  1. Not sure about the technical benefits given the 991.2 GT3 has a faster ring time than the 991.1 RS
  2. Not normally an issue as the TPS is (should be) spring loaded against the shaft to effectively remove all play.
  3. Could be a number of things but often on ITB it is small vibration of the butterfly shaft wearing out the idle spot on the sensors resistive track. You need to make sure that there is absolutely no movement of the shaft at the sensor when idling. Using a contactless sensor is a good idea for ITB. This of course assumes you don’t already have a contactless TP sensor. Cheers
  4. There is one positive that a car without entry and drive is harder to steal as the thief needs to obtain the key but with entry and drive a couple of $30 bit of electronics can get the car open and started. Also I found that with entry and drive if you have the key anywhere near the car while washing it the consistent locking and unlocking can drive you nuts.

    Pedalling to power the home

    As far as I know there has been no significant gains in the efficiency of generating electricity by pedal power in the last 80+years so I guess unlimited refinement means lots of $$ (other peoples) for a 1% (and diminishing) improvement. The interesting bit is how we need to live the lifestyle of over 100 years ago and be our own beast of burden. At least our ancestors were smart enough to have a horse/bullock do the work. Do the people that promote this crap live the lifestyle they preach? As far as MAMILs I will supply the locks and chains.

    Pedalling to power the home

    Stomach muscles worked well must have gone over three meters😂 I won’t be volunteering to wear the collection probe. But then again how bad can it be compared to what the government does to us.

    Pedalling to power the home

    By house they mean one in a third world country with a couple of LED lights and nothing else. As for CO2 emissions a human working hard puts out plenty. Connecting some pedals to a generator is not an invention. https://collection.maas.museum/object/210776 Sorry but after reading this load of crap I need to go and puke. Thanks Tassie.

    Porsche 991.2 911 carerra boost pressure

    Could be a units issue. 14.5 psi is 1 bar so a reading of 2.0 would be 29psi which is a lot of boost.

    DPF Remove

    DPF are good in cities for humans but a real PITA and even life threatening in remote locations. Even in cities you still need long drives to burn off the particulates to ash so a real PITA as well if not done. The ash will eventually fully block them requiring replacement. Also any problems with the injection that cause the engine to be a bit rich will stuff the DPF in short order. Just removing the DPF is not really an option as the ECU diagnostics will/should detect it is not there. You will need to reflash the ECU to disable a number of DPF functions or install a DPF simulator to fool the ECU. Porsche will also be fitting a Particulate Filter to its petrol sports cars. https://newsroom.porsche.com/default/en/company/porsche-sale-new-vehicles-europe-15574.html
  10. Interesting one sided grovel to the ACMA to gain additional spectrum. The tech is eaisly defeated by a small flat correctly angled conductive plate under the car or some conductive bitumen coloured paint on it. Also easy to actively jam the sensor. The better ones will use more than one method of detection.
  11. I would say about 3seconds with a battery powered drill should do it.
  12. Very good chance it would mistake a lot of items for a car. Would be interesting to mess with them.
  13. Here is one but there are others http://www.iemgroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Fiches-produit_PrestoSenseII_EN_2.pdf Once you know the tech used such as Radar, Magnetic, ultrasonic you can look them up separately as plenty of info around.
