What have YOU done to your 986 today ?


Recommended Posts

I added a spoiler indicator today. Only took 20 mins and works really well. Plus added bonus it uses up one of the blanks on the dash.

Can a mod change the thread title to "your" instead of "you're" my grammar nazi comes out every time I see it ?

Shame you only get to see it😂

Agreed, I would love to cut out the engine cover an replace and replace it with clear Perspex and LEDs.

Something like similar to one fitted on a Cayman would be amazing.

Very easily done go for a drive with just the rear carpet removed and again with the engine compartment not fully locked down, trust me you won’t put up with it for long!

Hi. I’ve been looking at doing this myself having seen the part online. Is it an easy install, I.e. do you have to remove the instrument cluster to install? Cheers.

Yes cluster has to be removed, the wires that push in are a little fiddly though

Reattempted the install of the infamous 911 plenum and larger throttle body from the Cayman, ported to 80mm. The car is now running, thanks to @edc and other BoXa members for your advice in finding the massive vacuum leak.👌

I've yet to take her out for a spirited drive but first impressions are very responsive and it sounds awesome. 😄

here are some pics.

I see you've got the 987 airbox in too. What's going on with the white zip tie?

The 987 airbox was a nice addition but a real pig of a job to do. The white zip tie is to prevent the oil breather from coming loose, it will stay in place but because of the angle of the bend there is unwanted tension which may pull it out. I'll change to a black on soon.

Replaced the ignition switch on my 986 - resolving a lot of gremlins. 


Still need to get the key remote buttons re-linked by an OPC - can't work out why Wilmslow quote twice as long as one in Kent for the exact same task?

you do have to remove it to pop 4 wires in but it was easy and its a good chance to clean all the grime and dust from under the binical .
