  1. Yeah bumper comes off and also intercoolers before I started I took off the wheels as well
  2. You do not have to move the turbos or lower the engine I did it and while it was a challenge it was very very doable if you guys are interested in maintaining your car correctly you have to be aware of the time limits spark plugs are four years or 30,000 miles So you have five years on your spark plugs and you’re not doing your car any favors
  3. hey Joe, how are you?? If your stock mounts are not toen and look good you can reuse them. I bought 2 new non x73 mounts for the pss10`s and they worked great. I did not see any difference in appearance between my old x73 mounts and these. The cost was about $150 each. My car is lowered to the x73 specs and all is well. Look at it this way: there are thousands of PSS9`s and 10 kits that lower to x73 and they all use the stock mounts, some are even lowered more than that!!! just saying........Mike
  4. If this mechanic suggested Pulstar plugs for your Turbo, then you need to get a NEW mechanic!! Who knows what he will F#@% up next.
  5. Hey no problema 2fast. I found out that you have to remove the exhaust then the engine carrier. Not a big deal, but a little time consuming. Mike
  6. I`m not sure what you mean. You have to take the bolt out to remove the pulley. How did you leave the bolt in AND replace the pulley?? Am I missing something? thanks Mike
  7. On my 01 Turbo the lower tension pulley is making a racket and I will be replacing it. The problem is the bolt hits the engine carrier and I cannoy pull the bolt out all the way. My options are to remove muffler and then the carrier or remove the gerator bracket which is a pain in the arss. Has anyone done this yet??
  8. How`s it going Loren. Can you do me a favor? I have a tsb#4897 and when I go to page 48 97 19 I cannot access it. This is R&R of this pump but can`t find it in my manual. It may be a suppliment. Could you please post this up for us? Thanks Mike
  9. I have an 01 turbo with the stock moveable wing and need to buy a tap for the thread inserts that attach to the hydrolic rams. I know you need a 14mm allen socket to remove these but I need the dimensions of the bore and thread pitch as I am machining an extension piece to raise up 1 inch for an aftermarket spoiler. I know it is close to 21 or 22 mm but because I have to order this tap I need to know for sure. Loren can you perform another miracle?? thanks Mike
  10. Hey Loren, I can`t get this DIY to come up. I found the link but it won`t load HELP!!!!!!!!! thanks Mike
  11. It`s your DV`s...they go bad.....change them for evo`s or Baily`s. The dealers for some reason have a tough time diagnosing the problem. EVERY stock DV will fail .....so change em NOW
  12. Hi Loren. What`s up with changing the bottle. I know I have to remove the boost hose, but what else? I can`t find the DIY on the 996 car. Is the procedure different for the turbo?? thanks Mike
  13. The Turbo will be night and day difference from your C4. A little more rear tire wear and a 4 hour spark plug change, but the turbo will be more reliable than your RMS timebomb. Different case. serious power. I don`t mean to be arrogant but I devide the Porsche family into T urbo and non-turbo. All Porsche`s overall victories at Lemans were with turbo cars. The only other thing that come`s close or some say exceeds, is a GT3 Go for it, you won`t be sorry
