  1. Thanks Loren. I decided to buy new relays since it's only $40. It's gonna be at least $200 for dealer to plug my car into their computers.
  2. Hi Loren, Mine is inconsistent. It come on as soon as I start driving. Even at low speed the wing would go up when I get that message. Or it works fine for a few days of driving. Is it still the relays? If it is, then do you have part numbers. I have the bose sub back there, don't want to open it multiple times. Might as well replace both at the same time. I'm hoping that it is not some other control module or something. Thanks. Both relays are part number 996-615-102-00 Relay -- US MSRP $19.64 (each) Wow. That was so fast. I assume the relays are the only possible pr

  4. The viscous coupling is just as it sounds. It uses fluid to transfer power to the front. Kind of like a torque converter. The only difference is that the fluid would thicken as temperature increases when there is slipping between the two turbines. In cold weather, this almost doesn't thicken. 5% of the torque is only about 15 ft lbs at peak. Even at the full 40%, your talking 100 ft lbs. What kind of tires are you using? That plays a much bigger part than any electronic nanny or awesome drive train you have. If you don't have snow tires on, your not going anywhere. Subaru AWD uses
  5. Anyone tried this before? http://www.wilhelmy-it.com/ click on North America, On-line shop, Porsche, 996, Coupe, and finally RemoteKey. The page doesn't allow direct access. It opens and closes windows with the original remote, lock in feature, and a few other convenience options. German company but ship from U.S.
  6. Awesome. Thanks a bunch. I am a little confused. Does that mean that the DRL is there just no power to it? Wouldn't it be better if we just add a 12V source at the top leg of the fuse block and then put a fuse in the slot? Is the A9 the one for DRL?
  7. I want to do a mod to the head light. I like to have Daytime Running Light. :D So I am just looking for a hot wire that turns is hot when ignition is turned on. I will then use a relay to drive the lights.
  8. Using unoiled K&N will let through a lot of small particals that the oil was supposed to attract and hold. I don't think it's worth the risk.
  9. K&N kit doubled the distance between the TB and the MAF. the tube now acts like a "tuned pipe" as the cross section area go from small to large to small. Kind of like a resonator in the exhaust to increase power at certain RPM. That mean at certain "frequency" of air flow would increase the flow by having a "resonance". But on the other hand, when the TB is closed, this "resonance" could also send the air back to the MAF and trigger a "no flow" reading thus causing the MAF to lean out the air fuel ratio. Check and see if the stall is happening at the same RPM range with the TB closed.
  10. ANYTIME, ANYONE doesn't know enough to disconnect the coupling shaft for a "pull" Methinks you would be better off NOT doing business there. We "repaired" a few TT's that have had this issue. MAN, it's terrible to see some of the shafts that come out of those poor machines. AND, the viscous coupling gets damaged at the same time. I do have my doubt of substantive HP/TORQUE improvement through exhaust change. It's mostly a sound change that people equate to improvement in performance. M Are you saying that it should be disconected or not? Why would it incur any damage if it's disco
  11. Does any one know if these part number are for hollow spokes? 996.362.136.01 996.362.142.10 Thanks.
  12. my M5 came with it when I bought it. I took it off and tried to give it away. No one wants it. I could drive with it as the TC stays on when ever I accelerate. I have Mich PS2 now. Love them. If you have the money, that's the only way to go. I could do doghnuts with the Conti on my C4S but can't on the PS2. That's traction.
  13. have a 996 C4S. Want to put Mich PS Cups on it. Found some cheap 285s for the rear. Any thoughts. How would it make the car handle?
  14. Loren, can you tell me if these part numbers are hollow turbo wheels? 996.362.136.01 & 996.362.142.01 Thanks.
  15. If Porsche makes their engine that produces 60hp per liter or even the ultimate C6 Z06 @ 85 hp per liter, I'm sure it would last forever without a hitch. But the regular 3.6 is doing 90.25 without the X51 kit and that's almost 96hp/liter. This is with plenty of low and mid-range torque that Japanese can't match. Have you seen the list of recalls on American cars? Give me one American engine that's sophisticated. They can't afford to make sophisticated engines. Spend some time here to see how great your 200k miles American cars fare. http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/home.cfm You're worry
