Is it possible to put 987 seats in a 986?

I found a good set of 987 seats and want to put them in my 986. Has anyone done this? The 987 seats seem to sit lower and are thinner, so I'll gain some head and leg room. I'm sure the connectors...

If I recall, LN estimated 20%+ failure rate. You aren't accounting for cars that got new engines through Porsche, rebuilt with the stock IMS (which was the only option before LN, and the cars that...

The easiest and cheapest insurance is to stop using Mobil 1 piss water in your engine and change the oil more often. I like Shell Rotella 5-40 synthetic.

Performance wise, where does a Raby car fall compared to a new Boxster in 2.9 and 3.4? Seems like a 2 year old new design would be a tough pass if they turn out to be more reliable, faster, and have...

EVO's eat clutches, Subarus break axles when drag raced. Like I said, you can go faster, cheaper, reliably in a Mustang.

STI and EVO are not drag cars, if you want to drag a rear wheel drive car like a Mustang makes more sense. You'll go faster, cheaper. They make great autocross and track cars though.
