  1. Realize that unless it is a Porsche specific tool (PST2, PIWIS, Durametric), some codes may be difficult to ascertain or reset. Hopefully your indy has a PST2 or PIWIS if they work on Porsche.
  2. After you get the appropriate codes, there is a grocery list of things to check. Typically, coils and plugs are the culprits, but since you just had them changed...make sure they were installed correctly and gapped correctly....swap out the ones that are misfiring with ones that aren't?...Did you do a pressure check? Wastegate, N75 Valve....
  3. Other than the tune, could you please provide more info on your car? What other mods are there? When was the last time you changed plugs/coil packs? Cleaned the TB? or reset the throttle adaptation?
  4. Best to give Todd a call or email for sure. My guess is it would still be safe, but whether you get all of the performance you want is another question. Protomotive - Building the World's Fastest Porsches WWW.PROTOMOTIVE.COM
  5. Not sure what "replacement" boost hoses you are using, but you should actually hear a click when they are connected properly.
  6. Of course it's your call. You might be able to find a used stock intake on ebay or somewhere. I thought the BMC filter is also lightly oiled. I can't speak for you, but if it were me, I'd get rid of whatever the heck you have in there. Two issues with the MAF...potential oil contaminating the MAF or turbulent airflow. I have used a BMC filter for 15 years with no issues.
  7. Yes, typically there will be codes. Sometimes these appear as ABS/PSM codes....but sometimes the car just runs poorly. In any case you should have the codes read on your car with Porsche specific code reader (e.g., Durametric, PST2, PIWIS). Those circular filters tend to disrupt airflow over the MAF causing voltage spikes in the MAF. Sometimes killing the MAF or sending strange signals to the ECU.
  8. I don't know how simple it is...not sure what was ripped out to put that monstrosity of an air box in. I'm kind of surprised you haven't been having MAF problems.
  9. Hmmm. I'm not sure WTF that is. That is certainly not the stock airbox. Sorry to say it looks like quite the hack job to boot. The Y pipe looks stock.
  10. Lookin' good!! Watch that front lip...you'll likely hit that a few times to start. For me upgrading was a personal thing. I enjoyed reading and talking to guys that know their stuff (Kevin, Kevin, Mark, etc.) and from there made a progression of upgrades. Oh yeah, a triple black cab. Enjoy and drive safe.
  11. In terms of ride height, realize stock heights vary depending on US vs. ROW. Front (target mm): US = 158, ROW=138, X73=128 Rear: US=163, ROW=153, X73=133 The Euro version PSS9's I had installed (due to stiffer springs because I have a Cab) dropped the front 22mm and the rear 20mm...of course this is from US spec heights. You could probably lower it more, though I have read about issues with trying to go GT2 height. The ride is significantly better in every way IMHO.
  12. I don't know the model, MY of your car, but I installed Bilstein PSS9's many years ago and have been very happy with the ride. No PSM issues at all.
  13. Lose the V-flow (V-blow). I tried it and lost 2 MAFs. Went to a Sportec intake and haven't lost a MAF since.
