Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I just picked up a 2002 996 TT tip $25k with 88k miles on it as my daily driver...replacing my 2000 996 C2 tip with 181,000 miles on it.

needs some work to make it mine.

I really dont want to spend too much $$, i am looking at

1-Lowering (just for look) will never race it. I like the ride so i dont want it to change much just lower (H&R springs)

2-Exhaust (catback) (peedTech 70mm Hi-Flow Exhaust Mufflers Porsche 996 TT )

Congrats on the new car! If it were me and I had the room I would keep the Carrera. regarding the mods.. Just be aware that you will be going through lots of front spoiler lips if you lower the car. But it will look cool :rolleyes: And you will lose a bit of ride quality (depending on the springs you choose.)

That exhaust system looks nice. Haven't heard of that brand though.

The specs on that K & N filter says "Not legal in California" that could be a problem for you during smog checks and could cause a CEL. Perhaps you're planning to put the stock box back on when it's time for smog.

Now you have two... I love it...:clapping:

Enjoy!

Thanks but where does it say K&N is not legal in CA ??

I have the same Filter for my 996 C2 and passes smog every time :)
