halik replied to kurtdiver's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I think "why" Is the better question here...
Removing cats will for sure increase the exhaust velocity and output of the engine. You're going off of some 60s back pressure/low torque wife's tale.http://mechdb.com/index.php/Exhaust_back_pressure_myth
Does it stay there when you turn the car off?
Can you turn the motor over by hand?
fixed, thanks loren
Hey all, I've started noticing really peculiar noise on my 4S tiptronic. When the car is first started after sitting for a bit and you give it a bit of gas to roll forward, I hear what I can best describe as a bike spoke clacker noise (3 metall sounding clicks) coming from the front, somewhat leftish area of the car. This happens only once and I cannot recreate it again until I turn the car off. Also the noise doesn't appear until I give it a bit of gas in drive (drivetrain moves); it will not appear if I'm creeping around while covering the brakes. I can recreate it every time by just turning the car on and off. Any idea? I'm gonna see if i can get it on camera. At 3 seconds you can hear it. Almost sounds like someone sticking something into spinning fan blades. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSe0sQ2uE6A http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fIAvVFvkVo
Err my mistake, meant to say the chain guides.
Plastic stuff usually means valve guides are getting chewed through.
It's possible that you tore the harness someplace while swapping the motor. Also any chance you swapped the harnesses around by accident? Cars that have o2 sensors hooked up backwards (ie left bank sensor hooked to the right bank) get all sorts of misfire/rich/lean ODB codes.
Cheap enough to be a core
halik replied to chard's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Trivial, open the center console container and lift the rubber bottom pad. You'll find one screw on the rear end of it. Uncrew it, lift the plastic plate it secures and voila.
Is that a serious question?
halik replied to venturawildes's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)No hole where it needs to be, I had thought about going ghetto and zip tying it to the wishbone, but decided against it. This is definitely not a car one can easily work on, sure, once you know the tricks its ok. All about knowing the tricks. I guess you could drill it, it's pretty soft aluminu.
