  1. Sorry, totally missed this post. I can look it up in my log book when I get home.
  2. It's buried pretty deep. Lots of stuff to bolt/unbolt. I'd say it's more time consuming than difficult. I replaced mine when I replaced the vacuum lines since I had easy access at the time.
  3. I have a used set of Bridgestone Blizzaks for 18" wheels I'd like to get rid of. Let me know if you want more details.
  4. I solved my codes by pretty much replacing all the SAI vacuum lines. Take a look at the thread here:
  5. I think it should if I remember correctly. My key no longer operates the top. Everything else on my key and top work, so I haven't even tried to troubleshoot it.
  6. The angle looking at changeover valve #2 is just right so you can't really see one of the elbows. Circled in Blue below: It's a little confusing ordering the parts since the diagram that Porsche uses shows the old style shut off valve from 1999 which has a bit different plumbing.
  7. I replaced everything seen in your pic: Except not the plenum or resonance flap actuator. Also, the dealer only gave me 1m of line, not 2m, so the 122mm bit is still original, but that's the easiest one to replace later. Also, I mis-counted the number of elbows needed, so the elbow to the one way check is original. Again easy to replace later. For anyone doing this in the future, you need 5 elbows, not 4. While I was in there, I replaced the starter. I also replaced a couple hose/line holders that I had broken previously when replacing the alternator last year (maybe 2 years ago).
  8. Good news, it's been 3 days since I replaced everything, and no CEL. It seems to start quicker, and hold a more steady idle. Even better, I passed emissions today! Thanks for the help Ahsai!
  9. If it changes with revs, I doubt it's the SAI pump. However, while we are on the subject of SAI, I have codes p0491, and p0492 that reoccur. These are secondary air injection bank 1 and bank 2. I'm thinking about replacing every hose + the reservoir. Looks like you can access all of that if you remove the intake plenums? Any other ideas? It's strange in that I only get the codes when it's above freezing. I've been able to clear the codes, and not have them come back until the temp reaches about 34º on a few different occasions, so I don't think it's a coincidence.
  10. I have an iphone. Maybe I'll look into the wireless adapter. I think my next step is to replace some components, as I'm thinking I have a vacuum leak. I've looked at your thread here:http://rennlist.com/forums/996-forum/849770-mkii-996-vacuum-line-routing-and-related-components.html which is quite helpful. My check valve does of some oil mist on it, so maybe it's gone bad, but that could be a coincidence. I'm having a bit of trouble finding some of the components in the Porsche catalog though. I've found this diagram which shows some of it: http://sonnenporscheoemparts.com/parts/2002/Por
  11. Yes, I notice it a lot on my way to work. I'll drive 20mi on the highway, than more often than not I'll get a red light at the end of my exit ramp and I'll hear it come on. Sometimes accompanied by a few seconds of a slightly lump idle. Driving home I usually get a few blocks of 30-40 mph after the highway before I hit a red light. I notice it less in this situation, compared to 20mi of 80mph immediately followed by a minute of 0 mph.
  12. I did another log tonight, and it looks more like how I would expect it to. That first one may have been a fluke. When I clear the codes they usually come back in less than a week. (if the ambient temperature is warm enough). I've never not noticed the SAI pump running when cold. I cleared the codes yesterday, and drive about 50mi every day. We'll see how long until they come back & I'll try to pay attention to if the pump is running or not when cold. Copy of 2015_05_26_21_17_28.pdf
  13. I really want to try and fix this problem now. I started the car, and recorded until the RPM dropped & the SAI shut off. I'm looking for opinions on what you see. To me, the O2 voltage ahead of cat bank 1 looks funky. Anyone agree or disagree? What should my next action be? Thanks! Copy of 2015_05_25_12_00_21.pdf
