    This is a keeper! Moderator, please save this and the attachments so they don't disappear (unlike the old 987 dyno plots I wish we still had access to).

    Any way we can get this thread updated? Looks like the "More..." link is broken. And probably a cleaner way to organize the info above. Found myself mistakenly clicking on the same photo multiple times.

    The links to the pictures for your post on how to remove the door panels on a 981 do not work.
