Aluminum Pedals

Well, I'm about to pull the trigger on my first ( and certainly not my last ) mod :

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Porsche-Pedals-Boxster-Carrera-GT2-GT3-C4S-996-986-TT-S_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33700QQihZ016QQitemZ2 60086362370QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

I have some concerns and I need some advice :

1. It looks like you screw these on to the existing rubber pedals. Is this easy to do ? Is it hard to line these up correctly ?

2. Since these are in addition to the stock rubber pedals, do they stick out a lot ? I have long legs and my seat is already as far back as it will go. Will I notice a difference with these pedals ?

3. Any advantages to do this ( other than looks, of course ) ?

porsche986spyder, thanks for finding this for me !

Any help would be appreciated...

Thanks in advance !

Nick

If your gonna drop that much on pedals go ahead and buy RUF pedals. There is a group buy on caymanclub.net (or at least there was).

I paid 69 bucks for my pedals and they look nice. I took the rubber off the pedals before I put the new ones on. Its not real hard, if you can hold a drill then you can install them. The hardest part for me was getting under the dash and Im a little fella.

I have the same set (say Porsche in small lettering) paid $100 delivered for them on Ebay. I posted a thread about it way back. Guess what? Still sitting in the closet. No drill or drill bit to go through metal for the brake. The hardware supplied was also not good.
Don't spend allot of money on pedals, they will only get scuffed up.
I wouldn't pay more than $100 for those aftermarket sets.

Yes. I like those too. And you took the original rubber off?
Was that your choice or did the instructions suggest this?

Mine didnt come with instructions but I could have requested them. It didnt seem right leaving the rubber pads on.

The pedals with the "Porsche" name on them are $50 to $60 more.
They go on easy, look good and add 6 hp.

6 hp?
Man! That's 1.5 hp a pedal!
Where can I source the $69 set? I know: "hp gains not included"

I have the Ultimate Pedals on the 928 and love them. They have custom engraving available so you can have true one-of-a-kind pedals. Mine have 928S4 engraved on the foot rest. I think the total was around $200.
