Its a 79 and at least it gets me around while the 911 is in the shop (which is a lot)...it helps with my patience.

I was having the ABS and PSM lights go off a lot while the intake pipe was off....also getting error 151 on the durametric (hot MAF film)....it goes away when the intake pipe is back on as far as I know, but does that mean the MAF is busted?

So my mechanics called me and said they got the intake pipe fixed up...however, when they re-pressure tested everything, they found several leaks including the diverter valves, check valve and plenum.

This is not working....NEW PLAN

My normal mechanic is coming back Monday. He will be starting from scratch...turbos to the TB...to ensure everything is done correctly and will stay reliable.

Looks like these issues are 100% mechanical and nothing to do with the tune.

Thanks Scott (Softronic) for helping me along the way and looking at meaningless data logs! (I thought pausing the durmetric clears the data)

As soon as its up and running (correctly), I will post dyno / log results.

Also, thanks to bmoores, Markski and Dan (Vivid) for continued help!

Nothing to do with the tune? Did someone else say that in earlier posts?

OS,
Do you know this shop? Is this post the unknowledgeable owner giving false or inaccurate info?

No idea what you mean by your post NYC Tim...but anyway...just to clear things up...Steve did all the work on my car including the most recent wave of mods. He takes great care of me but had a lot of trouble fitting all the recent parts into my car. He had go out of town for a while as soon as he finished the install, so he did not have time to check everything out.

The other mechanics did nothing to the car except try to fix the problems that occurred during install...which is why I posted her in the first place...to make sure the other mechanics were in the right direction in getting the car fixed.
