  1. Update here now I have completed the work and it sounds AWESOME! Now i've done all the work I am really please I did. It sounds absolutely fantastic. Much better than it did with the old PCM2.0 head unit and thats all I changed. I am still running the factory amp and speakers. Some notes for anyone wanting to do this.... - I have a 996 C4S from 2004 with a factory Bose system with the amp located in the spare wheel bay in the front - Had the PCM2.0 double din sat nav unit originally - I installed a Pioneer SPH-DA130DAB but most of this is the same for any unit
  2. Now that sounds like a fun plan @JFP in PA :) If I wanted to try by temporarily removing the speed sensor wire from the relay do you have any idea where I could find that? Someone told me I can disconnect that also but I'm not sure where it is other than the passenger footwell (or did they mean the right footwell, which on my car is the drivers?).
  3. Super thanks @JFP in PA Defeating the system is now my aim :) Someone else suggested that I can disconnect the speed signal wire to the relay in the passenger footwell?
  4. To all 996 owners with PSE, especially those with a 4S. I think my 996 C4S exhaust behaves oddly. I think it's a fault but you might tell me it's normal behaviour. The problem is that I've always had this 'fault' on my car so I don't know if it's a fault or intentional behaviour. If you have the same car, perhaps you can shed some light on this. When I start it, it's noisy and sounds great. It quiets down as it runs for the first 5 mins. I have the PSE system and when I press the button you can audibly hear the exhaust note change - quieter when on and lou
  5. Good to hear from you @mikemcmo . I actually had a play since I last posted. Looks like when the regulator is new, that spring below them is fully compressed and the pin furthest from it will have tension (as well as possibly the others). You can then release the cable cover a small amount each time the cable has stretched a bit. Not sure of the process as you only want to let out 1 each time not all of them. In my case, My regulator was already all the way out. The easiest way to tell where yours is in the series is that the upper pins will have n
  6. I would also like to know about those cotter pins. @MikeMcMo did you ever work it out or try removing one?
  7. Hi all, I’ve been trying to upgrade my factory PCM2.0 since it had a little short and died, but so far I’m still pulling my hair out after hours of trying to get it to work. i have a 2004 996 C4S cab. I have a Pioneer DAB130 double din unit (https://www.pioneer-car.eu/eur/products/sph-da130dab) with the Connects2 CT51-PO04 (https://connects2.com/Product/ProductItem/CT51-PO04). Although that connector harness says for the 997 in many places, it appears as mine is an 04 996 that I have a lot of parts that are also in the 997... i.e. optical connections between phone, amp and cd changer.
