  1. Sorry to hear you got screwed.. Those guys SUCK big time. There are a lot of reports like yours on rennlist about those jerks. I would NEVER buy anything from LA Porsche dismantler. Let others be Warned
  2. I heard good things about these guys Custom fit Wetokole
  3. HI, Congrats on your new P-car... Looks just like mine expect mine has a 4 on the back. One of the best cars I have ever owned, just plan on having 1-2 thousand a year in maintenance costs. 1) How do you know this? Instead of replacing first which is not cheap ($350) Try taking it out and using some contact cleaner. That should do the trick 3) IMPO I did the 3.6 MK II Mod. It's very close to the real PSE that porsche sells for $1500-2000 but only cost me $70. Sounds great. Check out Rennlist and search for the PSE mod and read about it. Won't give you any more power but does sound 10x better. 4) IMPO not really worth it, but other will say different. Do a search and you will have a better idea of what works best for you. It really is hard to get more power out of these engines. The best mod for the price is a SSK I like the B&M should be able to find it for $199 Drive safe and enjoy Aaron
  4. I hope you have time... I would take the deal the dealer is giving You should go over to Rennlist and see how long its take to off load 996 these days. I won't even say how bad prices are right now Good luck
  5. Smoke= AOS would be my guess Squeak= Take belt off and start the car. Does the noise go away? If so it could be an Acc or pulley If noise does not go away, remove the oil cap and run the car. If the noise goes away then its the AOS Temp= The weather has been getting warmer. I say normal, but like others say clean the Radiators
  6. Enjoy your new toy :cheers: I also added nav and it makes the straight roads not so boring anymore
  7. Brown wire with blue stripe on the left side of unit Cut it and tape it off Do not ground it
  8. EGR Valve is right above the alternator. The valve has an electrical connection to it and it also has a soft rubber hose that conects to the throttle body. If you need to see if the ticking is coming from the EGR valve have the car running and disconnect the electrical connection. It is normal when you here the ticking from the EGR valve. The EGR does this and does not need to be replaced
  9. You can buy it at autozone, or similar company Link to Seafoam
  10. I have this up on rennlist but thought some of you might not go there. Just did the cleaning through the vacuum line. I let it sit for 7-8 min and used about 1/2 the can. The car just sucked it right up. Not that much smoke, I guess it's because I rev the ***** out of her every day. There is 1 improvement that I saw. 1. Engine running just a little smother. Back fat jiggle and RPM's confirm this. I have used Techron and never saw this kind of improvement My idle oil pressure went down 1-2 ticks. From 1.8 to 1.6 Not really sure why that is??? I'll have to see if fuel mileage improves after I finish the full tank of gas I have. In the end I’m happy with the initial results :thumbup:
  11. About to use seafoam and don't know which vacuum line to use. Does anyone have pictures?? Thanks Aaron
  12. If you notice my squeak is also engine speed related. It is coming from the trans. I just haven't had time to take it in Mine only happens when cold. Goes away after driving for a few mins. I have done all the same test as you. Belt, let engine warm up without moving,clutch,gear change. Sorry I guess this doesn't help, but know that I feel your pain
  13. Does it go away when the car is warm.? If so if you let it set to warm up does it go away or do you have to drive it for it to go away Could it be the Trans?
