    The gemballa kit is awesome on the silver car, I just dont like the wheels, I think the factory turbo wheels are awesome myself, or even the new ones that are optional ( a new take on the turbo twist). I dunno if its more gorgeous than the 355 though, that is one of my all time favorites, and in yellow...my favorite color.

    Allan,

    one more thing, i thought you said that the porsches dont turn any heads though, and that that was something you didnt really like about them? personally, I still say get the last of the last of the last aircooled turbo;) Even if they are a dime a dozen, still awesome. Its wierd, everytime i look at a good interior pic, i swear you just wanna jump in a floor it!!! Dont get that as much in the ferrari, that i just wanna look at :)

    Porsche definately does not turn heads like say a Ferrari or Lamborghini, but a modded Turbo will still get lots of attention, especially when they shoot flames out the back like my old 930 did. And to be honest, the 355, doesnt get that much attention.

    Allan The motor did not need to come out for the Stage 4 kit. The reliability has been better than any other car I have had. It drives better than it did stock!!. The stock clutch is still in place and will handle the Stage 4 just fine "I only have 5k on the ODO"...I will be going with the Sachs Stage 2 Clutch once the Stage 4GTR is in place.

    Hmm, thats what i was afraid of. Ill have to find someone who can pull the motor here on Maui. I wonder why the motor needs to come out. I may need to stay with only bolt ons.

  12. IMO not being a fan of body kits the silver porsche posted looks nice but the new 996TT convertible is stunning the way it looks stock although I love all 3 Ferrari,Porsche,Lamborghini I would have the harest time picking which If I could I for sure get all 3 a new murci,F355 Firano TDF blue, and a silver 996TT cab.

    the autothority 996 is a great car. you'd never think it's as fast as it is. i'd definetly with that type of upgrade if i wanted crazy performance like that.

    Look for the tuner 996TT shootout in the European Car February issue.

    Rumor has it that none of the Euro tuners won.

    Is that the one where Protomotive won? I have experience with them, and from my experience, they suck.
