulled off my 997.1 last night and am about to post on eBay for sale (probably on 9/19). I'm switching everything back to stock in preparation for a trade-in and selling the upgrades separately. I love the sound under throttle, and at idle or gentle throttle they aren't that loud, are are just little more raspy/throaty. The sound isn't very far off what you hear on a PSE exhaust in Sport mode as long as you realize you can't switch these to a quiet mode. Look around for reviews or take a look on fdmotorsports.com web
  15. 997 C4S same problem. vacuum actuator had to be replaced only 21k miles on the car........
