  1. very very interested in PST2 unit, email me louho-at-hotmail-dot-com

  2. Nice write up. How was your original bearing? I did a car with 68k mi and bearing was tight and no issues.
  3. If you account for labor of doing the LN 3 times, then the Isario is cheaper. Unless that is, you work for free :P The Isario is expensive, but comes with a warranty. And the LN aint cheap neither. IMO they're both overpriced. Com'on it's a bearing. FWIW, I have no affiliation with either kit.
  4. I would like to transfer PSM functionality from a 02 986S into 00 986S. What all do I need to do swap? Brakes? DME? ABS pump? Does the PSM unit near the center console need to be coded for the DME or is the DME specifically tied to PSM unit? TIA
  5. The 04 986S is rated at 264 hp if I'm not mistaken. How did you get up to 292 hp? Did the 987 style intake help?
  6. The 996tt does not use the m96, rather it uses a Gt1 derived motor which is also in the Gt2 and Gt3 and 997tt. IMHO one pays now or one pays later. If money is a concern, and that is the case here, the only fiscally responsible choice is 996tt. You'll never get anywhere close to your "investment" dollars back from a replaced motor. 996tt is a proven winner.
  7. I was wondering what would happen if at high speed the engine failed for whatever reason (like a cracked sleeve, thrown rod, IMS failure, etc...) which locked up the rear end for a second or two and caused some instability/sliding.... would the PSM and ABS still function to help the driver bring the car under control until it gets stopped?
  8. I just realized the ignitions are probably cumulative. That would make sense then, for my case anyways...
  9. I did the math on this and I got some strange results. Is this because the rev ranges for my 986S are not the same as those listed, or are there multiple ignitions (like an MSD box) during a single power stroke? Can someone verify please... Foremost assumption: Given a Porsche motor that is 4 stroke and 6 cylinders, I get 3 ignitions per rev. Now I am religious about shifting BEFORE 7200 rpm (usually 6800 rpm), yet my DME tells me that I recently had 5672 ignitions in Range 1! Crunching the numbers equates to roughly 15 sec. of over revving!!! That's impossible from my experience.
  10. How can we prevent this IMS failure? How about tapping the suspect bolt and installing a larger one with some loctite? Or maybe have a toolmaker fab up some higher grade bolts like ARP? I would love to have some peace of mind, so please chime in and tell me what's actually breaking? What's the diagnosis?
  11. The key is preventing detonation. I read some where (Corky's Maximum Boost?) most any commercially viable automobile engine was designed with a minimum of 2X safe power rating. That is, rods, crank, case. et. al are all capable of enduring a 100% power increase, in theory. Detonation (from shoddy gas) in a NA motor will produce pressures well beyond those encountered in a +100% HP optimally tuned turbo motor, therefore motors are designed with these safety margins. Problem is, the boxster motors, and all M96 derivatives, may not be all that viable in the first place. Cracked liners, sli
  12. Here's a kit $6-8k depending on your set up, http://turbowerx.com/ A spacer works on many other cars, I don't see a reason why it wouldn't work for the Boxster. Considering the motor will have to be cracked anyway, the extra expense of forged pistons may be worth it. The pluses would be, timing won't be affected and they'll be a lot more tolerant of detonation and tuning mistakes. For $700, it's cheap insurance and you get the exact CR to boot.
  13. Care to tell who so I can throw him some business? Thanks.
  14. Some people have all the fun! I'm already scraping some driveways and bump stops as it is 02 S, so I'm outta luck :(
  15. -- Check control wire for A/C relay, pin 2 (terminal 85), for short circuit to ground. 1. Remove A/C relay. 2. Remove DME control module connector. 3. Connect ohmmeter to ground and pin 2 (terminal 85). Display: infinite ohms If 0 - 5 ohms is displayed, check wiring for chafing and pinching damage. I'm having difficulty with step 2, locating " DME control module connector" . It a rat's nest of wires, anyone know which connector block it's in? Or do I just trace back from terminal 85 and look for chaffing? Thanks.
