  1. The specifications referenced at this link and this link worked very well for me on my 996GT3, I was running that setup with Hoosier R6s. Front axle: Camber: -2.5º Max camber difference, left/right: 5' Toe total: +5' Toe difference at 20° lock: -1°20' +/- 30' Caster: 8° +/- 30' Max caster difference, left/right: 30' Front height: 115mm Swaybar 1 from hard Rear axle: Toe total: 35' +/- 2' Max toe difference, left/right: 5' Camber: -2.3° +/- 5' Max camber difference, left/right: 10' Rear height: 128mm Swaybar 1 from hard Hi, I just got an alignment with th
  2. Thanks wvicary - that's what I am gonna do until the pads are worn down B)
  3. Hi, I just changed the brake pads myself on the rear and had a problem with the expanding springs which were about 10 mm too long to fit the new pads (I ordered EBC for 2005-2008, but I guess it should have been for 2004-2005). Anyways this spring broke trying to bend it. My question is what the purpose is of these springs and if I can drive without them? The two expanding springs are seen on the left: Best regards Knudsen
  4. Yep By the way it's a funny box - I saw in another forum a question about a sponge in the box, at the same place as the draining hole. My box did not have that, but as far I can see there are holes for it. Maybe the sponge is for sucking up the monsoon...... ;)
  5. Well it might be, but at the lowest point of the box, there is a hole which i guess is a draining hole. The filter is placed about 1/2 inch higher than that......
  6. Hi, I am changing the air filter to a BMC and doing the cold air intake thing at the same time. What I have discovered is this small filter in the bottom of the filter box (see picture) and I am wondering what the purpose of it is? And also it might be small, but I guess not to small to not suck in hot air from the engine compartment? Best regards Mike
  7. Thanks for the answers guys :thumbup: To Maurice: Thanks for opening up my mind about the phenomenon "IMS" To Mera: Sad story about your car - but half the cost as my replacement ;) It is an 2005 Carrera S so I guess the new engine will not have the IMS problem (As far as I can see in the threads - 2006 and later should be OK) To RFM: Hopefully I should not worry about that since the replaced engine seems to be brand new. To Paul: Thanks for the info about the pumps/loose oil cap Knud
  8. Knud: From your description, "... bearing in the lowest part of the car between the engine and the gearbox...", it sounds as though the Porsche dealer may have been referring to the infamous IMS (Intermediate Shaft Bearing). If that is the case, your engine suffered the fate of some M96 engines. When the IMS bearing and its support bolt and flange fail, there will typically be lots of metal debris in the oil, which then carries it to the internals of the engine. Call back the dealer and ask them if that is what they were referring to. Also, if it was a rebuild of your own failed engin
  9. Hi. I have just had the unpleasent experience of an engine having to be replaced on my Carrera S. After being driving with good acc/dec and quite fast cornering, the engine started to sound very suspicious and I stopped after 100 meters. What I noticed was that the oil filler cap was loose and it looked like a small amount of oil had been spilled. When I checked the oil level at the on board computer, it showed OK but in the lower end of the scale. Nevertheless I got the car pulled away to Porsche who concluded, that a bearing in the lowest part of the car between the engine and the ge
