Finally installed spacers on my 997.2 c2. 7mm/15mm front/rear from adaptec. I know the pictures of other people's rides with much more offset/poke look great but i don't know how it still comes out flush... 7/15 looks pretty flush to me on my car.

Pulled my car out of storage - fired right up! Then ****, check engine light is blinking, and it starts to run a bit funny. Aha, forgot to pull the steel wool out from the exhaust pipes Removed the steel wool and all the other winterized stuff, and it runs like a champ, no check lights

Cool

I took my car out of a 3 month hybernation (broken wrist club) ...and the homelink didn't work.
Drove the car for an hour, came home, and it worked...OK. Hi.

Got caught on the security cam.

I blew the baffle out of one of my gundo hacked cans. So with the 200 cell cats it sounds like the hounds of hell! I now have to drive from LA back to Toronto in my cab. Oh boy going to need some advil

Took it for it's first drive after winter storage and Fabspeed header/sport cat install. Also bedded the new 350mm Turbo brakes all around.

Drove to work, took a moment to enjoy the sunlight before the impending rain ...

Still need to put an extra heavy layer of wax on it soon ...

Where did you get the turbo brakes? How do you like the upgrade thus far?

Haven't pushed it hard yet, so time will tell. Local Turbo owner swapped to full ceramics so I picked up his which only had a few thousand miles on them. I actually ended up using the Turbo front 6 pot calipers/pads and and my stock C2S rear calipers with new 350mm turbo rotors all around and spacers to offset the real calipers and not affect the bias with the stock master cylinder.

Smart man keeping the rears as to not affect brake bias!

Carrera's look badass with the 6 pot fronts!

After doing some research and looking though a lot of conflicting information reusing C2S calipers made a lot more sense. If this was a 4S I'd do the Turbo rear calipers along with the master cylinder.

Thanks
thank you. Looks like you have a fabspeed exhaust too? I have the PSE with the sharkwerks bypass and my fabspeed tips donĺt fit well.
