The "Sooty Tailpipe" Thread...Pics only

Post by 808Bill » Fri Jan 18, 2019 7:56 am

Early signs of bore scoring are "sooty" tail pipes.

Lets just keep this photos only for the "Miester's" viewing pleasure.
Sound recordings (device placed on the ground under Bank 1 or 2) if you think you're hearing things.

02 996 with factory replacement from an 05 w/50ish miles. Original injectors have 125K miles on them.
My pipes are from the 125K motor.

2002 Porsche 996 Carrera - bare bones basic, but still a blast to drive! Heck, I don't even have PSM on it. Ha!

Wow, your motor mounts definitely need replacing...never seen a gap like that! They must be completely blown.

B3 Freak, and Hatchetf15 both concern me. Hatchet has two pipes that are more sooty than I like to see. Your consumption also concerns me.

I will be checking B3s tomorrow.

Hatchetf15,
Clean these pipes very well on both sides and take pics of them when cleaned. Then drive until you see a marked difference in their color, then re- shoot and upload the pics.

One of you guys need to start a thread like this on RL too, so we can really get a gauge on how many cars may have this and have not been caught. If I start it, i'll be a fear Monger again. We may be able to save some engines by doing this!

Bill,

I would add context for your OP. If someone new joins and just sees random tail pipe pics, he might think we're all just indulging Renn Miester's sooty pipe fetish...lol
