So none of you lowriders have bottomed out and crunched the crossover for your headers?

Very good call on the wheels. Now you just need to ditch the mirrors and tail
Enjoy

It has a big Garretson IC. I still get compliments on the tail. Care to guess what it is?

Is it a 993 Turbo replica tail? Regardless, it looks really good on your car.

It's a cool tail. Too much color for my car but was thinking If I ever did another tail it might be that one. But with a twist. I'd use a light coat of Bedliner from arosol can to make what looks like a rubber trim like the turbo and Carrera tails. I need more black and I did that to my all fiberglass tail. Looks real and feels good too. Honest it does. I tested it before doing it. I'm going to use it on my splitter up front too. I wonder how rubber might look on the turbo s spoiler?
Hey it's not silicone.

Seems like the 930 might have a little less suspension travel than the 964T. My car is set to 964 RS height (which looks to be a tad higher than RS height of the torsion bar cars) yet I've nailed mine twice. I'm going to change it over the winter to get more clearance.

Paul didn't know you wanted details..my car has coil overs (500lb spring) in the rear along with 935 spring plates and Rebel Racing bearings. Does not bottom out under load and rides pretty smooth considering how low it is.

Just kiddin' ya Rey. Thanks for the info.
Part of the problem is I use H&R reds that aren't as still as your springs. The pot-holed, broken up roads in Michigan won't allow the use of anything stiffer.

Mine rides great, I have not bottomed out the headers or pan or front cross member {tow hooks are another story...I use them as feelers, if you get my drift.}

I can get the left rear tire to just swish the inside of the fender, just inboard of the lip, if I hit an off camber dip while turning right above 70mph. This has occurred just twice in the 5 years I've been driving the car at it's present stance, with only dirt removed, no damage.

My car is at least an inch below euro spec.'s, maybe more, never really measured it, but the car sits very low.
