Re: Craigslist, ebay, Amazon and other online finds

OK. I have to object to the way "friend" is being thrown around here.

Here are some suggestions when talking about my relationship with FrunkyMonkey:
adversary
competitor
enemy
foe
opponent
rival
backbiter
betrayer
defiler

Re: Does anybody have any information or experience with TTP turbo engine modifications?

Don't know anything about that company, but you need to look closely at what was replaced for the internals. I've read from people that I trust know what they are talking about that the stock m96 internals are not up to the task of forced induction. The gist is that it will work for awhile, but it i...

Re: What did you do to/with your 996 today?

My ‘99 is Vesuvius Gray Metallic- which supposedly was a special order color back then. It gets a lot of comments & seems to change color with the light. It looks different in daylight, overcast, fluorescent lights, etc. I looked at a car that had everything I wanted (price, options, etc.) that was...

Re: What did you do to/with your 996 today?

Admired the feathers it grew overnight 8-) While that is pretty cool get that thing a garage or at least a cover! It's been street parked it's entire life. No reason to change that now!

Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

Don't forget all the K&N stickers that they then plaster on the car. Each may only be +5hp, but it adds up when you can't see through the side and read windows. True that. That's why I haven't put my 9960utpost sticker on yet. I'm afraid it's going to hurt my Cars-n-Coffee times. What's it matter? ...

Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

With some exceptions (as I understand it) passing CA smog with stock emissions equipment is simple. It's enthusiasts who insist on the extra 375 HP from a K&N CAI that gripe about. Come on, DT, a CAI mod is going to only get you about 100 extra hp (150 at most). Don't forget all the K&N stickers th...
