I have a 88 coupe that I will be driving through a few states in a week or so. What are some good suggestions for anti-theft while staying at hotels/unlocked garages?

How do I get the build sheet for my 1989 911

My 1989 911 is not an M491 Turbo Look but it has steel turbo flares and a 930 rear deck lid.  The rear lid has the VIN of the car on the underside.  I would like to find out if the flares were added at the factory.  Any suggestions?

1986 cv joint boot replacement

What is the trick to getting the inner cv joint off the axel?  I want to replace the boots before they split. I have removed everything but the cage and the part that is held on by the clip. Everything I read says they just slide off once the circlip is removed, but I can't get either side to budge. Help!

The part number from the original inner cv joint is 911 332 030 01 LOBRO 42 / 85 W Germany  




Exhaust Update?

I would love to give my Carerra a little bit of help with throttle response, but not looking to make a lot of new noise and want to have a 49 state emissions compliant car.  Thinking of a Steve Wong chip and wondering whether a newer cat and mulffler would be good.  Providers seem to have mostly cat bypass and other more extreme steps.  Would it be worth seeking and installing newer exhaust equipment at all, and if so, where can I find good quality parts that leave me looking stock but with a tiny bit more zip off the line?  Thanks!

Paint Type

I want to do some touchup on my oil tank and I was wondering of the paint is flat black laquer or enamel.  I'm assuming Wurth is the paint manufacturer.  Any help is appreciated.

Installation of Porsche Replacement Radio

I am planning on installing a Porsche replacement sat-nav radio (part no. 91164529100) in my 1988 Carrera.  Everything I've read indicates the new unit will fit right into the existing space.  The service department of a local Porsche dealership suggested that the radio should be a simple installation, "just plug and play".  Since the replacement has features that didn't exist in 1988, I doubt the installation will be as simple as suggested.  The car currently has an after-market system installed by the previous owner.  Are there other parts that I will need to complete the installation?
