  1. I have an 02 996tt with about 49k miles. I purchased it about a year or so back and have no idea when the plugs were changed and assume the coils are original. I will be purchasing a set of coils made by Bosch (0986221016 / 99760210400) I found a deal for $208 shipped (anyone know a better price?). In regards to the plugs I am getting conflicting info between Bosch 7410 and 7413? Rockauto states 7413 as does Autozone and Amazon. But Pelican shows 7410. Should I be looking at NGK or others? The car has a tune from GIAC, aftermarket exhaust and intake if that makes a difference... Thanks
  2. I was looking at getting a mityvac to change my oil in my Range Rover Sport and figured I could justify the purchase/space if it could do the 996tt as well. Considering there is no dipstick what do I do? Thanks
  3. I am back and will be ready to start diagnosing the car. As I do not have a smoke machine would building this work? http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/996-turbo-gt2/175969-diy-pressure-boost-leak-test-rig-w-pics.html Or would this test the "vacuum side" between the turbos and the intake. Sorry if the question is stupid, I am a novice to all of this. Any diagram out there to help me? Also I am a little scared of doing 25psi so I figured I would set it to 15-20psi to make sure I don't make things worse.
  4. Thank you to both of you. I will be out of the country for the next 3 weekends so I will report back when I return and try the methods prescribed. Thanks again.
  5. Relatively new owner. I bought my '02 996t (tip) at the end of last year. When I bought it threw the ABS PSM lights. After getting it hooked up to a durametric I learned I had the following codes: 4206 Front Left Speed Sensor - Signal Implausible5525 Incorrect data transfer with DME master control unitP0103 Porsche fault code 115 - Hot film MAF sensor Well thanks to this forum I fixed the 4206 by splicing in a new harness, since the sensor itself was good (swapped left and right and code still came through). So I thought I was down to 5525 and P0103. So I ordered a new MAF. Once I installed the MAF and cleared the codes I took the car out, put the pedal down and fairly quickly got the ABS PSM codes again. Current Scan shows: P0103 Porsche fault code 115 - Hot film MAF sensor P1250 Boost pressure deviation exceeds limit value 5525 Incorrect data transfer with DME master control unit So I got another MAF and cleared all codes, took a short trip no codes. On the return, within a minute it threw ABS PSM and the codes above in bold returned. I am at a loss... The car has a tune through GIAC, Fabspeed Exhaust, Evoms Intake (new oil-less flter with cover). Please help...
  6. When under my car I saw one of the exhaust manifold bolts half way out. After using my ratchet to put it back in it became evident that some idiot over torqued the bolt and now it is stripped. I removed the bolt and it appears to be fine so unfortunately the threads are probably gone on the block. I looked up the bolt (Part number 900 378 227 09) and it is a Hex Head M8 x 28. I was wondering how long the threads are in the block and can I simply buy an M8 x 32 (or other length M8 x 35?) and just use that. All the other 8 bolts are nice and tight. Also what is the difference between 90037822709 and 99907507100, they both appear to be Hex bolts M8x28, the only difference I see being the first one is $6 and is designated for the turbo and the second being $2 and being designated for the non turbo. Is this just a turbo tax or is there a difference?
