  1. According to my 2015 Porsche Owner's Manual, "The difference between the minimum and maximum marks (those two white lines in your pic) on the segment display is approx. 1.8 quarts (1.7 liters)". If we assume the gauge is linear, then 0.45 quarts per segment. So adding a quart should give you an extra two segments as you mentioned.
  2. Why do I need to see that Green Banner with The RennTech.org community is Member supported! Please consider an ANNUAL donation to help keep this site operating. When I already made a DONATION?
  3. This is exactly what my friend with a 2005 911 Carrera S 997 was experiencing. It would start easier when "cold" but had trouble starting after the engine had been warmed up; almost as if the battery was nearly dead. So he went out and bought the much talked about cable that members on Rennlist advised. Lots of talk, but very little testing. Yes, I realize when a cable at the crimped end turns "bluish", it is a sign of high resistance and heat, but that was not the case in my friend's 997. But he bought the cable, so I installed it. Easy, but what a job! So after instal
  4. I am doing the same. My manometer will be here by the weekend. All I need to do is make the connection to the oil filler cap. I was over at my friend's place yesterday and ran my code reader on it again after some codes popped up again. It looks like he has two less codes on the Readiness cycle since last week. All that is left stating "Not Ready" is the Evaporative System and Secondary Air Injection. I don't know his 997 or my own 991.1 GTS like I know my 993 (like the back of my hand). I had a quick look in his engine compartment and this is what I noticed. Nice that
  5. Good info JFP and Silver_TT! I bought some of the components to make a smoke machine but haven't been able to get to the hardware store to get the rest of the items. As for a manometer, I have one on order. I can use it for other purposes as well.
  6. I've been on Renntech now and then for about a decade. Spot on and exactly what I was thinking. It is hard to get a hold of my friend and his 997. He isn't very technically inclined, so this will be left to me. I might look at his AOS as well since it is original. His 997 has about 110,000 miles on it.
  7. I am helping my friend out with his 2005 Carrera S Cab - 6 speed. He just put it back on the road after winter storage. The battery was disconnected. I advised him to take it for a long drive. Initially, the idle was "hunting" and sometimes early on it would stall but that is no longer the case. It now runs smoothly. He does have a Durametric Pro and so do I, but since he has a Cab and it was sunny out (it was tough seeing the laptop screen), I used my LAUNCH. Codes that came up: P2177 - Oxygen Sensing Adaptation (FRAU) Bank 1 Lower Load Range P2179 - Oxygen Sensing Adap
