Thanks! Things have slowed down currently. Trying to tag up on a few loose ends and preventative maintenance items so nothing special really. I am rebuilding the 996 calipers for the BBK setup ill be installing shortly worth new seals and hardware. New pads to be installed once I decide which ones I want to go with. I'm out of town for work currently so may be a little longer yet. I also received an OEM new RS2 exhaust manifold and a k24-7400 turbo with a 951 hotside this last month. Still need a couple more pieces of the hardware to make that work.

Don't discount the value of a regular maintenance post... sometimes parts dry up from various suppliers (it's good to know in real time), pics in old threads disappear, etc.

Anyways, carry on.

No real project news as I've been away from home for work. Get home next week so hopefully some of my parts will have arrived and I can get cracking on the work list. In the mean time, enjoy a #Quattroweather pic! Image

Just got these in the mail via Amazon. Always nice getting new tools. I know these will come in handy for my future turbo and exhaust manifold work. Image

Started the rebuild on the Porsche 996 calipers. Replacing all seals along with new caliper hold-downs and pins. Got as far as swapping the crossover line and bleeders on one caliper.

Top tip: use a liberal amount of penetratant and a flare nut wrench. Tap the wrench instead of using constant force. Did all the above but still managed to round off one of the crossover line fasteners. ImageImage

My parts list has grown since I last posted... Not much work done since then but exciting times ahead.

As the motto goes, slowly but surely... stay tuned!
