"She wasn't my style.... She smelt of nothing more than common sense!"
SoSoomi_47979 replied to SoSoomi_47979's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)That was my thought as well.... however there must be a technique using solvents (green) and low pressure water.... I have yet to see a dirty engine bay on any car for sale, at least at a reputable dealer. I would be seriously careful about using any form of high pressure wash on a modern engine bay. Cars today, P included, have a ton of electronics and other crap that the cars in the old days didn't. Getting that stuff internally wet will spell disaster. In the old days if you got the distributor wet all you had to do was blow it out with some compressed air and on your way. Not so
I always think that a vehicle, whether it be a car, boat or motorcycle, runs better with a clean engine... agree or not... they certainly look better. In the old days it didn't seem so hard to find a guy with a steam cleaning service that would give the engine compartment a good once over but with the newer engines and all the electrical components I am a little wary. Has anyone cleaned their 996 engine bay and have any recommendations to products, techniques, or do's and don'ts? Cheers....

SoSoomi_47979 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have read many threads on this topic but would like some clarification if anyone cares to comment. I thank you in advance for your input. Simply put, I would like to disable the PSE so it is on the open or loud setting all of the time regardless of speed or RPMs. 02 C4S, 6 speed, coupe, PSE without the dash mounted switch and according to a VIN search the PSE was a Factory option. As I understand it one may remove a relay that is in position 23 or disconnect an orange plug (speedo input) in the engine compartment (RHS). I have attached pictures of my engine bay in an attempt to identify
Greetings... I am asking this for a Boxster friend... 99 Boxster, 90,000 miles, tiptronic. If driving with a light foot tranny runs thru the gears as normal.... put your foot into it and it upshifts normally to 3rd and then refuses to shift further.... tap the shifter to M and using the paddle buttons and the tranny shifts as normal. Tap the shifter back and the tranny downshifts as normal. One other detail.... the car was put off the road and there was some rim, tire, radiator and suspension damage... all repaired.... prior to the offroad experience the tranny shifted normally (I am told)
No friends... fewer and fewer enemies...
Well I never had that issue....and I sold them to another fella on 6speedonline and we snapped them into his 99 996 and everything worked.... My advice is to buy them with a caveat that they plug and play....
I took a set of headlights from a 03 996 and plugged them straight into a 99 996.... plug and play
After not too much thought and a lot of looking I decided to add a Wing and Spoiler.... I decided that performance upgrades were expensive... somewhat dubious as to the actual performance increases but I did know what I liked when I saw it... Boats, cars and women.... if I don't like the lines.... I don't go there... yes.. I know... highly subjective... so if you don't like what I did... tuff... you can't mess with my boat or GF either so keep it to yerself... hahaha... But I digress...... Kudos to Misha for the wing.... one of the highlights was driving to LA to meet him... good guy... wo
I did that and it was plug n play.... no harness.... no splicing... I was told I needed a harness but nope..... The headlights were from a 03 and went into my 99 C2
