Welcome! :cheers:

By the way, '99 isn't affected by the IMS issue (EDIT: to the degree of the '00/'01+ MY, that everyone is concerned about).

I drive my 986 in the snow, although not as much as I used too, mostly because I now have access to another car. I have never had a problem, but since the 986 has about 4" of clearance, if the road...

Ugh. Sorry to see that, it's definitely repairable, but like you said it depends how much the repair will cost vs the value of the car. Personally, I would insist on them paying for the repair,...

If it's been desnorkled and has a red clip that's at least +25HP right there!


In all seriousness, a chip by itself would not come anywhere close to that kind of increase.

What kind of stand is it? If it's a wall mount one it won't work because the 986 and 996 tops are different lengths, if it's just a cart it will probably work.

Search for info on Durametric. I believe Autel also has something comparable although I haven't used it. The next step up is a few thousand on a PST2 or PIWIS.
