I know the majority of people on this site are not from the UK but maybe there is someone who can help.

I have just bought a 996tt and really want to learn more about the engine and technical aspects of it. Does anyone know how i could go about this, i would be happy to pay for someone local to explain and show me a few things or are there any good books available? If any one here could do this or knows someone who might please let me know

Thanks very much for your help

Try to find an '05 sales brochure for the turbo S. The same basic engine from 2001 thru 2005. Pretty good detail about the car and engine.

Also, get a Porsche parts CD "PET". All exploded diagrams with part numbers and names. Cheap money too.

Check your oil level frequently, let your motor idle for about 2 minutes before you shut it down, and watch for tire wear-especially on the inside.

Any particular reason for this????

I agree that after having driven hard the Turbos need to cool down before turning off the engine but after a "normal" drive as well?? The PAG manual does not seem to formally recommend this way of handling either!?
