Suncoast pedals, anyone try these?

Has anyone tried these? Do they fit properly? They look a little different to me. True? Link says 996 but shows the 986 fitment as well.

yeah everyone has those. The 986 and 996 are the same car as far as interior goes. There was a group buy one of of the forums I think they went for $90. Plenty of instructions on how to install them, I think you need the longer screws than the set comes with. The foot rest is a easy screw in. The clutch and gas pedal need a regular drill bit that will go trhough plastic and dry wall. The brake pedal needs something that will drill through metal.
This is one mod you really don't want to pay hundreds of dollars for because they end up all scratched up.

Awesome, thanks for the great info. I knew most of the front of the car was 996 but these pedals just look bigger to me for some reason. The set on the RUF site doesn't look as nice and is crazy exspensive.

Thanks again.

There are step by step instructions all over the Pelican and Rennlist forums on how to install these. They can be a real PITA because of the tight space behind the pedals. I had a set of these at one point but traded them for colored center caps. They are hefty in weight. There's alos another set sold on Ebay that has a different look but also cheap. The dead pedal on that one wraps around the footrest.
Either way you can't lose. These pedals and new floor mats makes a big improvemetn.

Take a look at the Rennline ones

I will probably go this route as the throttle pedal is adjustable to suit your heel and toe preferences. They are expenisive, but the quality is VERY high.
