Hey guys, I am aware of the list that exists but I am looking specifically for 60-130 times for stock 996 turbo and flash only 996 turbo. Please post up your actual times. Thanks!!
I went to the drag strip and am trying to figure out why my car ran the same times as it did the last time I went to the track even though the temperature was 61 degrees with low humidity rather than 103 degrees with 100% humidity like the first time I went. The boost looks to be a constant 1bar but I read that even with a boost leak that can rob you of big power you may still see normal peak boost because the computer is demanding it. So basically the Turbos are working harder to get it? I have the stock diverter valves with a softronic tune so that is why I am thinking maybe the DVs are not up to the task? They are not honking or anything. I do hear a loud wing gushing noise at wide open throttle but I just figured that it was the normal sound of the turbos or something. The 2 other guys who went to the dragstrip with me both times were running 0.7 seconds faster with 6mph more when compared to the first super hot day which is to be expected. So I guess my question is can you actually have a boost leak that will cost you about 100hp and still see normal peak boost? Thanks, Jason
I read that when tilting the motor by removing the motor mounts for a clutch job that the intake hose on the turbos may come off which would cause this to happen. I will check that and report back.
I replaced the clutch and everything feels great. However I noticed I now have a "blow-off" noise when I lift the throttle in 1st and 2nd gear. Only happens when I am driving easy (but enough to build boost) and then when I let off the gas and clutch in I hear the blow off sound. It is not crazy loud but is there for sure. It also seems to be a little delayed. I drove cars before with a blow off valve that vents to atmosphere and this is basically that only not as instant and not as loud. Any thoughts?PS, the car holds a constant 1bar of boost at wide open throttle.
Thanks! I will take a closer look with the scope camera. Would that explain the clanking? Would the release bearing spin if not on the fork? I would be very surprised if it was totally off. I thought maybe the two fingers on the release bearing were not at 3 and 9.
Sorry for the long read but I really need help. OK I have been working on cars all my life and didn't even think twice about doing my own clutch job. Well everything that could have went wrong went wrong. Nothing major (until the end), just things that made the job take a lot longer than it should. This is a CM stage 3 clutch using the stock flywheel. So fast forward to start up after the tranny is back in. I go to start the car and the clutch pedal would not go down at all. I suspected the slave did not go into the "dimple" in the fork. Got a "snake camera" and peeped into the peep hole above the starter and sure enough the rod was not in the dimple. So I take out and re-install the slave and confirm it is positioned correctly. I go in the car and press the clutch. The clutch goes down easy but stuck to the floor. I thought maybe there was no pressure in the system and will start it do build the pressure. I start the car and there was a very faint rattle for the first 3 seconds and then a loud rattle/clanking so I shut the car off as quickly as I could. Now when I press the clutch down it only goes down half way (it does pop back up when I let go of the clutch though). Another thing I thought I would mention is the even with the clutch not pressed in I can shift the gear lever into any gear easily. The only thing I can think of is maybe the two contact points on the fork are not on the correct spot on the release bearing (I.E. the release bearing twisted while the fork is in the right spot)? I couldn't really snake the camera to get a look visually. But why the hell would it have make that noise? I am so frustrated after working so many hours on this thing. And now I feel really bad for it taking up my friends hoist for so long. Thank you guys very much for any suggestions!!!!!!!!
Well it looks like it is #6. The old owner modified the **** hose so it didnt look like the single "y" hose.
Anyone? Not even the local dealer was able to figure out the part number. :(
