Re: I know this is lame but...Do I have a power loss in my M?

That's fair. Not a big difference at lower speeds, but 107 vs 115 trap is a pretty notable difference in top end power. What do bolt-on N/A M3s trap?

It seems to me that Jim@TireRack was referring to the Pilot Sport 4S being slightly better than the PSS, not the Conti.

Re: Brembo Front Calipers - Porsche Boxster S / 996

Sold!

But for future reference, 5.5mm needs to be removed from the two mounting bosses.

Re: Brembo Front Calipers - Porsche Boxster S / 996

No, these are front calipers. You need 996 rears for the rear RallyRoad setup.

Re: Carrera 2 GTS vs Carrera 4 GTS

I'd only get the 4GTS if the car frequently saw inclement weather conditions, including snow. AKA year-round Wisconsin daily driver. In any other scenario, I want the 2GTS!

Re: O2 sensors and V2 headers/100cell cats

I'd expect that those sensors are faulty. The pre-cat o2 sensor should not be affected by headers.

May want to check that the EGT sensor is present and plugged in.

It's possible to code out the rear o2s and still have them appear as "ready". I coded mine out using Martyn's tool and readiness still sets.
