  1. Thanks for the help, can you recomend a 5Bar FPR? Loren: I know that is a big difference in price, could it be due to that they take the Turbos directly from Borg Warner? This is the company that sell them and on the homepage they show the item as sold out even though they sell it on ebay, they have good bidding history on ebay so I dont think that the try to scam. http://www.qualityimportparts.com/epcvsoap...lityimportparts Did you end up buying them? They are still selling the same package and I have a 2004 tt, if you did buy them have you installed them and are they working normal? what company did you go with for the ECU Flash? Any help is appreciated Hello! I bought theese turbos but asked them to rebuild them to K24/26 and after this I went to 9ff and they tuned my car and added all other needed things like air filter, 5 bar frp, recalibrated WP for 1.2 bar and other goodies, I have 590hp now and it feels like a total differant car to drive, I have only driven 2000km or so after the tuning since it is winter here now but I can gladly say that I would buy those Turbos again :) They where original Borg Warner Turbos for a great price :)
  2. If you have lowered the car lately this can also reduce the handling, if you set the PSS9 towards gt2 height the pss9 will bottom out to early which give lousy handling. Ive heard 4 front and 3 rear as good setup.
  3. Hello! I have a 5Bar regulator now and almost 600hp with K26 turbos, the thing is that since a valve in my fuelpump seems broken so I need a new one I can as well use a GT2 pump if that can handle even more hp then the TT(If I do more tuning in the future) ;). But the main question is if it will work to use that pump at all in a TT? I see that you have a lighter Fly wheel, I am also thinking about buying one, did you notice any big changes when you changed it or did you change it at the same time as you did the other tuning? Can you recomend a good place to buy a Fly Wheel from?
  4. Hello! Is it possible to use a 996 GT2 Fuelpump on a 996 TT and will the GT2 fuel pump be able to keep a higher flow then the TTs pump? (Be able to handle more hp)
  5. Hello! I got help from 9ff to fix my problem, since my car also have been hard to start when it has been warm they adviced me that there is a pressure holding valve in the fuel tank and when that holding valve cant hold the pressure in the fuel line to the engine the fuel will vaporise from the heat when the engine is warm. After I fixed this problem the engine started immediatly. Im a really happy camper now :) //Jonas
  6. Hello! a few hours ago I stopped my car for 10 minutes, after that I tried to start it but it refuses to start at all. I bought some start gas and let a friend hold it against the airfilter, then it started immediatly and also died as soon as we removed the start gas. I think it depends on that the car dont get any gas but I dont understand why, I have looked at the fuse for fuel pump and also for ignition/fuel and both are ok. Could it be the immobilizer that dont work properly to the key or is the immobilizer going through ignition or will it turn off fuel pump and leave ignition on? //Jonas
  7. My car have always started immediately but now it always take 3-4 tries before it starts properly, when the car is cold it start at once but as soon as the car is warm and I turn it of and start it between 10mins-2h afterwards when the car is still quite hot it is reaqlly hard to start. it is almost the same procedure everytime, first try it doenst start at all, second time it starts up and run close to 1000rpm for 1/4sec and then dies and 3rd time it runs up toward 1200RPM and then goes down to 750-800RPM after 1sec or so and is ready to drive away. (it always run great as soon as it started up properly) I looked a little at OBD values and Lambda and Maf values seems fine Cat = 1.000-1.001 on both side, they are very similar. (the datafields on the bottom of page) MAF: 5mg/s on Idling Longtime fueltrim 1_3: 3.9 Longtime fueltrim 2_4: 1.6 And I see that the shorttime is almost as much negative on 2_4 side that it is positive on 1_3 side so it differs quite alot (values of +4.7 and -4.7 at idle) Could this have anything to do with the problem to start the car? I dont have any fault codes except for P0442 wich is microleak from tank or something like that which I also had beore the car started to be hard to start. If anyone have had a similar problem or have an idea of how to fix it, please dont hesitate to answer :)
  8. Hello! I had a car that was totaly dead when I tried to start it sometimes but if I moved the car a few inches and had gear in so it moved the engine a little the car started, Im not sure why it was like this but after I changed start engine the problem dissapeared. Its an easy test, just push the car a little forward and change to 1st gear and after that try to start it.
  9. Cant it be the wastegate that needs to have a harder spring or something? Think that it is opening around or just below 1 bar in original aperance? Edit: To test this you can open the wastegate manually with a plyer and see howe the "arm" is moving, and then put something in the way for the "arm" and take the car for a full boost run and then see if the "arm" have moved the thing that you added in the way and that way know that the wastegate have been opened. :) My bet would be on the wastegate Jonas
  10. Ben! Then you might have had to little fuel one of the times wich caused the error? I think I need to calibrate the sensor at Porsche but ill try to fill it up one more time and disconnect the battery for 15 minutes or so :) Jonas
  11. Hello Loren! THanks alot for the help, I think I tried to disconnect and connect the battery with full tank afterwards but Im not sure, I try it again and come back with info :)
  12. I have this exact same problem. When I fill the tank it says 3/4 full and when the light comes on I have +20L left. This problem just came one day after I connected/disconnected my battery. Could it have been cause I had to little gas in the tank during my disconnection so it couldnt calibrate afterwards? Regards Jonas
  13. I had this exact problem after the winter, it was the wastegate down on the turbo that was a little harsh, after I put a little lubricant on it and forced the arm forwards and backwards a few times it started to go smoth and I saw 0.8 on the bar meter again :) I hope you have this same fault. GL :)

  15. Hello! I am on my way to get towards 600 HP and can probbably get software for a decent price that will fit a 996 with KKK 24 turbos. will the Turbos from the URL work with my car, they are quite a bit cheaper then buying KKK24 from Porsche but will they work for sure? I hope they do cause then it might be possible to reach 600HP without spending above 10 000US. I will also buy: Sachs Stage 2 Clutch with LWFW front brakes with 6 piston from Brembo Muffler that will give me more flow (I have already modified my own muffler but concider race cats also) Bilstein PSS9 Please help me with other things that I need to upgrade to get my car to work without failure even though I jump up 150-200hp. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Porsche-996...emZ200009845154
