It'll take 4-6 weeks and this ( I believe) will be their first manual 3.6-3.9 conversion.

I've driven Tobias' 3.9 tiptronic. Plenty of mid range stuff that's not normally there. Laughing

It's more about torque than power. Lets face it, there's not much wrong with the 996 once you get past 4k rpm. The issue is more the flatter area around mid-range.

Hartech claim power is increased from 325bhp to 347bhp & torque 273lb ft to 313lb ft. The increase on displacement & torque beefs up that mid range so you're not having to change down as much when overtaking, etc.

That should be epic. Sounds as though they have the spec with emphasis on torque just right.

(Are we allowed to be as uncouth as to ask about cost?)

So long as it's just the conversion and engine parts (So no new clutch, AOS, etc.) I'd guess in the region of £10-£12k.
