You are super fast mod-wise, I got mine mid October, still have the way-too-high suspensions and the stock steering wheel

I'll be driving to Easy's cars and coffee in Berkeley tomorrow morning, not sure if that's a popular event on RL.
thanks buddy! The EASY meet is amazing. I was supposed to go but I had some other commitments pop up. I’m going to try to go to next months EASY meet.

Not sure how I missed this thread. Great work car looks amazing.

I might suggest the recaro Sportster CS seats. They give great support and actually make the ride a bit less harsh. I have swapped out a lot of my tan interior to black but have left the carpets and door cards which IMO are the part I like the least but not worth swapping out.

Everyone, thanks for the kind words!

As an update, phase 2 of project 964 will involve a little interior and audio work next month. I'm having RS door cards installed with *gasp* matching tan leather. I was originally going to swap the interior to black, but the tan has grown on me and seems like a shame to rip out the interior which is in really nice condition. Down the line if the interior gets worn, I'll swap to black but for now I'll keep it tan. As for stereo, I picked up a Continental head unit and will be installing the head unit along with Audison components up front and coaxials in the rear.

I'll have pics once everything is installed next in February.

Great! I am also planning on doing some audio work, I'd love to get your feedback once you install something.

What exact head unit have you picked? Who's going to do the install?

I am planning on going with the TR7412UB-OR, I like the vintage look and it has BT.

I went with the same head unit you plan to use. I chose it specifically for the vintage look and the fact that it has BT.

As for the exhaust, I’ve heard the secondary bypass and it sounds too hot roddish and not like a Porsche to me. The cup bypass and cat delete isn’t bad...it’s just missing that extra something. I’ve heard videos on YouTube with the gt3 muffler and definitely love the sound. My only hesitation is it will be a pita to swap the entire exhaust out when it comes to smog every other year.

Bro, I recognize one of the parks from your pics- If you are close to where I think you are, I've got a smog shop for you...

pm me if you decide to do the exhaust and need to pass regularly.

Just a small update. The 964 went into the audio/interior shop I use for my cars. I had RS door panels installed with custom deviating black stitching to match the pattern of the OEM door panel. For the stereo setup I went with a Continental head unit, a JL amp that fits under the seat, and Hertz MPK 163.3 3 way component system in the door. I'm sure not everyone will appreciate the 3 ways in the door, but I like it and the sound system is much improved over the OEM setup.

The new door cards look fantastic!

I am curious, did you weigh the original cards and the new ones to determine weight difference? Also were any modifications required to fit the larger speakers or was it a simple plug and play?

Thanks! Unfortunately, I did not get to weigh the original door cars and the new ones.

There are modifications to fit the speakers. You can see in the picture of the door card a triangular shape around the speakers. The shop build a base for the speakers to give enough clearance for the magnets.
