Another little one

Boot carpet screw (previously MIA)

Just waiting to see if weather improves enough this weekend for LTT fit or PU removal.

OK, so probably the biggest (or second biggest mod I was planning), but still doable in 2 hours first time.

No such thing as third-time lucky, as the hose retainer had corroded and after struggling to even turn it around for 20 mins, it was apparent one off the twin bands had snapped. This meant as much as I squeezed the release tabs, the snapped ring never opened (released), so I had to angle grind.

But that was the only gremlin, in fact this was the "driest" change I'd done and I think I lost less than cup of coolant in total (main reasons were unscrew the drain plug over the bucket Confused , and use the reservoir cap up top to control the flow rate - also, to stop the block dripping on me continuously once "drained" in some sort of water-torture - I simply lightly screwed the drain plug back in whilst I continued lying under the car)

I'm rambling, because basically, the method is here:

http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=83808
and
http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=65932

Only real difference between 997 and 996 was the E10 Torx (rather than hex bolts) and "quick" release hose retaining clip (rather than Jubilee)

Oh, and for the 996 I used an insert only (£80 from Hartech) and gasket from OPC (I think £4.50) now I can get a full housing, gasket and insert by Wahler (but housing actually Porsche part) from https://www.frazerpart.com/ for £45

The part is the same for any M96/M97 (ie 996.1 3.4 all the way through 997.1 3.Cool

Note: the Porsche part number has been removed by Wahler (as no one but Porsche can sell OEM parts). But note the official "triangle P" OEM part stamp Floor



Photo list:

1.) BorgWarner Box (Wahler)
2.) Housing and 71 deg tstat
3.) Part number redaction (but \P/ stamp)
4.) Gasket
5.) Chock
6.) Raised rear by (the higher the better for air-lock mitigation on re-commissioning) - I drove up onto a sleeper and then jacked for a 55cm lift in total)
7.) ... and front view
8.) WD-40'd hardline and housing bolts (and the recalcitrant hose clip)
9.) Draining (and the drain plug on the socket)
10.) Pink!

Cont'd

11) Old vs New
12) The angle-ground clip and the Jubilee replacement (£1.79 Halfords)
13) Block mating face (pre clean)
14) ... and cleaned (wet and dry)
15) Housing on
16) All back together
17) Oil temp seems to be stable at 85-87 deg-ish (and oil pressure about 0.2-0.3 bar higher)

About two hours, but all three LTTs have been staccato due to documenting (I kept having to get up and take photo - took about 60 in total, then put phone back out of harms reach so I didn't sit on it, kick it or cover with WD-40 or coolant!) - I had hoped to beat my previous time.

There was faff with the sleeper "ramps" and a good 20 mins wasted on the "quick release" hose clip - a good old fashioned jubilee clip would have been off in seconds!

I wasn't in a rush, I could visualise what needed doing, the sun was out and the music was on.

I suppose all going to plan, you could do in an hour.

There really aren't many stages (a drain plug, a hose clip and seven bolts)

I think I went out for a drive* afterwards for longer, but that took in OPC Hatfield and free food and drink and 991 brochures.



*I stopped every 5 miles or so to check the coolant level (continually monitoring oil, coolant and heater performances in the meantime) and refill.

Filled the remaining 2L over 40 miles.

I checked again this am and went for quick 15 mile drive this am (purge valve down) but taking 1L to Kent tomorrow, just in case.

LTT seems fine.

70 miles at 79mph (M25 @ 7-8am Sunday morning) giving just under 90 deg C on oil temp and an average speed over the same distance of 31.4 MPG.

how the heck do you get over 30mpg in a 911, do you roll down hills and only go up them if there's a good wind behind?

1) get a small engined one
2) fit LTT for better economy, not blended optimised emissions
3) drive with no traffic
4) as above, and let CC keep speed consistent
5) drive on a warm, low pressure (low air density) day*


















*I guess I'll just have to try again in August

That would probably clear 40mpg!

I meant I would try the experiment again under different temp (weather) conditions, I wasn't planning on changing more than one factor at a time.

#4 = 79mph

Very effective it is too. It makes the car look stunningly filthy.




Having the number plates and wheels done really completed 'the look'. Thumb
