  1. yep, mine is a first gen Cayenne Turbo with the 4.5 TT V8 I'm really not sure why the dyno numbers were as low as they were (three similar runs after letting the vehicle cool down with the hood up for 30min pre dyno testing). my dyno operator thought that it would have more in it too as the big piggy seemed to be able to put out more power, but we couldn't get it to at the time. I don't think that I have cracked coils as we didn't detect anything like that at the time, but I do have a fresh set of pencils ready to go in just in case. I guess that the best test to highlight any issues wou
  2. Thanks for the advice :) I ran on a proper 4WD dyno (Mainline) that is popular with the AWD crowd (WRXs, Skyline GTRs). It easily accommodated my Cayenne's wheelbase and we turned PSM off. I was a little disappointed with the results (228kw / 306HP at the wheels) as we thought that it would make a lot more as it is not stock, hence my question re locking the diffs or other fancy tricks. I have found that Mainline dynos used here are fairly conservative compared to the Dyno Dynamics ones (I don't believe that we have Mustang Dynos in Australia) but the Mainlines are consistent across the
  3. Does anyone have any specific advice or a procedure for putting the Cayenne on a four wheel AWD rolling dyno? eg. PSM traction control, locked diffs, Low Range / High Range / on-road off-road, suspension settings, ride height, ramp rates, etc. Also does anyone have any good dyno readouts for before and after mods? Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo charts would be good to see as I haven't found many on the various forums. Everyone promises to upload after their mods but never do... I'm looking for comparative data from Mustang / Mainline / DynoDynamics rolling dynos as opposed to hub Dynapak dy
  4. Does anyone have any recent before and after real world dyno readings for these ECU tunes? Also is there any specific advice or procedure for putting a Cayenne on an AWD rolling dyno? (Mustang / DynoDynamics / Mainline)
  5. When my coolant pipes let go, I replaced them myself. Fairly easy process. A week later I had the dreaded tranny leak. I took my CS to my indy mechanic. He charged me $1300 to replace the torque converter seal. There were no special tools required. They dropped the tranny and replaced the seal. I have seen other mechanics drop the engine/tranny unit at the same time to remove the tranny and fix it that way. From what I can see in the service manual (section 37 35 19) and having just tried to remove the trans in the workshop, it looks like there are a number of special tools needed
  6. this is probably a month too late for you, but I think that the part numbers are: insert tool 96870 centering pin 96890 fixing pin 95950 or 95951 (9595/1 or 00072195951) 00072195951 = trans align tool It would be good to know how you went with your torque converter seal replacement. Loren - are items in your picture some of the special tools referred to in the 37 35 19 service manual?
  7. ^ Australia is the 53rd state so maybe I could join the class action? :lol: Answering my own question: from what I have figured out so far, removing the torque converter bolts to drop the transmission without removing the trans + engine requires Porsche "special tool" 96870 and special bit 96880 to get the necessary leverage in the confined space around the Tiptronic. I think this may have been referred to in pakimunda101's thread here: and was described as a half moon ratcheting wrench on another forum. I could drop the transmission and engine together to better access the torque conv
  8. hello from Down Under! Sorry for the newb first post, but I'm looking to replace the torque converter (radial shaft) seal in my 04 CTT at an independent mechanic workshop and am wondering if both the engine and tiptronic transmission have to come out for this job? I've just had a look at the service manual section (37 35 19) about removing the transmission and it appears that the transmission can be removed independently of the engine. Are there any neat / quicker ways to remove the transmission housing to change the leaking trans seal? Thanks in advance for any transmission hints. Ch
