I have cleaned it all up and their is nothing obvious it will be next weekend before I get back under to take some more pics Thumb

So failed miserably trying to get the 02 sensors out (well 1 came out) rounded off the other 3 so have ordered up some new ones. stuck the cats on today all good.

Stripped out the brakes either side and decided to have a look at the actuator arms as it was reported I had one sticking so further investigation showed pass side was working fine gave it a spray and grease worked it back and forth for ten minutes and gave it a wipe down.

The drivers side was also working but occasionaly stick up and not return now I`m not convinced it was the actuator arm although probably contributed there was some corrosion on the turbo body that was restricting the lever that the arm connects two so gave the whole area a clean up and the same treatment as the other side and all seems good. a couple of points I have read on these is when you switch the ignition on the arms cycle through (I have the battery disconnected so didn't try this) and also it needs a reset on a PIWIS if its been sticking so that for later.

Not any pics as you cant see anything behind the turbo

The tandem pump cover had the usual surface rust so treated it with Bilt Hamber Deox Gel then a coat of paint.

Looking good progress. Exhaust looks nice!

I could be wrong but I dont see why you would need PIWIS unless you fit a new actuator. The ECU knows the range yours works in, it has just been stuck at a certain position. Should just be all ok if that was the issue?

I may be wrong but I read the other day that 997 turbo tandem pumps were NLA all over the place? Is that correct does anyone know? I dont need one, I fitted a billet ACP cover to mine, but its always concerning to hear of parts being unavailable.!

The turbo housings are fine although there has been horror stories about these being beyond repair in some cases I thought the surface corroision around the arm on the actuator might have been part of the problem but not really sure, In regards needing to reset the actuators this was a new one on me as well I read it in the article that Sid from Porsche torque did for Porsche 911 world.

Hadnt heard there was an issue getting a tandem pump do ACP where you got your cover not sell the pierburg pumps for the turbo ?

Did you get a part number for the studs Gazc2? Think I am going to go OEM
Got the turbos out of the packaging to fit tonight and found they had no studs in .... PC

Cheers

So go the rear shocks out today to fit the lowering springs all pretty straightforward.

strip out the bose sound shelf
slacken the bracket I took the front nut off and just slackened the back
disconnect the pasm lead & cut the cable tie attaching it to the tray
loosen the top nut its a19mm I bought an £8 scaffolders podger from ebay so I could feed the PASM lead through which worked spot on.
I removed the anti roll bar completely
disconnected the two top arms on the hub
Removed the three 13mm nuts on the top studs
Strutt pulled out

gave everything a clean up changed the spring over all straightforward,takes a bit of work to put back in slip it in at the top the use a podger/screwdriver to lever it into position at the bottom this was a bit fiddly however got one in position still got the bolt to go in as ran out of time.

Managed to grab a few hours here and there over the weekend so the suspension all back in place and buttoned up, new discs/sensors/pads fitted

When I took the rear ARB off I checked the bushes which looked a bit shot so they will be replaced and tidied up the corrosion on the end of the arm with a rub down and paint and cleaned the rest of the fittings.

Also gave the back boxes a test fit which look fine just waiting on some clamps to arrive to get them on.

Looking good. Id be tempted to upgrade the ARB to a GT2RS one whilst you are in there, they are not expensive and are adjustable.

Mines 22.5mm diameter, and I assume it is stock. Measured with some vernier calipers just now

Cheers for that , I was looking at the powerflex bushes and thought they only offered 19 & 20 mm which is why I thought the ARB was that size however I see they also have a 22mm which I am assuming is the right one Thumb

Good stuff Thumb . Will be interesting to hear your feedback on them; I may well use some powerflex stuff myself when I eventually get to suspension refresh stages. Cheers

Some more progress over the weekend got the ARB painted up cleaned up the brackets and gave them a finish with rustoleum top coat which I have used on other cars gives a clear grey look I also use this on the heads of all the bolts I clean up on the wire wheel keeps the surface rust off. (The ARB bushes are 22mm)

Also got the rear boxes on and intercoolers back in place and the Y pipe and plumbing all buttoned up so it got a fire up to hear the boxes nice gruff sound but not too loud so far so good.

I need to source 55-60cm straps for the back boxes cant see any on Fleabay will drop the guys at top gear a note or any suggestions for a supplier ?

The tips have to be welded up to the pipes I would like them to be at a slight angle like the GT2 RS so a bit of fiddling still to be done with them.

Looking good Gaz, will be interested to hear if you notice any difference with the Powerflex fitted.
Also regards the rustoleum, looks really good. Will be getting myself some of that I think.
What else have you got on the to do list?

and did you take the picture of the rustoleum with an old Brownie camera? Very Happy

Haha compressed the pic and its went a bit wonky here`s a link to the rustoleum hard hat.


http://rustoleumaerosols.co.uk/product_info.php?cPath=21_22&products_id=401

Not sure the powerflex will make a huge difference only went for them as they were similar price to the rubber, do you have a DSC module fitted in your car ?

next job is to change the front springs yours is coming along nicely

Cheers for the link Very Happy

Indeed, I recall fitting powerflex to an M3 years ago and it made a big difference but that was all the bushes so understandable I guess.
DSC module as in the one TPC make? No just standard PASM here as far as I am aware; not been able to drive the car enough to really enjoy it yet so suspension is on the 'afterwards' list.

I'm guessing the lowering springs are aftermarket? What is the drop > cheers
