  1. Swapping from K16 to K24 is a direct bolt-on, so you don't need to change anything ! Headers are exactly the same and intercoolers and exhaust will be fine at least for 1.0-1.1 bar boost.
  2. I would like to replace the 2 side air vent wih new carbon fiber parts but, after Having removed the 2 torx screw i can't make slide out the original part. Looks like there's another screw inside, on the right of the light switch. Inputs ? Thank you
  3. That code reader will not suffice...get a Porsche reader (see my list)...otherwise we are just guessing. Ok, good to know it ... thank you !
  4. What code reader are you using...if you got lights on the dash the codes should be stored in the DME. Use PIWIS, PST2 or Durametric. It could be fuel related...when was your last plugs/coil pack change? I don't know if can be compared to a Durametric but i use my R-9000 multigauge or the Nitrod. My last plugs change was just 13000 miles ago but never made a coil pack change (and the car has 70000 miles on it).
  5. I know, but no fault codes ! :huh:
  6. Well. i have checked for loose or damaged hoses and they look ok but i have noticed another strange thing. Now, without any reasons idle looks to be ok but, if the engine stays running at idle for more then 3-4 minutes i have PSM and ABS check light. I have to switch off the car and then start again to have them reset ... and this happens everytime the engine runs at idle for 3-4 minutes. When i start the engine, after this has happened, idle has some problems in normalising and in few seconds it becomes normal !! What could it be ? <_<
  7. Hello, my car is a 2001 996 TT and it has been fine since 1 week ago when i have noticed the strange behavior of the engine at idle. Usually it stays around 780-800 RPM but now it has raised to 1100 RPM (it's so high that it doesn't allow me to check the oil level with the computer) ... but i must say that the car runs perfectly to the red line. I add some informations that may help to solve this problem ... the car has remained in the box for 2-3 months with the same fuel and, for this reason, i was thinking that maybe the fuel could have lost some octanes, so i have put new gasoline but
  8. I agree 100% with you but i have found myself in a very urgent situation without the possibility to get the right tool and the need to have my car ready for a track challenge ... but, even if i don't like to use the hammer (never) i make you sure that has been a very "smooth" shot and with a rubber hammer ! :rolleyes:
  9. Curious to find out if this worked for you.. JP Hi JP, i have found a very easy solution with a guy of a Porsche dealer ! I have asked him to give me for just a day the special tool to do that job, but he told me that he couldn't do this ... but he had a great solution that needed just a hammer ... he also told me that this is a solution that they don't like to use but just because they have the right tool. Well, in few words ... one strong shot with a hammer on the rear side of the ball joint ... and it works !!! :D So now i have the lower control arms with 11 mm each side an
  10. If you're not in a terribly big hurry I don't mind picking one up at HF and mail it to you. PM Me if that's what you want to do. Joost No, i'm not in a great hurry, don't need the car to be ready tomorrow. So, i'm gonna check 2 shops in my city but if i will not find the right tool you would give me a great help. I will PM you ... meantime let me tell you thank you ... you are really very kind ! :thankyou:
  11. Thank you guys for your support ! Yes, it looks very easy with the right tool ... now i just have to see where to buy one ! I would like to buy one of them from Harbor freight but unfortunately i live in italy and i already know that i will have to become crazy to find the right one! I will try in some Castorama or some well equipped shop !
  12. Hi, i'm trying to change the oem front control arms of my car with the adjustable front GT3 control arms but i can't separate the carrier from the lower control arm ball joint ! I don't know how to do it ... i don't want to use the hammer but i'm seriously thinking of it !!! Please help me ... any suggestions appreciated ... special tools to be used ... anything !!! Thank you
  13. Well, just checked the sender, i found a disconnectedd wire !!! Not easy to put the wire in its place, but at the end i did it ... the gauge is ok !!! For today i'm a lucky guy ... thank you Loren one more time !
  14. Hi, just came back home after a short run, i notice that the oil pressure gauge is indicating 0 (zero)!!! :( The indicator never changes its position ... it seems completely disconnected ! My car is a TT m.y. 2001 ... after 10 seconds thinking ... oh my god ... what's going on, i finally realized that the engine was running perfect as usual !!! So i'm pretty sure that the problem can be located in the sensor that read the engine oil pressure or in the instrument !!! My question is if anybody had before a similar problem and if it's possible to know where the sensor is located or anywa
