Dear Joel: Here I go again with questions. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Holiday Season and that you enjoy welcoming the new year. OK. Here are the questions:1. Last time I wrote I asked about wheels and you responded that the Sport Classic II wheels were a good choice and recommended 18X8 front and 18X10 rears. I can get a great deal $1,500 for a brand new set, however they are the 996 wheels and only available in 18X7.5 and 18X10. Will the 1/2 inch in width make a big difference? Since they are the 996 version will they fit a 993 without spacers, etc.?2. When we last discussed performance improvements for 993 you made several suggestions. I have been looking around and although confused by claims form different manufacturers I seem most impressed by the Fabspeed, Maxflo mufflers, their airbox and suggested DME. Have you heard any derogatory or positive remarks about Fabspeed products and overall performance improvement? 3. Oops! I lied here is a third one. When we discussed suspension you indicated a stiffer torsion bar to stiffen the CAB and perhaps shocks. It appears that my 993 has Bilsteins although I do not know what type. What are your recommendations for autocross and PCA events e.g. track etc.?Once again thank you for your recommendations and always prompt responses. You are certainly on of the reasons I like being a member.Mike Pons
