judgejon replied to Ed T's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Sender. Been there, done that. Good luck.
Factory x51 should be considered. Would likely require replacement trans and diff, etc, but horsepower would be good.
It’s new engine time. Porsche had class action suit filed against them re ims issue. Too late to join in now. Consider x51 engine as replacement. Good luck.
judgejon replied to Eștii's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Do you have heated seats? If not, add circuit to seat heater fuse location. This is an un-switched fuse that is powered when engine is running. lots of info on forum. Search engine will be your friend.
judgejon replied to Nicky03's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Replace ignition switch. Good pics on forum about this.
Consider x51. Good luck
Exactly so. And it’s a retrofit I’ve never regretted and would highly recommend to all for peace of mind. Permanent Solution LNE seems best way to go.
Good call, Jeff. It may already be too late. Good luck, mj..
Did you say metal flakes? Don’t wait, do the IMS right away. You will have immediate peace of mind.
I haven't been to the forum for awhile now, but glad to see the possible restart of the old "oil wars." 10-40 might be a better consideration in colder weather, but 20-50 probably ok. I recall using Castrol in my SC. Are you heading to Islay for the festival? Cheers, jl
use a silicon based lubricant, attracts less dust than WD40, etc. I had to replace the entire mechanism on my '79. good luck.
