Welcome Turbro's!

Post by pfbz » Tue Jan 30, 2018 10:47 pm

OK Turbro's, sound off if you own a 996 Turbo! And of course the obligatory picture.

No Turbo wanna-be's or has-beens. Well, ok, I guess since there are only like 20 of us here, wanna-be's and has-beens are fine :?

Lets get this party started....

2001 Turbo, Arctic Over Black six speed. Pretty much stock, though I've been going through the car front to back refreshing all the common wear and failure points.

Does have a OTS cobb tune, put in a ApplePlay stereo, hardwired radar, etc.

Since I always seem to be working on it, I thought a picture of it on jack stands was apropos. Don't mind my other passion, KTM dual sports...

Welcome to another Turbro! Hey! I'm jealous of your dual sports! I'd run out to the shop to take a pic of my factory edition 450SX-F, but I have to drive to Chulajuana right now to catch a flight.

Turbro's? I see what you did there.

I'm the guy with the ridiculously long Porsche history (50+ 911s owned) now risking skin cancer with an '04 Cabriolet.

Hey Techweenie! Congrats on getting the cab. It's a beauty. And thanks for selling me the stock Bose rear subwoofer box. It worked out fine (after some minor surgery to clear the tops of the coilovers), and of course looks like it belongs there.

I plan to order a few of these for my C4S. Once installed, can I hangout with the Turbros?

Only if you get the fake blow off valve as well... And if your car thinks it's a Mezger, maybe it won't lunch it's IMS bearing!
