Mine needed 6 new ones @ 7000miles a little extreme. My opc said that Beru have just changed the material they're made from.
johnsosn replied to renos's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I agree with you, but it is another option. Plus, I never suggested it was "just an ECU (proper term is DME) and filter thing". The dealership does the following: carbon fibre air filter housing revised, race tuned camshaft & cylinder heads different exhaust manifold Sport exhaust Factory warranty 381 HP 306 lb/ft torque 4.4 0-60 $18,699 The x51 doesn't use new camshafts.It re-uses the old ones.

Hi Loren, I wonder if you can help? I've been searching the forum, including TSB's and cannot find the rveccomended manual gearbox oils for the 997. Is it the same as the 996? I wanted to change mine today. Many thanks Simon

Hi Loren I wonder if you can help me? Do you have access to porsche workshop manuals? I need two procedures if possible. workshop manual 272219 Removing and installing three-phase generator, and workshop manual 873419 Removing and installing air-conditioning compressor. Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks Simon
johnsosn posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Hi, I'd like to change the speakers in my 997. I have the standard system (no Bose). Does anyone know the sizes of the standard speakers? Also are there any good makes that will fit straight in? Many thanks Simon
johnsosn replied to Sly74's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi, I phoned Lancasters (opc) and asked them who they used. They done a very good job and all in one day.
