OK guys, this isn't rocket science, but if you've never applied one of these this may help you get a really great look from your Cayman Register Window Decal. Yup, that's right. We've got our own window decal. It's the same diameter as the other PCA window decals so you can have one on each side of your car, a balanced set.
A decal will be sent to every new member using the mailing address provided during registration. If you're reading this, then you've done all you need to do to get one.... 367 Comments
Converting from the oem lug bolts to wheel studs and lug nuts is a simple & inexpensive DIY as can be seen in the photos below. I already had several sets of Porsche aluminum lug nuts for street use & steel lug nuts for track use left over from my 993 saving me that cost. Porsche aluminum or steel lug nuts are regularly available on eBay, as well as new from many Porsche parts sources.
You'll need to buy 20 studs. I bought a few extras as spares which I carry in my track box (along with a... 70 Comments
https://caymanregister.org/picture.php?albumid=402&pictureid=5112As a long time sports car guy, I've always missed having an oil pressure gauge in my Cayman. I think I just got used to seeing how temperature, oil life and engine condition can effect oil pressure. To this day, it's something I still look for. So I've finally broken down and delved into another Cayman project. I've decided to install an Oil Pressure Gauge in my Cayman S. After a lot of research, I chose the AutoMeter 4953 2 /16... 110 Comments
This is just a summary of what consolidated, FT and L8Apx have done. :thanks:
First thing first, disconnect the battery and leave the trunk and hatch open. Leave them open until you are done with the DME.
Background information, I am using Traqmate complete kit and Traqdata II.

I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m referring of course to my first two weeks in my Cayman S. As one of the few Americans that had checked the ‘European Delivery’ option box, I had the rare opportunity to explore the limits of my new Porsche without the fear of legal complications. That’s right…. I was on the German autobahn, the A-31 to be exact, and I had just passed one of those nifty ‘No Speed Limit’ signs. I leaned into the throttle and let the speedometer climb.

A third radiator provides extra cooling margin for those of us operating in warmer climates. This thread show a few photos of a third radiator installation into a 2007 Cayman 2.7L. YMMV. I purchased the third radiator kit from Suncoast. I was pleasantly surprised to find out the car was set up to accommodate the third radiator installation. Here is the kit: 79 Comments
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.
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... 49 Comments
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... 16 Comments
987.1 Cayman LED Running Lights / Radiator Protectors
by Mike Santowasso, Cayman Register member "Speedy"
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... 46 Comments
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... 110 Comments
