I had the first set of these in the UK!
I used the fast road inserts.
Really sharpened the car up, my C4 ones were shot.
It was during a back end strip down.
I also fit the strengthening engine carrier.

The first pair I got sent weren’t threaded far enough up.
They replaced them quickly with a new set.

I figured it was three mounts for the price of one as the kit was supplied with 3X settings and hopefully inserts are available down the line as an extra.

Recently had mine in for Service and MOT, always seems to be something extra to do....this time a hole in the silencer.

However thanks to Precision the new Dansk sports sound marvellous Very Happy

Just come back from a very wet trip to Southbound, for them to remove rear seats for re-trimming in leather. Will go and collect again when ready, lets hope the weather is better to enjoy the drive Cool

Tyre pressures checked and just bought mine a full tank of super plus and been for a hoon in the sunshine... Great to have the car out again after it's winter hibernation. Thumb

Any recommendations for a caliper refurb. Paint is looking dull and i'm sure they would benefit from new seals etc.

Thomas at Pro-calipers will strip reseal and powder coat.
he has done loads of sets for me and has two with him now.

Quick and easy to deal with as well.

Cost wise its not cheap now, but the finish and standard excellent.

Thanks, looking forward to having them fitted. What engine carrier did you buy?

A set of Michelin PS4s from TyreLeader.

Early indications are a smoother ride and an end to the brake shudder experienced with the (very old) Pirelli's.

The fitter really struggled to remove the fronts as they had hardened considerably with age.

Thanks to all those who responded to my posts during the decision stage!

New door handle seals.

Handle had to come off anyway to fix the lock mechanism (for fix, read lube) so thought the 20yr old rubber could do with a refresh.

Hi, it was the Rennline kit from design 911.
Local welder charged £20 to weld up.
Engine was held on axle stands while the work was done, wasn’t an engine out job but was an advanced strip down to address rear chassis legs. Engine seems more planted, believe the strengthening is recommended if you firm up the mounts.

^^ to clarify, the rennline kit is a gusset that you weld over your own carrier.
When completed, spray satin black and turns the single truss into a box cross member with added strength at each end where the mount holes are.
My engine was flexing about due to the shot mounts but once those and the carrier were addressed it feels a lot more solid. One point on the mounts, make sure the engine is lifted up against the carrier before tightening the mounts. It’s easy to be convinced the mounts are nipped up before they are due to the weight of the engine. I also coated the whole lot in clear dinitrol wax but had to disassemble and clean as the lack of friction just made the insert spin when trying to tighten.

If you follow Jackal's walkthrough on fitting the strengthened engine support please be aware that the captive nuts for the cat support (as illustrated) are the wrong way round and fit the coils before fitting to the engine. On the old support you could see signs of flexing at either end near the engine mount blocks. I am now catless or Fabspeed cats so not a problem. It's a good time to do the chain cover gaskets and stud grommets, powder coat the heater pipe and rear engine tin.

I’ve not updated this for a while, but a few things over the last few months:

- Powder coated wiper arms to remove stone chips. New wiper arm caps, washers and nuts.
- Original steering wheel re-trimmed and refitted
- New front PU ventilation grill and front PU piping L & R
- Front PU respray to remove stone chips
- New ABS/ABD relays (x2 original NOS Bosch found) as warning lights would occasionally stick on. Problem solved
- New standard gear shift lever
- New headlight lenses
- Tore’s HID conversion to replace an older HID conversion kit
- New toe arms and control arms
- New tappets supplied and fitted. Engine much quieter
- Full geo
- 48k service including transmission oil and fuel filter
- New a/c compressor brackets as the old ones were looking tatty
- Chassis legs attended to, to remove corrosion. Freshly painted and covered now in Bilt Hamber Dynax
- Just bought an original leather airbag which is soon to go for recolouring to black and will replace the vinyl one
- Removed the tachometer last night to investigate the reason for OBC not illuminating. Bulb blown but will do the transistor change whilst it’s out

It's like painting the Golden Gate bridge.

That is a classic example of what marks out a really well maintained 993.

Possibly not all strictly necessary but it's the kind of thing I'd be looking for if I were looking for a 993 today.

Top marks that man 🙂

Don't flame me I bought a universal diffuser of ebay just for a laugh. I've not gone Chavy at my age but it's just an experiment. The 993 with aerokit still feels unstable in side winds whereas the 944 is rock solid. I intend to spend my semi-retirement years in our new house (4 car garage, workshop and cellar) playing and doing what I've always enjoyed.
