I am about to order a pair of black axels for my 03' 996 Cup. PET shows tons of options and all part numbers are different (996 GT3, 997 GT3, 997 TT). Can anyone recommend me a part number or model/year type that does the job and fits for sure. Thanks.

I use 996 GT3/Turbo Street Axles on mine, packed with Krytox.

Sorry, I don't have the part number.

replace every other year, which is about 10-12 races no issues ever at track.

fyi, replace wheel bearings as well then.

Found the part number for you:

P/N: 996.332.024.16 (this is the Street 04-05 996 GT3 / 996 Turbo Axle)

Soon to be superseded with 996.332.024.23 according to notes at PAG.

You'll have grease issues, and the grease from the outer boot will liquify and leak out onto the wheels when things get hot, unless you repack blacks with Krytox or Neo.

I'm seeing this on my 6Cup ie leaking out the rear left (most turns on this track are right so left is loaded/g-forced most) ... what's involved in repacking?

Why would a street axel get hotter (leaking out the grease) in a cup car than in a street GT3 ?

I think the leaking factor has more to do with the temperature threshold of the factory street grease vs. high heat grease mentioned above, therefore being less likely to liquify on a racing grease packed axle.
