You can read more about it on my blog here: I've already got a lot of time and money into the project, I'm not concerned about spending more of either as this is a hobby. Join us in our , and ask a question to one of our many automotive experts. You can easily remove the side brackets, but the cast pieces need to have the lower metal portion of the manifold removed in order to remove them as well more on this later. But that will have to wait until I fab up some engine mounts and other stuff. But the new look didn't compromise performance—the 996 matched the 911's previous 0-60 time of 4. Figure 22 This photo shows the bracket successfully removed.
The bodywork was also revised to allow airflow to 3 radiators up front and to accommodate 18-inch wheels and tyres. One or maybe all the previous owners contributed to a list of issues including kissing a guard rail which is why the body has newer model panels. Are you sure about the changes?

Obviously you need the corresponding parts such as the , , master cylinder, pedal, shifter and housing, etc, but once the plumbing is mounted and the parts installed, your there. Even now no one can tell that it has 245k on the clock.

A Tiptronic-to-manual conversion is a hard thing to do and ultimately not a great idea so either you find what you like with a manual transmission, or you find it with Tiptronic. While Porsche 996 models have not seen the huge jumps of the air-cooled classic 911 models, 996 prices have crept up steadily over the last five years and values are now well and truly trending upwards. Development was shared with its entry-level sibling, the roadster-only which was introduced around the same time, including the front suspension, various interior components, and the engine, all of which were enlarged for the 996. I couldn't notice it when it was 2wd because the car would loose traction before the clutchwould slip and there wouldn't be much load on it then. I might just stick with the original and restore it as it should be. I have procured most of my parts and will do most of the work myself.
Car is absolute original and its in excellent condition and after replacing the entire carpet set with genuine wilton wool it will be pristine. I started doing that but halfway through that I noticed that I was having too many hoses running all over the place and it looked messy. Figure 6 There are two parts to the 996 side brackets - the welded steel bracket itself, and then the cast metal piece that mounts to the engine. I already have the longblock sitting in the garage ready to be installed. The price difference from manual transmission to Tiptronic in a Porsche 996 depends entirely on spec, condition, mileage and options.

I am planning on doing this to an older car I own 81 DeLorean. The Turbo is powered by a water-cooled and intercooled 3. It was admired for its sophisticated design, completely new platform having a sleeker body with a more raked windshield, and re-designed interior. But even before the introduction of the 996, Porsche had experimented with new bearing designs, and this development resulted in a short run of low-capacity bearings, some of which ended up in early 996's. April 2019 Porsche offered a special edition of the 996 for the year 2000. I started with a Y under the oil pan connecting both turbos to the heater hose, then I found out that I don't have enough compression fittings to finish the hoses from the heater hose to turbos. In addition, engine capacity was also increased to 3.
So next up on the to do list is : -swapping the front tires -waiting for the new starter to show up and install it -Change the headlight bulbs right now the color is off on both sides -Swap out the old valve seals that should be fun -Install the holley stuff once it gets here and wire it.

I have been doing Porsche mods since about 2005 and this is the first I have come across a project like this. You are looking at a 1999 Porsche 996 that has seen a rough life. All donations go to the costs operating and maintaining this site. This way I should be able to tune the car easily and log stuff and have the benefit of a self-learning ecu. And when you are all done, you will have a car with a diminished resale value, so you will never recover your outlay. You either have to source most of the hardware from Porsche or a wrecking yard, you end up with only a few items that are resell able, and the value of the car becomes diminished because of the transplant.
It features an all-wheel drive system and was available with either a 6-speed manual or a 5-speed Tiptronic transmission. I'm pretty sure some engine gubbins such asthe intake system are also different. I also I decided it was time to fix that annoying weak starter that seemed to lose all power once it got hot. At its debut, the 996 featured the most significant change from the classic 911 series: a engine replacing the previously engine. Thats very cool to me.
