  1. How's your 996TT doin now? In your estimate, how may HP and torgue it gave you after installing the softronic. 30, 50, 60%. I plan to get one soon for my 2002 996TT. :thankyou:
  2. Great! Please keep me posted once you upload the softronic to your ECU. :thankyou:
  3. I plan to reflash the ECU of my 996TT. Has anyone had a softronic tuning for their 996TT? Id like to get some feedback before I order one. Thank you.
  4. How about GIAC? How does it perform?
  5. Yes, you can use your original F hose for the new after market diverter valves.
  6. Can anyone send me a DIY on how to install diverter valves for my 996 turbo? Thank you and will appreciate your response.
  7. How many HP increase if you swap a K16 for a K24?
  8. Its a 2002 Porsche 996 turbo, US/canada car. Car came from northern california. Thanks
  9. I found a connector with Violet and red/blue wires laying vacant in my 996TT. Looking at the wiring diagram the connector is for the tank venting valve. I used the durametric and the fault says "tank venting valve" (cant recall the number). Can anybody tell me where the socket of the tank venting valve connector is located? Thanks.
  10. I replaced my bosch plugs with colder BKR7 NGK plugs and they work well with my 996TT. Colder plugs are recommended for hotter turbo engines. The car runs smoother and acceleration response is much better. Bosch plugs are good but I think Japanese NGK plugs are better based on experience. Its cheaper too and doesnt foul right away.
  11. Hello JP, We finally found the source of the "p0013 camshaft adjustment open circuit" fault code. It's a simple wrong connector for the wrong socket. The connector going to the solenoid with grey/red and red/blue wires was plugged into the socket of the blow-off valve socket. While the connector for the blow-off valves socket was plugged in to the variocam solenoid. A couple of weeks ago, I had an independent porsche mechanic fixed the water leak at the oil and water cooler at the back of the throttle body which required aluminum welding of the water plug. He removed a lot of parts to
  12. Hello JP, Yes, I read the thread of Iceyankee-tsi. We removed the solenoid yesterday. We got a 11 ohms reading using a digital tester. When we put in a 12v to the solenoid, it wouldn't click right away.After a few jolts of 12v it clicked. After jolting it several times, the clicking got louder and louder. It seems it is faulty or maybe it needed a workout of 12v current. I already ordered a solenoid from autoatlanta.com. Hope it gets here in a few days. We checked the wires b+ and the trigger wires and there's continuity. We plan to remove the solenoid of bank2 today and swap it on b
  13. Hello again, Jpflip. I drove last sunday my 2002 996 turbo and got a CEL after a few miles driving. When I got back home. I used the durametric and found these codes: p0013- camshaft adjustment bank1 open circuit p0300- porsche falut 507 misfire detection p0301- porsche fault code 508 misfire cylinder 1 p0302- porsche fault code 510 misfire cylinder 2 p0303- porsche fault code 512 misfire cylinder 3 The CEL light was flashing before I plugged in the durametric. Can you give some clues what these means and what to do? I erased the faults and its back to normal. the CEL comes o
  14. I had the same problem today on the driver side door. The source of the problem came from the connector of the door sensor inside the door panels behind the door lock/opener assembly.If it's loose, the windows wont go up and you cant lock the doors with the key and the door light will stay on. All you got to do is remove the door panel, checked if the door sensor connector is tightly connected and that's it. I taped the connectors so that it wont move anymore. Constant opening and slamming the door over a period of time caused the loosening of the connectors. After that, I could lock and un
  15. :thankyou: Thanks again. We first checked the connectors, tightened the clips a bit and sprayed contact cleaner. Then, we connected a 12v line to the soleniod and it clicks. However, when I used the "drive links" of the durametric, it couldnt activate the bank1 solenoid. I activated the bank 2 and it clicks. Afterwards, we checked the the b+ line, there's continuity. We still haven't checked the trigger wire going up to the DME. Will do it today. Nevertheless, I test drove the car yesterday and it was normal. The CEL didn't lit up (it lights up after driving one miles or more) but when I use
  16. Thanks Jpflip. :thankyou: Appreciate it. Will work on the car this weekend. Question- will I damage the engine if I continue driving it? If I can drive it, how hard can I push the car? No one follows the speed limit in our country. That's our valuable freedom here in our country- we can over speed anywhere and the cops wont pull you over. They dont have radar guns too. :) In case I need to replace the soleniod, do you a part number for that? Thanks again.
  17. My 2002 996 Turbo CEL suddenly lit up last weekend. Then, I used my durametric and the fault code showed "P0013 Camshaft Adjustment bank1 Open Circuit". I could erase the fault but it comes back after driving a couple of miles. I didnt feel any changes on how the car runs even at .7bar boost. It drove normally. Can anyone help me fix this problem? Thank you.
