  1. OP- I see you are in Switzerland, yes? The advice I always give people is this: WHO will be doing your work? your maintenance/upgrades? Your TROUBLESHOOTING? You will want to choose a tune that THEY are comfortable with... Or chose a tune where the tune company is willing to talk with your shop and answer their questions. I used UMW.... but Marek, todd would all be fine I suspect. I am actually not too familiar with EU-based offerings... A PS The GT2 exhaust is slightly different- so some of that power may be due to sightly reduced backpressure. DO consider a new exhaust, powe
  2. I need a local shop to tweak my alignment and do a corner balance. Just finished an install of a Moton 2Way clubsport (remote canisters) but am not set up (nor do I have the skills) to do the setup. Who should I use, ideally locally (Sacramento area) I was thinking Ron at IBP motorsport.... Anyone else? Thanks! Adam
  3. At the risk of bumping an old thread, the new PCM 2 or 2.1 has FOUR frigging clips, the upper two are not visible, being hidden by plastic. Without the correct tools you need 5 or 6 hands- 4 for the 4 clips, then one or two to wiggle the POS out. Study the sides, and you will see the bottom clip... study above it and you'll see what looks like the same constrution that disappears under the black plastic- yes, there are clips under there. A
  4. They mean, in terms of "official Porsche recommendation", that you should use any porsche approved oil that meets those numbers What oil do I use has GOT to be the most common topic...rennlist, 6speed, etc. 15 is too high for my tastes... I use M1 5W50
  5. I got an email from Owen @ durametric who said V6 with the enthusiast should work.... probably be a few weeks before I stop traveling and can get to it. :( A
  6. No help with this request, but saying Hi from Latrobe....not far from Somerset! Maybe PM Loren and see if he has a recommendation, he is in Roseville, as I recall A
  7. Comment/Question: When people refer to a "50/50" mixture, this should be one half distilled water, one half antifreeze, correct? Or say one gallon water mixed with one gallon antifreeze to yield two gallons of fill. Yes? I noted some prior math that seemed to diverge from this.... Thx Adam
  8. Slide on under and look at the O2 sensors... easy to remvoe and replace. Really no DIY needed. But might I comment that crappy cats on cheap aftermarket exhausts are causing your issue. Just saying. High quality 100cell cats that perform cost $2000 a pair, whole exhausts using these are priced accordingly! One comment- if you unscrew the O2 without unpluging the wires will twist up- LEAVE THEM TWISTED when you reinstall them into the extended bung, so that when screwed down the wires will untwist and ultimately be nice and straight like when you started. GL A
  9. Yeah, my read is that you need the Durametric Professional Product to have a hope of V6 working...(I am rather annoyed that they claimed the 'enthusiast version' is the same as the Pro, except for the # of car limit...then changed their story after they realized V6 would not work in the enthusiast format) I'm using a motive, just was hoping to fill the whole system with the same fluid. See what durametric says, maybe pick up the pro version and lease it out to anyone that wants it! Regards Adam
  10. Any update on this? I am swtiching to Motul RBF600 and would rather have all new fluid (as much as possible) going forward. I do recognize that for 'run of the mill' flushes it isn't needed. Curious if it can be done on the durametric A
  11. what the hell is 'setting your status'?!?!?

  12. ^^ Second that. 'Auto Flambe' is a real outcome of a Pentosin leak. This is a known issue, with a documented fix. Get it done. A
  13. Why are you taking it to the dealer?!?!? THe term "low mileage annual oil change/check up" is a smoke screen designed to suck $489 out of your pocket for an oil change and a bunch of BS 'check this and check that'... where they actually don't check a thing. I agree with annual oil and brake flush every two. But find someone else to do the work. GL A
  14. I really think you want to look at the coil packs... you can get cracks in the potting that causes funny issues at higher rpms. I don't think this will necessarily show any codes. If you are reverting to the Bosch, this should cost you no more than $0 for labor. A
  15. ANyone ever get a newer DVD based nav to work in a 2003 or 2004 MOST bus 996TT??? People say it should work, but I've not been able to confirm it... THx Adam
