That looks very good. What's the small plate behind the gear lever?
Mitch:Aside from the normal oil/filter changes, this past year I:
Replaced the water pump. Porsche OE, bought from an outside supplier for about $120 I think. Replaced because the OE one was pouring coolant. Car had approx. 75,000 miles at the time.
New rear tires, Bridgestone Potenzas just like those they replaced. Cost was about $300, bought slightly used from a former Cayman owner. They replaced worn out tires.
Big job was a new clutch and PP, installed this past winter(Feb/Mar.). Cost was about $500 total, including small parts, SACHs brand, just like OEM. I bought them from a nationally advertised parts company after shopping around for the best price. The clutch was slipping so I put in a new one.
Immediately after the clutch, the shift cable broke, so I replaced the cables with Numeric cables, bought from Numeric for about $500.
Soon after that, I replaced a coil, when one cracked and caused rough running and a CEL. Cost was about $60, got it locally at Advance Auto Parts, and it was Bosch, identical to the OEM coils in the car.
Looking to doing only performance/appearance mods for a while, hoping to get a Carnewal exhaust soon.
The Numeric cables give a very definite feel, some describe it as "notchy" but I feel it is more positive than the stock cables. And I don't think they will ever have to honor their lifetime warranty, the things are stout!Mitch:
You're a smart shopper!!!
I'm curious about Numeric cables. Any improvement from stock....aside from not being broken anymore?
Bought a 2006 S Thanksgiving time 2016. Since it's been awhile since I've had a Porsche (almost 25 years), felt the need to add/change it to fit my needs.Dear 987 owners,
In order to better help us help you, I've put together a brief survey that I would like each 987 owner to answer. We will compile the results and hopefully come up with some offerings that will benefit our members. Please take a few moments to reply to this survey.
Question 1: What modifications have you made to your 987 in the last 12 months?
Question 2: What specific brands/parts have you purchased to make these modifications? (Example: XYZ Company Wheels or ABC Company ECU Tuning)
Question 3: How much did you spend making these modifications? (Estimates are fine, for example "About $2000", etc.)
Question 4: Can you briefly explain why you bought each item you listed? (Example: "Was on Sale", "I considered it the best in the market", etc.)
I appreciate any and all responses to these questions as they will help us make Planet-9 an even better place to be!
Software flash and a cat-back will complete the job.I have had my 2008 Cayman 2.7 for 9 years. Finally decided to upgrade. Installed the larger 82mm IPD Plenum/GT3 Throttle body. Went with this after doing a lot of reading different posts on this site. Ordered directly from them, they have been very responsive by email from the time i order and even after i installed the parts. Wanted to start with something not too expensive. Paid $1000.00 for the parts and really enjoy the performance it's providing. This has me thinking of other upgrades i should do... Hmmm.
