I've used several different systems as I like to tinker (this post is mostly a copy/paste from another post I made on another forum, with the exception of this intro) - I have no affiliation with any of these vendors - these are just my experiences with some links added for convenience. If you already have a really good camera (GoPro) and you want to provide data, and also use the data for driving improvement, I am liking my current combo of AIM Solo DL + camera, and I use the free Dashware...

The two plastic trim strips under the front hood, are attached to the body with three pieces of velcro. My 8 year old 2010 987.2 trim strips were flapping due to the velcro giving up. The velcro was done sticking to stuff... I spent some time researching high-temp automotive grade velcro. This is mainly why I'm posting this, as well as some advice after replacing it myself. I ordered the velcro from Amazon, here is a link that will certainly expire. ... and the details that...

This Article provides a guide on how to rebuild the brake calipers of a Cayman S (987.1S). The instructions in this article can apply to other Porsche models that use Brembo alloy monoblock painted brake calipers as well. The only variations will be in the size and number of pistons, seals, and dustboots. Otherwise the instructions presented here should be very similar. This guide should not be used for Ceramic Brakes. Warning Brakes are a critical system on any vehicle. On a performance...

The flexible brake lines that connect the calipers to the brake line hydraulic system are subject to wear and should be replaced periodically. This article provides a guide on how to replace the brake lines on a Cayman. In this article I replace the factory brake lines on my Cayman with new Braided Stainless Steel Brake Lines. Braided Stainless Steel Brake Lines are a relatively inexpensive way to improve the feel of your Cayman's brakes. The intent of braided stainless steel brake lines...

As many of you know, 987.1 Caymans came with no front or rear brake caliper/rotor cooling ducts. This can be problematic for cars that spend a lot of time on the track. Cooling of the front calipers and rotors can be handled in a very straight forward manner by using 997 GT3 front cooling ducts. The 997 GT3 front cooling ducts are inexpensive and are a drop-in part for the 987.1. The rear cooling duct is a little more complicated, but not too much more. Also, although there are other ways...

A question came up in a discussion about testing Relays. Relays seem like magical little boxes of wonder. They often catch the blame for mysterious electrical gremlins because they're operation is a mystery to most auto enthusiasts. But if we really stop to learn what a relay is and how it works, we will learn that they are really quite simple. Understanding and being able to test them can help us cross them off the list when things go wrong. So let's take a lesson on Relays, how they work and...

In Germany, every new Porsche is delivered with a set of Emergency Triangles and a First Aid Kit. Those of us who opted to do a European Delivery were surprised to receive these cool little safety devices at delivery. These are cool little keep sakes that I'd like to hang on to, and as the German TUV knows, it's not a bad idea to have these in your car. The First Aid kit fits nicely into the storage box in the trunk, but the triangles won't fit there. European cars have a nifty little set...

This document describes replacing the Air Oil Separator(AOS) for a 987.2 The design of the part that attaches to the motor casing is slightly different that other Porsche AOS. There are two round stubs that have o-rings on them, so no more hose clamps. Otherwise, it seems very similar to previous AOS designs. Two bolts on the AOS, E10 torque 13Nm(9.5 ftlb.) Here are the steps to replace the AOS: 1) Remove the top access hatch.

My new-to-me 2009 987.2 has 40,000 miles and it is time to change the spark plugs. Although there is no problem, IMO it is wise to change plugs to prevent them from galling to the cylinder head. I offer this little guide as there doesn't seem to be any 987.2 plug change instructions on the site. Mine is a base 2.9 liter but the S models will be very much the same. Tools you will need include a 10mm socket, a 10mm ET socket (external torx), an assortment of torx wrenches, and a spark plug...

Changing the oil and filter on a GT-4 is not rocket science. This procedure is a little different and a little more difficult on the GT-4 than it is on other Caymans. There are a few specialty tools I would recommend you obtain before tackling this maintenance task. With a few tips and tricks in mind, even an amateur mechanic can handle this job. 1Torque Values Fastener LocationDescriptionTool SizeTorque ValueDrain Plug18mm Aluminum Drain Plug8mm Hex Driver37 ft.lb.Oil FilterPlastic...
