  1. ahlan b kil el libneniye.... Rammi the car has a saudi license plate, and looks like it's been sitting in the dessert for a while, i can't see how a car with Saudi license plate could stay in lebanon for 3 years without moving, the lebanese customs rules are that you have to take the car out of the country every 6 months. and the car can stay a maximum of 2 years then it has to have it's Trip ticket renewed. if you're interested in porsche wrecks like the one in the attached pictures, there's a lot here in dubai and i work with a lot of people who can assess the extent of the damage... hi man i am lebanese living in bahrain, if there is a way to find a wreck 996 c2 in dubai with a good engine and acceptable price i can come and buy it. thanks
  2. ok guys sorry to keep on bothering you with this subject, but the engine ended up to be a carrera 2004 engine c2 , as the porsche dealer confirmed to me today after taking 200$ just to check it :) what might be wrong? as i am certain that the serial number is showing diffrent facts. now the guy promised that after tuning the car it will be as fast as "rocket" which i strongly doubt. thanks joe
  3. Rammi if you wont buy it please send me a PM i will buy it for the engine. i am a lebanese too and i need a used engine for a 996 as i was just ripped off by a local mechanic :(
  4. thank you very much guys, actually here i dont even need an attorney - he will need one coz i can file a case directly in the police station and he will be screwed. yes i have been cheated but the stupid mechanic really thought i will not feel the diffrence?????
  5. :)anyway i live in bahrain. i wish i took the car home to lebanon coz we have good mechanics there thanks guys, so i will drive the car for 200-300 km to see if the performance will increase. actually now i feel i am driving a toyota corola :) the car feels heavy and slow, the RPM takes ages to reach to the next gear and if i remove my foot from the gas pedal it feels like i used the breakes. the guy who did the swap is an ex porsche certified mechanic and very well known, but i really feel he does not know what he did with my car. thanks joe
  6. thanks a lot for the help at least i know that they did change the engine how i can find out the specs of that new engine? i really want to know if it is S type and 3.6L like i was promised. thanks
  7. Please do a search here this has been covered many times... ok here it is: M96/2365308062
  8. thanks you guys but where i can find the engine serial? sorry but i am a bit illetrate in cars
  9. hi i just replaced my 996 c2 2000 model car engine, and the engine i paid for is supposed to be a cs4 2005 model. how to check that it is the right engine? because the car performance did not improve, i feel even that my old engine was more powerfull!!!!! thanks
  10. A faulty MAF sensor will affect performance. It's likely that the sensor degrades slowly over time and you become accustomed to the change without recognizing the performance or drivability has degraded as well. Good luck with the oil cooler change. Did they pressure test the cooler or just guess that was the problem area? THNAKS FOR THE RELPY they tested the car and then they actually removed the aprst out so i really dont know what this means :)
  11. ok took the car to my dealer and said they need to change the oil cooler and flush the engine!! another quik question: will a faulty airmass affect performance and speed? they are telling me that mine is gone bad but i dont feel any loss of performance, i only have trouble starting the car soometimes but it will always start after 2-3 tries. thanks guys joe
  12. thanks guys for the replies i checked the oil and it is clean there is no water inside but the oil is missing quarter the quantity i better take it to the local dealer and will update this post
  13. hi guys few days back i noticed a little under performance from my 2000 c2 996 / tiptronic gear. i noticed as well that the temperature meter is a bit higher then normal all the time but not to a level to consider the car is heated up. just today while trying to add water i noticed there is oil inside the water!!! what does that mean? should i stop the car and take it to the dealer? thanks for your help joe
  14. hi guys i have a small problem when i start my 996, sometimes (not always) it does not start from the first try. it starts then the RPM drops down to 0 slowly and the car is off, after 2-3 tries it starts ok and everything is smooth. but the fact that i need to try several times is bothering me. thanks
  15. hi it has a carrera sign and my 996 is 2000 model
