Loren so as per gert the difference between the 2 is that the x73 mount allows little more -Ve camber, not sure by how much and how this will effect my alignment? he mentioned, if he talks to porsche they will ask him to return it since they dont make the kit any more, so its up to me i f i want to return it, not sure what to do at this point ..
thanks Loren for your prompt response , I just got a response from gert, and he said he does not why the part # is different, he begin to say we do not assemble it, this kit comes from porsche, hmm so what to do now?
Loren Hi, I just got probably the last kit from Gert/carneval x73 kit for my 996 turbo, every think checked out but for whatever reason , I decided to cross reference all the parts installed. the part # on the upper mount shows as 996 343 015 04 and 996 343 016 04 respectively, which is for the standard suspension as per the PET, I noticed the # on the rubber part of the mount. It should be for x73''' 996 343 980 15 and 996 343 980 16 as per the PET so the question? is this a problem, whats the difference between the mounts, is the PET incorrect or porsche screwed up? the shocks are already installed as a kit. I want to be 100 % before I install it thanks Ronnie
thanks so can this be fixed or do i have to put a new one? You will need to see if the hose and/or clamp are leaking or if you have a cracked nozzle. loren i noticed it was dripping from the bottom of the nozzle after removing the headlights, cant pinpoint exactly, is is normal for them to crack ? i think that could be my problem because i do not see any leak from the hose itself, i guess i have to remove the bumper now :(
so i tested my head light washer system after a very long time and it started leaking from the bottom some where from the right side , I traced it down to right nozzle (i think) i removed the R head light and noticed thru a small opening that bottom of the R nozzle was dripping fluid (cant tell from where) the hose connected to the nozzle seems to be fine so iam not sure where it is leaking from the bottom of the nozzle, i am assuming a new nozzle, so do i need to remove the bumper to get to the nozzle, dosent seem like any other way, some 997 guys have accessed it via fog light , but for a turbo fog light assembly is different . any suggestion as to is it my nozzle and or if i need to remove my front bumper. P.S I also read some where there the nozzle need adjusting as part of maintainence , not sure what that is thanks
i have a new moll kamina battery which shipped dry, two questions , do i fill it with acid only or mix it with water, and can i use any battery acid like from autozone or is there a specificacid i need to buy for this battery , ps i posted this in the 997/2 forum by mistake
thanks guys, so here is the new scoop, i loaded a newer version of durametrics, it now reads the rear, but takes a long time, it now shows left tail light code and and unknown dtc code, i am assuming that is the right tail light, as i had started the car with tail lights disconnected, i tried erasing the codes , but fail to initialize, so basically now i can read the rear but not clear the codes . hmm. i will try applying power to pc
i have a 2007 997 turbo, about year ago after installing the suspension, i checked with durametric and i was getting a rear module error , not sure what it is Rear Selected About to get fault codes moduleType = Rear9x7 DTC Count = 1 Fault Number:49448 Description:Communication PAS (comfort) Repair Infomation:control modue ------------------------------------------------ after resetting i get this it failed to initialize then it was fine ------------------------------------------------------- moduleType = Rear9x7 DTC Count = 1 Fault Number:0 Description:Module Failed To Initialize Repair Infomation:Check the status in the lower left corner of the screen.

Rear Selected About to get fault codes moduleType = Rear9x7 ----------------------------------------------------------- today i reset the ecu by disconnecting the battery and the rear module consistently fails to initialize, questions --what was the first error with rear and pas communications , and why is it not initializing now at all. i just intstalled a new exhaust, there are no other errors (only from the batt disconnect) moduleType = Rear9x7 DTC Count = 1 Fault Number:0 Description:Module Failed To Initialize Repair Infomation:Check the status in the lower left corner of the screen.

thanks for the reply loren , i thought about that, but then i have to run a wire from the front all the way to the back, i was hoping to pick something up in the engine bay. i could not find the starter becuase i was thinking of picking it ip from there. any ideas where it is. thanks
i am trying to find a constant 12 v supply in the engine bay when the car is running for my exhaust ecu. does any body know where i can find constant 12 volts. i cant even begin to start. i am sure i can find something but it could be switched.
one more question, how can you tell it is a motorsport # for the gt2 and do you think they will be stiffer then gt2 and the turbo? how do i find this out, considering they will fit. thanks ronnie
so i ordered couple gt2 mounts for my 997 tt, they should work because all the surrounding hardware is the same for gt2 and turbo. we will see will keep you posted
loren would yo say the gt3 mounts are the same as 997 tt, or are they stiffer/different? i am thinking os swapping it out All different. GT3 (and GT3 RS) uses 980.375.351.02 997TT uses 997.375.049.08 (coupe) or 997.375.049.05 (cab) GT2 uses 997.375.049.91 If they fit (and I do not know for sure) I would use the GT2 mounts as they are Porsche MotorSport parts ($303 each vs. $180 for standard) -- unless of course if you have option I140 - Dynamic Engine Mounts (PADM) thanks loren, the gt2 part you are reffering is that a 997 gt2 part, and is it liquid filled ? and what are your thoughts of the 993 rs mounts on a 997.1 turbo, i see few people installing that any feed back would be appreciated ronnie
