  2. I have a 2002 C4S all Stock with about 62,000 miles (except for 19" 997 turbo wheels/tires - not stock) Lately my car has been feeling a little loose on the road 75+ MPH and in the turns not holding like it used to. Tires are like new. Also seems to be making some crackling noises when the wheel is fully turned and i am making a slow turn. Is it time to replace? maintenance my suspension? Are there any maintenance recommendations you guys can suggest? If it is time to replace, if so what should i be looking at? I am looking for something similar to stock, if not stock
  3. Progress made! Were able to run tests as suggested hot wiring a 12v source to vacuum switch, and it worked. Electrical review looks spot on... we have landed on --- we may have a bad relay.... ordered a new one today at Paul Miller what another $200+ at this point :(. Should have it in 2 days or so... everyone is optimistic that will solve it. Mental note - disable speedometer lead when installing relay: http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/2470-remove-pse-cutout-in-2-minutes-no-tools-required Will keep you posted, once again thanks to all for you suggestions..getting close.

Saga continues - glad it is in the default open position in the meantime :)
  5. Thanks for help folks..... still don't know what the issue is. But got my shop to agree it has nothing to do with coding or programming for the PSE. Also had Power Tech in New Jersey confirm they code for 997s, but there is not coding required for 996. Still don't know what the issue is, going to have to troubleshoot. Started her up today sounds great, so much nicer over the regular stock sound. But, even though the shop believes everything was wired correctly, pressing the button does not close the flaps, little yellow indicator on the dash button does not even light up on when we c
  6. Headed to Mechanic now thank you for this info. Will let you know what happens later today.
  7. Thanks. Completely forgot that part. It's a 2002 996 coupe C4S
  8. Just had my local mechanic install the PSE oem system for me. I am not able to control the opening or closing of the flaps. Vacuum not an issue appears to be not responding through the button. I am basically in the open mode. Sounds great but wanted the ability to open close the exhaust. Mechanic is telling me I need to go do dealership to have the PSE system coded and programmed. Haven't seen anything on having the dealer program anything for me. Any one have any insight or suggestions. I am suspecting install was not done correctly and would like to have more info what to do next and
