  1. Phillip: Could you PM me also with the Sachs 2.5 info. Thanks
  2. I had a similar issue and it was the front sway bar. It just needed to be retorqued. Very simple and quick.
  3. go to 6speedonline.com, forums for 996 turbo and you'll learn everything you need to know from experienced experts who've done what your thinking of.
  4. I seem to have the same problem and am anxious to hear if you identified the cause and solution. Have you made any progress since the last post?
  5. You asked about 40 hours to remove and reinstall the engine. I just went though this at my Porsche dealer and he charged me 10 hours remove and 10 hours reinstall.
  6. You asked about 40 hours to pull and reinstall engine. That is excessive. I just went through this at my Porsche dealer and it took them 10 hours out and 10 hours in.
  7. Thanks for you help. That's just what I was looking for.
  8. Can some one give me the link to instruction procedure on removing the front spoiler-bumper. Thanks
  9. There is a Do it Yourself instruction posted in the DIY section for 996 Turbos. It is very informative and detailed with pictures to locate everything. Changing the turbo oil is simple and don't forget to get the necessary crush washers for the turbos, engine drain and oil tank drain. Whole job took less than an hour.
  10. Thanks everyone for your timely, informative and thorough responses. It may have been a spike since I was WOT in second and I haven't seen numbers higher than .8 before. I hadn't thought of a leak and I'll do more testing in the next day or so and let you know how I make out. By the way, I bought the car with only slight usage and it served as a garage queen and tourer. The previous owner was not likely to have made modifcations, but the world is full of surprises. I still have some factory warranty left and cpoe so I should be ok if my test runs show high boost numbers.
  11. I have a 2004 bone stock non-x50 TT. What is the factory spec bar under full acceleration load? I'm getting 1.2 bar. Thanks
