Just ordered brand new 997 C4S OEM Porsche front top mounts to fit to the 996 along with new front ARB bushes (changed the droplinks a few weeks ago) and Goodridge braided brake lines as I have already bought all the caliper hard lines from Porsche (old ones getting crusty).


Design911 sent the wrong ARB bushes - standard ones and not C4S ones Mad

Are those just clip on rings then? I've ordered a water pipe and some o-rings for the pipe. For those interested it's got a bung in it that's almost corroded thru, it's about middle of the car left to right when viewed from the back and maybe a foot under. It's worth check on turbos/gt2/3's (not such if carrera have thus pipe). In a week or 2 I will be ordering front top mounts and the long air-con pipes.

New front OEM speakers. PSE switch fixed. Gearbox mount (the local OPC out here is wonderful. They advised me to buy the part from eBay as the entire unit would be 10x more).

Dial rigs are push fit and grip well 👍

1998 Porsche 996 Carrera 2

PostPosted: Sat May 20, 2017 7:32 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Three months ago I had M030 suspension kit fitted to replace the factory fitted M030 kit (122,000 miles), installed by Pete at Center Gravity and setup just as I like it.

A month ago EMC Motorsport fitted new Brembo front discs & pads after the Sebro/Textar combo were past their best after 17,000 miles (perfectly worn pads so the calipers are working fine!). The Brembo setup is a huge improvement over the OE items.

Today they also fitted a lightweight flywheel, she now sounds like an RS with the gearbox chatter, it's still quite refined in the cabin but standing outside with the engine at idle it sounds quite racy!

Just fitted new front inner and outer cv boots, front coffin arms and control fork arms.
The grease in the front axels was definitely due replacing..very runny, 84k probably never been touched since new.

I bought the OPT7 type H7 LED headlights to replace my halogen low beams on my 996.2 which has projector-type headlights for the low beams.
https://www.bestadvisor.com/led-fog-lights
I had to cut open the seal rear of the sealed headlight assembly to allow cooling of the LEDs, which poses a reliability risk if it gets wet inside. The OPT7 LEDs are much much brighter and whiter than the stock tungsten bulbs!

Finally, finally sorted out the ABS pulsing that was happening under low-speed braking. Big shout to Paul at Northway who worked out that it was a split, well, something on the front driveshaft and nothing to do with the braking system per se. Quick (!) replacement driveshaft and ***** me, braking is now weirdly smooth. Nice. And they found and (hopefully) fixed the aircon leak that's also been bugging me since I bought the car.

All in all, today was a good day Thumb

Full major service, including accessory belt, brake fluid, plugs and diff oil plus an air conditioning service from ATS.
Somewhat wierldy I am a little dissapointed that the car feels and drives exactly the same as before, I know that if everything is correct to begin with it shouldn`t make any real change once the services are completed but all the same it always feels like a slight let down to drive the car after all that work/time/money and it is no different at all Dont know

Nice to see something different. Not Sure how much I like it personally. I bet it looks better in the flesh?
