  1. Here is something I came across below: "Radiator Fans Connect a wire to the ground of the 2 high speed fan relays located on the relay carrier located in the driver’s side foot well. The relays are #20 and #22. Feed this wire to where your switch will be located. Connect the wire to one side of the switch. Connect another wire from the other contact on the switch and then connect the other end of this wire to a chassis ground point. (Just remove one of the fan relays, insert a 16/18 gauge wire in the #85 socket and put the relay back in. Now, touching the other end of the wire to any g
  2. have you tried installing the lower temp thermostat? It is really surprising to me that the car, which doesn't have the performance envelope as a turbo, has the larger radiators hence having more cooling capacity than a c2 (arguably) with the smaller rads. Maybe the thermostat just needs to open up sooner, which I agree the stock spec'd thermostat is rumored to open up after it hits its spec'd mark. Yes, I installed the LN Engineering low temp thermostat a couple of weeks ago, along with a new water pump. Fairly easy job. The low temp stat is a really nice piece. It came complete with
  3. I cleaned my radiators recently. And I've never experienced cooling issues, at least according to the gauge. However, the gauge isn't that accurate and I do know these cars run quite warm. In the summer time, I typically make several trips from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. And as you know, driving through the desert, the outside temps can get upward of 110 degrees. The 3rd radiator probably not really a need, per se. But it's more of a preventative maintenance issue. Also, I tend to be overkill on mods to my car. And there is a coolness factor to the looks of the 3rd radiator. :thumbup:
  4. Yeah, I saw the DIY Loren did. Very informative. But his application is for a C2 which doesn't have the larger radiators like our C4S's. I would think the same center radiator would work. But I'm not sure the hoses would. I'm trying to figure out if the fittings on the L/R radiators for the C4S and Turbo models are the same as the C2 radiators. I could always go with a center radiator and hoses from a Turbo (there is an aux. radiator they make for that car, according to a parts diagram). But then I'm not sure the bracketry from the kit Loren used would accommodate the center radiator from the
  5. I'm wanting to install a 3rd radiator on my 6-speed C4S. I know there are 3rd radiator kits available from various places. However, the kit offered from Suncoast Porsche states their kit will not fit on a C4S, Turbo, GT2, or GT3. See link below. http://www.suncoastparts.com/product...96WaterCooling I know the C4S shares the same larger L/R radiators as the Turbo. So perhaps I need to use the 3rd radiator from a Turbo? Can anyone confirm this? Has anyone installed a 3rd radiator on a C4S with a manual trans? Which kit did you use? Thanks for your help.
  6. I attempted to install the aftermarket guibo on my cardan shaft, instead of having to replace the whole shaft. Unfortunately, the guibo wasn't compatible (at least to my liking). See pics below. Basically the aftermarket guibo I ordered looked identical to the OEM guibo....same shape, circumference, holes lined up, etc. However, upon closer examination, the aftermarket guibo was a bit thicker. More importantly, the metal locator sleeves inside the guibo were flush with the guibo itself. On the OEM guibo, the metal sleeves stick out farther than the guibo itself. They act as locators when fitti
  7. Changed the master clutch cylinder and the noise is gone. Thanks for all of your comments. Carrera3.2, When I did the clutch/flywheel, I also replaced the: - IMS bearing and flange with LN Engineering upgrade - All 3 cam chain tensioners - RMS - AOS - Water pump - LN engineering Low Temp thermostat - Slave cylinder - Clutch master cylinder - Sparkplugs and all 6 coil packs - Cardan Shaft (the rubber guibo on my original shaft was cracked) - Coolant reservoir tank and cap - Changed Trans and front diff fluid - Changed oil and filter Hope this helps. If I can t
  8. Hey RFM. Thanks for the response. Actually, the clutch pedal feels great (like new) since I installed the new clutch/flywheel. I don't feel the ticking with my hand or foot. The noise just seems to disappear when the pedal is pushed. I thought it may be something in the clutch master cylinder or assist spring. Those are two items that were not replaced. I did however, replace the slave cylinder. Could you give us some more vehicle info on this problem; MY and mileage for example? I am interested in tracking clutch life on these 996s. Thanks. Hi Carrera3.2. It's a 2003 C4S with 83

  10. I am experiencing a low frequency ticking noise coming from the area by the clutch pedal (inside the car) and it goes away when my foot touches and actually depresses the pedal. It only does it when the car is running and my foot is off the clutch (usually at a stop in neutral). Any ideas what this could be? I replaced the clutch, throwout bearing, pressure plate, flywheel, and slave cylinder last week (and bled the system). I was in need of a clutch, BTW. Everything feels great. But there's still a slight ticking right behind the dash in the area of the pedal assembly. Once I depress
  11. ahh you're right :) Guys, it's all good. I appreciate your feedback. :cheers: I made a similar post on rennlist. There, I learned that you can use a guibo from a 84 BMW 318 automatic. The part is very slightly different but works perfectly and costs less then $50. Here's the website I ordered it from. $38. I ordered a new cardan shaft today (before learning this). So if this guibo works, I'll be returning the new cardan shaft. I'll keep you guys posted. http://www.bmwpartsweb.com/BMW-Parts/Drive-Shaft-Guibo-Flex-Disk-E30-84-85-318I-M10--87-92-325-IISIC--91-92-318-IISIC-M42__261112256
  12. The rubber "Guibo" on my cardan shaft is cracked. It's recommended to replace. However, you can't just replace that one part. It requires a whole new shaft. Does anyone know if the "Guibo" off of a Cayenne will work. It seems Porsche sells that part separately for the Cayanne, but not the Carrera. Below is a link which provides a visual of the rubber "Guibo". They look identical. But the measurements may be different. I've tried calling a few dealerships and they haven't been able to confirm weather it will work or not. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks. http://www.vertexaut...sc%20Guibo.asp
  13. Thanks for the welcome everyone. Here's a pic of my C4S. Hope it works.
