as a new 991.1 driver I'm trying to get up to speed quick in all this new technology as my other 911 is a 80 SC..

is this the component you are talking about??
That’s a good thread - I posted in it last year lol. COV issues are such a pain in the 991.1. The GTS (or S w/power kit) has 10 COVs compared to the 8 in the base or S, even more to fail!

I had a 2012.5 991.1 S and the COVs were changed with a “campaign” in 2013. I still had two COV related failures after that, in 2014 and 2015 (I owned the car from 2014-2016). The heater failed and then later the PSE (Porsche Sports Exhaust). Once those COVs were fixed, I never had a problem again.

I also had a 2013 991.1 S with powerkit (owned for a a little over a year, 2016-2017) that never had any problems. I think that once you get the latest version of the COVs changed, they seem pretty reliable after that.

Thankfully, I have not heard of any COV issues on the 991.2s.
