Getting ready to do the first service on my 996 at my buddy’s place. Going to replace my HVAC Heater Control Valve while it’s up on the hoist at his place.

The stupid owners manual just says that it comes filled from the factory with permanent coolant. And if you have to top up use Porsche recommended…

And since we’re there we’re going to change the oil. But the manual isn’t much help… I’m thinking Mobil 1 10W40…. But who the fuck knows at this point. Rennslist peeps seem to be using 5W40.

If it ain't broke, change it anyways?

Hopefully I can get around to doing a full A/C refresh this year.

  • This Porsche 962 is a remarkable historic IMSA racing car, which boasts outstanding provenance, and which is offered with current FIA papers.
  • Its engine is a 3.2-liter flat-six with a single turbocharger, producing around 590hp, driving the rear wheels through a five-speed manual gearbox.
  • The car is a genuine IMSA racer with the updated composite Chapman tub, which was raced in period, campaigned by Bob Akin with well-known drivers Vern Schuppan, James Weaver, and Hurley Haywood.
  • Chassis 962-C04 retired from IMSA racing unscatched, so it remains impressively original, and sports the red and black livery colors of its original period sponsors Yokohama and Paradyne.

just looked, the 3 I saw in inventory a few weeks ago are gone, best one available at the moment is a gts.

Either way I could order one tomorrow for straight MSRP if I wanted to burn that much cash on a car right now.

One year update!

I'm absolutely 100% still in love with this thing and it has basically become my daily driver at this point. 3 road trips (with a 4th coming up next month) and over eleven thousand nearly flawless miles. It's been a blast to drive, easy to own and work on (for the most part- I've developed a newfound hatred for nylock nuts).
