I’d like to hear from 986 owners who upgraded to SSK & I’d appreciate a brief test drive to “feel” the difference & make my mind about it.. thanks September 22, 2016 at 11:46 am #18213 Douglas BradshawParticipant I have this on my 06 Cayman S and it works beautifully- very direct and connected, precise feeling. Not sure what the difference is on the 986 vs 987. The 987 had some plastic internals that this unit replaces with sturdier metal ones. Hope this helps, Doug Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
