Thanks to both for you advice. It sounds like my dealership is looking for a quick easy buck.
My battery died on my 2005 C2S during a storage period and after I replaced the battery the home link system and the heated seats do not work. Any ideas welcome, I was told I need to have a simple system reset via the OBDII but the dealership wanted $99 just to analyze the problem.
Great set of instructions, question did you leave the rest of the exhaust system stock? What gains did you notice and any impact to the sound levels?
papaskog replied to Sundance's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I assume your car is under warranty. Why not let the dealer take care of it? My car a 2006 Carrera does same thing. I complained to dealer and service manager said this is normal. What percentage of cars does this happen to be considered normal. Should I take car to another dealer? My 1996,1999 and 2002 911 did not do this. How difficult is this to fix? Most importantly, which would be the best dealer in tristate area to take car to. This happens on my 2005 C2S as well, go into 2nd and back to 1st always takes care of it or just pull away in 2nd. Best dealer in the tristate is in Huntington NY, two fo the techs there are nationally recoginized as the best Porsche Mechanics in the US.
Looks good not sure if I can get away with lip as I drag mine now when going in and out of certain driveways. How did the engine mods work out?
I am interested becuase I am debating what cosmetic and performancne related modifications I should do to my 997 S. So natuarally I will be watching this space to see the outcome. Thanks
Just curious, are you doing end to end Tubi are just the exhaust leaving stock headers and cats? Looking forward to hear how you feel after the work is complete. Did you do any before shots and sound clips? Good luck.
In reading Excellence Magazine #155 May 2007 Champion Motorsport 997 F77 article, I am very intriuged by the engin mods specifically. The Exhaust manifold, mufflers and airbox sounds like a inexpensive but worthwhile investment in both sound and performance. Has anyone had any experience with any of these modifications?
papaskog replied to ahklein's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Jean, What did you use to plug the bypass hose? How did you make sure that what ever it was did not get sucked into the intake?
papaskog replied to 9971830's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)You had no comments for Fabspeed, do you have an opinion on their product or have you not any experience with them? Just curios becuase from there website they sound fantastic.
No comment from you on Fabspeed, do you have an opinion or no experience with their product?
papaskog replied to 9971830's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)A couple of things that come to mind here. On the NA cars I've had one too many instances of CELs with after-market cats. They eventually trigger CELs, or at least the ones with 100, 200 cell cats do. The only set that hasn't and that I still use are the AWE cats. We've seen/installed/tried every exhaust system you can do and to date here are my favorites 1)Exhaust- Tubi- the sound is fantastic. The materials are very light in weight. There's no resonance. The built quality is top-notch but it's very expensive at 2350 for the mufflers. Installation is a breeze because the fitment is perfect. The Europipe is also a fantastic exhaust (again very expensive) and hand-made with some of the prettiest welds you'll ever see. The sound is also something that needs to appreciated in person (However it's not light). I like the AWE for its price/value. It's fairly quiet (even when you're on it) so it's very liveable for a daily driver. For the 1195 range it's the best one out there. I've always liked the Tech Art stuff but have much more experience with their parts on the 996TT/997TT side. I've only done a couple of tech art mufflers on NA cars and the sound was deeper than the other two mentioned above but still nice and sporty (not boaty). Fitment was great (as you'd expect). Cats - honestly I would stay stock Over to the headers, I would say it's a close call between the Tubis and the AWE. Both are nicely manufactured (the Tubi "looks" prettier if that matters to you). The nice thing about the tubi headers is that they do not hand down any further than the stock ones, which is an issue to some people. The tubis are about 1000 more than the AWEs though. Both are similair in style in terms of being longer tube and equal length and have venturi-style collectors.
