I just purchased my kit from Durametric and checked out my 2007 987S. Under the Motronic vehicle data it shows that the number of ignitions are as follows: Number of ignitions range 1= 1/198h Number of ignitions range 2= 1/198h Number of ignitions range 3= 1/198h Number of ignitions range 4= 1/198h Number of ignitions range 5= 1/198h Number of ignitions range 6= 0/0h Operating hour counter = 287 1) Does this mean that my car was driven at high RPM ranges at 198 hrs? I purchased this car new and have never gone over ~ 6200 rpm. I did have the car in a body shop for a few weeks during Jan 2008 because I was rear ended. 2) Does the 1/198h mean that someone drove my car at excessive rpm one time or one ignition spark? Is that possible? 3) If so, is there a way to approximate that date? or am I worrying about nothing? or is my warranty toast? Thanks
I have a 2007 987S. After installing my fire extinguisher mount I need to reinstall the seat bolts. For a 2004, I found a spec that said torque is 48 ft lbs (Bentley Publications) Does anyone know if that torque would be the same for a 2007 and/or do I need to replace the bolts with new ones? Thanks
Hi, I am starting to search for a 1989 911 and was wondering if the 911's whale tail is removable? I read a posting that said that the owner had the whale tail in his garage. If I purchase a vehicle with a whale tail, can I remove it? If so, are the parts available to use the car w/o the tail? Thanks
BacK when I had a 350Z, it was very clear that one should only use GL4, not GL5. I haven't looked at the manual yet but wondered if this was true for Porsche? Warning!! Do not use GL5 transmission fluid. It will damage the synchros in the Nissan transmission. You need GL4 fluid. Most fluid you buy at autoparts stores is GL5.
In our local PCA publication "Tobacco Roads" they listed 911 as 12493, Boxster S as 1285 in the USA. (from Porsche.com.usa ) Noth American sales for 2007 Cayenne : 13,370 911 ( all variants ) : 13,153 Boxter : 10,153 Cayman : 6,249
Sorry to hear about this. I was just hit from the rear while stopped at a red light, 6 months old 987 so I know how you feel. Good Luck! I found a fantastic body shop but it's located in NC. Just so you know, you can go to any body shop you choose. Also, some Porsche dealers do have their own body shop. Durham NC.
Kelseydog posted a topic in 987-1 Boxster Convertible Top Issues and SolutionsAnyone have any thoughts or experience with these products [MSD Dashhawk] (http://www.dashhawk.com) Thanks
Kelseydog replied to hunteje's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I installed an Odyssey (no acid in this battery) and it's great. Also used the aluminum mount form Rennline. Fits perfectly.
I have had an X50 Blue LED radar detector for a few years now and it has always worked well. Since getting a 987S 2007, I decided to try a new mounting location. I purchased a cell phone mount with a large suction cup and placed it onto the back windscreen insert (plastic) located between my seats such that the detectors rear is almost touching the insert. I also programed the detector such that it is completely dark so no one can see the blue LEDs in the rear. I don't need to see the detector because each mode emits a different sound. So my question is do you think that I will lose sensitivity of radar detection from the front of the vehicle since it's not mounted directly on the front windshield? I did take a test drive and it seemed to pick up the grocery stores door openers fairly well. Thanks Will post pictures later.
Battery terminals in a Boxster 2007 - SAE or metric? Thanks
My bad experience was in a different vehicle when battery acid sprayed all over the engine coimpartment. Being I already have a 34R I've been thinking about this? I may just leave the original one in for now. Thanks on an I put an Optima 34R in my 2001 Boxster when I needed a new battery and it works great. When it's time to replace the battery on our 997, after it's out of warranty, I'll probably go for an Optima as well. Why would you want to replace a battery on a car still under warranty? If you have a "bad experience" with your Porsche battery when it's still under warranty, like it dies, why wouldn't you let the dealer pay for a new one?
