This is the setup I currently run on mine: http://www.emnotek.com/p-869-porsche-bilstein-pss10-coilovers.aspx
Thank you! ^^ The Bilstein suspension setup is to replace the factory struts and springs on the car, and replace them with a high performance setup. You are then able to adjust the stiffness of the ride, and lower the vehicle to your desired height. I have mine setup for road course racing. I used to have many high performance turbo charged Japanese imports, some setup for drag racing, but most for road course tracks. There is nothing like the feeling of being able to push your car to its limits for a half hour straight on a closed track in a legal environment with no worries of police haha! As for speed, I have had mine to about 155. It had more left in it, but I was on an interstate when I did that and I felt like that was enough for a public roadway :) I absolutely love this car, it is by far the best car I have ever owned. I'm still learning about it and slowly learning how to work on it as I go. I've always done all my own work on the cars I've owned, and learning about the Porsche as I go has been interesting considering it's very different rear engine setup. You can try to send me a private message and see if it will work? -Marc
Marc010 replied to hi8ha's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I used VHT caliper paint with great results. I did the brembos on my Evo the same way in the past, and they withstood a lot of high temp abuse. I just got mine done last week on my Carrera. Turned out nicely.
I believe mine is Arctic Silver Metalic. So do you have a geology degree? I've also owned a bmw, though mine wasn't as special as yours. The Porsche is a definite kick in the pants compared to most bmws haha! But, it's a purpose built sports car. Mine is a lot rougher than a factory 911 due to the aftermarket bilstein adjustable coilover suspension. She prefers smooth roads :)
My oil psi gauge reads just over 1 at idle, and varies depending on revs while driving. Cruising down the road at 75mph in 6th gear it's at about 3-3.5. It sounds like yours is now working properly, however you do seem to have more pressure than I do. My car has never had an issue with oil psi, oil burning, leaks or anything of that nature since I've owned it and it's a strong running motor. Not sure why yours reads that much higher but from your description it seems like the sensor itself is working properly now.
Side View with better shot of the wheels.
My Calipers I just redid. I have about 10 hours Invested in them haha!
Apparently I'm unable to message you, so I guess I'll post it here even though it's kind of off topic. I'm interested in knowing more about this paint you speak of
Car is lowered quite a bit. They are 19's
I guess I could include a few of the vehicle modifications. Bilstein coilovers, wheels/tires, freshly re done red Brembos (not pictured) intake modification, muffler bypass pipes
Marc010 replied to violaGT3's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)01 Carrera. 82k miles, burns maybe half a quart every 3k or so. Zero leaks. Not positive if it is the original engine or not.
Marc010 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Is there anyone else from Iowa here? This Is my 01' Carrera. Thought I'd share a quick photo and say hello!
