Hi All

After rebuilding a boxster I have finally upgraded to a 2002 911 C2..ok I kept the boxster too.

My car is a 2002 C2 manual with an amazing service history and full Porsche engine rebuild.

Have replaced all coils, serviced it and replaced suspension bushings and coffin arms. Have also ordered Koni FSD and Volgtland Springs.

Thanks for the comments all. The engine was rebuilt due to a cam chain issue. Porsche rebuilt it, the owner spent an additional 5k going the full hog. Had it checked by a Porsche specialist...if I didn't buy it he was going to. I have GT3 wheels on my Boxster which I am going to swap across soon.

Had the FSDs on a 335i and loved them. Hope they are as good on the 911.

Anything in particular which i should do or keep an eye on ?

Bore score, hence me asking about the rebuild. Get a low temp thermostat if not already fitted and move to the millers nano oil.

Welcome along. As already said, nice colour.

If your GT3 wheels are Mk2 they were only ever made in 911 widths but if they are Mk1 versions then check the rear wheel width as 996 C2s use 10" whereas the Boxster versions that look identical are only 9" wide.

It's written either side of the tyre valve. Well technically one side is the offset e.g. 65 and the other side of the valve is 9 or 10 for width. Wink

Anyway, enjoy the car, I hope it gives you years of happy motoring. Thumb

PS Which country are you in? I've never seen roofs like those before. Eco friendly?

The following are waiting to be fitted, 4 x new coffin arms, adjustable rear toe arms, adjustable droplinks, koni special active shocks and lowering springs, RPM Clutch kit, Stoptech brakes, radio, new rms and I will change the IMS. What IMS upgrade is the longest lasting ?

Already done, full service all fluids, coilpacks and plus plus a new exhaust.

IMS bearing 'upgrade' = can of worms!

Personally I would just fit a new OE bearing with the cover removed to allow the engine oil to circulate. But only my opinion (I haven't done it, I am taking the ostrich approach...)

Some light reading haha http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=108257

Looking really good in that last pic. You're flying through your list of jobs.

Unfortunately IMS isn't worth going into on here anymore. You'll more than likely be spoken down to and get no further forward. Wink

All you can do is read up on the old threads and make a decision that you see as best. Harv on here has fitted new IMS bearings albeit during rebuilds not pulling it out in situ, so he'll know where to source an original spec/style item and it won't be silly money like an LN item. Maybe ping him a message.

I look forward to seeing your car when it's done. Thumb

I've had quite a bit of work done recently including new end, aos and clutch. Suspension and brake work include, fitted new Koni Special Active shocks and new springs, new coffin arms and drop links, new top mounts and bearings, new air con rads and re gassed and a brake overhaul. It now drives like new.Thrilled!!! I can not recommend the Koni shocks enough Bilstein PSS10s are utterly rubbish in comparison for road use. I race cars so know a good suspension set-up. Keep the Bilsteins for track use only . The Koni Special Active replace the old FSD design.
