Article Addendum, August 14th, 2011. ATTENTION: After 25,000 miles with this product on my car I have experienced a serious problem with my original exhaust components. Please see this thread for more information. Based on these developements, I advise the addition of a stress relieving flex joint to the downpipes of this system. 3 You should see some of the looks I get when I tell people that I've changed the exhaust system on my two year old Porsche seven times since I bought it. I...

The dreaded day arrived for me last fall. I'm writing of course about when my factory Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensors reached the end of their life. My car is a 2007, manufactured in June 2007, put into service in July 2007. I started seeing TPMS malfunctions (the readings all went blank while driving, then came back) in the summer of 2014. So I got about 7 years, 80,000 miles out of my sensors before they went kaput. This is pretty much in line with the 6-8 years that other...

Since I DE my car a lot (6 track days last year, planning 8 track days this year) 2010 is to be the year I will bleed brakes before each event. I stand today 20 days from my first event of the season at Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds AL (where PSDS is held) so today was bleed brakes day. Over Christmas I had changed out the pads since they would not have passed the 3/16" minimum by the event date. While I was at it, I bought a liter of factory brake fluid (factory pads, factory fluid I'm just...

I recently installed an accusump on my ’06 Cayman S and I thought it might be helpful to post some info about it. This is not intended to be a step by step how-to, but more of an overview of what I did to help folks understand what is required for the install. Also, please note that I am NOT an expert at accusump installation. This is the only one I have ever installed, and while I tried to carefully follow instructions, I may have made some mistakes. However, I have done a few track days with...

987.1 Cayman LED Running Lights / Radiator Protectors by Mike Santowasso, Cayman Register member "Speedy" Background Several weeks ago, I threw my name in the hat for a chance to take part in a PCA sponsored project to create a “how to” documentary on the installation of a set of LED Spars on a Cayman. The LED spars can be purchased for $399 (and would be provided to me for free). They were designed and produced by PCA member and Cayman enthusiast =11967"]Joseph DeSimone. They’re a...

Removal of the rear interior trim pieces is an unfortunate necessity with a number of modifications, including changing the rear struts, changing stereo speakers, painting the trim pieces, or as in my case, installing a rollbar. This article should help to guide those who are unfamiliar with this process. Step 1 - Remove engine cover carpet. This is fairly easily accomplished by using a trim removal tool to pry up a front corner of the carpet first. Pull back on the front edge to release...

The Good News: There's only one belt, and it is easy to change. The Bad News: The belt isn't that easy to get to. Why? The belt is a scheduled maintenance item. Temporary removal for maintenance or underdrive pulley installation Roadside Repair :(

The Cayman, as delivered from the factory, is one of the world's best handling sports cars but, like all road cars, has had some compromises in its suspension. When Porsche introduced models with enhanced performance such as the Cayman R and Boxster Spyder, suspension modifications were part of the package. Lower ride heights and higher anti-roll bar and spring rates were used in these models. The new X73 Sport Suspension option now available on 981 models includes those same changes. This...

Car batteries have a limited life span and will someday need to be replaced in every Cayman. There are many points to consider when choosing a replacement battery and when considering whether or not you'd like to change it yourself. You may want to search our forums for discussions about batteries before you decide on a battery and/or start your replacement. The battery replacement procedure for a Cayman is not much different than that used in other cars, but different enough that I think...

A clutch is a wear item so it's only a matter of time before we each need to replace one. I replaced mine at 80,000 miles because I was in there to replace a leaking IMS cover seal. As it turned out, my original clutch was still in excellent condition. But there's nothing like the bite of a new clutch, and my leak repair required removal of the clutch, so replacement required nothing more than ordering parts. Because there is so much labor involved, it would have been senseless for me not to...
