Hey Michael,
Thanks, your car was the inspiration for me to do mine! And your car does look stunning thumbsup
I'm hoping that it will be a case of just doing the handover and I wont have the annoying fast indicator noise inside the car anymore.
I will update once I get it into the OPC

nick, i am almost positive that your rear module final setting may still be set as incandescent and not LED. i think during the handover and settings copying the the module may have been reset.

to those that are doing the conversion, depending upon the year of your car (i think this applies for 2005) your rear light male plug is a tad too long and the 2009+ taillight even when plugged in will not have the electrical contacts connect. either the plastic tabbing needs to be shaved or the rear tailight female coupler needs to be shaved down a few mm. i had the exact same issue as nick when i was supervising my conversion, and thought my lights were damaged until i had the body shop doing some shaving and it worked.

ps nick, you car looks great - you need a full interior + exterior photoshoot done when its all sorted.

obviously i love the 997.2 clears + conversion.

Slightly off subject but Michael might know , I am not on the hunt for a set of clear rears for my gen2 , I have seen a set but is says US spec and that they wont be uk legal does this mean there is no amber indicator and that it flashes red instead. thought I should ask before throwing away money Grin Thumb

while i am not 100% sure re the differences between uk + na road legal dot requirements, but i can tell you that there is no amber at all on my clear tail tails or any that i have seen anywhere in north america + canada - so chances are you are 100% correct.

Hi Guy a

Sorry to revive this thread..
I have a 2009 GT2 and have done the rear conversion.
I assume I have the needed modules as it is 2009.
I've shaved the connector , connected everything flawlessly and coded all modules to LED with Durametric Pro.
Turn the key to position 1 , test everything : everything works great except I have rapid flashing signals on the cluster... I can live with it.
I start the engine ... rear turn signals start to flick and then shuts off.....
I tried to connect FVD modules : these removed the hyper flashing light on the cluster but still no turn signal when engine is running..... I even tried the pin swapping ( I should not need it ... ) when it only gets worse ( sometimes no light at all depending on the pins )

Any help is HIGHLY appreciated... can't wait to get my beat out of the garage for the summer....

3nder,
As yours is a 09 it should have been a case of plug and play as you already have the rear OEM LED lights!
Really you wouldn't have needed to code them.
Put your old lights back in and see what happens, maybe you coded them wrong.
I still haven't had the time to visit my OPC to get them sorted!

Or Gen 1.5. Externally the same but the later cars carry PCM 3.0 vs the older type....
Yes yes I'm removing the sandals, socks and annorak immediately

Hi Nikos, can't help you with your problem I'm afraid, hope you get it sorted!

I am really interested in the K&N filter setup, like you I fitted a turbo wing/decklid to my car. I bought an Agency Power dual cone filter with the carbon air box, it was second hand but never used (awful quality by the way if anyone ever considers one, don't). The engine really struggled to cope with this setup, the ECU compensated as best it could but it would run very rough below 3000 revs, a huge flatspot at 2500 and I was getting CELs and all sorts of fault codes. In the end I took the wing off and went back to stock.

Interested how you got on with the K&N set up, any running issues, fault codes etc?

Hi Rob, thanks, I still haven't had time to take it to my dealer, I'm sure it's just a case of coding, well I hope it is Floor
I've had the wing fitted for over a year with the K&N setup, I've had no problems with the K&N filter at all.
I know lots of people had problems with oil fouling the MAF, having flat spots and CELs and generally not being happy with the K&N filter.
I did mod the K&N setup a little: so I had read about all these problems and first saw a trend in that people were putting the maf the wrong way round, hence flat spots, CELs etc, I then read up on velocity profiles, Reynolds numbers & laminar flow and decided the easiest thing to do would be to install a flow straightener!
Basically the flow straightener increases turbulence at low flow rates to keep the flow turbulent at low loads - what your MAF wants- and decrease the entrance length at all loads to remove the effect of bends before the MAF-which on the K&N setup is not applicable as the MAF has no bends before it.
I cut down an old Audi 3" MAF housing, perfect fit and it did make a difference, I'm not talking HP but the car seemed to "breathe" easier.

And a fitted pic.
Also be sure to get a sock to prevent any chance of water fouling.

That’s really interesting Nikon’s, thank you. Will be looking into this when I get home from Germany! From what you have said, it could well be that the MAF fitting on my Agency Power Y pipe is very close to a bend, might have a play with this first! If I don’t get any joy I may well invest in the K&N set up!
Cheers Thumb

Worth fitting a flow straightener Rob just to see if there is any improvement before spending money on changing your setup.
If you don't have an old maf housing they can be had on ebay for a few £.
Hope it works out thumbsup

hello did u get this fixed? u have a 2009 so despite the older tail lights the rear module is still the newer module but set to 'incandescent'.... all that needs to be done is set to 'led'.

if this doesn't work then i believe some pin swapping may be needed.
