I installed larger studs front and back. You can do the rear ones by removing the whole brake assembly, including the E-Brake assembly, and E-Brake linkage. But you do not have to remove the hub or...

I would definitely try the check valves. Draining the turbos is very very easy. I have also heard that over long storage periods, oil can pool inside the motor.

EDIT: I would also check the...

Increasing the rear lip by an inch would give you 18x11 ET35 which would be fine for a 993WB. You may need a slight roll depending on the width of tire you are using. An additional 5mm spacer would...

For those with WB 993s. A 14mm spacer would bring these nearly flush. I run 18x11 ET43 Meisters w/14mm spacers (effectively ET29) on my turbo and its flush. Rolled rear fenders would be a must.

These would be fine in front on any 993 (since they are all the same outside of an RSR or GT2). The rears would be way too conservative on a WB 993.

Adding a 4" lip to the rears would effectively...

A few turbo converted or supercharged 993s pop up for a sale from time to time. In the last six months I have seen and looked at one Protomotive C4S TT and one TPC SC'd C4S. I have seen a couple more...

Understood. 450hp is just where I am guessing the car was at before the rebuild (30-40 over stock), not a future goal. Just looking to fix the motor and have it perform just like it did and be...

I would be surprised if your hitting the KW bump stops unless you are very very low. I would rule out the sway bar first if the noise is clunk or thud from the front. Sway bar links can be noisy if...

Are you sure you were hitting the bump stops? I find that my front sway bar links hit the control arm before the shock bottoms out. 993 Turbo with RS front sway bar.

Yeah it looks like an aftermarket copy of the Aero Kit 1/1B. I dont believe its a Techart, which was identical to the 1/1B and had a curved mounting point for the upper spoiler.
