Huh? Dont even understand what you are asking. Are you wanting to know what questions you would have? Might want to ask on the 987 section in rennlist

What I meant is whether 987 issues can be addressed here as well as 986. I’ve used Rennlist, but the 986 Forum is a better venue for me.
Thanks for the feedback

As long as you don’t have a 987.2 to brag about no IMSB concern, you are welcome!

I haven't had a 986 since 2008 and they haven't kicked me out.

I 'Never' had an 986... my first Porsche was a 987CS and always felled welcome on this forum, as I identify myself with the members that are actually working on their own cars.

Obviously the only gray area for me regarding the 986 are related to the convertible top and mechanism, everything else IMHO is mostly the same.

Here, I received help and tech support and many tips from members, and also from Pros that kindly offer their support to this forum, specially JFP, thank you all! This place rocks!

You are past due... You have to go out and purchase a 986.

Heck, I've got a 996 Cab but enjoy this forum more than others.

I don't feel guilty as I'm pretty sure ownership of four 986's grandfathers me in.

Wow, nice 928! Great find. I have always liked that model. Good luck on the project, looks like you are making progress on the troubleshooting.
