p-cardriver replied to vk5cp's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I have used PZeroRosso (original), PS2 and now have a pair of Hankook's on the rear. I got about 15k miles out of the Pirellis and the same out of the rear PS2s, but the front PS2 look like they're good for another 10k or so. So far (about 1000 miles) the Hankooks are just fine for street driving, great in the wet and do better on a cold day than either of the prior tires. I use Michelin Pilot Alpin winter tires (on 18 inch wheels) and they've been fine. About to start their third season and I hope they make it to the end, which would be outstanding wear (and over 20k miles!). I used up a set of Toyo TA1 street tires on the track (bought them to get the wheels they were on) and then used Nitto NT01s for track. Next season I'm going to try 19 inch wheels which will probably move me to the Toyo R888 - which many track rats disparage but I'm game to give them a try. If I don't like them, I'll have to figure out how to get a wider track tire than Nitto's 275/18 at a reasonable cost. If I had just street tires I might stay with the PS2, although so far I'm really liking the Hankook Ventus V12. Given my track use, I don't drive too aggressively on the street so I can use a "lesser" tire.
p-cardriver replied to p-cardriver's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)OBD II port for the MY06 Cayman is CAN. If they do not know how to connect to CAN then I suggest you find another company. Dozens, if not hundreds of folks have this working. BIG THANKS - that eliminated a lot of troubleshooting!
p-cardriver replied to p-cardriver's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thanks Loren. I'm not getting communication yet which has lead Race Technology to ask if I'm sure the CaymanS is CANBUS (or just OBDII). Do you know? Assuming it is CAN, I need to configure R-T's interface to read the channels I am after - but to do that I need to know which data is on what channel, the addresses, bit lengths, etc. I'm hoping someone has that info... but first to get the communication working.
Hooking up a data logger to our '06 CaymanS and have a cable to connect it to the OBD port. It could read the CAN data if I could provide the correct info. See this link for the configuration set up which shows the data needed (columns) for each data stream (rows): http://www.race-technology.com/wiki/index....II/CODBIIConfig I'm hoping I can get steering angle, RPM, Throttle angle and maybe some other useable data for track days. Posting here because I assume the same answer will apply to my '07C2S. Can anyone provide the needed inputs or refer me to a source (Race Technology does not have available)? Thanks, P-cardriver
Just to be clear on the ask... ideally I could get 4 connectors for the airbag part (I'm assuming its that middle, sort of L shaped part of the yellow connector) and then splice in the Sube/Recaro part. I really don't want to cut the harness! But I'm open to any suggestions.
The first photo is the main connector - car side. I know the seatbelt connector is the rectangular part at the bottom - two pins. I think the seat airbag might be the next block (sort of L shaped) with wires - from the bottom updward in the photo - yellow, black, brown, brown. So I'm thinking the bigger block, which has spade connectors in it, is the seat heaters. This is from the Cayman with manual, heated seats. The second photo is both connectors. I'm pretty sure the cube is for the passenger weight sensor for the front airbag. Partly because there isn't one of these on the drivers' side (just the big yellow connector), and partly because the gizmo it plugs into has a label I could partially read "weight" on under the seat. FWIW the big yellow connector has "Tyco 1452494-1" and "BMW 6 925557" and "02" on it. My local BMW dealer parts dept doesn't recognize the number. Tyco online recognizes their number but has no info available (probably just an OEM part). Anybody have any clues here? BTW, Sube says they won't take these parts back, so I've got to figure this out or find something fun to do with them.
I am switching to summer (DE) seats shortly in my '07 997S (and also in the CaymanS). The summer seats do not have thorax airbags and will turn on the airbag light - which I know can be reset at the dealer. But not liking the easy route, I purchased the Recaro airbag resistor kit (link below). Unfortunately the instructions are generic, so I need to know which wires under the seats are for the airbag including its ground. I think I'm looking for 3 wires. FWIW my seats are memory power heated standard seats; the CaymanS has manual heated seats (seems like the back adjustment is power, but I'm not sure).
