Not by much, there are a few threads on the front shocks that can be used to lower the car and the rear uses different thickness spacers. Except for the RS suspensions none of the factory suspensions was designed w/ lowering in mind.
I have a '92 964 C2 that had original shocks and springs. I wanted to lower the car (and improve handling) so I had my local shop install ROW M030 springs with Bilstein HDs. Was aligned and corner balanced etc. Problem is that I don't think the car is even 1/8 inch lower. Was expecting 3/4 inch to 1 inch based on online posts. Is there any way to adjust the ride height? Can the shocks be installed in a way to compress the springs more, or did I just get the wrong springs for lowering?
if the euro DME is from a turbo it will probably swap in, if it's from a n/a car it won't.
I haven't looked at the turbo wiring so can't say for sure how the 88pin systems work but the heart of the 55pin systems is the chip in the DME, if the chip doesn't send a signal to the immobilizer then it doesn't function and is no longer a concern. The starter relay still would need to be bypassed, on a 55pin setup this is simply done by replacing the starter relay w/ an off the shelf Porsche part
I am thinking of buying a '97 USA 993 TT that apparently has a dead 'brain'. Another member has a '97 UK 993 ECU Brian and the price is right ($500). The UK ECU does not of course have it's Drive-Block feature. Do you know if I simply remove the USA '97 Immobilizer unit will that in itself allow the donor UK-ECU to work in my USA '97 TT ?
The wide 3.2 Carrera rear calipers use bigger pistons which move bias to the back, 99.99% of all users will find that there is too much rear bias w/ them, Carreras had a p/v that is not used on previous 911s
the rear of a 911 doesn't see the thermal abuse that the front does, so upgrading the rears is generally only done to balance the fronts.
Use 3.2 Carrera front calipers and rotors for a small increase in front thermal capacity and retain the stock 911 rears to balance them.
Hi Again Bill, have just found your brake summary page and it looks like the Wide M (1984 - 1989) calipers with 3 inch hole space and 24mm rotors should bolt straight on the rear end of my 1969 without adapters etc.?? Just wanting to make sure but not waste your time as well , are all Wide M calipers vented,as my old 20mm rotors are solid ,will this make a difference?
Many Thanks Brett in Australia
