hi,

I bought and installed a ROW M030 kit for my '01S, but never installed the sways, so they've been sitting around for 5 years. I saw the front bar in my stash and nearly put it on a couple...

CATS - do they go bad?

I got a CEL on my 986 S. I hooked up my durametric and got the code but don't remember it right now. I looked up the code which basically said a CAT isn't doing anything. There weren't codes for...

I call your p1126 and raise you a p1133 + p0102 + p0507. Oddly, Bentleys says p1133 is a 5.2 dme code although my car is a '01S with 7.2 dme. That, and the codes indicate both lean and rich...

I've heard it said, and for the most part agree - the only real 911s are the air cooled and the GTs. These cars have race-ready engines. The other newer 911s are overpriced passenger cars for...

Good for you skrap, but I have to agree with papa - the way to become disillusioned with the legal system is to sue. You'll double your loss in court fees, time off work, hiring document servers,...

Changed gear oil on my '01S at 46k miles. Lots of sparkly stardust in my drain pan. IMO Porsche's 60k interval is not sufficient. There is no magnet in the plug so all this metallic debris is...

Get a lift. The amount of $ I've spent on various jacks and stands over the years would probably add up to half the cost of the Bendpak lift I bought. I recently put in a coolant tank which is an...
