cdsvenom replied to Dozer1's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I just started getting the bad smoke on startup also. Mine is an 02 996 with 48k miles. What should I do???? Thanks.
cdsvenom replied to Izzy's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)What type of pneumatic impact wrench? I have run into similar confusing scenarios with lugs on 1 ton truck wheels. I had to pony up for the high dollar pneumatic (like $300 or so) to get anything to work. Even though the expensive 1 claimed to have the same lbft capacity as the cheap 1, it broke the lugs loose 1st try. I think the way the manufacturers rate their max torque is kinda arbitrary (not unlike how a Wal Mart car amplifier will claim to have 1000 watts, yet produce far less power than a 150 watt high end amp). Just my 2 cents....
cdsvenom replied to RandalJ's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Sweet car. I just got an 02 Targa and am real happy with it. It's got a lot of options I guess with the best being the surprisingly good Bose system. I paid 39,500 without doing much research. Is this comparable to what you guys paid? My buddy is convinced I overpaid. Thanks and congrats on the nice car.
cdsvenom replied to cdsvenom's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks for the reply. I actually was referring to the whole intake. I think they call it the Procharger Kit. I got it from Vivid Racing for like $260.
I just bought an 02 Targa and also got a K & N Intake for it. I did a search and noticed that some members have had problems with the intake causing CEL's and driveablity issues. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated. I have yet to install it and will not if the responses are negative. Specifically... Does it make a noticeable performance gain? Did it cause you to trip CEL codes, and if so after how many miles? Did it negatively effect driveability? Thanks so much in advance.
