  1. Sorry, I lost track of this thread. I've been using Mobil1 0W40.
  2. Yes, TSB 3/00 1728 Lack of Oil Pressure on Start Up -- dated 7-27-00 was performed on the car about 2 years ago. The check valve has the light blue paint dot, per the TSB. The check valve part number in the TSB is 996 207 012 73. The part number put into my car is 996 207 012 74, which supercedes 996 207 012 73.
  3. Car is a bonestock 2001 996TT with 60K miles. Sometimes when I start the car after it has been sitting for 4 days or more, for the first 2 seconds the oil pressure gauge will read zero and the engine noise is rough and loud. Then the gauge zooms up to 4.5 and the engine note smooths right out. Engine runs fine otherwise. The car has had TSB 1728 Lack of Oil Pressure on Start Up completed, with the new check valve PN 996.207.012.74 installed. I’m just wondering if this is typical behavior or something I need to resolve.
  4. Could I also get thoes instructions? thanks Me too, please! One of my rams is wet and I'm getting the spoiler control failure message, even though it still seems to be fully extending and retracting at the moment. A quick look at the instructions will give me an idea of what I might be getting into. Thanks
  5. Yes. At the track, I install Pagid yellows without the anti-rattle plates (ARPs). Afterward, I reinstall the stock pads and re-glue (with high-temp RTV) the ARPs. Thanks! Whats an High temperature RTV ? RTV is an industry acronym for Room Temperature Vulcanizing. It's a silicone-based sealant. Common brand is Permatex. They sell several versions. I use "Permatex High-Temp Ultra Copper RTV Silicone Gasket Maker".
