  1. We tested several types of lubricants when I was in school and found that the type could cause wild swings in torque applied vs. elongation. Generic torque tables being used with lubricants is a recipe for disaster and can easily overstress a fastener. An article I read years later in AOPA (September 2000) seemed to have a very good discussion on the subject and is worth a quick read . http://www.aopa.org/members/files/pilot/2000/anp0009.html
  2. I had a similar leak on my 996 that was solved by updating the hose clamp. There is a TSB that covers this subject for the 996.
  3. I agree with logray. I have seen 100LL lead foul a plug firsthand Sometimes I would get lucky by doing a runup and leaning the mixture and sometimes my flight ended on the ramp due to lead fouling. The "low lead" is misleading.
  4. Gates has a nifty polyrib checker. A belt may pass visual but the groove depths may be out of spec.
  5. Your first number is not an engine number, it is the transmission type number G9600 is for years 99-01 G9601 is for years 02-05
  6. Normal, especially after sitting for a few days
  7. As Paul said, held in by the adjusters. Buy new ones since the old ones tend to corrode. The 2 flat nuts with the shoulders are placed on each side of the tray and the knurled nut is actually the adjuster. It may be easier to remove the wheel liner to do the major adjusting to avoid numerous removals of the light to get it right.
  8. Are you talking about the one on the right? Offset box end wrench Left=Idler center=tensioner right=idler
  9. It will not work. The flex plate for the turbo is 9 bolt and yours is 8 bolt. The bell housing bolt pattern is different on the transmission housing. etc. etc.
  10. I have Cargraphic (muffler p/n CARP996ETS) They do not drone on the highway, but sound very aggressive otherwise (a little loud IMHO).
  11. You need to remove the upper bump stop. New regulators come with two and are designed to work on both the Boxster and the 996.
  12. Expanding on what RFM said, AT66565018 AT = Austauschmotor or exchange motor 1st digit = number of cylinders 2nd digit = normally aspirated 3rd digit = 2005 4th thru 8th digits = serial number
  13. Look at the pattern inside the housing. The 996 clear headlight has a diamond/grid pattern where the 986 clear headlight has a linear/fluted pattern for part number 986.631.132.14. Otherwise, they are interchangeable.
  14. I agree with JFP. I happen to know for a fact the only thing that needs to be moved from the old engine (tiptronic) to the new is the water neck (see pic showing neck transferred to old engine for core return) on a factory reman. Seems like you are just getting a long block?? Didn't see this option available in the reman catalog
  15. You cannot overrev a tip. Surely Porsche knows this. Even if you rapidly downshift multiple times, the tip logic will only downshift when safe to do so.
