I'm looking for recommedations on where to install 3 heads on front of car. 2 outer heads will be standard and center will be TX. In the picture below are the dimensions.

Codenames are fine, but year and model would be better. From that one pic it’s hard to see what we’re working with, but the TX needs to be at least 20” off the ground. You don’t say where you are or will be driving, but you may have to make due with 3 RX sensors instead.

What’s the measurement from the ground to the top of the nose ridge?

about 19". Can the TX head sit behind the bumper?

Nope. I had to cut my bumper, but that's on my Miata which is not a Porsche...

Time to plunk down some change for a custom install from a shop that actually knows what they’re doing. In Florida you may well need that TX head, and someone’s going to need to cut that thing into the bumper under the Porsche shield on the frunk.

You can defeat the DE with 3 RX sensors, the TX is not mandatory, especially on a low profile ride like a Porche.

Thanks for the advice. Do you think the spacing will work if I switch to 3 RX sensors and place them where the yellow markers sit?

Sensor placement is fine but you need 3 regular sensors. TX sensors are not recommended without a minimum clearance from the ground of 20"

@Bwdavis99 give my thread below a good read. The summary is that 3 regular heads did not cut it for my 987.2 against the DETC (Dragoneye Compact). Just picked up a TX today, will be reporting back.
