I just read through the owner's manual for the '87 911 and remember it saying to depress the accelerator for "warm" starts and the clutch for "cold" starts. It's not a high-tech answer, but it was in the manual. Hope it helps.
Wow! Glad I asked. That's a lot more involved than I thought. Thanks, Loren.

Ready to install a K&N air filter. Does anything have to be disconnected prior to opening the air box? How many screws have to be removed? Any pitfalls in this job? Thanks.
Wedge replied to Hroussard's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Can anybody shed a little historical perspective on this story? How did Porsche do in the "good old days" of the 964 and 993 based cars? I wonder if the philosophy set forth by Dr. W et al, the automation of production, and the Japanese influence has watered down the build quality and precision that Porsche has long been known for. Or, possibly, the cars are actually better than in the 70's, 80's, and 90's.
Wedge replied to hawk's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)When installing PSE without electronics, do you have to do anything to the valves to make sure that the PSE is always "on"/loud? Or will it be "on"/loud as it is right out of the box?
Wedge replied to Wedge's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Scott, Kim...thanks a lot. I appreciate the input.
Wedge replied to Wedge's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Much thanks!
Wedge posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Will a PSE with part number 000 044 200 21 work on a 2002 C2 coupe? Is that the most recent version of PSE? Thanks
Wedge posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Does anyone know which aftermarket exhaust is loudest at idle...PSE, Fabspeed, or GHL (loud version)? Also, what is the going rate for a PSE and where is a good place to buy one? Thanks
Wedge replied to trauh's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I used Scouser's instructions (steps #11 and #12) and pics to wire my spoiler switch. Piece of cake if you do what he did. The only thing to keep in mind is that he was wiring a right-hand drive car, so you would have to invert in your mind's eye (left becomes right, top becomes bottom) the switches and their tabs to get the correct polarity to the LED. I used the switch in the top left position in the dash (which was the PSM switch although any will do) and ran a 14g wire from the most lateral tab on the new switch (closest to the driver) to the lowest tab on the PSM switch. Then I ran a second 14g wire from the most medial tab on the new switch (closest to the passenger) to the most lateral tab on the PSM switch...and voila, it illuminated. Good luck.
Wedge replied to Wedge's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Well, I am definitely missing those top clips. I wonder if they popped off when I removed the console cover. Do you have a part number for the top clips?
Wedge replied to Wedge's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks Loren. My U shaped part has several locking tabs along the sides, but on the top I have just some rectangular holes. Are there supposed to be some metal or plastic locking tabs on the U shaped piece along the top? Or are there supposed to be metal clips on the vent piece? Any pics (2002 C2, US car)?
Wedge replied to Wedge's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks, all. I finally did get the switch to illuminate. It was simply a polarity issue. Thanks for all your help and suggestions. I learned a lot.
Many thanks to Loren and Scouser for helping with my wiring issue on the spoiler switch. It operates and illuminates! Now...when replacing my front center console (U-shaped plastic part), the top edge of the piece does not fit snugly/flush up against the dash behind it. I can still feel a SMALL lip/tag on the black plastic part that is attached to the center air vents, but the console piece does not engage these tabs. Hence the piece tends to bow out at the top. Is there a clip that I am missing? Is there an easy fix for this problem? Thanks in advance...again.
