Performance Enhancements

Vehicle Information: Year: 2003; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.6; Total Mileage: 20,100;

Hi Steve,I would like to enhance low-end times to 4 secs. What do you recommend? I have an '03 996TT with Tip. I've already had several mods including: Evo remap (1.3 bar), Fabspeed Maxflo exhaust with new intake/headers/100 cell cats (mufflers removed), PSS9s & H&R bars. Still have stock K16s. Should I upgrade to K24s & do a remap? Would like to keep the engine stock if possible. Thanks for your time and good advice.

I'm restoring my 79 930 and looking at a set of engine decals showing 1-6-2-4-3-5 for the firing order and .1mm for the valve clearance.Can you tell me if these are correct for my car?Thanks,Chris

Engine Misfiring

Vehicle Information: Year: 1987; Engine (Size, Modifications): 930S; Total Mileage: 33104;

I read a few posts regarding misfiring or backfiring in the 930 engine. I've noticed this in my 1987 930 while deccelarating from ANY gear. It literally sounds like popcorn popping in the microwave. Some posts suggested that this is "normal" with the older 930s. My car is all stock. Should I bring it to a mechanic or did the car run like this off the production line? Thanks in advance.

3.2 in a turbo?

Vehicle Information: Year: 1977; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.0; Total Mileage: 92k;

I have a low milage '89 3.2 long block. What would be the least cost way to modify it to swap into a '77 930 in place of the existing 3.0? I was hoping to do this so as to rebuild one motor whilst doing my damnedest to blow up the one in the vehicle.Thanks!

Oil Consumption

Vehicle Information: Year: 2004; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.6 Twin Turbo w X50 Pkg; Total Mileage: 27,000;

I am looking a purchasing a used CPO 2004 TT CAB with the X-50 PKG. The prior owner said that it uses a quart of oil every 1,000-1,200 miles. Is this normal for a turbo? Is there anything that I should ask the dealer to check before I purchase the car. Thanks
