buckeyedoc replied to cayenneturbo's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)The first unit just caused "confused" up/downshift for some reason and actually Slower accel.; the replacement unit did exactly what they claim...very noticable, and appreciated, quicker response to accel...Sprint doesn't claim to incr. HP, just to greatly reduce accel lag. Easy to install, too. Worth 350.00 fo sho. Not snake oil in this case
buckeyedoc replied to cayenneturbo's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)I put the Sprint Booster in my 2004 V6 and definately feel the diff...cuts lag on accelaration...got it on ebay...the 1st one I received didn't work...the seller sent a 2nd one without having to return the first one and it works great...it's not that expensive but it really helps shorten that annoying delay on acceleration
Love my Scorpions
PIWIS showed NO faults...I stood right there while he ran the diagnostics with engine jerking, yipping, kicking --trying to get one more heart-beat...before finally straight-lining. Other techs working on other cars were looking over their shoulders probably wondering what the hell I could've done to make such a cool car like this slowly choke dead like an abused dog on a chicken bone. How can a problem such as engine stall from fuel cut off not result in a code? :cursing: I DUNNO Turns out fuel filter had blockage which in turn caused fuel pumps to dive over time? Mechanic says we need to r
First water pump...then drive shaft...now the **** thing has a fuel system problem that causes it to drop RPM and eventually stall out after 30- 40 secs. Starts up great and purrs. Then starts to cough and hiccup and eventually has seizure before dying out. All this at 57000 mi, bare_ss naked(no warranty) and within the last 30 days! In the shop now. ECM? Waiting to hear if it should just be shot and put out of its misery...if it was a horse...
Get a "new" one made by same manufacturer and plan on replacing again at 50k more mi.. $200 is $200 Why rebuild for $500 when $700 all is new, it will require less labor too...wouldn't it?
I agree with possible Drive Shaft issue...just had mine replaced...all too common occurrence in Cayennes. Starts out as a mild "flutter" under your right console armrest then progresses to worsen to "wuddering". Occurs with acceleration under load.
There is a rebuild of the cardan propeller shaft available now by a company in Denver...google it and you"ll find them. $500.00
Also could be the water pump...just happened to me 0n my "04. Same thing, coolant loss, no puddle but eventually smell of hot antifreeze.
