  1. I have a 2016 Cayenne Diesel. My understanding is that Aisin made the transmissions for the 2016 Cayenne Diesel. My understanding is that the transmissions for all other 2016 Cayenne models were made by ZF. I hope this information is helpful. b-man
  2. Can someone tell me what the maximum turbo boost (psi or bar) is in a stock Cayenne Diesel (which uses the VW 3.0 TDI engine)? I am interested in the spec for a 2015 or 2016 model year vehicle (which have the same engine). I've looked around, but cannot find this information. I don't know why it is so hard to find, or maybe I am just not good at searching. Also, is there some type of easy to use device that will let me see the boost level in real time with these vehicles? I thought I heard about something you can attach to the vehicle's computer which lets you make a connection via Bluetooth, and use it with an app for a phone. Thank you in advance for your reply. b-man
  3. I heard that information was never published by Porsche. b-man
  4. Thank you very much for the pictures and updates. I am looking forward to your future posts. b-man
  5. I got everything working fine now. I will answer my own question with the hope that this may help someone in the future with similar problems. I found the following related thread to be helpful: http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/10388-no-sound-from-speakers-does-the-stock-amp-have-a-fuse-somewhere/ I checked my fuses at position D8 and D9. They were both 15 amp fuses on my car. The D9 fuse was blown. So I changed it and everything works now. b-man
  6. OK, so I got the radio removal tools. They worked perfectly and the radio came out easily. The 10 amp fuse in the back was blown. So I changed the fuse, entered the security code, and everything seemed to work perfectly except for one thing . . . there is no sound. All of the radio controls work perfectly when you look at the display and ignore the fact that there is no sound. The preset buttons still have the same radio stations, all of the electronic adjustments work (volume, fader, balance, bass/treble), on/off works with no issues, etc. I removed some of the wire clusters in the back of the radio and reattached them. I thought one of those might be loose or have a bad connection. But doing that didn't make any difference (that I could tell). Can anyone offer any advice or suggestions on how to get sound? Is there a separate fuse for the speakers? Thanks in advance. b-man
  7. Where else but Amazon... http://www.renntech.org/forums/spoffers/amazon/ Thanks. I just ordered a set. The shipping ($10-$11) was more than the product cost!?!? b-man
  8. OK, I'm having a similar problem and found this message thread. Hopefully someone can help me. Where can I get the radio removal tool? My radio is a stock CR-220 that came with my 2002 911. I had a dead battery recently. I had some issues trying to get my car started. I eventually got everything fixed, and now my radio doesn't work. It doesn't even turn on. I think it may be a fuse behind the radio. So I'd like to remove the radio and check it. I also had my owners manual (and radio instruction manual) stolen. But I'll deal with that later. I do have my radio security code. Thank you for any assistance you can provide. b-man
  9. I have the Fabspeed X-pipe cats on my car (and 02 C2). Like you, my factory cats went bad and I thought the price Porsche wanted for new ones was ridiculous. I *was* skeptical of the horsepower claims too. But after putting them on, I can believe 25 hp. But my opinion is just going by the seat of my pants. Also, because my old cats were bad, there may have been some exhaust flow restrictions in them (e.g., the internal honeycomb shifting around and restricting flow). So the comparison is not scientific at all (i.e, new factory versus new Fabspeed). But again, there is a very noticeable difference in power. The product is very high quality. I have had them for a while, and run my car all year (in all types of weather). But I don't track it, I do run it fairly hard on the street. I have had no issues with the new cats. I have had no fault codes. There is a slight difference in sound. The Fabpeeds sound better. But most people would not notice. I notice the difference mostly at very low rpms. The bottom line is I am very happy with the purchase and would buy them again in a heartbeat. Let me know if you have any questions. b-man
  10. 33 (a new 911) Now I look back and think I was pretty young at the time! b-man
  11. Also, if you don't drive it very far or very long, the oil doesn't heat up fully. So when you turn off the engine, the oil takes longer to drain down into the oil pan (because it's thicker). b-man
  12. I'm sorry to hear that Rustman. IPD should know better when they designed/made the throttle body . . . b-man
  13. How do the Hawk PC and EBC Red Stuff compare to the OEM pads regarding performance (cold, hot, street. track, etc.)? I've been very happy with the OEM pads, but would also like to have less dust. Thanks. b-man
  14. See the following thread. You may need to be registered to see the helpful diagram in the second message post: http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/996-...-need-help.html I've removed mine. If I remember correctly, one piece of information in that post is incorrect. You don't use a torx driver/bit. It's an 8mm triple square as mentioned in the first post here: http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/996-...ed-to-know.html b-man
