I have an old piece that may be of interest. It's in my shop and I will pull it out and see what I've got. It's an early 911 blaupunct with external amp. It is in rough shape but would make a good...

I share Russ's conservative approach. My own anecdotal experience has paralleled lorens and I too think there is a place for chips. I've been a skeptic but am now willing to experiment with the mot...

I have seen this wood on a factory slope-nose and a 993 as well.
On a side note, as a dealer tech years ago, a customer had his Boxster and 996 both retrofitted with wood. All pieces were ordered...

If you're still looking I have 2 rears and a single front from an 86 951. I have no real need to trade but will make a fair deal on the two rears. PM me. They are in my storage garage and still...

I wouldn't use the generic blanks if possible. The 944 uses the same blank as most late model VWs. The round rubber headed key is typically the ignition and then there is a different key for the rest...

I have the split spoke boxster wheels in that size on my 924s. No problems at all with 225 50s. The fronts are 7s with 205 55s. I did have some rear rubbing early on, but -1░ camber fixed it. Another...

once the piston comes out of the bore it doesn't matter. The rings seat in their position and once they move they will esentially be like new rings. In fact, I did compression test on my 924s...

I wouldn't go with cardone rebuilds. If you need axles get GKN or factory. Otherwise rebuild your own... Its easy.

My 73S had an aluminum rear deck from the factory ( it was a "special order" car). You might want to stick a magnet on it just for kicks.
