Reminder... Don't be "that guy" get your pipes fixed before going on track. Turbo dumped coolant today. Fortunately, catastrophe avoided.

Did anyone sort all the information here by model and year? ...and maybe % of production that failed? Early on, I note that a number of posts were split hoses and leaks other than the survey was looking for.

Just curious. I know it is not a simple task. My computer is too slow to read them all.

There is no point to that. They will all fail eventually. The glue fails and the pipes get blown out.

I've seen failures on track of:
996 turbo, 997 turbo, 996 GT3, 997.1 GT3, 997.2 GT3, and a 997.2 GT3RS.

Default Pinning Coolant Lines

I have pinned the coolant lines and switched over from coolant to water-wetter on my 2005 GT3. If anyone is local to Central Massachusetts, I would be happy to demonstrate and assist in completing the process I followed. Hopefully we will all be a little safer on the track.
