  1. If you dont plan to do the rebuild yourself I recommend Jake Raby at http://www.flat6innovations.com/ or Don Weaver at https://www.ebsracing.com/
  2. I am looking for the black electrical connection that is shown by the green arrow in the photo. The tab that secures the connection to the male side molded onto the top of the fuel filter snapped right off as I applied pressure to take it off. Thanks in advance to anyone who knows part number and where I can get it. It looks like a standard connection with a release that can be taken off and another put back on the wires. This is on a 2008 Cayenne base model with a V6.

  4. 182k miles on '03 before the IMS failed late last fall. It was not the IMS that failed but the installation was incorrectly completed. So really ask around if the shop/mechanic has the experience and certification he claims to have.....
  5. Do you have a the manual for the 2008 Cayenne?


  6. Finaly found something on Google: An online supplier list a conversion kit that has the brackets, hoses, bolts.
  7. 1987 2.5L base 944 coupe: Wondering if anyone has seen this type of install for an A/C compressor- In May the Las Vegas Region PCA (LVRPCA) arranged for members to receive an assessment of their car compliments of Trophy Performance. After getting the car on the lift and raised the first thing the mechanic pointed out to me was, "I don't know what that A/C compressor is supposed to go into, but it isn't a Porsche 944." Another mechanic confirmed his observation. The accessory drive belt (crank pulley, AC, alternator) is also longer than the OEM belt and about 1/3 the
  8. I took that course last February. Jake and Tony are great instructors, the professional techs taking the course were all very patient with us 'enthusiast, and the facility is really, really cool. Jake mentioned something about getting a book out about rebuilding. Hoping he gets it published soon.
  9. Here's another "I did it!" success post! Many thanks to: Hobbes for the original DIY AOS post; to Ahsai for his post ('MkII AOS DIY Sanity Check') regarding the procedural differences for the MkII engine; and the many other users who have posted about their AOS replacement experience . Especially thanks to Loren et al who created and maintian this resource! If it hasn't already been done, I would suggest that the link to Ahsai's post be added to the Hobbes original DIY post. The search function didnt return Ahsai's MkII post; it was just 'blind-luck' that I found it while wandering throu
  10. Ahsai,, I also have a 2003 C2 (a Cabriolet). I am experiencing a challenging removal of the final bolt of the upper air intake. It seems that the round face of the AOS sits directly above the bolt head. Can you please share how you removed that bolt? And to clarify, my AOS is the newer part that does not have a bellows. I see too that the older AOS that has the bellows has two bolts that are horizontal into the block; the newer AOS has two mounting bolts that are positioned vertically into the block.
  11. lakeview: I learned the same thing about the Bentley manual.....Somewhere in this forum I did find a post about using a voltmeter to test the crankshaft sensor; sorry I don't remember where I found it. But I did pull the sensor and it was not in the range it should be. I replaced the sensor and the car then started. It took a couple of attempts, I guess the fuel system needed to prime or recharge.
  12. Odd coincidence, I'm experiencing a similar issue. On the drive home from work on Monday the car ran fine, no issues. When I went to start up this morning, it will crank but will not start. I hooked up the Durametric and found there were no codes. When I ran the 'Short test all modules' under the 'Function' tab it did its thing and returned these values. 21 W lead (DME Immobilizer) 49 K lead 60 Control locking limit position lock not reached 54 Radio receiver defective 33 Interior sensor faulty 18 Pressure sensor lumbar open circuit I have been l
  13. I replace that part every year when the summer temps break into the triple digits; usually late June or early July.
