Nice. Almost looks like the overlook in PV.

Where's your oil pressure though, at like 1? I don't think mine has ever been below 2, even when it's 110 degrees out. Have you switched back to the Motul or over to DT40, or are you still running that oil recommended by your Indy?

I find mine correlates with the RPM, idle at 700 rpm, Oil around 1. If cruising at 2700 rpm, around 3.

Interesting. My car is at 5 above 2,500 RPM and at about 3 at idle unless it's really hot, then it will drop to 4 above 2,500 RPM and might get as low as 2.5 or 2, but that's when the oil temp is between 225 and 250 on a really hot day, pushing the car. I wonder if RUF did something with the oil pump as part of the supercharger setup.

My wife's 997 C2S that's stock is in between your numbers and my numbers, but I've never seen a oil pressure of 1. I've seen hers get as low as 3.5 at 85 MPH when it was 112 degrees outside and we were on a trip through FL. Her oil temp was a 225 that day, which is the highest it has ever been.

Pete - yea my oil temp was about 230 ripping up the cliffs. My idle pressure is typically 1-1.2 at that temp. I vaguely remember it running higher when I bought the car but its been running 1-1.2 bar since my first oil change. I thought it might have been the switch to Motul (it wasn't).

Mine is 4-5 on anything over 3k rpm. Its a 2 on cold idle and 1-1.2 on hot idle. Lowest ive seen it was .9 at 245 temp while running through a mountain pass in 100+ degree weather.

LOL

Don't worry, I photoshopped the pics to clear side markers so I could enjoy the view. Oh, and your wheel crest to valve stem orientations are way off - dammit, that's all I can see when I look at the pictures now.

You need to go to Dependable Tire. Ron knows how to align the crests. A lot of (too many) people don't have a clue. It's the details ...

Great photos and a very nice mix of 911's!!
I must have been missing something. What is the proper orientation of wheel crest to valve stem?

7 years bad luck if your crests don't point to your valve stems :-)

Default How to Rotate Crests?

So, speaking as a newbie, how do the crests rotate to line-up with the stems?

You orient them properly before popping them into the wheel hub and then they stay that way. The reason they point to the valve stem comes from the old racing days where the pit crews would check or adjust tire pressures and being able to know exactly where the valve stem was located without having to search for it saved time. On my Cayenne wheels that have a stepped lip with the valve stem internal and on that transition, it's actually useful to help locate them.
