  1. Go here, Kevin is on Rennlist, and has turbo solutions for all cars. He does zero clearence reworks of your exisiting and provides tunes . Give him a call. . http://www.ultimatemotorwerks.com/
  2. If you do decide to paint, use an adhesion promoter prior to painting. Then proceed with primer color and clear. Make sure the plastic is free of silicones and greases, and mold release prior to spraying on the adhesion promoter. U can use alcohol or a good detergent to overcome any of these.
  3. Brackets break on the cam positon sensors, if loose will generate a fault code.
  4. Get the Hankook V12, they have the same load rating and speed spec (Z) as N rated tires. Sumitomo HTZ's don't have the same load rating or speed rating. Great reviews on the Hankooks
  5. Probably serpentine idler or tensioner pulleys!
  6. Thought it was only available in black as an after thought, is this a true assumption.
  7. Someone mentioned sometime ago that he removed the hydraulic motosr and rams, disconnected the lines and filed them up with PS fliudand leak preventer and it worked. Did you check the rams themselves when the wing is up. These tings catch a .lot of dirt, and sometimes just need to be cleaned up.
  8. Had a similar issue with my 2002 996t, but in this case was a P0491 secondary air valve circuit. along with a moosing sound on cold startup! Well to make a long story short, the required vacuum of 20lbs was only at 16, so in essence the SAV was not getting enough, making the internal diaphram resonate. One divertor valve was starting to leak. It is recommended you go after market with the divertor valves since te Bosch OEMs are known to fail. I went to Champion for the pair ( Forge),with 90 degree vacuum connections, cost was $350 for the pair. They are much larger and fixed the issue!
  9. Those grills are fabricated. I don't think the factor grills will work that well since they are to be used in conjunction with the stock bass enclosures and speakers.
  10. Probably threw a weight! Once you get the wheels rebalanced and I assume you are having the rims balanced with stick on weights. If so take some of that metal tape used for home AC systems, and take a small amount and put it over the stick on weights.
  11. I f you can't get it there, you will have to pull the radio, see the SN and model # and go online and do a search and pay! I paid ,and got the right code. Try these if you need to! There are more if you search on Becker radio codes http://www.radio-code.co.uk/becker-radio-codes.html http://www.sws-solutions.co.uk/radio_coverage_becker.php
  12. U guys misread my post what I did say was with 160 thermo and housing, the baseline changes. Therefore when under highway speeds It is possible the car will run at less than 180 or somewhere cooler then when the 180 is in.! When in stop and go, the temp will go up, but when under way should cool down to a possibly less than then 215. Meaning the aggregate is less than when the 180 is in. I never said the 160 will overall keep it from going to 215 or so! My car with the 180 thermo in it with ambient temps at 50 degrees and on the hwy my car runs slightly above 180 nothing like the temps at more than 190! I agree airflow and flow determine the actuall effeciancy of the system.
  13. Whether you agree with changing out the thermo as offered by L&N is not for debate here since L&N has a pretty good reputation on Porscghe rebuilds and fixes for Porsche engineering foo pahs! So based on my discussion L&N has stated there are no issues running the 160 thermo and recommendds it for hot climates and stop and go traffic. The 160 thermo just lowers the baseline of when it opens therefore giving one more time to reach the higher temps then with a 180 thermo. One has to remember Porsche has designed their engines to run in a very large variety of climates, as obvious by their recommended oil list. So to just dismiss this suggestion made by a very reputable aftermarket engineering firm is just opinion with no fact to back it up! I for one living on SE florida plan to make the thermo change. If not satsfied, just put the old one back! IIt's niot only easy to change but it will not put a huge dent in your wallet. In this case I have every bit of confidence in L&N
  14. L&N assured me there are no issues using this thermo setup! I also raised the concern!
  15. LN Engineering is now offering a 160 thermo and housing as opposed to the stock 180. This might help! It fits the M96 and M97! Cost $171.95 http://www.lnengineering.com/lowtemperaturethermostat.html
  16. As far as transmission lube i just did mine and used RedLine 75-90 MTS which does not have the limitied slip fricton modifier. I will say the shifting has improved. Since I don't have LS, the lack of friction modifier allows the synchros to stop qucker. If you do have LS use any synthetic with the LS friciton modifier already in it! Most do!
  17. A supercharger on an engine wih 110K miles on it. To me a waste of money. You may not be on the road long. In additon your cars value is not there to support a new higher HP engine or supercharger. I would put the money aside, and wait another year! The 02 and 03 TT will be vey affordable.
  18. Put 10K miles on in 18 months, Only cost has been oil and filter, trans oil, fuel filter, cabin filter.! New coolant tank = Grand total of $460 in 18 months
  19. Befor buying mine I went to Porsche dealer with a VIN check, they gladly looked it up for me of any irregularities noted. I had no negative reports.
  20. I think the key quesion is what aftermarket units do not have resonance. Resonance will cause driver fatigue on long drives and cockpit noise that is not comfortable/
  21. If you have no setscrew, while pulling up twist at the same time!
  22. thats the info I am looking for, :) the car is in storage and I plan to fix it before spring. Thanks "Porsche certified" means any Porsche dealer should be address your issue. Even if you were not the original buyer the certification is transeferable and stays with the car. The key here is I do not know if the certification carries across the border. I would find out.
  23. The ecentrics as you can see are off center. This allows the person doing the alignment to turn the bolt which in turn pull or pushes things to make the alignment in spec. So as Loren says leave alone unless you are skilled at slignments. They do not move only when loosened and adjusted do they move.
  24. Not trying to be sarcastic, if it is certified, you should have no issue bringing it in!
  25. Usually the amp has a seperate power lead to the battery. If the battey cable was disconnected, I would assume that this cable may be hanging by itself. Pull the shroud and see if you have a power cable to the amp off! Power amps turn on and off by use of a sense singnal Hence the direct connection to the battery.
