  4. Hi guys, I am really in a need of help from you guys on the issue that I have with my 2004 Cayenne Turbo. I really love the car and it drives like a dream...until suddenly: Noise from front RHS (driver's side) developed. Clicking noise could be heard and felt vibrations for all speeds, regardless of RPM...the vibrations is like riding the car on railroad tracks when reach 40mph. What has been done: 1. Replaced Lower Control Arms (RHS & LHS) 2. Reconditioned front CV joints (RHS & LHS). 3. Replaced front final drive bushes 4. Drained and replaced front final drive oil 5. Tyres are balanced and aligned. Checked the following: 1. Cardan shaft - carrier center bearing still good with rubber bushing intact (no cracks) 2. Sway bars bushings are good, gave it a good wiggle to check on conditions. Solid pieces Please see my video on the car's noise and symptoms Thanks a lot for your time and hope you guys could advise me. https://youtu.be/6miCEEuV-Xg

  6. The booster should have a check valve ,,, now ON my jeep when it died it made a guinea pig whistling noise..
  7. "Can you give me a code for my PCM? These units are manufactured jointly by Siemens and Becker, and the only place where you can get the codes required is from the dealer/ OPC. The PCM’s require two codes, the ICS/Siemens code, and a Becker code. The ICS is the first code requested. Sorry, the only place you can get a PCM code is from a dealer/ OPC."
  8. kbrandsma...is the car a tip? If so, any work done on the tranny? joe...the bolt shown now for that application is threaded halfway. OP has one with only first quarter threaded, but...

  10. I would stay away from the single mass flywheel for several reasons. Noise and chatter are problematic on the street, and both Porsche an a renowned Porsche engine builder had recommended against using them unless the engine's rotating mass and the single mass are dynamically balanced together. People tend to forget the dual mass is the ONLY harmonic dampening device in the rotating mass, removing capability that can take you to places you don't want to be. The upgraded clutch is also a toss up. For heavy track use, it may have the advantage, on the street, not so much. We have had customers run factory and replacement factory units with excellent street drivability and very long lives. The BBI slave is another questionable. Yes it changes the clutch pedal feel, but installations have be problem prone, including premature failures which the manufacturer continues to write off as due to the wrong fluid being used. But multiple cases have shown that to not be correct. As for your IMS bearing, while they are inspecting it, have them remove the rear seal so it can mist lubricate. We have many running this way with no problems.
  11. Hello all, I've got a 2008 997 C4 w/ 56k miles on it. It was cold this morning (30 degrees F) and I noticed clutch slip for the first time since I bought the car in higher gears under full throttle. The clutch pedal feels very mushy and lost alot of its spring on the return. I stopped by my local shop and he confirmed its the clutch. The car is my daily driver but I do autocross about once a month and intend to track in the future. I told myself I'd get the light weight flywheel when its time to replace the clutch, and so it seems that time has come. I'm not adverse to the extra noise of the LWFW, but I've heard that you shouldn't do this mod on a C4. I see sharkwerks has a C4 project car with the LWFW so I assume it worked out, but who knows. Aside from the flywheel obviously I need a clutch. I've been looking at the Sachs stage 2.5 performance clutch kit, and it seems like a good option. I've also heard that the BBI clutch slave cylinder is an upgrade that would be helpful for clutch performance and feel. Questions: -Anyone have any experience with a LWFW on a C4? -Anyone have any experience with the Sach's stage 2.5 kit on a C4? -Any other clutch kit recommendations? -Anyone have any experience with replacing the clutch slave cylinder? Note: I'm going to get my IMS bearing inspected but if its not leaking I think I'm going to pass, seeing how I have 56k miles on it with no issues. Perhaps its past the infant mortality stage? Thanks, Jim
  12. Welcome to RennTech! Beautiful looking car...….good luck with it.
  13. How about #3 here Brake Master Cylinder Brake Booster Pre-charge Pump WWW.AUTOATLANTA.COM
  14. There is a vacuum line to the brake booster right behind the firewall. Have you checked that? Might be a bad seal or something. See #10 here Brake Master Cylinder Brake Booster Pre-charge Pump WWW.AUTOATLANTA.COM
  15. Hi..I live in rainy Ireland and this has been a real problem in my 996 Cab. I brought your water drain diagramme to my garage and they removed the interior side panel to find an easy solution. A number of drain tubes collate into a collection point like a mini funnel which had built up a pot of sludge and water could no longer flow through same and out of the car...so diverted to the back foot wells. Who thinks up the stupid systems??
  16. @dwtaylorpdx - this is a great idea because it sounds a lot like a fluid pumping noise / cycling noise ... I took the advice of pulling the ABS fuse just now though and continued to hear the noise. It seems to becoming for just behind where the clutch master cylinder ends, possibly a bit lower than that. Thanks for the idea, it’s one less thang I have to worry about and I’m glad it wasn’t a failing ABS pump!
  17. Ive just had a dyno test on my Boxster S, 2000 model, 158 000km, RHD, daily driver. I have a 'dip' in the graph readings for both power and torque between 5 800 - 6 300 r/min - see attached. Any thoughts as to what this could be caused by? No misfires or any other symptoms. Scanner shows no fault codes. Im satisfied with the results, bar the 'dip', as the flywheel HP is usually about 12% more than is achieved at the wheels. Boxster HP graph.pdf
  18. I've had one ABS pump on a BMW go south,, it made some really odd noises when the pressure pump started eating its own guts, if the accumulator does not come up to pressure,, it will run for quite a while,, You can always pull the ABS fuse and see if it still makes the noise.. Or pull the beuty cover in teh frunk and have someone turn it on whle you listen the pump is fairly obvious in my 2003.. 🙂
  19. Good point. But would that produce the complained of noise? I still love Mysterious Porsche Mysteries.
  20. Shock bump stops can hang when dirty at the the top and collect crud and create a rust line around the rod..
  21. Option: Add a PWM to the feed to the high beam, turn the frequency down till its still barely white. You power the PWM from a hot when key on source. Its the way my EV was wired,, worked fairly well. Lights up the headlight bucket without pulling too high of a draw.
