Looks good. I like it. Do the multi function buttons work?

It's pricey but seems somewhat reasonable from a horsepower increase vs getting an S, GTS or Turbo for the same model. Gains seem more realistic compared to other intake / exhaust mods and I can't see the point of paying $1k for a ECU tune for minimal HP gain without doing something to the car.

Is this a DIY project (I see 12-14 hour estimate on install time)?

Nice increase in horsepower.

sweet! Is it a smaller diameter than the standard 997 wheel? I have the sport wheel and wish it was smaller.

I am also looking into a steering wheel swap (see separate topic), and according to my info the 991.2/Macan/... steering wheel is the same diameter as the triangular 997.1 steering wheel (37.5 cm).

Awesome mod. Sometimes I wish I didn't have MF because from what I've read, these swaps are so much easier and more straightforward without it. Please keep us posted on how it goes with the module you have coming.

The Macan/991 wheel is a bit smaller than OEM wheel didn't measure but I had them on end next to each other i would say .5"-.75" smaller.

While the rest of the country froze today I took advantage of some nice Texas weather and decided to wash and wax my 997.2. Man black looks beautiful when all clean....at least for the next 20 minutes. LOL.

I installed a 991 front spoiler using EMC2's "B" adapter kit. I am really pleased with the new look. So much so, that I'm now considering copying his side-skirt mod and install, and buying his rear diffuser pieces to wrap up the look.
