A silly little thing but for me to see what Baz looks like is great .. i often wonder who i am talking to .. a picture makes the conversation seem better somehow .

I had my 993 on the Hartech service plan for a few years (back in ‘07) from when I first bought the car ... Baz is utterly impressive to meet, both personality wise and in stature!

I love hearing about people taking the plunge. That's a tadge more torque than the 310 lbfts in the 9A1 DFI 3.8. Must transform the car! Cool

2009 Porsche 997 Carrera 4S

Gutted nooo nooo hate reading these posts. Sad my 997.2 is at Hartech as we speak, but it broke about 6 to 9 months too early and they haven't got the 4ltr conversion ready to go yet for the 997.2. So I couldn't have it ,so will be getting a boring old 3.8 back Wink on a positive note a new engine will have the full BHP a new engine should have which my 10 yr old engine must have lost a bit and Its getting remapped by Hartech's trusted go to mapper . So hoping it comes back with a bit more than the 400bhp I had got it to before it blew up. Grin good luck with the 3.9 I look forward to reading about the progress and outcome. Thumb note to self must ask Baz how much the 4ltr conversion would cost on a fully working Hartech rebuild engine in about 9 months time Floor Floor Floor

interested to follow this.

Mines still dead, sleeping in the garage waiting for me to decide what to do and save some pennies.

The 3.9 conversion is high on the list so may follow suit if it's successful and worth doing.
