  1. The factory default for the valves is the loud position, so if they are not hooked up, that is what you get. The valves only move to the "quiet" position when activated. The original reason for the valves was the incredibly restrictive Swiss noise laws for residential neighborhoods, so when the vehicle was operating a low speeds, it was quiet.

  2. First of all, the 2000 - 2002 cars are well known for requiring long drive cycles before resetting the I/M Readiness monitors, having to drive 200 or more miles is common. Second, disconnecting the battery will take you back to zero; the monitors in question will have to start all over again if you do that.

  3. For the most part, the regulators are lubed with white lithium grease, and a very little goes a long way with this stuff as it tends to stick to everything, so you don't want excess getting all over everything. The motor should not need relubrication.

  4. We built an entire system to do this that included a hot water heater, and a catch tank, which recirculated hot water with detergent in it to clean out the system. The pump came from a plumbing store. We set it up with hoses that connected to the hose to the thermostat housing after removing the thermostat, and to the line coming back from the radiators. Everything was mounted on a cart so we could role it under the car while it was up on the lift.

  5. I created a video on how to remove and disassemble the front door. This includes removing the bottom trim strip, door lock, door handle, inner door panel, window/frame and door shell.

  7. Parran, I am happy to help, Would you please Email me? john@fabspeed.com If you are buying the system used, i cannot give you any insight on what the previous owner is including in the sale. If you buy it first hand from us I can guarantee all needed hardware is included and will be covered under our Lifetime warranty. We changed the design because customers reported droning in the 2-3k RPM band. The new Gen. is drone free and sounds incredible. Much more worth it in my opinion.

  10. Low fuel pressure - either a leak or a worn out fuel pump.

  11. This was crazy, apparently two different things happened. Fortunately, nothing major. First, the battery ended up having a dead cell. Replaced it and good as new. I was hearing that with the 2021 polar vortex seems that a lot of people had the car batteries go bad, not sure how wide spread though. Second, the sound was coming from passenger seat. The adjustment switch on the passenger front was stuck, but not enough to actually move the seat but just enough for the motor to be engaged...lol Still need to figure out the burning smell! Still take that in consi

  13. What you are overlooking is the simple fact that most PSE post delivery installations never hooked anything up as the default position for the valves is "loud", which is what people wanted the PSE for in the first place. So who's valves are on the exhaust system is pretty much irrelevant. We have probably installed a couple dozen PSE's over the years and I can only remember one that the owner wanted fully hooked up; and later even he eventually said activation of the valves was a waste of money.

  14. The Valvetronic System, when closed, will sound very similar to stock. When the valves are open it will dramatically increase the tone of your Boxster. Our valved systems utilize Helical Vales, Same as what's used in the OEM Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini systems. In terms of sound and performance, you cannot do any better than that system! Fabspeed will even transfer the Lifetime Warranty to your name!

  15. Well, I suffered 'while you're in there' syndrome... I discovered that all of my cooling system hoses, couplings, and tubes were rusted so I removed them but in doing so I decided to remove practically everything except the steering unit. This is the price you pay for enjoying drifting in the snow! It was worth it! I then discovered Dry Ice Blasting so all of the re-usable components were blasted clean. Next, I painted everything with a under body paint. (masked off all of the mating surfaces). The bearing pressed in easily as I heated the wheel housing to 100C and fr

  16. The code is pretty specific, it is seeing a difference between where the MAF is and where the throttle body is located; the leak has to be in between those two elements, but does not preclude that there may be other leaks that have not thrown codes.

  17. You can use a smoke test to find intake systems leak.

  18. P0441 code is EVAP purge valve, alongside the drive side intake manifold tubes. P2281 Code is most likely an air leak between the MAF and the throttle body, the code generally means that the powertrain control module (PCM) has detected a degree of airflow at the mass airflow (MAF) sensor which does not exist at the throttle body.

  19. First of all, these transmissions are very sensitive to the lubricant used; over the years, we have had numerous cars come into the shop with everything from noise complaints to poor shifting issues (particularly in the cold), and for the most part everyone was cured by thoroughly draining the lube out of the gearbox and then refilling with the factory fluid. Most people do not realize that Porsche factory lube, which is a full synthetic, is produced to Porsche specs, and does not conform to aftermarket product specs. At one time, we inquired of several major lube companies if they had an ex

  20. I am starting to debug the Cayenne seat heating system and I'm starting a post with some findings as there was limited information in forum searches and this could be a helpful comparison as we keep these running. The seat heater is actual composed of 4 seat heating elements: a pad that heats the bottom (center), a coil that heats in the bottom bolster left and right, a pad that heats in the backrest (center), and an element that heats the side bolster. The center seat pad also contains a thermistor (a resistor whose resistance changes based on the temperature), and it's role is t

  21. I agree with millerchris85. After all the work and money poured into my CTT it’s eh now and I’d have been better served tuning up my 996TT. If you really must have a sporty drive in a Cayenne then I suggest looking after a 958 GTS, Turbo or Turbo S and having someone tuned them to your liking. Be forewarned though you will wear through ancillaries (brakes, axles, tensioners, etc...) much faster depending on how much and how hard you drive

  25. I was able to retrofit a spare wheel with jack and took kit from an older Boxster (986) into my 2007 Cayman (987.1). Clears front lid without touching. Takes up some of the space but I prefer spare and regular tires as opposed to run flat tires.
