Re: Long Time No See

I've been thru a 2007 997 C4S and just bought a 2007 997S Groov, you've changed. The old Groov I knew would have gotten another 2007 C4S. :lol: Hope you're doing well, man. I would have thought he'd move onto the 991 generation. Groov's has owned every flavor of 911.. and 356. He's like a Porsche b...

Re: Long Time No See

Just wanted to stop by and see how all you 996 losers are doing 8-) I've been thru a 2007 997 C4S and just bought a 2007 997S which is a great low mileage example. Miss all the fun in RL 996 Forum years ago. All the best to you guys! resize.jpg resize-1.jpg Don't be a stranger Groov! I also miss th...

Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

I got a need.... A need for speed! https://youtu.be/qSqVVswa420 Good trailer. Looks like it will be another good one. The first one is the reason I ended up flying for the Navy - summer of 1986 and although I got into law school, I was about $4,900 short of the first semester tuition of $5,000. So ...

Re: Search is Over, Picked up a 911TT

Be thankful, IP. My father-in-law has a shop, they service several fleets of vehicles each week. He tells his assistants to never use wiper service position when washing a car/truck. The guy got lazy, pull the wipe in service mode, and began to pressure wash the truck. The water pressure from the wa...

Re: Rattle from front somewhere.

b3, rattling and creaking are two different sounds/issues. Thanks Bill. I'm in the studio recording business. ;) I know sound differences, but I not always right about mechanical things. I threw that out there to help get the OP thinking about other possibilities because a lot of people have had th...

Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

So the AC in the Acadia isn't cold. The internet tells me the AutoZone recharge things are bad but that seems weird. Are they bad? This has been random internet car talk. UPDATE! Decided to give the AC Pro a chance as calls to various shops gave me estimated appointment dates of sometime after the ...

Re: From Bore Scoring to Health Courtesy Flat6 Innovations

This is better than watching an autopsy on CSI 😁 Agree...when it's not part of you! :roll: It is interesting to me that even though complex in design it is really a simple engine to disassemble. Now assembly...not so much. What amazes me is why someone denies obvious and says it's all hype (i.e. Dr...
