Hi Loren. Turns out the parts noted as "air pumps" at Oklahoma Foreign European are actually tire air pumps, not smog pumps, so I'm sol so far. I do have some phone numbers from a great guy, Jeff Clark, up at Sunset Imports up in Beaverton, WA, that I'll need to pursue. Jeff tells me that there are 8 smog pumps left in the world, in Germany, at $2,336 each, plus shipping. Ouch. I don't think I can do that and still get the car sold at any reasonable price. any other suggestions? I wonder if you've had experience with getting waivers from the DMV? I know that '75's and under are exempt, but I've never dealt with any waiver issues. thanks, and .....cheers, jl
Does anyone know where I can find a new or rebuilt smog pump for a '79 911SC? I most regretfully have to sell my car, and it turns out that I will need to replace the smog pump to comply with California registration laws. Help would really be appreciated. Thanks to all, jl
I agree that if you're getting a new car you should get the pcm. I'm now using my 2003 C4S as a daily driver, and after driving a 911SC for years have had some adjustment problems. I'm guessing the mid engine Boxster is like the 4-wheel drive...going smooth in and out of corners, rather than hitting the apex and powering out of turns with max throttle steer. Smoothing it out through the curves is the key. I can't drive the C4 like the SC because the pcm comes on in the corner and scares the pants off me. so I usually turn it off when driving over local mountain roads. but I wouldn't have the car without it and intend to keep it on in wet conditions. I did make the mistake of putting a different brand of new tires on the rear, and should have known better, but I'm dealing with that. good luck....
