thinking about 996 TT what issues are there?

Recommended Posts

2002 996 TT Tiptronic w/ 20,000 miles.

I'll do a PPI check and look at type i and ii overrevs, but what type of maintenance costs am i looking at down the line (2-3 yrs)? are there any issues that i should worry about to begin with?

i'll definitely upgrade the diverter valves, what else?

thanks.

Intercooler hoses from that year are not the newer silicone ones unless the previous owner changed them. If not silicone they will fail and collapse causing significant power losses.

Cooling system hoses are also a concern on a 7 year old car. Other than that I think you are looking at normal maintenance like oil changes, brakes and tires. Further down the road you will need spark plugs and possibly coil packs.

Not sure you'll have to worry about over revs...it is a tip right? In addition to what Loren already posted, you may need/want to replace /upgrade suspension (coil overs, links, etc.). And then of course you may want more power (exhaust/ecu flash, etc.)....enjoy.

Just curious how you know this has occurred ... is it that dramatic of a power loss where the car basically shuts down? Also, can you inspect the coil packs without removing a lot of stuff?

Thx!
