    I would like your input on this car I have found. I have driven the car and am having a Porsche dealer perform a PPI Tuesday.


    What would be a price you think I should pay? My Porsche friends think for that price range, I should consider a CPO 997.2 CS and get the PDK Also, are there any 3rd party warranty providers I should consider? I do not intend to track the car, however I may want take her there one time. It's only fair. Thank you for any input.

    Hi Mike,

    The Bilstein that I have is B16 Damptronic, and Damptronic means the setting of the damper is electronically and automatically set. You don't set anything - there is NO dial to set.

    Bilstein does indeed make a MANUAL-setting version with the dial for damper control, and that is called B16 PSS10 (versus my B16 Damptronic). I do not know the optimal setting for that, sorry. I am sure Bilstein would have some recommendation if you call them. Hope this helps.

    Merry Christmas....getting the Bilsteins for my 997.1 Turbo. I've read all (I think) of your articles and thank you very much. Question....the Bilsteins have an adjustment (damper?) 1-10 that is soft (comfort) to hard. Is that the damping and what is your recommendation?

    Thanks again and Merry Christmas!

    hey there bro, just want to say great write ups you wrote in comparison with 997.1 vs 997.2 , i recently got a manual tranny 09 and to tell you the truth first week i drove ive been loving this car crazy but then thinking of an newer version and faster out there i felt a bit sad, but then reading all the post of how our engines are precious then im all comfortable with it since im a manual tranny freak. i just a question for you i want to start my mod with tune exhaust intake and wheels. ive been reading about protomotive and seems to me they're the best out there, what do you think? since you have quiet good info on our 997s, and what is the best freeflowing exhaust out there interms of power and sound? and i have an 09 macademia brown so i want gold wheels like the ones you have on your beast, what are they and where can i find them?? and sorry last but not least your front lip where is it from?

    Hi Cannga
    Just wanted to thank you for the excellent thread you did for the Turbo suspension upgrades to your car.
    I upgraded with all your recommendations & all I can say about my car is WOW!!! what a difference. Driving this 911 turbo now feels better than when I bought it.
    The handling is remarkably improved.
    I found your thread very informative & really learned a lot. The only thing extra I added was the front camber plates.

    Hi everyone, please don't post questions here as I rarely check this area. Please use the PM function instead, or post publicly on the forum.

    Hi Solarlottry, I have GIAC and love it for a few reasons:
    1. Reduces spool up and lag to near minimum. Feel extremely powerful in Sport mode.
    2. I believe that every ECU tune makes the car noisier at idle and gives the exhaust a high strung stressful character. Ok for a race car but gave me a huge headache. To my relief I found that the GIAC tune has relatively little effect on the exhaust noise.
    3. The flashloader (that allows you to move back and forth between tune mode and stock mode) is an incredibly valuable learning tool. By switching, you could compare stock versus tune and know exactly what the differences are. And refund if you don't like it!
    4. Most people don't talk about this but I think over time you get used to the power of an ECU tune. The flashloader allows you to go to stock mode occasionally, making tune mode feel "fresh/new" all the times. LOL.
