    Hi Bill
    May I ask for your advice. The porsche passion virus got me again and I am planning on putting a 997 gt3 engine into a 964. the transmission will fit. Most concerns are regarding e gas and electrics. I also thought about a 997 Cup Engine for those reasons but thing street use will be worth than with the gt3 engine. Can you supply any infos on pitfalls? Have you done it? Thanks for your advice. Best regards Philip

    Depends on usage
    Bilstein shocks are the reliable standard, digressive revalve is icing, but t-bars will depend on use and local roads, My own C3 is on 20/26mm tbars but is street only, 21/27 seems to be a good combination for dual use. Rubber bushes for sure for mostly street use. w/ the rack spacer you can go pretty low, but height also depends on use and setup, too low and the spoiler hits things, too high and there's too much space above the tire, each setup is likely to be different. On mine w/ 225/45 & 255/40 x17 tires i'm at ~25.5" fender height and need to drop it another ~.25"

    Hey Bill.....looking to get input from you on shocks and torsion bars along with bushings for a suspension freshen on 1983 SC coupe. Just finished tie rods and picked up the rack spacer kit for bump steer as I'd like to sit just below euro height. Any recommendations? Want a street performer that can go to the track work well if needed (likely very rare), but mostly just give a good ride on a 300 mile trip and handle the curves better than stock.

    HI Bill,
    Thanks! you have any places that would have such a flat hat they sell that is quality? I have 996 rear calipers/adapters and the larger MC already.

    I will go ahead and order those brake caliper adapters.

    yes it will work, but the 993tt rotor will need a flat hat not the stock 993 hat and you will need to address the rear brakes for balance and the m/c too.

    HI Bill,
    Just wondering if you would know if this will work. I have a 1978 911 SC narrow body. wanting to do. with Bilstein Sport from struts, will this brake adaptor work with a 993 TT front rotor on my car? I already have the front calipers. its the adapter and rotor that have me up in the air. this link says the adapter and 993TT rotor will bolt right up to my car and yeap i have 17" wheels.

    Hi. I know you must be tired of the brake question, I have searched. When doing the brake upgrade using 964 calipers on 930 rotors, for the rear upgrade, does the upgrade work with the 2 piston rear calipers as well or only with the four piston rear calipers?

    Thanks .
    Regards Craig

    I'm not familiar w/ the issue. Was it the dash mounted climate control unit that was swapped out?
