    Cars. My son's name is Enzo and I tried to name my daughter Porsche but the wife had a saying. Work at Kuni Lexus, Littleton, Colo in sales. I get the evil eye from management for driving a Porsche to work. They want me in an IS-F. Love that car but like the awd on my 996TT in the winter and plus the 100hp gain over the IS-F. Here in higher altitude, turbos make a big difference.

  1. LMAO...then she'll just go buy more shoes.... ROTFLMAO... And shoes are very expensive on a 997... Regards, Maurice. I am thinking of dumping her for a younger 997 supermodel!
  2. Can you provide the actual codes? Bank 1 is driver side, position 3 is closest to the driver. Can you flash it back to stock? I would be very suspicious of coil packs, but I don't see why they would effect just one bank? Why do you use those plugs? Are they recommended by your tuner? I use Bosch FR6 for my tune. The ones I just pulled were Bosch FR6. I thought since I was having issues, try a different plug to see if I get different results. The codes were from a generic OBD2 scan tool here at Kuni Lexus. I will take it in to Porsche for a full reading, I just hate to spend good
  3. there are several things you can try: 1. change the battery 2. reset the fob by installing the battery reverse polarity for 15 seconds and then re-installing correctly 3. get a PIWIS or PST2 and reprogram the FOB... Thanks Wross. The batteries are new, tried polarity reset. No luck. I guess the dealer is my next choice. I have been going to Stevinson Imports on Broadway. Any independent shops you would recommend in Denver? Thanks.
  4. For two years now, one of my key fob was not working. In the last week, the second went and lost its ability to lock or unlock. It's a pain. Do I need new keys?
  5. The mods on the cars has been running fine for years, the problems have just been more recent issues. I have not put any new mods that affected the car. I have had many turbo cars including 2 Subaru STi's but the issues with the Porsche is far more complex. Thanks for the reply.
  6. Sometimes, a dependable Ugly Betty is nicer! ...sometimes
  7. Driving and owning my 996TT is just like dating a Supermodel! You love the looks, best feeling in the world when everything is going great, but the high maintainance kills you. There are days that I just want a reliable car. Then you remember all the reasons why I drive a 996TT. I just want my car to run like it was supposed to. Here is the latest issue: 2002 996TT X50 6speed and FVD chipped, 100 cell cats and exhaust fropm FVD with 83,000 miles on it. Regular boost is 1.1 to 1.2 bars when the Porsche is running good. Daily driver, 20K miles per year and driven in sun and snow.
  8. I had the same problem. Check to see that the front tire's size is close to the rear. If one is off, the car thinks it is losing traction and the PSM kicks in. I was running 245/35/19 in front on 11 inch wide whees, and 315/25/19 on 13 inch wide rears. At on ramps at faster than normal speeds but no where near at speeds to lose grip, my brakes would come on and the PSM light will flash. Scary feeling! With the PSM off, it will not happen as often but it still kicked in at higher speeds around a corner while braking. I am now running 235/35/19 and 315/25/19 on the same wheels and it seem
  9. Thanks guy! In your situations, did the engine check light came on and flashed several times before it stayed on for good?
  10. Hello Loren. Could you send me a PM also. I am having the exact same problem right now. Thank you in advance!
  11. No problems with sound quality, it is actually great. I do have an issue with when I turn the engine off and come back to turn it back on. What happens is that the tracks are lost. For example, I have 60 songs on playlist 2. When the ipod is first plugged in, it registers 60 songs. But when I turn the engine off and come back and turn it back on, it might read an error and it shows that I have only 30 songs and it will only let me access the 30 songs. I have to disconnect the ipod and then reconnect to register the correct number of songs. A bit of a hassel but not too bad. I'd take it
  12. Direct from Solisto. It was not hard but shipping is not cost effective. I am talking to them about distribution in the US but I need to see what kind of a demand there is. If anyone is interested, please let me know. Thank you! Hi, i'm new here & this is obviously an old topic but i sure can use some help, i purchase my new 2002 996tt last week and drove it back home (1500+mi) loving every minute of it, but i've to admit that the AM/FM radio/cassette (got read of them years ago) was a diapointment, i first belived that the slot for nav cd would play music cd's, not so, ther
  13. Is the Green 997 your 996 after the conversion? If it is, Wow, that looks great! Who did you go through for the parts?
  14. Just an update. I went in to the dealer again for another issue, grinding noise as I am turning the steering wheel, only on warmer days. They replaced the strut bearings last week thinking it was the issue but the noise was there as I drove off the dealer. Under further inspection, it is looking to be the ball joint. Good thing I have extended warranty. When I was there yesterday for the inspection, I did talk with the shop foreman about the boost issue. He and I went for a ride and he felt it right away. He thinks it is a fuel or spark issue from FVD chip. He is willing to switch out
  15. I have an extra Solisto for a Nav 2002 996, brand new in the box with all instructions and cables. I am in Colorado and I have it in my car now and it took me less than 30 minutes to install it myself. You do lose your CD changer but sound quality is excellent. The controls are a bit weird. You get 5 play lists as CD1 - CD5 and CD6 is for direct control from your ipod. Sometimes when you turn the engine off and then get back in the car later, the ipod starts over from the beginning instead of from where you left off. It does charge your ipod so that is nice. If interested, do a google s
