  1. Thanks in advance! Becker CDR220 Type: 4462 Serial: 25016337
  2. Little help understanding this information please, thanks.
  3. so i can not seem to find a picture for you guys but i have seen many 02+ 996 gt3's with a blueish tinted glass headlight. they do not appear to be film covers and i have only seen this on gt3's. is it possible to order these headlights and put them on my 02 996 c2? found a pic here but it is a 997
  4. 25-26 lbs front (18.7.5), 30 lbs rear (18x10). It's not especially precise, I just weighed myself, then weighed myself again holding each of the wheels (which do NOT currently have tires mounted on them). I don't happen to have a pic of my own wheels handy but I've attached a pic I pulled off of eBay of the exact same wheels. With tires, these feel MUCH heavier than my original 17" twists. are those weights given for wheels tires together
  5. anyknow know of a quality powder coater in northern california (sf bay area) with experience powder coating porsche calipers?
  6. i have done some research on the subject and have the same feelings about the quaife POS. guard transmission does makes two options for the C2 but both are pricey.
  7. great question and im very curious as well :thumbup: Loren is pretty much the man here when it comes to the technical and hope to see a response from him.
  8. wwest, ive heard of doing to two head gaskets but hear more about changing out pistons. look at response for 1999Porsche991 below. There is obviously something wrong with your SC setup or with the dyno/operator. You should be conservatively getting 350+ rwhp. Currently, my high boost 99 C2 is delivering in excess of 450 rwhp with stock compression. Check your boost behind the throttlebody, plugs and timing. A vacuum gauge may show a large vacuum leak. Many of these units were installed by people who did not know what there were doing. It's relatively simple to produce 400 rwhp once your current system is running as designed. 1999Porsche911, the SC is installed correctly. what is wrong is the ECU is not mapped correctly. i should have the data soon to support that. my dyno guy explained where in the low-end there was not enough gas then also in the high-end it would drop off too. he mentioned that fuel pump maybe be bad or not pushing enough fuel but further testing he came to the conclusion that the ECU is not mapped correctly and not sending enough fuel out. who did your SC install 1999? Who did your install? The ECU update is a standard part of the system, so your computer has either been updated or not. Lack of fuel would not allow you to even get close to redline so a proper dyno run would not be possible. Basic readings should be known, such as fuel trim, MAF signal, timing and level of boost; at idle and near redline. Further tuning is not possible without these readings. I had install done with a race shop in San Carlos, CA. They had sent the ECU out to TPC in MD, and re-installed here. The dyno was never pushed to redline as I was afraid of blowing the motor. Dyno was setup not to reach further than 6500 RPM. It was more diagnostic then anything. I will obtain the results later today or tomorrow and forward them on to you guys here as well as TPC. Im pretty sure that the ECU is not flashed correctly.

  10. hello to all, finally had my car on the dyno and the mechanic was very informative. my supercharged 996 3.6 is pumping out a little less than 300 to the rear wheels in hp and torque. not too happy about that as i was hoping to have upwards of 400. understanding more and more of producing power, how would one go about lowering the compression to the motor? where can i buy better 996 pistons? anyone know of a shop in CA to do a complete engine rebuild? best, tecra
  11. hey wwest and 1999Porsche! you guys have much knowledge concerning the superchargers and appreciate your comments on my threads. as per PJA's question (keep in mind i have a 02 996 supercharged and running wonderfully!), i have yet to dyno her but will come march after i visit thunderhill. i would guesstimate 100 hp increase along with 80 lbs of torque. i can confidently tell you i eat stock 911 for breakfast and for dinner i enjoy stock turbos B) tecra
  12. dude chill, no programming the key yourself, get the proper key from a dealer. the PIWIS/PST2 machines are very expensive and built for mechanics and dealers. did you buy this car without starting it ever or did it turn over at some point when you were present? i would explore these routes if this were my car: 1) get the original key 2) buy the duramtric tool 3) clutch pedal sensor (for when you press the clutch in for starting the car, assuming you are already) 4) spark plugs
