I looked into retrofitting this, but it's a big job. It would have cost too much money for the benefit. You need fuel lines, different fuel pressure regulator, the control module, a different HVAC...

Agreed. Changed my filters at 40k miles and they weren't dirty at all.

I'm pretty sure that's a VW motor, and it's not used in any other Porsche chassis. Panamera has a Porsche V6. You might want to check with a touareg forum, or some other VW forum as they'll know...

Yep. Just make sure you get them from a reputable place. Tons of counterfeits on Amazon and eBay. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is.

That car toys is just down the street from me. I'm at 10th and Lincoln. I may have to give them a call.

I've used NGK and Bosch in the past without issue in other Turbo cars. But, given the hassle to get to the plugs, and the fact that our CTT is now our only car, I didn't want to chance it with...

The only commonality between a 957 Turbo and 958 Turbo is the engine. Everything else is different. They're completely different SUV's. Honestly, if you're flush enough to afford a 958 Turbo, even...

True - but you can get home on one. You won't have enough flow for WOT, but it'll drive if there's enough fuel in there.

Drain cleaning - making a writeup and need input.

Water drains seem to cause all sorts of random issues on these cars, so it seems like good preventative maintenance to clean them. Especially if you routinely park outside. I was going to do a...

I think your best bet is to find another dealer. There are likely a multitude of tests that can be done, however, I don't believe anyone outside the dealer would really be qualified to do that. ...

Every turbo has lag, except for maybe some of the modern ones with secondary small turbos or electric spool pumps. There's just no way around the fact that a turbo at rest needs to be spun up to...

I guess. I've parted a few Audi's, and it was not worth the time/effort. I guess it depends on what you value your time at, though.

There are two pumps. So, if one fails, you can usually pull that fuse and the other one can get you home. That said, there are usually symptoms of a pump failing before it really bites the dust. ...

Probably broken. There should be a substantial amount of pressure holding it down. Likely needs replacing as I've never heard of someone fixing these things. That said, I've never heard of...

I'm not so sure parting out this car is really worth it. The inter webs are littered with used parts. I think parting out more common cars (audi, VW) makes sense, but I think there are enough...

No, I don't.

Honestly, the fact you're even considering a Turbo like that, and it's not obvious what value it has, I'm not sure a Cayenne is a good fit for you. Lots of other great german...

I would say when you start misfiring or having issues. Plenty of high-performance german cars with 200K+ miles and original injectors. It's not something I worry about, personally. I get gas from...

".....not come start talking about dumb stuff."

If you can't afford 15k for a Cayenne Turbo (car + money to sort it out), then you can't afford a Turbo. That said, if all you want is a Porsche...

I thought it was the other way around. Double stab shifts once, kick down shifts to lowest gear available (limited by RPM).

I think the trans itself shifts are pretty quick, it's the programing...
