Wow dude, totally false. You were the first to post in the thread and said simply 'look in the 987 section'. Yeah, that's a lot of help. You only offered your advice after I called you on this...

Funny how when someone asks for advice about a 987 you give them grief and tell them to look in the 987 section.....

How come no comment about looking in the 996 section??

Yes, when you ASKED them about a water pump, they discussed it with you. In this case though, it sounds like you went to the shop and said hey, install an LN bearing. So they did. Not much to...

I had Conti's on my Box when I got it, so had about 30K on them, and will say I was very unimpressed. The grip was poor - lots of tire spin when wet.
Switched to PS2's and was blown away with the...

I disagree. The shop did as they were told - they installed an LN bearing just like the customer asked.

One of the big challenges up north - there is not a huge spread between a late model 986 and an early 987 - so many opt for the never, less IMS issue vehicle. The 986 is either a bit overpriced in...

Yes and no. The jury is still out on the IMS on the 2006+ models. Some say it's a 1% fail rate - but the evidence is still to be seen. There is no doubt the IMS on that model year is far more...

It's funny....many of us on here are "older" and grew up with this and actually liked it way back when. I'm sure many of you remember the old family wagon with the wood - it was stylish in it's day!

Why? Because they can't handle the extra power? They don't want to save a couple bucks in gas? They don't want to drop their insurance a bit?

So where is the sweet spot? The Model T? Cars built in the 60's? 70's?

I don't agree that cars are taking the driver out of the equation - not completely anyways. Evolution is all around us...

Totally looks off. Where is the spoiler? Speed humps look like they go all the way to the back. Could be a good project though, bet you could get it for a lot less than advertised.

Can anyone confirm - does the 987.2 have the same cluster size as the 986? Wondering if these rings will fit a 987.2
