  1. I checked all fuses in the left and right panel. But will check again. The fuse on the back of which unit? From what I have read here, this is a fiberoptic issue - http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/pors...-dont-work.html
  2. I have the same issue. 2005 Cayenne S. Radio does not even turn on now.
  3. I have a 2004 Cayenne S with 92000 miles. I am selling it to get a lower mileage one. I had all the major issues with the 04 and replaced them all. Is the 05 much better? http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.jsp?ct=u...;standard=false
  4. Wife says she thinks she has a right rear flat tire. When ever she accelerates the car sounds like the wheel is square or running over rumble strips. She has the wheel inspected and nothing. So I bring it down to the old Vivid Racing shop and put it on the lift. Probe around, smell the air, and grab the drive shaft. BAMMO. The center carrier bearing on the driveshaft has ripped apart from its rubber housing. I then hit google and do some research. Find some threads here, on Renntech.org, and basically see that another flaw of the 03 and 04 Cayenne is this drive shaft. Bad thing is the
  5. at that low RPM, the noise could come from a loose weld in the exhaust or tip or even like you said the cat. got a picture of the fluid? check around your tranny to see if anything is leaking.
  6. Keep the Pilot Cups for track only. PS2 are great for street and aggressive driving, but yes soft. If you want a harder tire that lasts longer, go with the Pirelli or Conti. If you want to drove in price point, check out the Nitto Invo or the Yokohama Advan Sport. All these are available in the 305/30/19 needed in the rear. Not sure what the price point is of the PSC's, but dedicated track rims are an investment while using expensive tires on the street is an expense, ie. throwing money out the window. I am sure you can find a set of used rims that would make perfect track wheels
  7. I have done a set of 997GT2 wheels on a 997TT. The problem is the 997GT2 is RWD, so the tire sizes front and rear dont have to be like the 997TT that would affect the center diff. The 997TT MUST use a 235/35/19 and 305/30/39 where the GT2 uses a 325/30/19 and a 235 up front I believe. These tires would cause premature wear to the cars diff. Don't the turbos have 8.5 x 19 and 11.5 x 19s on? I would double check to ensure fitment. They will work fine... and look great too!!
  8. We have done the RWD conversion in a 996TT. I think as I have seen others dyno the car this way, but not sure if you the PSM system will allow you to drive on it like this. All you have to do is remove the center driveshaft with diff and disconnect the halfshafts. Having driven a RWD 996TT, they are a blast and a handful!
  9. So you want to upgrade the look of your 996 Turbo. One of the best ways to do that is by adding a GT2 front bumper. There are many options from the real deal to the replica one. So we have put together some information on this upgrade including how to install the bumper and why this upgrade is beneficial. Installation: Tools - Flat Head to pop out clips, Phillips Head, Torx Set, and a buddy. Step 1 - The first thing you need to do is to remove the inner fender liner that connects to the bumper. There are a couple of clips to pop out and then a couple on the underside of the bumper. Once
  10. I just thought I would share this info and pictures of a proper corner balance alignment done on a Porsche 996TT. This car was done with the JIC Cross coilovers. Though the KW V3 or Bilstein PSS10 would be equivalent. You can get this amount of adjustment with the stock control arms, toe links, camber slots. Any questions, just ask :) More pics here - http://www.vividracing.com/forums/gallery/browseimages.php?c=273
  11. We just received our new 2 piece floating rotors for the factory Porsche 6 piston brakes that fit our 997 Turbo. There are many reasons why to upgrade to these rotors. Some influencing factors are the rotational weight savings of 3lbs per corner, the dissipation of heat under hard braking, and the floating design to give you improved braking and pad wear. Tools Needed Torque Wrench Socket Wrench 10mm Allen Socket Flat Head Screwdriver Philips Head Screwdriver Strap to Hold Caliper Step 1 - First you want to find a flat spot to jack up the first side of the car you plan on doi
  12. Hope you enjoy the pictures. I have an extensive mod list. Ask away!
  13. I just got a 2004 Cayenne S. The ! General Warning Light came on. I have no idea why? Any thoughts? Thanks Dan
