Ken7258 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)This has been happening for years. I have a 01 996 C2 Tip. It use to just happen on the track with less then 1/2 tank of gas. Car would stall for 1-2 seconds then start running again. It's just like the ignition was turned off and back on. I now always track the car with at least 1/2 tank of gas. I replaced the fuel filter last month and everything has been fine. I was at the track last weekend, no stalling, then on the way home with over 1/2 tank of gas, I was stalling every 30 seconds for 2-3 seconds then the car would start running again. It's just like the ignition was turned off, wait 2-3 seconds and then turn it back on. I filled up the tank and no problems. Could there be any problems with fuel pump lines. I know there are all type of lines coming and going from the fuel pump and maybe some have broken free and with less then a full tank of gas they are getting some type of vapor lock. Thanks for your help.
I'm installing both for my 2001 C2. I'm handy with tools and am going to do this myself this Saturday. For some reason there were no instructions for the headers. Should I install the muffler first, headers first or both at the same time. This is my first Porsche and have no idea what it looks like under the car. The muffler instructions are very clear and it shouldn't take much more then a hour for both sides. Do I need new gaskets for the headers. According to Fabspeeds literature, the headers are a simple installation - no gasket needed. Thanks for your help. Ken
