Made some good progress this weekend with the 996 getting the solid mounts changed out for some RSS ones. I was picking up some knock sensing with the solid mounts and decided with how well the RSS's were in the 997 that it was the best route to go.
After getting the Rennline ones out I noticed that they seemed a lot longer than the RSS mounts and the factory ones.
Factory 996/997 Turbo Mount
RSS Engine Mount
This explained why the air box was always a PITA to pull out and install on the 996 Turbo as the motor sits ~.300" lower.
RSS Mounts in and marked.
Next was to move onto getting the GT2 Decklid on....while I figured this would be an easy job, it turns out that I need to grab a couple other items for final fitment. The Tail Light Savers did not fit due to the thick paint on this deck lid, in hind sight I should have stripped it all the way down rather than sand and paint. So some grinding of the tail light savers will be in order once things are all fitted.
Initial test fit
Some little adjustments need to be made for the inner mounting tabs on the 3rd brake light as well as picking up a CF fan bracket to round it all off, tonight's task will be tapping the top holes as they are filled with a little too much paint.
