#1 cylinder

Model: 996TT, Year:2003, Mileage:22000, Type of use:Both Street & Track
just curious since there is not a sticker on the engine like the old 911. Did Porsche change the location of #1 cylinder when the engine changed from air to water cooled in 911? The air cooled 911 has #1 cylinder at the left rear.What about the Boxster/Cayman since the engine is the other way around?Thanks!William

oil change frequency

Model: 996tt, Year:2004, Mileage:23500, Type of use:Both Street & Track
Hi Guys, I do DE events and change oil every 10 track days. (Mobile 1 0-40). Some members are telling me this is not enough and I should not exceed 5 days. I am in the white group and also do advanced days where I run with black and push myself and the car more. What are your thoughts? Also, what about transmission fluid changes? Thanks, Frank
