  1. Hi everyone, I'm writing here cause I have a question/issue onmy 993 tt with oil "mess". Since I had some oil loss from the upper valve covers and from one chain tensioner cover, I decided to remove the engine to do a proper job. But when I had it out I noticed that the complete intake was full of oil, a lot in front of the turbochargers and in the Y pipe. I had to remove the turbo ventilation hoses too and the right one was practically full of oil... I have to say that the turbochargers are both just revided. So I decided to remove the complete intake RAM and looked in the intake valve channel. I attach a picture but i was surprised the valve steams looked incredibly clean, and "yellow". The exhaust valve (seen through the intake) looks white as from oil combustion. So, for sure I'm burning oil, nevertheless the engine is not smoking at all in any condition (cold start, running, accelerating or coasting). I have no experience with Porsche engines but this yellow color of the intake seems "funny" to me, never seen this before, same for the clean valve. Is this normal or a problem? Has anyone ever seen something like that? Thank you very much for your help Regards from Switzerland
  2. Hi JFP and thank you for your comment. Here in Europe you can have Osram Night Breaker as Xenon bulbs too, D1S type Model 66140XNB, don't know if they're not available in US. The bulbs installed before, that i removed from the Headlight were standard Philips XenStart, so absolutely normal bulbs with 35W. Sincerely, I don't believe that the damage to the reflector was caused by wrong bulbs, and I saw too many "burned" reflectors and posts in german forums to believe it. I think it's a quality issue of the reflector. But I'm with you when you write that I'm in the market for new headlights.... or... it looks like there are companies in Germany that can refurbish the reflector.
  3. Hi all, I own since a couple of years a 2004 CTT and due to the fact that i drive it only rarely at night, only recently i noticed that the Xenon lights were producing only little light (brightness). I had the impression I wouldn't have any light at all! So I supposed the Xenon bulbs could be "burned" out and decided to buy new ones. I got the new Osram Night breaker unlimited ( so teoretically 70% more light) and installed them... no difference!! At this point i searched in the net for more information about this (if i was dreaming) and found out the the problem is well known on other brands (like Audi, BMW...). The Reflector (the part where the bulbs are located) burns out and becomes black. So i disassembled mine and saw it. I attach a picture. Does anyone here has or had the same issue? Regards
  4. Hi, thanks for the description. Did it solved the P0011 problem? I have the same on mine and would like to get rid of it too.... On different post I could only find that the problem is related to the chain. Let us know if the fault is gone
  5. I think the pumps have the same specification, but the fuel tanks are different. The tt has 4 WD and a 63l tank while the GT only 2WD and a 92l tank. So the pumps have different installations, the tt having one piece with the tank level sensor included and the GT2 is separated.
  6. Hi GT2IAN thank you for your answer. Meanwhile i have been told that when they look like this they have to be exchanged cause they could disappear in a dust cloud.... Not really a nice though. About your front discs, you said you got new one's. Can you tell me what part number you got? Even there I know that there are 3 different part numbers, ending with 2 (1.gen) 3 (2. gen) and 4 (3. gen). Apparently this final number differentiation is valid for front and rear discs. Thank you boldis
  7. Hi all as some of you probably already know i own a 996 GT2 MY02. I buyed this car short time ago and was not fitted with PCCB Brakes. The previous owner changed to steel (and destroyed even that) so that I had to change all disks and pads. Now the car has new steel discs and Pagid pads. But personally i think that due to the fact that all GT2's had PCCB on stock, mine should have it too. So i searched and searched and at the end I found a complete brake set on Ebay. The price was OK so I took it. Having zero experience with the PCCB discs they looked OK to me, so i was happy. Now, after some looking at them I found out follwing: The front discs are the newest available from Porsche, 3. Generation and look ..... let's say OK. The rear discs are Generation 1 and look... ugly. I tried to post 2 pics, hope you can see them. Are they ready for garbage or still usable? Thank you Boldis
  8. Hi I'm writing from Switzerland and have read lots of posts regarding hybid turbo's from blouch turbo. Tried several times to contact them via email, to the mail address written on their homepage but i never get an answer. Does anyone here knows if they have a new address or how to contact them? Thank you boldis
  9. Hi, I decided to buy for my 996 GT the workshop manuals and PET from Porschelibrarian and got from him a perfect service and all kind of documentation i liked to have. I recommend him as great source of information about our loved cars. Thank you Porschelibrarian. (sorry for my english) Boldis
  10. Thank you all for the suggestions. It's clear to me that a GT2 is "harder" to drive in town than a "normal" car, still the engine is basically the same as in every 996 Turbo (apart from turbochargers and intercooler), so I can't belive that it "has" to be so rough as mine. I'm using V Power fuel here (100 RON) and the last service is 4000 km back. I noticed too that everything needs to be on temperature (expecially the gearbox) to make it a little better (when it's cold than gearshifting is really hard). The suggestion about cleaning the throttle body is very good, I'm going to take a look at it. Thanks again. Boldis
  11. Hi and thank you for your replies @greenboxter You're surely right about " why slow driving around if you have 450HP" but I'm not living on the racetrack so I also like to drive the car everyday just ..."to drive it". About the MAF, I already changed it but it didn't help. I felt no difference. My old 993 Turbo S had 450HP too and practically the same engine (but a different ECM) but it never had this symptoms. It was absolutely smooth to drive (surely smoother than my actual GT2) even if the boost was slower to build up. Anyway i do not belive that the boost surging has anything to do with smoothness at 1500 rpm (and no boost at all). @Gt2ian As said, the MAF is brand new and this shaky feeling is there in all gears, in low gears more than in higher. About the Diff, I think you're right, it can be very well related to the diff the "hardness" in the parking. I also tried to buy the durametric diagnostic tool to see what was happening when the engine is running, in reality i did not found anything really "wrong". Anyhow the feeling tells me that probably the engine sucks "wrong" air from somewhere, but how to find out? Thank you guys for your help.
  12. Hello everyone, I'm a new member in this forum but I have already read a lot of post regarding all kind of things. Too bad, nothing that has something to do with my concern. I own since august a 996 GT2 buyed here in Switzerland, used, with 63'000 km on it. The car is in very good optical shape but strange to drive. Before this 996 I have driven during the last 10 years a 993 TurboS and i was very satisfied with, for sure I'm not an unexperienced Porsche driver. Now my problem: My 996 is very bad to drive on light loads, like city driving around 50 km/h (30mph) , pushing the throttle very gently and release, just to hold the speed, the car shakes like it would go into fuelcut in and out. Very unconfortable. The clutch is also really hard and shaky when you try to park the car. Has anyone here similar experience or it's a fault of my car? My 993 was much better in this regards. I have never driven other GT2's so I dont know how they feel on normal everyday driving. Thank you Boldis
