I removed my torque brace to replace the bushings. In doing this I cracked one of the lines to have the warning light come on. I decided to replace the whole group of vacuum lines. I bought it from ECS Tuning 379307_x600.jpg To replace the group of pre-assembled vacuum tubes I did the following. 1. removed plastic cover plates 2. removed three points were the vacuum lines attach and left in position for removal later, two points are clips you can use a pliers to move and reuse. The third is stuck on there pretty good. I made a cut on the old part with a razor to remove. 3. removed torque brace 4. Then there is a torque brace mount. I removed torque brace mounting nut closest to engine 5. The other nut it way inside toward the fender, so i lifted the torque brace mount as if it was a wrench. you need about a half inch to work the old vacuum line out and new vacuum line in under that part. 6. Put all the vacuum connections on and reassembled.
These forums are awesome. The information brought me directly to the source of my gas smell. I found my leak to be a tiny point at the top of the fuel filter assembly which would push fuel out very slowly when under pressure. Here's a video of the leak as I wipe it from the fuel filter and the it bleeds out each time while under pressure.
greg schroeder replied to Enzo955's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Here are a few points of relevance for my data. 2006 Cayenne Turbo S Stock 95 octane unleaded fuel City driving with local lights often missed. Area driven zip code 85260 and 85259 mostly Day driving DA(density altitude) has been averaging around 4000ft to 5000ft About two weeks since last reset of MPG, couple hundred miles Occasional full throttle and driven average with minimal concern of fuel usage other times Included would be two passes up to 100 mph or so full throttle for testing 11 MPG
I was comfortable looking over the Cayenne TTS I bought myself. When you come across some cars that need a little cleaning, yet you know they're all there you just need to say thank you God. It's pretty nice other than some little stuff you'd have to expect for the age.
More power, drivability and fuel economy sounds good. If you like, there's a really cool app called Dynolicious. It's only $9.99. You can test HP for a base line as you ad mods. Finding a solid location to put the phone is about the hardest part. It just needs to have the screen facing somewhere between upward and toward the back of the car. The phone can't be sideways or crooked. It's important to put a real weight for the car in there too. If you want to get technical you can keep track of weather for corrections and keep notes also. Just use DA converter. This also keeps things real if people compare to each other. http://wahiduddin.net/calc/calc_hp_dp.htm http://www.dragtimes.com/da-density-altitude-calculator.php
I just bought my first Cayenne. It's a stock 2006 Turbo S and I love it. It actually has 130,000 miles. It's been maintained with receipts, silly expensive break and rotor job, drive shaft deal, and some other stuff, no accidents and even has pretty good paint. When I got the car the interior was one of those which hadn't been molested with the goop, but it was indeed dirty. I just can't believe how fantastic the interior looks after cleaning with a soft bristle brush. These interiors are tough. The car is tight and everything seems to work too. Downside seems to be I need to fix the stock wheels a bit from curb rash, I bought new floor matts, a battery as it sounded a bit sluggish on start up, and two door sill trim pieces. Even though I got a pretty decent price I don't think you could wrestle this one away from me for less than 26,000. It's just too nice.
