  1. Yes. I hit .6 regularly. Not in every gear, but I do get full boost.
  2. No. I guess that will be next on the list. I've seen a lot of boost leak test kit threads. Any advice for testing myself?
  3. Yes, the sound can be heard with or without the a/c turned on.
  4. Thanks Loren. I actually had the Power Steering reservior changed, but that was a high pitched whining sound. That problem was resolved. The sound that i am hearing is more of a howling sound only at cruising rpms.
  5. Sorry if this has been addressed before. I have done a lot of searching and am at a loss at this point. Car is stock 2003 6Speed with aftermarket DV's and BMC air filter. 23k Miles. I am consistently hearing a howling noise that can be best described as air rushing through a pipe (kind of like when you blow air across a bottle opening). I think it is coming from the rear passenger side. This happens in 3rd-6th gear when the RPMs are in the 2700-2800 range and I am cruising with little throttle (no boost registering on the instrument panel). I brought the car to the shop and the car was diagnosed with a faulty diverter valve, so I had them changed with aftermarket DV's. I also had the power steering reservoir changed as it was squealing. Still the sound continues. It is quite annoying because the howling sound is constant while under cruising RPMs. Any other ideas of what I should look into? Thanks! Also, sorry for the newbie TT question, but is it normal to hear a similar winding down/ air rushing out a pipe sound when exiting the hwy onto off-ramps even when the car is not showing boost?
  6. btw, my car was sold with a PORSCHE Certified Warranty, not a dealer warranty.
  7. I am selling my car now and the person doing a PPI on my car is saying that the car has been resprayed. I knew nothing of this when I bought the car as a CPO in 2004. The dealer is saying to me that Porsche allows up to 2 panels per side to be resprayed and still allow them to CPO the car. Is this true?
  8. thanks for the help Loren. Unfortunately the codes didnt work. I will be calling the dealership monday.
  9. sorry. looks like i was missing a digit in my s/n. my S/N is W5010781 thanks.
  10. i broke mine when i was buffing the car....emailed bumperplugs.com and got my smoked LED replacement within 2 days. very nice product.
  11. I replaced my battery and I need a stereo code. Any help would be appreciated. becker cr 210 s/n W501781 LOOKING FOR A 4 DIGIT CODE. THANKS jARROD
  12. I thought that the 996 TT didn't come out till 2001????
  13. I just ordered a set of lloyd mats from automotion.com tonight for $109 (front 2 mats). Lloyd is the same people that made the OEM mats for my 99. I'll let you know what I think of them when they make it in.
