Boost Anyone? Just for fun

Recommended Posts

Just for fun. Recently had my 120k mile service completed for my 04 CTT. Clean bill of health and ran good sounded better felt great. Soon there after I happened across a gent in a Viper truck, coming up behind me fast flashing his lights blowing his horn and then pulls along side window down and thumbs up. I think to myself, " ...man I too old for this sh*t...", but give him a go anyway. PSM off, suspension lowered and to sport, 3 horn blasts and floor it! After a huge breath and accompanying roar and turbo lag, it's 1st gear and off we go! Needless to say it was fun. More to say after he caught up; "...that's not stock!" No it isn't I reply. So as I let him speed of I continue my leisurely sub 60mph drive home. Along the way I get PSM failure visit workshop. Okay...next up check engine light. Hmm...next up tranny lights up like it's in safe mode but is audibly and physically shifting fine. Temp is a little higher than normal and hmm...no more than .3 bar boost at WOT? Okay what did I break now? SO, at home codes pulled: 2187, 2198, 2281, 0299.

Okay smoke 'em! Turn out I've manage to "break?" the old worn out breather hoses and the intake distributor is leaking! Gee Bevis...anywho fun weekend for me! So, while I'm in there I think I'll swap out the diverter valves and control lines as well. Just wanted to share.

      I purchased an '04 CTT about a year ago and have been slowly bringing the technology up to date (rear view camera, up-to-date stereo)...
       
      I am interested in adding TPMS, and there's one that is compatible with my Apple Carplay stereo:

      https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tpms/id542118415?mt=8
       
      Was wondering if anyone else had success using something different.  There are plenty on eBay that use bluetooth and a simple Car-Lighter plug-in monitor (which would work for me as well):

      I was looking at the Cayenne fluid prices at Pelican Parts, and I noticed a section with wheel bearing grease and the following note: " It's a good idea to clean and repack your bearings once a year."
      I've never cleaned and re-packed my wheel bearings. My cars have always had bearings that appear to be sealed. I haven't found anything about this process for the Cayenne via google or in the forums here. Is this just a mistake at pelican parts, or should I be doing this?
      Has anyone cleaned and re-packed the wheel bearings on their CTT?
       
      Thanks.

      Hi to all in the forum, I am Chris from Greece and I am looking for a piece of advice.

      I have found a CTT 2005 with 35000 miles that a bank sells after being abandoned for 2+ years and not in garage. As the price is tempting and I am looking forward to spend some cash to bring back to the road.

      What do you thing I must expect in terms of Service, taking for granted that all liquids in engine and trans are going to be replaced, new tyres etc.

      P.S. probably a conversion to 2007 F/L look is a thought. http://www.renntech.org/forums/uploads/downloadedimages/edit.gif' title="Edit/Delete Message" alt="edit.gif">

      Started the vehicle this AM around 10 to leave and the idle starts dropping right away but slowly while in park. Drops really low, then picks back up. Does this a few times while I'm going OH****. Put er in Drive and the idle drops again. It dies. I start it right back up and if I gave it gas same drop then dead. I'm going to test the other fuel pump with fuse on primary pulled.
       
      Last week we had humming coming from the fuel pump but it went away. While driving last day or so idle seemed rough.
       
      I'll be looking for the tech writeup on the fuel pump tests.

      Hi.
      Please watch the video and see if the boost is doing what it should. Video is taken from standstill in 1st gear, full throttle, up to third gear.trim.Dq9a7e.MOV
