101 Projects for Your Porsche 911 996 and 997 1998-2008 (Motorbooks Wo

Recommended Posts

cscobra or Loren, can you tell if the book has any projects related to the interior/radio? I was on the waitlist forever, then my credit card on file expired so amazon bumped me off. I am trying to decide if its worth getting it, since I have so many other hobbies/projects going.

Any chance you can share the table of contents with us?

You can view the Table of Contents and index on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Projects-Porsche-1998-2008-Motorbooks-Workshop/dp/0760344035/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

DOH! Got it, sounds useful. I already have the Bentley manual, might get this one also to add to the reference library.

Yes, I would say the projects in this manual go well together with the Bentley manual... and the book is only $25.

Just received mine yesterday and last evening spent :20 minutes glancing through it. Unless you're one of those who pays someone else to wash your car, even if for doing it yourself you're limited to checking the tire pressures and changing your own oil and filter, this book is well worth the money. It's a great complement to the DIY online information on RennTech, Rennlist, Planet 9, Pelican and 6Speedonline. And those resources are at least as good as (if not better than) similar enthusiast forums for the Asian performance vehicles.

But does it tell you how to replace a fuel line? ;)

Got mine and paged through it. The photos are great and very well produced. That alone is worth the money, to have photo references while working on a project.

I just got my book from Amazon on Wednesday of this week. Since I am Amazon Prime I get shipments in two days, so if you are not prime expect yours to arrive any day now.

Just looked at it briefly and am very impressed with what I have read so far!!

      I bought the Porsche factory manuals (all 17 volumes in 3-ring binders) in 2000 for about $600. I then spend about $100/year each for the next 6 years to get updates. My factory manuals ended up about costing $1200. Porsche stopped printing manuals a few years ago and the set was well over $1200 at that time.
      That does not really cover everything - you also need the OBD II manuals for DME 5.2.2. DME 7.2, and DME 7.8 depending on your model year. When I bought my OBD II manuals (again in 2000) they were about $200 each. So to cover all models it cost me about $600. Porsche also stopped printing these manuals a few years ago and at the time each was over $800.
      So all totaled I likely spent over $2000 for the factory service and OBD II manuals for the 996.
       
      For $138 (on Amazon) you get the Bentley Porsche 911 Carrera Service Manual (996) hardbound manual with photos that the factory manuals don't have - and from I can see so far 99% of the information that is in the factory manuals. BOTH service manuals and OBD II manuals.
      The manual layout is excellent logically each section from General Information and Maintenance to Wiring Diagrams and OBD II. Roughly 11 sections with great detail and photos the factory manuals never had. 1024 pages (and over 7.6 pounds) the manual is well composed and covers even some of the more tricky tasks. The photos are certainly worth a thousand words many times over.
      Clear, concise, detailed and from what I can see complete - this IS the service manual to have if you own or work on the 996 series cars. I highly recommend it.

      Here are a few photos I took of the book..
