  1. +1 Sunset Porsche is an excellent site p.s. I see you're in Brooklyn. I used to live in Clinton Hill.

  2. Porsche has typically used gear oils that are designed to their specifications, particularly in the five speeds because of the synchro ring materials of construction. As the result, the factory fill gear oils lack any API or "G" gradings because they are unique. A lot of the smaller aftermarket suppliers claim they have "equivalent" products, that in reality are not. Over the years, I have lost count of how many gallons of aftermarket gear oils we have drained out of customer cars due to complaints of poor shifting, particularly in the cold, noise, etc. And that includes a lot of Redline, Royal Purple, and Amsoil products. And except for transmissions that had sustained damage while using these aftermarket products, every time we switched the car back to the factory fill, all the customer's issues disappeared. Years ago, we contacted all the major gear oil vendors looking for a true match to the factory gear oils; Mobil 1 summed up best when they told us that "Porsche uses totally unique gear oil formulation requirement's, which are made to their specifications, and which do not match any of our off the shelf offerings. And as Porsche represents such a small segment of the overall market, we will not be attempting to replicate their formulation requirements."

  3. I think you've already answered your question. That oil is not approved for the g86 tranny.

  4. 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.

  5. Update! Actually solved the problem a while ago and forgot to post. So turns out the failing O2s were actually failing fuel pumps. I asked my shop who had rebuilt my engine after I burned it up to do some fuel pressure and volume tests after I got some really concerning live data on the Durametric during tests drives. The live data was showing under load - even light loads - I was running super lean and then when getting in the throttle I would load up and then off the throttle it was instant too rich and snap crackle pop what’s that smell??? My Pig sounded like a poorly tuned Maserati with a fart pipe. Under the hood we go and sure enough instead of maintaining a solid 4-4.2 bar my fuel pumps were starting out at 3-bar and dropping down to 2-2.3 bar at WOT hence the hesitation big gulp of air that the ECU couldn’t compensate for check engine light let of the pedal throttle slams shut and snap crackle pop bang smell all that raw fuel? So the injectors and O2s I figured were good 48lb. Bosch units that were installed when the rebuild was done so only other thing to double check was the ECU itself and the fuel pumps. So instead of pulling the ECU sending it out and waiting we tested the fuel pumps straight away and therein lied the culprit. Man they were weaker than my stream at 2AM after a hard romp with the side chick (don’t tell my wife). In with the new pumps and filter and voila!!! The Pig is an angry wild sow again! After doing the intercoolers and fuel pumps I had the motor retuned again and man it’s torquey. Smooth as silk too. I regularly break my rears loose at WOT in 2nd and the up shift to 3rd. But honestly now I’m getting older and soft and it’s not as much fun anymore. The jolt really messes with my arthritis... So I think next project will be some bigger brakes on this beast and then I’ll let it go. Maybe one of the kids will enjoy it. We just got a Panamera e-Hybrid for our daughter and she digs it. I like it too but she won’t trade. I even offered my 996TT to sweeten the deal but she won’t budge. **** kids...

  6. 111,000 miles so far. I’ve put 6,000 on so far this year. Discovered the AOS needs to be replaced day before yesterday. Looking forward to the tinkering opportunity!
