The hardest way in many cases is the best way in the long run. I'm glad the job can be done without removing the rear bumper and exhaust system. In my opinion, that would seem to be harder,...

You can go to the dealership for a build sheet or purchase a COA from Porsche if that would put your mind at rest. But I quickly searched the VIN you posted and it's definitely an authentic Porsche...

All of these cars have a timed courtesy light feature. I'm not sure of the exact time. I think it might be 2 min or so? Depending on the car, the light should go off after a short time, then the...

I wish you'd do a video on explaining in detail why you believe the early 996 cars like the '99 model are superior to the later ones. I've purchased many 996/ M96 engine books and have yet to see...

Internal technical service bulletin - 33/18 & 38/18. Go to your local Porsche service center and ask for it. It's not a public document. It's obvious they are pushing 986 and 996 owners to their own...

I just listened to the video and at around 1:18 - 1:30 I can hear the infamous ticking sound. I'd watch Part 4 that Mike posted and get it examined with a bore scope.

This problem has been a sleeping giant. Thank you, Porsche! Even the 991 crowd is seeing bore scoring. It all boils down to how much you want to keep this car around. If you like the car and want to...

Driven DT40 or MOTUL X-Cess 8100 5W40.
