How can the turbocharger intake manifold gasket be replaced without dropping the engine?

Hello all,

I've smoke tested the intake system on my 02 Turbo and I can see that it is leaking from somewhere under the turbo intake manifold but above the engine.  My guess is that the gasket needs to be replaced (part # 996-110-613-71).

I've been told that gasket means that the engine needs to come out to replace it. I would prefer to avoid dropping the engine if I can just to replace a silly gasket.

EURO 930 Power kit Part #'s

I recently purchased a 1983 ROW 930 that I believe was a special wishes car equipped with the factory 330 bhp power kit introduced that year.  I understand the additional power was due to a larger intercooler, higher lift cams, revised airbox, and a 4 tip dual outlet exhaust amongst other items.  My car has the original SN, but has had some bolt on modifications.  I would like to return the car to it's original 930 S specs and would thus like to find the missing parts.

Annoying vibrating noise when acceleration over 3000.

There is an annoying vibration sound coming from the passenger side window. It appears once the engine is warmed and the acceleration is over 3000rpm. It becomes less noticeable over 4000rpm probable because the normal engine sound is louder. The dealer has wrapped heat exchangers which may have helped temporarily. The mechanic seemed to think that it was related to the turbos kicking in. Any help would be appreciated.

 

2009 911 turbo cab. A very annoying sound, like a wind rattle from the passenger sidewjen the engine warms up and the revs are above 3000. only happens while accelerating. Dealer insulated heat exchange pipes(?). Any help would be appreciated.

There is a very annoying sound, like wind vibration coming from outside the passenger side window. It happens once the engine warms and when I rev over 3000 rpm. It only occurs with acceleration and seems to get quieter air smoother over 4000rpm but I think it's because the sound of the normal engine is louder. The dealer placed insulation around heat exchangers which may have helped temporarily. The last comment was that it's the turbo kicking in. That would only make sense if it is causing a rattle or vibration somewhere because the noise isn't there all the time.

How can I tell if I have X50 turbos or not?

I just bought my 996 turbo, and people keep asking if I have the X50 turbos or not. How Can I tell? The exhaust is aftermarket, so I can't check the tips. Thanks!

engine oil over full

Model: 996, Year:2003, Mileage:29000, Type of use:Street use only
I had my 30K service done, and the person didn't drain the second tank, then putting 9.5 quarts of oil in the car. After noticing it had to much oil, I took it back, and he did the same thing again. As a result, I figure there was 17.5 quarts of oil in my car. After leaving the shop, it began to run bad and smoke. Then it cut loose, and smoke and oil began to poor out the back. How much damage could have been done to my engine?
