1 pointIn order to see the outside air temp, the car has to have the on board computer option.
1 pointThe booster should have a check valve ,,, now ON my jeep when it died it made a guinea pig whistling noise..
1 pointWelcome to RennTech! Beautiful looking car...….good luck with it.
1 pointThanks I'll Try That....
1 pointGuys, enough with the weird work around Magiver repairs; if you cannot drill the bolt and remove it, you need to drill out the insert and install a new one, but this time put some antiseize on the fasteners and this will never happen again.
1 pointI was lucky enough to get a hold of 2 944's for $300. 1985 turbo which is my project. And a 1987 which is my parts car. Sent from my SM-N920T using Tapatalk
1 pointHi I ordered a PIWIS 2 kit a couple of weeks ago. I finally got round today to connecting it to car and having a play around for the first time and familiarising myself with the menus and functions. Ran through all the headings 1. Fault Memory 2. Actual Values input signals 3. Drive Links checks 4. Coding Adaptations 5. Maintenance repairs and 6. Programming. And then I made a mistake, I was about to finish and out of curiosity I on the programming menu I selected Auto programming and ran it. It starting running but then the installation aborted. The cars modules seemed to have decoded itself. The electric rear spoiler retracted and what I can assume is the cooling fans are constantly on when the car ignition or engine is switched on. I’ve rerun the scan but cannot see any modules on the car and I seem to have accidently wiped the modules. I have spent the remainder of today going through every single menu/option on the PIWIS to try and recode but have had not success in recoding/programming the modules back (I don’t even have a working instrument cluster although the car engine starts and drives) Does anyone have any advice on how I rectify this? I have a 2009 997.2

1 pointI've found no appreciable difference with them in. The center plexiglass windscreen, however, does make a big difference.
1 pointThanks for the replies. When I bought the centre piece, it definitely made a big difference. I had my doubts about the mesh pieces. They are meshes for starters, and also they fit just behind the seat which doesn't make much sense. I will probably save my money on this one then.
