  1. I am considering changing out the Bose Nav double din system in my 2004 996TT with the PCCM+ system. What I find anoying is that the PCCM+ system does NAV but its an additional $150 for the SD card.. Does anyone gotten the SD card yet?
  2. I just noticed that you don't mention the 996 Diagnostic Manual. It is actually an electronics manual. Do you have it? Its over 1600 pages. Ive attached the Table of Contents here for "education purposes" 911 Carrera(996) Diagnosis.pdf
  3. Well Yes I recoded the rear camera but now it needs to be calibrated and it needs a couple special tools to work along with the PIWIS 3. It looks like it needs the Spacing laser WE 1369 ( or VAS 6350/2A ) and Target Calibration Unit WE 1368 ( or VAS 6350 ) for another $3900 at Porsche retail suggested pricing.
  4. A friend asked me about replacing and activating a new backup camera in his 2013 991. The car already had a backup camera but it stopped working and he asked me because he knows I have a PIWIS 3. I think I need to access the PCM but does anyone know more specifically how to activate/code a replaced camera? and can it be done with a PIWIS 3 or does it require some other device?
  5. I'm having intermittent screen problem with the screen on my original na radio cd head unit. The screen is is grey with a couple lines but every now and then the proper screen pops up. All the features work. Is there a reasonable repair or replacement or is it time to replace head or entire system?
  6. Its always better to email direct 

  7. Why should it have stayed without a hardtop? I live in Miami and am thinking of getting a hard top for my 04 996 TT to use from May thru mid October when it's to hot to put the top down. Wouldnt the hard top keep more heat out of the car in the summer? What are the drawbacks besides a little extra weight? Wouldnt it also stiffen the car for track days?
  8. For information or assistance its always best to email me direct.

  9. It wasnt done by reading the DMEs. Originally he got the PST2 software and worked from there.
  10. On Durametric website they dont show support for Porsche models after 2015 but they now diagnose BMW including more recent models.
  11. Interesting. looks like Duran ( of durametric) has given uip on current Porsche diagnostics.
  12. Agreed. However once I find that cable will a PIWIS, PIWIS 2, or PIWIS 3 access and perform all rhebfuncti ok ns in a 996 997 Cup Car?
  13. I'm looking for the adapter cable for the 996 and 997 cup car. Does anyone have one or where to order one?
  14. Ladt week I was asked to assist with a PPI on a 2019 991.2 GT3 RS since I have a PIWIS 3. As part of the electronic check they requested to perform an oil level check. The PIWIS3 had checked everything else fine including a full VAL ( 111 pages) report. However when we tried to run the oil level check with the PIWIS it gave error message as shown in attachment . The car performed it's own oil level check fine. The 2 days later the same PIWIS3 ran the same check on a 991.2 fine but when plugged into a 991.2 GT2 RS it failed again but this time the message screen in the car turned red and
  15. Hi There. I am after porsche 9pa service / workshop manuals. Any chance you could help please.
