Without verifying what that link actually takes you to, I will say that if you feel comfortable clicking on it, make sure to right-click, save-as, since that link is the actual pdf.

I can tell you that it is probably a huge file as my 6Turbo workshop manual is a bunch of pdfs that as a combined total of 28 mb.

Carolina Investment Advisors is apparently a Financial Planner in Hickory, North Carolina. I did not verify that link, caution would be advised-

I'm surprised there is no video of the disassembly of a 996tt somewhere out there.

How did the motor mounts work out for you? Any added Interior noise? Are you running a MT, if so how did it work out insofar as shifting dynamics? (Did the shifting seem better/more tighter after the Motor mount change).. I'm looking at going to semi solid mounts, the price point for the Motor mounts you installed seem pretty good.

I like the video cause it contains most of the stuff u need to drop the engine. For instance if u want to change idverter valves or plenum and stuff like that. Dropping the motor gives u plenty of room to work.

This Gent came up with a nice solution for the hydraulic rams for the 996TT wing. He's an enthusiast and Porsche supporter. As part of his site, he has posted a bunch of downloadable forms for the 996/997TT. That's major Props for him. He has linked his URL to other sites.

Also, for those looking for an engine drop video, check out Pelican Parts youtube video on the removal of a 997 GT3 motor. Nearly identical to the TT

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlCsYAGdXl0

Both are stand up vendors and I hope they receive your support.
