to ED: OK, so it passed VISIBLE inspection (even with K&N CAI), but failed the running tests?? Yes, the tester wasn't concerned with the cai, the running test was the problem.
Hey Todd, I'll check into it and let you know what I find out. I see you're from Lenexa, I used to live in Overland Park. Do you use Imagine Auto locally?
Is it not passing the visible portion, but passes the rest of the tests or?? I took it to a local smog shop and they just said they couldn't get it to pass so they stopped testing. It's now at a Porsche indy shop getting checked out - hopefully they can work some magic and get it to pass.
I have a full cargraphic exhaust system on my car - which I love, but my car won't pass the CA smog requirement. I have the stock headers but not the stock cats or exhaust. Does anyone have stock cats and/or exhaust available? Help!!
every day replied to minny's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I love the so2a's - tried the ps2's and not a big fan, just didn't have the same feel as the s02a's.
every day replied to kristian's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Yep - been there, done that. Cap or tank.
Not sure what's underneath the panel, but here are pics of mine...
Part numbers are 996-351-980-00 front and 996-352-980-00 rear. They've been used for roughly 500 to 1000 miles. I found that I can run pagid yellows full time so I have no need for these. Price new was $232 (list of $288) will sell for $175 plus shipping.
every day replied to dsnow's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I'm a huge fan of Bridgestone SO2a tires for the street.
every day replied to montegoblue's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)On the 996 you can simply bridge the seat heating circuit, SOURCE side, into the street/parking/tail light circuit and have canadian style DRLs. The european 5 watt halogen in the headlamps operates on the same circuit. wwest - do you have more detailed instructions?
every day replied to typhon's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)How'd it turn out? Worth the money?
every day replied to tobster76's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)oem won't work because the air intake is in a different location - gt3 vs non-gt3. you have to go with an aftermarket decklid and wing.
every day replied to 1turb993s's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I'm considering a change as well and here's the text of an email I got from a shop I trust. My car's actually there right now getting some other work done... http://www.gmgracing.com/tuning.shtml In terms of exhaust here is what I recommend. Mufflers make very little power mostly sound ( 5-7bhp) Cargraphic $2300.00 High flow cats- cargraphic 200 cell obd2 compliant ( 15hp) Cargraphic $2600.00 Exhaust manifolds help the power band come on sooner and fall off later ( 5hp) GMG 1900.00 Cargraphic $2300.00
every day replied to waydeki's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)front spoiler/splitter with no rear wing = OK rear wing with no front spoiler/splitter = not OK The dealer's right.
every day replied to 714dre's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)GMG - ask for Fabryce or Vadeen. My cars there right now, ask them if it's done for me!! (Brian Vance) http://www.gmgracing.com/tuning.shtml
