Any pix of the wing mounted? The original pix look like the wing is on a 997.

How does this mount? Is it permanent mount? Do I need to drill holes into my rear deck (after removing the current pop up wing?).

Wondering how hard it is to swap the original wing and this ducktail back and forth (for when I go to the track since we don't know the aerodynamics of this ducktail)

The wing weighs just under 6 pounds with the grills mounted.

My last question would be any problems with cooling? The vents look kind of small? Mine is mid 99 will I need a harness, since I have the check light every time I start the car.

The air vent openings are from a GT3 and are larger than the stock 996 so you will not have any problems.

A trend I seem to notice are unfinished pics with your products. Do you have any finished pics? I would think that would help you better market and sell the products, especially to the Porsche crowd as they can be a very finicky bunch. I also think some may lack the vision to imagine the finished product without actually seeing it as well.

Exactly what I was thinking... My delivery may have been less tactful.

Thank you, will be posting more pictures of a few of our customers cars as soon as they are finished installing and painting them on their 996.

Can you give a little more detail on the installation?
Do I pull the fan from my standard spoiler and install it on the ducktail? Is there a fan built in?
If it has a fan built in do I just disconnect my electric stuff and plug it in?
You say it bolts on to the deck. Does it use the exiting holes?
