  1. I fed it from the dashboard, as there is where the switch was located. And then from them switch under the carpets and the rear seat, under the sub and then down into the engine bay through the rear self.
  2. hehe, way to revive an old thread. I got it installed, wasn't too hard. And hooked up to an original Porsche exhaust switch (with a clear coating to match the other switches). That car is sold now, the Turbo I have now has a Milltek exhaust, no switch :)
  3. Did a thorough test with Durametric today and found code 4201 on the ABS system (front right sensor - signal implausible). Guess the sensor is dirty or bad, and that explains the ABS/PSM errors. Still nowhere closer to an solution for the hesitation though. Any thoughts?
  4. Flash from EPL. Tried stock, same hesitation. Haven't checked AFR, what should I be looking for / what parameters to log? Not sure about boost control, car was tuned before I bought it. Trottle body was cleaned (although not very dirty) without removing it from the car. Removing it, cleaning it even more, and checking the egas electronics/mechanics is on the todo-list. Not sure about the wastegates either. Turbos have a larger compressor side as far as I know. Car was running great when I got it about a year ago. It's gotten progressively worse unless my mind plays tricks on me. It most defi
  5. Got an '02 Turbo with 67k miles on it, upgraded turbos, new motorsport DVs, chip, 100 cell Milltek exhaust, 5 bar FPR, and so on. Pulls strongly, no problems at WOT or spirited driving at higher rpms. The problem is a slight hesitation when getting back on the throttle at low rpms that's been getting progressively worse. Most noticeable in 1st and 2nd gear. I apply a bit more throttle to accelerate but the car seems to cut for half a second before pulling its **** together and giving me some power. It happens at low rpms, so I guess its not boost related. As it happens with the clutch engaged
  6. The sylinders on the M96 engines go more and more oval over time, until they eventually crack. Hartech and others reinforce the engine block to prevent further "ovaling", which is said to be a permanent fix. How will new oil stop that process?
  7. New oil every six months(!!) will do nothign to prevent your sylinders from going oval ;)
  8. Top 10? * Drive it like Porsche meant it (use revs, but on hot engine only) * Swap engine oil yearly * Follow Porsches maintenance program. That will be the best you can do and the first one will reduce the chance of IMS-failures. As for oval cylinders the only solution is to send the engine in for a cylinder reinforcement.
  9. foot well lights were standard on the turbo, optional on all other models. '02 ROW 996TT, no footwell lights.
  10. My 996 C2 has recently started misbehaving, it's getting harder and harder to select second, fourth and sixth gears. All the forward ones work ok (reverse, first, third and fifth). There is also a squealing sound when I put in the sluggish gears, as is it audible inside the car, I reckon it's from the ball joints in the shifter. I do have the B&M short shifter installed, but it has worked fine for 1,5 years. Could this be as easy as lubing up the ball joints again or am I looking at something more problematic here?Also, we've gotten a fair deal of snow lately and the temperature is below f
  11. To finish this off: Turned out that the ICV (idle control valve) had stopped moving as smoothly as it should. Cleaned it out and the idle got normal again. The car still gave worse mileage than usual and in the following MOT it failed on emissions. The dealer suspected a vacuum leak and left it up to me to decide what to do. I picked it up, thinking that I'd have a check around for a leak when I had the time. But after 15-20 minutes of driving it started running real rough with low power, and a really rough idle, it felt like it was running on five cylinders, or less. Returned the car, but
  12. Ok, that's too bad. Are the MY02 diagrams available somewhere online? I searched the download-section here and found nothing. Also checked http://www.2010.cannell.co.uk/manuals/manuals_porsche.html but they only have the 98-00 wiring.
  13. I came here looking to start a thread on this book and here it is, excellent! Unfortunately, it looks like the electrical schematics are the same ones as in the factory manual, correct? If so I guess they don't cover rain sensing wipers? I'm doing a bit of replacement work (the factory AWS12 system is TERRIBLE), but need better schematics to simplify the job. Does anyone mind looking up wipers in the manual and see what's covered? I'd be happy to buy the book if the information I need is in there.
