I believe that is normal for both the rear and front.
Mike S replied to arthur6's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thanks Loren. The 60 is what Suncoast sent me but the 53 was on the car as the original filter on this '08. I guess the 60 will work then. Thanks again. Mike
Mike S replied to arthur6's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I would do it yourself. The 911 is the easiest oil change I have ever done. The filter and plug are right there when you crawl under behind one of the rear wheels. No need to jack up the car. I have done it twice on my 2008 C2S. The hardest part, literally, is taking the 8 1/2 quarts of oil to the recycling center and having a big enough drain pan. I purchased filters, an oil filter wrench (used with a socket wrench), and replacement plugs from Suncoast. They were great and the prices are right. I don't have the part numbers but you will get the right parts if you select your car on Suncoast's web site (http://e-partssales.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?) Here is some info on sizes and torque settings: Oil drain plug: 8mm hex Oil drain plug tightening torque: 37 ft-lbs Oil filter canister size: 74 mm Porsche oil filter canister removal tool socket size: 27 mm (1-1/16 socket fits perfectly) Oil filter canister tightening torque: 19 ft-lbs You also need a torque wrench to be sure and get everything tightened down properly. Ummm... Oil Change Instructions DIY Loren, I am changing the oil in my Boxster S 3.4 liter engine. When I looked at the oil change instructions you mentioned the 3.6 liter engine oil filter ends in 60 and the 3.4 liter ends in 53. I ordered thee fiilter from Suncoast and they sent me the filter that ends in 60. The only difference I can see is that the 53 that came off of my car is totally flat on each end while the 60 has a narrow part around the opening that is elevated slightly versus the rest of the end piece. So my question is and I probably already know the answer is will this 60 filter possibly cause some problem? If yes should I for now stick the old filter back in so I can drive the car and change the filter only when I get the correct one? Thanks for any advice you can provide. Mike Siron
I just had the Porsche Sports Exhaust installed at a local Porsche specialty shop (much cheaper than any dealer quoted I may add). The last steps in the instructions call for the engine computer to be told the car has this exhaust, which I would have to go to a dealer to do. The bypass pipes are open now when I have the sport button on and it sounds very good. I am wondering if the engine computer part only activates the feature where the bypass pipes open more as the RPMs increase. If this is the case I think I would simply not have that done as it sounds great as it is. Does anyone know if that is what the engine computer activation does? Thanks.
