The only things that I will do for the moment is install my sump baffle, put on my spacers for my track wheels and upgrade the ims with the LN double row. Too many niggly things to take care f for the immediate. That said, today I replaced the power steering reservoir, replaced the hood shocks ( no more sore head), cleaned the throttle body , replaced the rubber sleeves on the cross tubes, repaired the convertible roof transmissions and I'm in the midst of my oil change/ baffle install. A busy day! Too much snow to do much else except run the snowblower!

It's a 2004, so the last year of the 986s. With 105k km, it has a third less mileage than my previous car. And it's a 6 speed manual, which was one of the main reasons for the change. My '01 was a tiptronic.

If you are doing the IMS might as well upgrade to the AASCO flywheel and sport clutch
