    996 GT3 Mk2 PCCB

    Hi all, I am considering buying a 996 GT3 Mk2 with PCCB. I have them on my 997 Turbo and love them, but I don't know if the first gen set would give me trouble.

     Any feedback is appreciated.

    I have a 2004 GT3 with PCCB. To date I have covered 95,000 miles without any troubles. Original pads and discs! Never tracked though.

    Lovely piece of kit

            95.000miles? what a garage queen you have there !!! SmileySmileySmiley

    I guess you wrote an additional zero to the miles covered Smiley

    if not, i think porsche may get your car and take it to their new museum !! Smiley

    No mistakes folks! 97,000 genuine miles, just about 160,000Kms. Original clutch as well

    They build them well.

    Re: 996 GT3 Mk2 PCCB

    Original clutch? That's just highway miles then... Original pads too?

    Re: 996 GT3 Mk2 PCCB

    97,000 miles...that's good going...I thought 51,000 miles on mine was pretty good going!

    I'm still on original clutch too, and there's some track miles in with mine...I don;t thik track miles actually put much strain on the clutch (no launch starts, heel & toe downshifts)

    Is your car a keeper then? I must admit I like the idea of keeping mine for many more miles...


    Re: 996 GT3 Mk2 PCCB

    Rogere, I would LOVE to have a pic of the instrumentals reading the miles covered !!!, That would be an awesome pic, even more if the car is a 996gt3, absolutely insane !!!!!!!!!!

    All of respect !!!!!!!!

    Mikla,

    I thought the PCCB mk2 are ok.
    You might want to stay clear of the PCCB mk1 though. If I recall correctly, they were suffering from insufficient cooling, which resulted in excessive wear when not used correctly.

     Thanks guys. Things have moved a little far off... ended up with a 997 GT3 RS with the "proper" PCCB!!!

    Re: 996 GT3 Mk2 PCCB

    Now we're talking! The 996 GT3 was a beast, a dreamcar. The mk 2 was better, the 997 rs is a dream, but hell, the 997 mk2 is the ultimate! Don't forget to post tons of pictures and experiences when you get it!

    Re: 996 GT3 Mk2 PCCB

     Had a 996 GT3 Mk1 before and the RS is quite different. I still miss the induction noise of the 996, guess that the exhaust note completely overlaps everything else. The gearlever is stiff but precise, the stability is superb and in summary the car is a stream of emotions.

    Will bring it on track in a couple of weeks, guess there I'll find its true soul!
