Just got my '99 996 C4 back after I had the front bumper replaced with a turbo bumper from www.nrauto.com. Does the temp seem to be running a little hot? - I am driving around in regular traffic in cool Michigan weather.

Loren, you are probably right on the 3rd radiator for me. It has been 115 this past week and I am sure for the next couple weeks. My only thought is thatwe are moving back to DC next year and probably wouldn't need the 3rd rad.

did you add the 3rd radiator yourself?

If you are asking mdillian3690, then likely not. Tiptronic cars come with a 3rd radiator that is plumbed to the transmission for cooling not the engine.

If you want to see how to install it click on the link at the top of the forum for Loren's DIY pages and choose 3rd Radiator Install.

Loren, Thanks for the education on the 3rd radiator.  I was wondering my temp runs in the range that it does with 3 radiators. 

my996, hey what do you have your tire pressures set at?  I have 17inch tires?  Just curious!

I am running 18" wheels and the pressure for them is different.

The factory recommends 36 front and 36 rear for 17" wheels.

I've found that different tires and driver "style" preferences make it very hard to post the best tire pressures. My advice is to try some small adjustments and see which suits your driving style and tires. I would not go below 32 PSI or above 40 PSI on 17" wheels.

18" wheels are a different story...
