New 996TT owner here..jus checking in

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

a new 996TT owner, just wanted to check in with everyone. I've been searching the forums here and other sites, learning the ins and outs of the beast that is now my car. I picked up an "02 polar silver, stock, with 58K on od, still with CPO here in San Diego and I've been drivin the wheels off over the last week. I don't plan to mod heavy as I'm worried about warranty issues. The plan for now is coilovers, front clear bra, tint, and considering having my wheels powder coated a dark charcoal. thats it. Just going to enjoy driving it awhile before I get too crazy. Might do a few events here in town with the PCA San Diego.

I did have a question though....from what I have read here, the average boost on stock turbos is around .6-.8 with an occasional spike to .9.......well, I'm holding at 1.0 bar wihtout any bleed off on a regular basis. I didn't know this was outside the norm until i read it here. I ran a test today on the way to work, here are the conditions:

3rd gear pull, from 2500-6000 rpm, then shift into 4th, pull for 3 seconds....full throttle

65 degrees outside, San Diego, getting onto the 5 from Sorrento Valley, full tank of gas, no additive,

it jumped immediately to 1.0 bar and held that until i let off the gas....held 1. bar in 4th too. it will spike to 1 in first and second from what i can see, but you know how hard it is to look down at the gauge in first and second in this thing while pulling hard.

Anyways, I'd love some feed back on this, about the boost. And if any of you out there have a set of coilovers you don't need, lemme know. I'll post some more pics soon.

Run it on a PIWIS or PST2 and it will give you an error message that says that the DME has been altered. Loren has the exact terminology. He ran my car and I have a flash and it snitched me off.....Porsche uses this sometimes to deny warranty....but your'e out of warranty anyway.

Thanks for the advice...Yea, I'd like to look into that to see if it has been flashed. I'm out of the Factory warranty in 2 months and just started an extended warranty with an outside company. I don't plan to mod the car for a while, just enjoy driving it....so I don't want to negate the warranty for any reason....expecially one that I didn't even do. Good thing is that I can take it to any dealer for warranty work, so hopefully it will be a place that deosn't check for that stuff. thanks again,
