  1. Loren, Thank you for the information. I have a real PST2 (not the PC version); how can I obtain the paper version of the service manuals. Eugene
  2. Hi Richard, You seemed very knowledgeable on PST2. Is there other detail information I can find somewhere? Something like how to program a key or reset the car to readiness? Thanks, Eugene
  3. Unless you do the job yourself, you cannot find a better Porsche performance shop in the Bay Area.
  4. This is funny! I do agree with wross996TT; it should drop boost when leaking. Maybe when the DVs weren't properly installed, they actually block the flow.
  5. Or spend another $60 more to get the one plugs into your cig. lighter... then you won't connect it wrong.
  6. I think it is the battery too. When my battery was dieing about two weeks ago, I had all sorts of lights coming on one after the other. Everything was back to normal so far, excepted for I needed to disconnect my battery (I did it over night, but some say 30 min. is good) to reset the ECU.
  7. I have a Tip myself and love it; if you're thinking about tracking, go with 6speed. Some say 6speed are faster, but I know mine is fast. However, I know that 130-top is faster with 6speed. I have not heard anyone needed to replace a Tip transmission and only heard a seal problem from one person. But manual clutch needs to be replaced especially you are going to high hp. The Tip should take up to 700hp without a problem. Yes on dealer PPI. Buying a mod car is fine, most abuse comes from tracking. My car is mod'd (stock when purchased), and I don't abuse the car; only do a wot once awhile. It is good to know the age of the owner too.
  8. I have been trying to get one of these 8-track boxes... you're so luck and got one that came with the car.
  9. Well, in my case, it's not a dead battery - all's pointing to the alternator. Dropped it into my local indi this morning - they told me that they've had quite a few '01 and '02 facelift 996's in recently for new alternators, so it may be just things of a certain age starting to pack up :( In my case, the Battery/Gen light didn't come on; but other warnings like PSM/ABS came on for about a second and went away. I replaced the OEM battery... hopefully that's it.
  10. You can find a lot of P-car info here... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_996
  11. The chirp function also affected my window... didn't close all the way. I turned off the function and re-enable the remote top function. All functions are working fine except for the disable chirp function.
  12. Look at the bright side, you don't have to hold the buttom to open your top. :D I actually have the same problem with my RemoteTop; and I didn't change the battery. Since I bought the RemoteTop because of the Lock/Unlock when driving/pull key and the chirp when lock/unlock, I disabled the remote top up/down function. However, I think this maybe related to the chirp function being set "on". You may want to turn off that function to see if the top still comes down when unlock.
  13. Check out this website... http://www.autopia-carcare.com/ I used the swirl remover product (applied three times like the instruction) with a Porter Cable buffer. Most swirl marks were gone except for those deeper one. I have a dark red car and the production is especially for darker cars. This product doesn't remove clearcoat but to fill it. It came out really good. Remember to wax it after, or the swirl marks will show up again after a few months. There are instructions on the website too.
  14. I would say PSS9 and H&R Sway Bars (I will have them soon).
  15. Thank you for the info. I'm in the Bay Area and am not sure what kind of "wheel shop" you mentioned. We have tire shops here, but pretty sure they don't sell extensions. Do you have a picture?
  16. I have a set of HRE 890R wheels with the valve stems inside the spokes. Pumping air at gas stations is difficult because most nozzles won't fit thru between spokes. Is there a tool (like an extension) or tricks to make the job easier? Thank you.
  17. Thank you Lightstream, I'll keep that in mind. I actaully took the car to a local tire shop. The outcome is not bad. The mechanic spent 2+ hours aligning the wheels. I guess I got my money worth, $130 vs $400.
  18. Thanks Somahone, It is good to know that they do about the same job.
  19. I currently run the Fabspeed on my tiptronic TT and the drone absolutely kills me. Have a friend with a tiptronic TT that has installed the Europipes. Strangely he apparently still encounters drone with the pipes (though I have yet to sit in his car and see what his idea of drone is), and when he contacted Europipes they said that it might have something to do with the fact that he is running it on a tiptronic. I find that slightly strange though. In any case, thanks for the info, will look into the Europipes more seriously now. Hi Harold 348, Do you have the normal version of Fabspeed or the "quiet" version, which specifically for cabriolet with tip?
  20. I just had my 04 996TT stage 2 completed a couple of weeks ago. It included a Fabspeed cat and a "quiet" exhaust, and V-flow intake. The sound is not "quiet" around 2000+ rpm; but it sounds really good when at lower or higher rpm. I noticed that there is no different before or after installing the Fab at low rpm. However, I can feel the car is faster at the top because the air flows thru so fast. This is true for TT but not sure for C2.
