  1. Factory spec for idle speed on both 6 speed and Tiptronic is 700 RPM.
  2. TSB 4/02 1701 Engine Oils Approved by Porsche (dated 5-23-2003) is eight pages of approved oils. In all those pages there is no approved oil that is 10W30. Approved Mobil oils are: EXXON MOBIL CORPORATION Mobil 1 0W-40 ncp GL Mobil 1 5W-40 ncp GL Mobil 1 5W-50 ncp GL Mobil 1 Tri-Synthetic Formula 0W-40 ncp GL Mobil 1 Rally Formula 5W-50 ncp GL Mobil Syst S 5W-40 ncp GL Mobil Super 10W-40 pnp GL BTW... changing your own oil is easy. Maybe 15 minutes - see my Oil Change DIY here
  3. On most of the Becker Radios you use the following procedure to adjust the speed dependent volume: 1. Select the User menu by pressing the down arrow button for longer than 8 seconds. Immediately (within 4 seconds). 2. Rotate the right knob until you come to the GAL display. Use the arrow keys to set the GAL. Settings are Off, and 1 to 7. Default is 3 or 4 (on some radios). 3. Rotate the right knob until END is displayed. The unit will revert to normal use in about 4 seconds.
  4. All are located in the DIY section at the top of each page (Loren's DIY pages). Brake Pad DIY
  5. Tanks are fairly common but a hose is easily damaged also. Could be a leaking hose but a pressure test should show for sure.
  6. That is a Tiptronic steering wheel -- is your car a Tip? If so, the part numbers are correct.
  7. On the front suspension lower arm (see the curved arrow in this pic).
  8. Yes, the MY04 GT3 spec is very close to the X74 specs so it should be ok. You are a little low in the front as the spec is 115 mm so expect some scraping on driveways etc. Also, expect that the front brake ducts are going to scrape or be ripped off.
  9. Yes. Have a look at the pics in the 3rd radiator DIY.
  10. Any time you change the ride height you are changing the camber - so, yes an alignment is always needed. Any good quality shop that can to a four wheel alignment and corner balance should be able to handle a coilover suspension. Why did you choose GT3 specs? What model and year car? 6 speed or Tip? Coupe or Cab? All of these make a difference in what suspension tuning you use.
  11. Yes. The Kit 996 512 903 00 G2X should fit any MY99 - MY01 car.
  12. Have you checked your oil? I know that would not be good news buy it is a possibility...
  13. I thought there were two codes for cars with PCM I. One for the radio entered at the radio and one for the PCM entered at the PCM.
  14. Check out the updated specials at the Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost link. New Carrera Powerkit price; Boxster Sports Exhausts; Litronic Headlights for early cars; PCCB brake upgrades; Aerokits for both Boxster and Carrera; and Cayenne 4 tube exhausts.
  15. Or... jack the car way up from the rear jack point and put the jack stand under the front jack point. (This works on a Carrera but I've heard it won't on a Boxster).
  16. Lower small lip in this photo. It comes in black and can be painted. On the original GT3 it was not painted. (I have a spare and if I damage mine I will likely not paint the new one).
  17. Well... they stopped making most of the matte finish stuff. Same is true for steering wheel stalks. The buttons are matte only now even if you have to replace a broken one.
  18. Yes, but you will need the lower lip and fasteners also. I'll send you the Aerokit Kit Cup II Install Instructions with part numbers and details.
  19. For a MY99 - MY01 GT3 front bumper you will need: 996 505 980 02 G2X Front spoiler, primed finish 1ea 996 505 986 00 Spoiler lip 1ea 999 507 427 40 Expanding rivet; 16.0 mm, 8 mm long for spoiler lip 11ea
  20. From what I can find the factory setting is the 2nd hole from the (open) end. But you may need to experiment as your car is heavier (3487 vs 3043) B)
  21. The electronics can likely be transferred but I think the lens and reflectors are glued in. Could be very tricky? Do you have a pic of the cracked one?
  22. 986 731 903 00 01C Mirror housing with light satin black (USA only)
  23. They are larger and do hang down lower also. Expect them to scrape on driveways etc. Perhaps there is a discount on 2 sets :lol:
