Speaking of TBV.  How much should I expect to pay for a replacement valve??
I went by the Porsche dealer today to try and get a price on the 996 TBV,
but I could not find the correct translation for what I needed.  (I am in
Germany)  They thought I meant the Turbo Wastegate.  So I went next door to
the Audi dealer and asked the same thing.  He looked on ETKA, but could not
find it.  He finally came out to my car and looked at where the part was and
found it that way.  I got a price of around $35 from Audi for the stock 3B
TBV.  He didn't write the word down for me in German, so I didn't check back
with Porsche.
