  1. WOW! Sounds like we'll be trying to find the short and repair it. I'll keep everyone posted. :thankyou:
  2. Loren, does Porsche sell the wiring harness from the sensor to the ECU or do you just have to find the problem and repair the wire and/or replace the connector?
  3. Same CEL? Which one P0342 or P1349? or both? P0342 is the camshaft sensor (on the side of the head) - it maybe time to inspect the wiring on that sensor and it's connector. Both.
  4. Update; I went in and my tech and I checked for a broken bracket and the bracket was fine. He told me that it was probably a faulty actuator. I went ahead and purchased a new one from Sunset Imports in Beaverton, Oregon, for 175.32; shipping included, Part number 996-105-303-71. No one else could come close to that price; everyone else was asking 230.00 and up. I went back in and we installed the new actuator and I didn't even make it out of the parking lot and got the same CEL. So we plugged in the cable and ran the camshaft actual values and it was getting an intermittent signal. When we manipulated the plug we got a full signal and then it would start to work (temporarily). So now we believe it is the plug or the wire to the plug. The only issue now is that Porsche does not sell the sub wire for this specific actuator that is plugged in to the main wiring harness. You either have to repair the one you have or find one off of another car (any suggestions would be appreciated). I am a little ticked off that I spent 175 bucks and another 180 on labor for nothing, but what am I going to do, I trust this guy. He is the only person that has worked on my car for the last 6 years, to include a variety of modifications (24/18 turbos, injectors, hoses, inter coolers, dv's, new turbo inlets, etc. etc.) The car is an absolute rocket (606 hp to the wheels) but I digress. The last thing that it might be if this doesn't do the trick are the O rings that the actuator is seated against. These O rings prevents the oil from seeping around the actuator. If oil slips through the O rings it throws a CEL because of the variance in pressure thereby causing the actuator to malfunction. If that is the problem, they have to pull the motor. :censored: Loren, if you or anyone else have any thoughts on this issue please respond, I trust this forum. :renntech: Thanks, Mario
  5. Thanks, I'm going to take her in next week. Strange it's the same exact problem as the last time. I hope it's the bracket.
  6. Loren, I got this CEL back in October; P0342 P fault code 112 Phase Sensor 1 Camshaft hall effect sensor 1 P1349 Camshaft Adjustment Bank 1 below limit I took it in and they replaced the left camshaft sensor, the problem stopped for a while (I don't drive the car that much so it took a few months). The problem came back, I cleared the codes to see if it would stop and it came back again this past Saturday. Any advice? Thanks.
  7. Buy a set of Forge from Vivid, I just bought a set along with Switzer hoses. Forge comes with a choice of springs to choose the psi setting of the DV, just use the one that comes installed when you receive them. They are yellow.
  8. What do you recommend? I am getting a new clutch and LWFW installed. So I thought since I've hit 12k miles and the engine will be out, I'm going to have them change the sparkplugs and gear lubricant. What is good for a '02 Gt2?
  9. Nope, it comes without the lock cylinder, so you just snap the old one in the slot. Although Sunset had it for 40 dollars less. I'll know who to buy from next time. Thanks Loren.
  10. I am replacing my glove box latch. When you order the new one, does it come without the locking mechanism? If so, does the old mechanism slide into the new latch?
  11. Does anyone know if the 997 Gt3 shifter will fit in a 996? Specifically a 996 Gt2. I owned a '05 Gt3 and loved the shift feel, I've been told that this one is improved, if that is so, I'm all in. Here is a photo of the new shifter.
  12. OK, I know this topic has been beaten to death, but I learned something today and I thought I would share my new found knowledge with my dear old forum members. Let's get the specifications out of the way, '02 Gt2, Stock K24's, Orton flash, DV's, and a Europipe II (quiet). To make a long story short, after the flash and DV's (pre-exhaust), my mechanic used the mark the nut method and turned each nut (clockwise) evenly. I believe at that time he turned them 4 full revolutions. Before the flash and DV's I saw the occasional .9 spike (stock) and the best dyno numbers were 444 rwhp, 426 rwt (stock). After the flash, DV's and my mechanic's wastegate adjustment (4 revolutions each) the best dyno numbers were 482 rwhp and 454 rwt and she was hitting 1 bar with a 1.1 spike. Both these runs were done in very similar conditions (temp 60's, humidity, same dyno and operator). Finally I installed my Europipe and felt that the wastegates could use further tweaking. I asked a member of one of the other forums to borrow his wastegate psi tool and when it arrived I went to TPC, put the car on the lift and we tried to set the wastegates to crack open at 12 psi. Well, I've got to tell you; it is very difficult to look at the psi gauge at the same instant that the wastegates crack open and then the gauge hitting the magic number. We thought that we had it set and put her on the dyno, she hit 1.2 bar and the best run was 507 rwhp and 496 rwt (90 degrees). Well, needless to say I was pretty happy until I got her on the street. She was over boosting in 4th and 5th (1.3, 1.4 bar) and I felt the fuel shutting down; bad feeling. I went back (twice) that night and we turned the nuts back 2 full turns and I took her back out. FYI, it was about 90 degrees outside that day. Well, she continued to over boost, I went back to TPC a couple of days later and unscrewed the nuts until they were both exactly 11 millimeters from the tip of the rear nut, to the tip of the rod. I used an electronic caliper, so they were dead balls even. I then marked the nut using touch up paint (guards red, of course) and began the painstaking process of turning the nuts several turns and driving her, checking the boost, coming back, waiting for her to cool, measuring again to be sure and then repeating the process again. After several adjustments, the top of the nut, to the tip of the rod was now 14 millimeters. I was just getting 1 bar at the top of 3rd and 4th. Well, I took her home and this morning, I started the process all over again. I finally after three test drives and 5 and a 1/2 more full turns I am seeing a solid 1.1 bar in 3rd and 4th with a 1.2 spike at 5500 rpm in 4th, and a solid 1.2 bar in 5th (140 mph and beyond). The temp outside today was in the high 60's with no humidity, so I hope it will not over boost in colder temperatures. Thanks for listening and I hope this helps someone in the future who is trying to adjust their wategates. I attached a copy of the three dyno runs overlapping each other for further information. Take care and drive safe. Dyno_Comparison.pdf
  13. I adjusted my wastegates the other day. My car has a flash and a Europipe. I tried to set them using 12.5 psi and the wastegates should crack open. This should give you 1.1 with 1.2 spike. Unfortunately, I was getting 1.3 and 1.4 in fourth and fifth gear. I dialed them back and now I'm getting 1.1 and 1.2 in all gears. Although, I did experience some hesitation in fourth and fifth (It would not go past 1 bar) and then it mysteriously stopped. I then felt that you should be able to measure the rod tip to the nut to make sure that they are both equally adjusted, but the passenger side rod is slightly different than the driver side (Header is much closer to wastegate on the passenger side). So if I use a digital measuring tool and measure the exact same length for the rod are the wastegates equally adjusted?
  14. How do you remove seatbacks on the sport seat? I am interested in getting them painted. Are there any issues with fit when you try to put them back on? I've been warned that they are never the same when put them back on.
