There seem to be quite a few new guys popping up recently, so I wanted to give them a warm welcome. Please make yourself at home, and please don't get offended by caustic comments cast about at or near you. We are like an asylum here, all sentenced to life together. We get along most of the time, but not all.

What you will find here is camaraderie, knowledge, love of 924s, and a real willingness and desire to help out. So again, welcome!

Your first reading assignment is HERE. You MUST understand your fuel system before you open the hood and begin staring, and you MUST eliminate ALL vacuum leaks before tinkering.

Your second is HERE. As you might expect, there have been many discussions and projects regarding upgrades which have taken place here over the years, and one of our members (with ample time on his hands, apparently) has gotten an excellent start on indexing it all in a way that makes sense.

Take care, and long live the Toofah.



Rasta, Shaggy & Red

(opens door and peeks in the room) "Did someone say something about boobs?"

(everyone yells in unison) "NOOBS!"

"Sigh, okay then."

There is differences between model years, motors and electrics and we cant help if we dont know which car you are referring to.

I would also like to welcome everyone!!!

I'm kinda new myself,and can usually be found in the engine transplant forum.As this is where they keep me,and rarely allowed into the general population.

It can be oh-so lonely down there,so feel free to visit me anytime.

Thanks...
Chad

Hey! That's no way to talk about Rasta - you know he's sensitive about his weight!

Oh, by the way, welcome, Noobs!
