  1. does anyone have a picture of the two ways it installs..
  2. i did it... pain the ***... but worth it in the end :) you need to get air vent, a couple brackets on the inside, you also need to mess with the vent that is IN the dash... kind of a pain.. talk to the guys at SUnset Porsche in Portland. they got me all squared away
  3. clean out the MAF, and run some good gas if not 101 octane if you can. and get on the car more often. I see you said you don't drive it hard, I had a good freind that was a service advisor at Porsche. People would come in all the time saying their car is not running good and sputtering, it was due to driving the car like a grandma ;) just flog it more often and drive for what it was built for. Not all the time, just a little bit.
  4. an old trick that would work on some units is to use a time card or something equivalent and slide top and bottom of the cartridge. it releases the pin holding it in. Give it a try
  5. well that doesn't look like a whole lot of fun to replace :( time to get my hands dirty!!
  6. Patrick, thanks for clearing that up for me :) do you have any pix of the camshaft actuator?? looks like i might have to replace that. can anyone help?
  7. IS it more of a whining noise... or just road noise?
  8. YOu could try to bring it up through the engine compartment. In the non-e-gas cars the throttle cable runs through the firewall. You should find an open spot there :) YOu will have to take out the side panels on the driver side to get to that though..
  9. call Jeff at Sunset.. those guys are awesome at wanting to help you and make sure you have the right parts. They always go above and beyond!
  10. Yes, you do have the wrong part. The cam position sensor is on the head itself (you are pointing at the valve cover), on top, almost directly above the part you are looking at. I'll try to dig up a picture when I get home this evening. Manwhile, anone else who wants to chime in (1999Porsche911) please feel free. So is that part with the wire coming out of it the Cam actuator? I replaced the gasket around it (even though it still leaks a little, that picture was taken before I replaced the part) Loren... input??? :drive:
  11. The findza unit also has NINE BOLTS (02+ cars only).. take a look at the AASCO unit. I know a couple other guys are using that unit, and that is what I am going to use I think. Available through Vivid is the only place I found that carries it.
  12. Loren, I did order the purge vavle, SUnset said they sell quite a few of them.. I am going to replace the actuator becuase the car is starting to act like the Variocam is not really kicking in... is that an easy process?? :drive:
  13. No, Bank 1 is on the driver's side, at the front of the engine, the end nearest the transmission. I have only seen it with the engine out of the car. If you have access to it, the only thing I can think of to mention is don't re-use the O-ring. I really don't think you can get at it with the engine in the car, though. getting to the driver side one is easy! take out the rear fender liner and it is right there! Now the passenger side one is a PAIN! even the o-ring is a pain to get at!! :cursing: Wow. How different is your car than mine? I have no frnder liner back there, just shee
  14. i would replace the pads with something from PAGID ;) made a huge difference on my car
