  1. The Tune RS seems like a good solution to me, you install a new bearing and put a dedicated oil feed to cool it . https://tunersmotorsports.com/trs-development/ims-bearing-direct-oil-feed/ Im no expert on this but why would a dual row non lubricated refit be better?? The whole problem exists because of the bearing overheating leading to failure. http://imsretrofit.com/ If I purchase a car that needed the IMS attended to, I know which one I would fit. I like things lubed. To think that a non lubricated solution is far superior is completely idiotic to me.
  2. Optimistic price https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/somerton-park/cars-vans-utes/1984-porsche-944-automatic-coupe/1223207092?utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=app_ios&utm_medium=social&utm_source=ios_social

  7. Yep, this my car, and just to square the record up, firstly I have a 77 that I am restoring and needed my fix for another P-car (which the bug has only bitten in the last 3 years) to play with. I lusted over a 997 but when the 996 got offered it was too good to refuse. I have had it for 8 months now, the Greek mechanic who owned it bought it of the “old lady” and did the required IMS and co. He drove it rarely in his 4 years of ownership and needed to fund his Yankee Muscle car passion and finish his projects off. Besides his mechanical input the car was in need of lots of dipshit stuff done that had been neglected in its 20 years . Quick flip?? I have put lots of time, money and effort into this little girl to get it back to how it should be, so for those that think that I am profiteering just aren’t quite getting it. For anyone to think they buy a cheap Porsche and not spend any money on it is not quite catching on, this car was sold for a fair price that the previous owner knew that all that had to be done, so was it cheap in the long run??? For those that know of me will profess to my collection of old Italian bikes and the quality of restoration and maintenance/ anal-ism of preserving quality vehicles. My first forte into water-cooled Porkers has been a great experience but now just want something “bigger, better, faster”
  8. Needs to go, sensible offers invited. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/1998-Porsche-911-Carrera-996-Manual/SSE-AD-6002276?pageSource=details&id=SSE-AD-6002276
  9. Thanks to @LeeM I am now the proud owner of this 996.1. It was the bargain of the year for $38k. The “cocaine dealer” rims have been replaced and I have just fitted new shocks all round. I was seriously looking for a 997 but for half the price you just can’t argue and with the money you save on a 996 you can buy other toys!!! Great bang for buck.
  10. I just put a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4’s on the newly acquired 996.1 and they feel great compared the the Kumho’s that were on it. The sidewalls feel stiff and they have good feedback when in hills hoon mode.
