    996 Turbo
  1. Not surprisingly I've already read those posts !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am not solely interested in the ride height difference data ! The question remains ..... does the car clear speed bumps OK ??? (these are a popular road obstacle in ENGLAND and parts of Europe) Any response from 996 Turbo users in Europe would be most welcome. Thank you.
  2. Is anyone running a 996 Turbo with X73/74 suspension ? Could you tell me the ground clearance for the front spoiler lip ? Does the underside of the car clear speed bumps OK ? Any photo's showing how low the car sits would be great Thanks
  3. I put 2 new pre cat lambda sensors in mine and it runs much better now !
  4. Hi Scott, looking forward to hearing if the o2 sensor was the problem ! I understand they gradually deteriorate over time before they actually fail. Some people have suggested they should be replaced every 30k miles to keep the car running at its best . If it solves the problem on your car I will be changing mine immediately. Good Luck jay
  5. Normal Variocam , really !!! what revs does it change at ?
  6. I did read that topic ....... Mine is fine at high revs and while accelerating. It's cruising along and going slowly it seems to have trouble with. I have just been looking at the Durametric website, it looks like a very usefull thing to have. I would be very interested to hear how yours gets fixed.
  7. Hi, my recently acquired car (2000 996 Turbo) started to run poorly and the check engine light came on. I took the car to my dealer and they thought it had an air leak. They replaced the MAF sensor and it seemed to cure the problem. However after using the car a couple of times it seems to have developed a different kind of misfire ! It seems to occur between 1500 and 3000 rpm. when using a small amount of throttle. It is most noticable at steady speed especially on the motorway when it feels like the engine splutters for a split second ! almost like the power had been cut for a moment ! A
