Re: Widowmaker Project (Building a Faux GT2)

The local PCA chapter was doing a drive on my local roads so decided to join up with a few friends for a cruise through western mass and southern VT. With the 996tt down till the intercoolers show up some time next month, it was a perfect opportunity to stretch the legs on the 997 Turbo. Being that ...

Re: Search is Over, Picked up a 911TT

You will have to remove the headers completely to port them with a grinder, then clean the insides out with a dish washer or ultrasonic to make sure no debris. Quickens the spool by 400-600rpms on K16's. Takes about 2 beers in time to knock down the welds 60-70% with a carbide burr or stone then pol...

Re: Search is Over, Picked up a 911TT

Thanks. Since I posted I’ve installed Kevin’s tune which is great and bought a slightly used Europipe, I may install that this weekend. I had recently changed out my O2 sensors due to an intermittent code and wanted to confirm it doesn’t come back, so far so good. So RnR exhaust soon. On a sad note...

Re: Widowmaker Project (Building a Faux GT2)

With the super hot weather it left only mornings to work on the house gutting, with retiring to the cool garage by lunch time. Attacking the plugs first as they were due for changing after 12k miles, I also decided to tackle the one broken coil plug from the prior shop that worked on it. Originally ...

Re: Widowmaker Project (Building a Faux GT2)

HAHAHAHA! I had not seen that!


Yeah, the living room was currently in the front facing the street so decided to eliminate the wall between my old server room and the kitchen so that can become the living room facing the lake.

Re: New Corvette!

I would rock it, that is a lot of car for 60k, half of a 991.1 GT3 is. If they put a manual in it then count me in for sure, no reason to pay the Porsche tax on a GT4 :D

Re: Rattle from front somewhere.

Rattle normally seems to be strut mounts and or shot sway bar end links. Since the end links checked out, I would jack the car up and use a pry bar under the wheel to lift up/compress the suspension, you should hear the clunk of the strut tops.
