  1. Some after photos... Definitely took more time cleaning than building this motor....

  3. Welcome to RennTech The problem happened because I don't see any mention of locking the cams, a critical step, to keep them from turning while releasing the hydraulic chain tensioners when doing the IMS, which will cause this exact problem. If the cams are not held in a locked position, valve spring pressure will cause them to try and rotate, and with the chain tensioners release, it usually caused the engine to jump time and pull the IMS shaft to one side. Once this happens, you are not going to get it back to center without a lot of effort. Most likely, you are in

  4. With the throttle cable disconnected squeeze together the top and bottom of the rectangular black bushing and push it towards the front of the car.

  5. Fault code 0470 CAN comfort in single-wire operation Note! This fault was detected by the 'rear convenience system' control unit. Possible causes of fault • Open circuit in CAN comfort (high) • Open circuit in CAN comfort (low) Diagnosis/troubleshooting Visual inspection: In the next troubleshooting section, please check first that the affected pins on the rear convenience system control unit plug connection are neither damaged nor corroded. The wiring and plugs of the affected components must also be checked for external damage and proper contact. Repair da

  7. He's not misinforming people. His statements are corroborated by industry and academic research. If you are interested Lake Speed, Charles Navarro, and Jake Raby have done a lot of publishing on this topic. Not all oils are equal just because they are on an approved list and in fact if you look at virgin oil analysis they vary widely in their composition. Oil companies have to pay to be listed and the process isn't as objective, or "formal" as you put it, as you might think. Viscosity is just one of many variables. I started studying this about a year ago when I discovered my timing chai

  8. 20 year old car - I would look for intake hose cracks /splitting. Many times you can hear an exhaust leak (phish-phish noise).

  9. Possible causes: – Incorrect signal from MAF sensor – Intake air system leaking – Fuel pressure too low – Volume supply of fuel pump too low – Fuel injectors fouled – Exhaust system leaking

  10. The antenna amplifier is located behind the right A-pillar trim. The single white wire in the left A-pillar is the remote control antenna and is connected on the other end of the wire, this antenna wire must also have a specific lenght in relation to the transmission frequency. Hope it helps.

  11. Thanks Geoff, I've got 105k on my '06 CTTS and I'm thinking I might as well just keep it for the long run. I know some things will pop up over the next few years and I've heard of a few with stretched chains, and the Turbos have the same chains as the V6's with over twice the Torque.

  12. The headlights look fine to me.... people obsessing over headlights and BS like that are what makes the 996TT still one of the best cars out there, pound-for-pound, dollar-for-dollar

  14. Part of that rise in price is driven by concern over the widening move to EV's.

  15. If you are even considering that, that's because you don't really like the car and should sell it. To me. For cheap.

  16. Not even remotely correct in this world. But I would agree that Porsche's A40 spec is irrelevant as it is a marketing tool, not a lubricant specification. If you want real specs, consider products that meet or exceed ACEA A3/B3/B4, which are real, technically based and widely accepted performance standards.

  17. Actually, it is not. You simply cannot take values for a smaller battery and extrapolate them to a larger unit, or visa versa. There are many other factors (internal conductivity, heat retention, cell pack, conductor resistance differences, etc.) that complicates such a mathematical solution attempt to the point of being unreliable. This is why battery manufacturers continually test their batteries to see how they rate rather than attempt calculated performance projections. If it was simply a matter of extrapolation, life would be a lot simpler in the battery business, they could save a who

  18. As someone that spent a significant part of his career in the battery business, your use of "assuming the proportions are the same" is more than seriously flawed. The CCA test used by the BCI (Battery Council International, the international technical consortium that sets standards for battery ratings and testing procedures used by battery manufacturers world wide) is very similar to the one used by the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers); which requires storing the finished and fully charged battery a 0F (-17.8 C) for a period of 24 hours, then load testing it to determine its CCA rating.

  19. FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it was the fan. So for future reference of anyone looking. Even if you measure voltage on the signal pins it doesnt mean the signal is incorrect. Also for reference. the VW touareg fan works.....it needs to be the non tow package fan(600w vs 800w). Bought mine for 150 bucks with a lifetime warranty! Feeling pretty good right now! For reference here are all the models the fan came in: UDI 7L0 959 455 E FORD 3M211 5150 BB FORD 1328625 PORSCHE 955 624 135 00 SEAT 7L0 959 455 E SEAT

  20. The Tiptronic transmission has a special tool for fluid. First you have to purchase the tool (expensive) or make one (inexpensive). The tool is the V.A.G.1924, runs about $300. You need the following tools and parts to start: 1. ATF fill tool 2. 7 (US) Quarts of Pennzoil Multi-Vehicle ATF 3. Torque wrench for 60 ft lbs 4. Torque wrench for 7.5 ft lbs (90 in lbs) 5. 17 mm allen bit 6. 8 mm allen bit 7. Torx 27 bit 8. Temperature meter with probe. I used an Oregon Scientific with a probe that has a 10 ft cord. 9. Porsche part 986 397

  21. 1. Pull seat belt rose cover up and off. 2. Undo fastening screw behind it (be careful not to drop it into the chassis). 3. Detach side-panel lining by unscrewing the hex bolt for the rear seat latch. Pull locking lugs of side-panel lining out of the clips in the rear side section and move forward enough to get at the back of the speaker. 4. Disconnect the loudspeaker electrical plug connection and disconnect. Remove panel.
