Re: EPiKs '99 Carrera 2

More what? Wheels? :lol: :lol: :lol: My favorite are the 5-spoke if you paint them dark. :twisted: i'm a wheel whore.. and before I bought the 996 I even had adaptors made to run Porsche wheels on my Infiniti G35 coupe. I have a set of solid spoke C4S twists in hiding too :roll: Those silver 5 spok...

Re: EPiKs '99 Carrera 2

The other day to fix a rattle I heard on start up I investigated the timing chain tensioners. I discovered that the IMS tensioner, and the cyl 1-3 tensioner were swapped, apparently when the IMS bearing was replaced with an LN Engineering one at 168k miles in 2014 in TX. When I got the new tensioner...

Re: EPiKs '99 Carrera 2

got around to re-sizing some pics of building the first exhaust. I'm currently working on a second version with another one of the same mufflers, but split open and re-designed on the inside to try and reduce the drone and cavitation I have when hwy cruising in top gear. Sure many companies build ex...

Re: Basest 996 Award

yes I lucked out finding this car with LSD, obviously it was ordered that way. I was going thru the Carfax and when this car was 2 years old it covered almost 8,000 miles in a period of 2 months out in California. I kinda like that this 911 has always been a driver's car.. the 171k miles it covered ...

Re: Uggh.. timing chain rattle?

I did an oil/filter change yesterday and swapped both of the easily accessible tensioners. Noise is gone. The single circle (IMS tensioner) was in the double circle (cyl 1-3) location and there is obvious wear marks on it. Both are now installed in the proper locations and I have the 3rd for cyl 4-6...

Re: CEL Flashed twice

Yeah, the Pampers came off after I saw the codes. Coils and plugs are going to be changed. 54k miles but a lot of years and my guess is still the originals. Will give me the chance to do engine mounts, air filter and that troublesome water connection that everyone complains about. Already have the ...
