I went with the Cleansweep, and added amps. All works fine, and no hiss or whine from the engine.
Mates, I have a 2000 Boxster S, with an aftermarket breather. At 30K plus miles, we had some maintenance done. The check engine light was coming on, they replaced an O2 sensor, and some plug wires that were leaking oil. Two weeks later, check engine light is back on, and showing a slow data problem in the other O2 sensor. Is anyone familiar with this problem? Before you ask, i had the service done at a reputable Porsche mechanic, not a dealer shop. Thanks in advance.
Listmates, I am enamored with the TA and other sideskirts. Can someone tell me where they mount? Do they just tape on over the bodywork? Sorry for the unreasonably dumb question!
Install was not difficult, but you have to be prepared to drill holes in your car. Just a couple. Do the main assembly indoors, it is much easier. Price- i paid 100$ on ebay, but they are typically about $250 if memory serves. I haven't had mine long enough to clean it, but on past vehicles, Diesel pickups and such, it was about 20K miles. Not much to the cleaning, either.
Nope, i got the sock. It does look way exposed there, glad to know you are running it with no trouble!
Great advice to assemble in the house! I took my time for once, and did the main assembly well before taking anything out of the car. First drive- power is much smoother in the low end. Used to feel like the car came alive at about 4000 rpm, now is "hot" all the way from take off to high end shift! Don't know if there is more power as the KN folks say there should be, but the sound is more aggressive, and the delivery is better. Will see about those CELs...
sfarris replied to sfarris's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks Loren. I was just thinking that on my Boxster, the fan would kick on after the car was turned off. :renntech:
sfarris posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Mates, My 996 (2003) runs fine. Temp guage shows 180 or so. But when I turn it off, i smell something hot by the tires, and the fan never kicks on. Is this normal? ( i know, smells hot is nondescript.) Thanks.
sfarris posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Listmates, I have installed some carbon fiber parts on my 996 cab. How do i keep them from turning yellow- other than keeping the car in the garage, i mean.
sfarris replied to bronxballer's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)i went from a Boxster S to a 996 Cab. The Box was easier and more fun to drive. the 996 is more comfortable, powerful, and newer, so more luxurious. I have yet to become driver enough to get the kind of performance in the curvies out of the 996 that I got out of the 986, but someday... the 996 does get more looks. But as my son said when i told him that people said the Box was a girlie car- "At least it is a Porsche." Poor mans or not, it is a different class of vehicle.
I ordered one of these today for my 03 C2. In the installation instructions, it says not to drive in harsh or inclement weather unless you return to the stock airbox... WTF?!?!?! Anyone had any problems in the rain with a K&N on a 996? I typically drive an SUV when i know the bad weather is coming, but would hate to think that the car wash or a sudden downpour will leave me stranded!
sfarris replied to midlifez's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Same beautiful car on two boards in the same day! Congrats on here as well.
sfarris replied to slowmo's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I agree on the K40. I found one on a used 996 that I bought. If it weren't for the cost to remove it, it would be gone. I currently have the Escort with Z shifters. I put all three laser heads up front, as no one ever gets hit in the rear with Laser! If someone is shooting rear plates, unless you are the only car on the road, you should pick it up from your detector. I will let you know if i am wrong, after i pay my ticket. I had an installed Bel RX75 on my Boxster, and two heads on laser up front was enough to save my bacon several times. Laser Veil also gets good reviews, but I wouldn't want it on my headlights- license plate only for me.
