Ive just had a dyno test on my Boxster S, 2000 model, 158 000km, RHD, daily driver. I have a 'dip' in the graph readings for both power and torque between 5 800 - 6 300 r/min - see attached. Any thoughts as to what this could be caused by? No misfires or any other symptoms. Scanner shows no fault codes. Im satisfied with the results, bar the 'dip', as the flywheel HP is usually about 12% more than is achieved at the wheels. Boxster HP graph.pdf
Hello everyone, Does anyone have or know where I may have the bolt torque specs for a 2008 Cayenne Turbo? I need pretty much the specifications for all the bolts and nuts that would be included in a block replacement. I'm getting the back rebuilt by 928 Motorsports and reinstalling with an experienced friend. However, it's nearly impossible to find the specs for these motors. Additionally, if there's a place where I could find a complete 957 workshop manual, could someone please advise? Thank you.
Hello all! I'm new to the forum so please forgive me if I am posting this question in the wrong place. I have a general question about torque tolerance. For the moment, I'm not speaking of any particular bolt or nut or whatever you're torquing . But I imagine all car specifications for torque values should have (or even publish) the allowable tolerance or acceptable range the torque can be set to and it will be effective and safe. As an example, on the car I have, 1997 Boxster, the oil drain plug is stated at 39 ft./lbs. Great! That's probably the nominal value (middle of the range), but what is the range? Digging a little deeper, I'd imagine that just about every single bolt or screw has its own allowable tolerance and there is no one size fits all, but I want to stay general just for a moment longer...assuming published torque settings have a tolerance, generally speaking are we talking about a couple % either side of nominal or are torque setting tolerances measured even tighter, say a quarter of a % high and low of nominal? To continue the previous example in a bit more detail, let's say the oil drain plug wants 39 ft./lbs. +/- 3.9 ft./lbs. In this case the tolerance would be 10% of the nominal value. I'm just making up numbers now to tease out the point. Here's the deal...if I set my crappy torque wrench that has a published accuracy range of +/-4%, and I set it to 39 ft./lbs, and I use it with good technique I will hear the "click" as low as....well wait a second...we have to first understand what +/-4% actually means. 4% of what??? So here's a little more detail. If I have 3/8" TW with a published range of 10-80ft./lbs., the actual range of the tool is 70. The accuracy is +/-4% of 70. This yields an accuracy of 2.8 ft/lbs. So going back to my previous example when I heard the "click", the actual torque applied to the oil plug was as low as 36.2 ft/lbs. and as high as 41.8 ft/lbs. Considering, again from my made up numbers from above, the oil plug has an allowable tolerance of 3.9 ft/lbs. the true range of acceptability is 35.1-42.9 ft/lbs. If this were all true, my crappy torque wrench is not so crappy after all as I hit the tolerance pretty well; I'm right in there. So first, is my logic correct? Second, what is a good general rule of thumb for specified torque tolerance, 1%? 10%? Yes I know some things are more sensitive than others, but rule of thumb here... Third, are the torque settings that are published, published with a tolerance? If not, what is the rule of thumb for those? Ultimately, this conversion, and understanding the math and data can effectively help you save a TON of money on buying your next torque wrench. Do you need to pay for 2% accuracy or is 4% just fine? Thoughts please! Happy Holidays to all!! Adam
Hi all, Does anyone have the torque settings for the suspension bits on the 997.2? Bits to carrier, bits to body, bits to cross member, bits to bits.. including the sway/stabilizer bars? I'm replacing stabilizer, control arms, tie rods, springs, toe arms etc and need to know how much muscle to put on them. Thanks!
I plan on using the Motive to bleed my brakes this weekend and after searching the forum and maintenance manuals I cannot find an exact value to torque the bleeder valve. I have seen reference to 7.5 lbs-ft and 9 lbs-ft. I assume this is an ok range (staying on the low side, assuimng no leaks). I am a little sensitive to this since I had a 1 year service done at a dealer a while back and the left front outer bleed valve came back with a slightly rounded head, as if the tech over-tightened it and the wrench slipped off. Any comments about the torque range or the exact value if you know it? Thanks.
