  1. I agree with millerchris85. After all the work and money poured into my CTT it’s eh now and I’d have been better served tuning up my 996TT. If you really must have a sporty drive in a Cayenne then I suggest looking after a 958 GTS, Turbo or Turbo S and having someone tuned them to your liking. Be forewarned though you will wear through ancillaries (brakes, axles, tensioners, etc...) much faster depending on how much and how hard you drive
  2. I’m thinking battery, grounds, and if I’m not mistaken (Loren help me out) the vehicle electrical system controller will activate and deactivate controllers and consumers around the ring as demand and available power dictate for safe minimum safe operation. 30- seconds is enough for the system to check and detect a battery with a shorted cell. Cayennes do really strange things when power is not 100% adequate and stable.
  3. Sure. The different makes are hyperlinked to a group of actual sales brochures for the respective make model year. You can then click on your model and year to see what OEM options were actually available for your truck. You can also use the link below to get a Porsche Build Sheet for your truck. Simply enter your VIN# and voila! VIN Analytics VINANALYTICS.COM Generate the unique build sheet for your Porsche. Look up what options a Porsche was originally equipped with from the factory.
  4. Yes I don’t think that’s factory. I have a similar set up in my glove box that the PO has installed by an aftermarket shop along with an roof mounted DVD player. Not sure who makes it but it’s definitely not stock. Check out http://www.auto-brochures.com/makes/Porsche/Cayenne/Porsche_US Cayenne_Turbo_2006.pdf That set up is not an available option
  5. Wow! If the hat separated from the disc because those fasteners were missing or came loose I fear that rotor may be ruined as the rotational forces while the wheel is in motion may have ovaled-out the mounting holes. Good luck and keep us posted.
  6. My main issues were under the seat at the battery box in the engine compartment at the front the frame rails at the front and in the rear corners where water has collected. The connections were all dirty cruddy and corroded.
  7. Good old pull up and search and you’ll need to check the grounds on the chassis rails up front and rear floor too under the rear seat and spare tire
  8. I’ve had the same issue and Loren was right - bad grounds all over the place and a battery with a couple of weak cells. I replaced the battery cleaned and redressed the grounds and 99% of my issues went away.
  9. Hi I had a custom flash done after an engine rebuild and adding a bunch of bolt on stuff. Was it worth it? For the first few weeks yes but then it quickly became something I really could have done without . The cost of my tune was far less than the $1400.00 you quoted. I’m running a slightly overbore CTT with stock turbos larger all aluminum AKG intercoolers like on the Turbo S IPD intake plenum secondary cat delete with custom 3” cat back exhaust and stock tips (sleeper effect) Agency Power billet diverter valves and a 3” cold air intake system. The throttle
  10. A scan with a Porsche dedicated tool like Durametric or PIWIS should be able to identify the culprit straight away A simple visual check may help as well, i.e., when you come out to the truck which end and side seems lower than the rest?
