    Looking for 911.
  1. Sorry it's been so long since an update. I was out of town and have finally had the car at my local dealer for the last 1.5 weeks. Just a reminder, it's an '01 Turbo and it's almost completely stock. The only non-stock item in the drivetrain is the blow-off valves. Anyway, the dealer has been diagnosing it and has come to the conclusion it's not electrical. They hooked up their tester and was able to see map the slow advance of banks 1-3 vs 4-6. They were able to reproduce this 3 ways (my understanding): 1) with the cars computer hooked up 2) with the tester hooked up and telling the
  2. Hi All, I have a 2001 996 Turbo with about 58K miles on it. For the past ~3 years it's sporadically thrown p1341 code. When it initially happened my mechanic changed analyzed it and saw it wasn't advancing / going back at the correct rate. He was able to trigger the change with the tester so could easily see there was a problem. He checked out all the electrical items and decided the solenoid was most likely bad. He replaced that but the problem persisted. Upon his suggestion I continued to drive the car. Over the course of the next 2 years it through the code a couple of times e
  3. I saw this thread that I started early last year has bubbled to the top again. I did go ahead and purchase the Kumho's and am glad to state that I'm very happy with them. I have put about 6000 miles on them and they are exactly what I suspected - not as sticky as the Michelin's or Pirelli's (never tried the Contis) but still very good, quiet (easily carry on a convo at highway speeds, no drumming noise), look great, and seem to be wearing very well. I have not driven the car extensively in rain but when I do I'm happy with the way they handle. I did also bring the car with the Kumho's
  4. All, I had my '01 Turbo to the dealer this week for 2 items - rough clutch pedal travel & notification from the instrument cluster that reading the oil level has failed. The dealer fixed the clutch pedal issue siting a bad accumulator. The oil level reading is proving to be more difficult. The dealer, as did I, assumed the problem was the oil level sender. Once a new part was installed on the wire (but not in the tank) the tech tested the system and still saw a failure. He stated he put his ohm meter on the wires (assume he followed the details in the diag manual) and it looks like a s
  5. Hi all, I have an '01 TT and am wondering if it's possible to install a homelink transmitter into it. I checked Porsche's Tequipment and didn't find any reference to homelink. Does anyone know if it's possible to do? Where does the transmitter and switch reside? What are the part numbers and where can they be purchased? Thanks! -Steve
  6. Hi guys, I've had this question on my mind for quite some time. I've had my '01 TT to two driver education days and have noticed a change in the application of PSM - especially on the street. On turns where PSM would have kicked in fairly early before it seems to be letting me drive harder now after the 2 DE days. Same thing at the track - it doesn't really come on unless I'm getting the back end stepping out or the car's pushing in the turn (street tires still). The instructor I had for the 2 events has a C4 and swears the PSM system learns your driving style. I don't recall seeing any
  7. Hi all, Been reading the forum for a while - thanks for all the great info! I have an '01 Turbo that I purchased used in May with 17K miles. I've got about 22k now and it's still riding on the original PZeros. While the tires have tread left they are very hard and slip a lot, especially when cold. I'm looking to get new tires. I do participate in occasioanl "driver education days" - intend to do 5-6 a year (have done 1 already and 1 aborted (long story - highway debris kicked up and punctured my front radiator on the way)). Anyway, I've been doing research on the forums, web & ti
