Be careful!! I may be visiting sooner than later. We have friends in SF and San Rafael who we've been talking about visiting. Now that the kids are getting bigger it just may happen.

I will ping you if/when we do.

Yep, that's exactly what I did! There is a "required" service at 90k according to Porsche and at the advice of some local 993 owners, I will continue do a major service every 30k.

Hey guys, include the SAI valve in every major service you perform. P/N 993-113-250-03. Preventive maintenance.

I hate my impatience. My order from Pelican Parts is going to the office but I won't be there tomorrow so I went to BAP-Geon and bought some belts from them. Anyone heard of Bando belts? I'm so pissed at myself.

From 29 years of experience, don't put anything on but Porsche factory belts, it will save you a lot of headache.

This is so true (but often, unfortunately ignored).

At 28K miles - I just had my 30K-service done. Altho' NOT stipulated in the official-service-interval-ese - I ordered the part from AutohausAZ and asked my mechanic to change it.

It took him 4 hours (and he's an expert!) - and he had to fashion his own tool - a modified crows-foot. He said it took a LOT of 'soaking' to get it to (eventually) budge.

But the job is done. :-)

I asked him to keep the old one (even if he destroyed it during removal) so that I could take a looksee at the amount of carbon build-up. As it so happened there was no carbon inside, and I mean none, some rust, yes, but not carbon.

Even though this particular 'part-replacement' added a significant amount to the bill -- I'm still glad I changed it though. Here in the NY area - a check engine light / SAI-induced or otherwise - literally grounds your car.

and I haven't even gotten the labor bill. I hope I didn't miss anything. Parts from Pelican. I have to skip the M030 suspension for now.

Wouldn't hurt so much if we didn't have a massive contractor bill for the renovations on the house. Oh well.
Are there parts sold as "packages" for the respective scheduled tune ups anywhere?

Not that I have seen. Pelican makes it simple. 1 click. If no one else is doing it, I would highly recommend it for people like me who who have been mainstream online buyers for several years.

Dont forget to add pollen filters, sai valve, belts, and spark plug wires--which the sai valve and wires being optional. Pelican was out of the Beru wires.

I stole this list from Gerry, with a few other things Im adding for my schedule service in the next couple of weeks.

TO BE DONE
(Note: * denotes parts supplied by me)
1. * Suspension upgrade: from Viper Bob
a. 4 X Bilstein HD shocks (with 30mm extra threads)
b. 4 X ROW M030 Springs
c. Front 22mm M030 Sway Bar
d. Rear 20mm M030 Sway Bar
e. Rear Drop Links
f. Front Drop Links

2. * Change spark plug wires-Beru
3. * Change air inject check valve (SAI check valve)
4. * Change both cabin air/pollen filters
5. * Change the engine air filter
6. * Change all 12 spark plugs (yea, esp. # 12 that, I know, is a PITA)
7. * Change both distributor caps
8. * Change both distributor rotors
9. * Change fuel filter
10. * Change engine oil (I will supply 10Q Mobil 1 - 15W50)
11. * Change large oil filter
12. * Change small oil filter
13. * Change A/C compressor drive belt
14. * Change Alternator drive belt (inner)
15. * Change Alternator drive belt (outer)
16. * Change power steering belt
17. * change ignation coil wire
18. Change manual transmission fluid.
19. Bleed/flush the clutch hydraulic system
20. Bleed the brakes
Note The brake system was completely flushed less than 7 months ago by Motorsports--might as well do it again (ATE super blue)
21. Please perform all the (remaining) normal checks, lubrications etc. as specified in the
60k service interval. In particular, please re-lubricate/check tolerances of the manual
transmission gear-shift linkages/bushings etc.
22. Refinsh all 4 wheels (still need you to look at them) you quoted me $500
