1. The seats must come out for placing the main hoop in the car.

2. The rear deck carpet (the section which covers the vehicle's electronics) will be modified to accept the rear tube & shock tower footing.

3. The outside floor corner (behind the seats' outer rear corners) will require drilling (necessitates removal & reinstallation of the belly pan).

4. The same outside floor corners will require the carpeting be cut to accept the cage's front footing & tube. - Also some incidental floor padding will likely be removed here.

5. You will need to take the vehicle to a Porsche dealer for a code reset. - Once the airbag harnesses have been disconnected/reconnected the bag error will become resident until reset with the correct diag unit.

Note A: that if you are taller than 5' 10" you will find the stock seats too restrictive in the rearward adjustment which likely will necessitate fitting the 996 GT3 racing bucket(s), or some other (usually fixed angle) seat with a thinner back section.

Note B: I tried placing the main hoop in the car (just to get it to the shop) with zero luck. I would recommend not frustrating yourself (or potentially damaging the car) with this. - It is much simpler (and safer to the car) with the seats first out of the car.

Is the GT3 roll bar the same as the RS? Part # will be appreciated.

Thanks/David

I believe it is the same, but I do not have the part number.

You can call Farnbacher Loles in Connecticut at 203-798-2929 and ask for Kip. They have the part & info.
