    None planned... a black on black 997 manual is the dream drive !
  1. As far as I am aware there was no issue with the other side. We'll try the oil filter first and see what that turns up. What is the estimated time to R&R the engine ? I could get a Kombi or Beetle engine out in under an hour LoL
  2. Cheers, Yes I will order a Durametric, but this may be a case of the horse has bolted with my issue. Other than the oil filter I take it what the mechanic is suggesting, ie engine out is the only way to really check what this issue is ?
  3. Thanks Wizard... I don't have the Durametric, I was quoting the codes the mechanic gave me. Are you suggesting it may be a chain guide ? The deviation seemed a bit scary to me, but can't understand how it runs with such a discrepancy... or do the electronics sort it out ? Seems to run fine and just goes into a rough idle occasionally, Toby (mechanic) says it sounds 'a bit rattly' on that bank.
  4. G'Day... new to forum and my first 911 after 40 years of dreaming and running too many various hot VW's and rotors : ) I have an early 2008 Australian delivered Carrera 2S that had a engine light - go to garage - come on after a rough idle and stall at the lights. I have done nearly 6000 k's since buying the car, and yes I have been using the performance, including a run down the drag strip a couple of weeks previous (13.3 @ 115mph) I have taken it to a local German specialist (we have no Porsche dealer nearby) and the fault codes that it is throwing up are P0303 (cylinder 3 misfire),
