Hi YK,
no time like the present an’ all that. I’ve quite a bit to do before I’m happy with it so have to get cracking. Very Happy

Hi Andy. That’s as far as we got unfortunately as we wanted to be back for the Moto GP at 1pm. We went Kielder, Newcastleton, Carter Bar, then home.
Yep those cyclists are everywhere now. Don’t get me started. I’m one myself but at the same time I can’t stand a lot of them.
Lots of issues with them where I live, a small scenic village. Me and some mates from my village who ride together all say we are cyclists but can’t stand cyclists. Grin
Anyway don’t get me started on a rant. Hand

Cheers Raggy, yep it’s a good one and has had all the right bits installed by the right companies. Cosmetically it just needs a little bit to get it spot on. That actually makes it sound bad. It isn’t, but it does have the usual stone-chips a 16 year old 911 usually has, plus a bit of gravel rash to the side skirts etc.
No worse than any other used 911 but after my mint resprayed C2 it’s not perfect.
Fine for now though and I must resist making it perfect. Very Happy

And yep I’m a sucker for a good history file. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the one for my car.

On certain road surface, at certain temperatures and inclines, mine occasionally rattles from "somewhere at the back" and I'm fairly sure it will be similar - around those relay trays.

I quite like it. Laughing

Ha, yep Digger I’m sure it’s a case of “They all do that sir” but I’m blighted by mega sensitive hearing so anything not spot on bugs me. Very Happy

Before I even bought another GT3 I told myself “Remember they’re noisy, so just embrace all the whirring and rattling etc”.
Here I am 2 weeks in with all the interior stripped out, on my quest to get it as rattle-free as a Rolls Royce. Grin

I need Help

Quick picture post. Not particularly Porsche focussed either but most of us on here appreciate other makes etc.

I haven’t done much at all with the car yet. It goes to my Indy 2 weeks today for a good look over and service before my road-trip.
I’ll get stuck in once my Indy has done his bit.

Anyway a few mates were heading over to a local car show near us called Bella Auto.
I said I wasn’t going but the weather was surprisingly nice when I woke up on Sunday and my wife (a teacher) had report writing to do anyway.
The car was filthy but we weren’t parking in the show so no big deal.
So I met the lads at our usual spot, the cycling cafe near mine. So it was 981 Spyder, Huracan Performante and mine. It’s this trio going on the roadtrip to Italy soon. Should be a good one.






We got to the show and despite raining all of Saturday it wasn’t a total mud bath.




Loads of stuff there worthy of a pic but I don’t generally take lots, so here are a few.

There’s probably a couple of million worth just in these 3.
I’m not keen on the finish on those CGT wheels mind. Standard is better.








Gorgeous P1




A few more of anything that took my fancy.








Lovely 430 Scud -






Some older Lamborghini’s. Looking a bit dated these days. 911s age a lot better but I admit to being completely biased.




Early Skyline -





Couple of cool old minis. I’m drawn to these as they’re one of those iconic cars I’ve somehow never owned.






Like I say there was loads of stuff there but I wasn’t gonna photograph it all. Wink
Decent couple of hours catching up with a few old faces.
We then took the scenic route back to mine for a quick brew.

The Huracan got pulled for no front plate.



Bit of a funny one though as the PC pulled our mate over for no front plate but then said “A front plate would ruin the look of such a nice car so I’m not going to be a tw*t and book you”. So we think he just wanted a nosey really. Fair play.

Back at base camp.




I love this thing. Has to be the noisiest road car available in standard trim.




Anyway, as I’ve said I’m doing bits and bobs to mine, not least trying to stop the brakes squealing like a pig during light use, but I’ll cover things properly once I get stuck in. It’s nice not spending the summer crawling around the garage floor to be honest. Grin

So like I say, a pointless picture post but we all like a picture or two eh. Very Happy
Cheers. Thumb

I remember seeing that white RS at the gorebridge show a few years ago and insulted him by asking if it was genuine Dont know he was spot on about it and cracking car. The lambos at full chat sound epic makes My turbo feel inadequate Sad really must get the exhaust that has been lying in the garage for three years fitted frustrated

Hi YK, yep that old Merc Evo was a cool old car.
Have another -




Hi Marty, thanks and yep we’ve sorted most of the rattles now. Very faint one from the passenger side dash speaker area still to sort but not bad.

Hi Freddie, ditto regards to your thread. The more experiences to read about and pictures to look at, the better.
Slower forum the GT one but it’s that numbers game I suppose. Less cars = less threads.

Thanks Graham and yep the Huracan is awesome. He has a yellow 458 too which would be more comfortable for the road trip but he’s itching to take the Huracan as he’s just got it.
We can’t wait to hit the road.

Hi Gary, yep we’ve always said it must suck to own a real 2.7RS or Cobra etc, as you’ll forever be getting asked if it’s a replica. Grin
A nicer problem to have though I suppose.

3 years to get an exhaust on?! Doesn’t sound like you. I’d be too impatient to hear what it sounded like.
Mine sounds nice on my GT3 but ironically with all the fuss over the hallowed Mezger, my C2 actually had a nicer scream due to the K&N cone filter. The GT3 has its factory airbox on.
Those in the know such as Wayne Schofield, say standard is best as far as Porsche induction goes, but I’m gonna have to revert to my old Max Power days I think and add a cone filter. I’m really not bothered about a possible small BHP loss when they sound so good.
Again though. Indy inspection and service first before buying trinkets.

Anyway thanks lads. I’ll hopefully get stuck into the car a bit next month. Thumb

Put some straight pipes on from CAT Back if your not fussed by a loss in power (low down torque) and want noise.

That would ***** all over any induction noise Laughing

I can finally post again after trying every bloody username/password I could imagine I may have used when I originally registered years ago!

Anyway, it was worth the effort Mark, as I can now tell you that I enjoyed reading about your journey, and look forward to updates. 'thumbsup'

Really must get my finger out with a similar thread on my 7.1 which I picked up in December..

I can’t argue with that. Looks a nice bit of kit mind. Cool


Hi Kingston, that’s too loud for me that. Surprised
Plus I have the full Cargraphic system on mine including cats and manifolds, so quite content on the exhaust side of things. That’s the joy with induction kits. Small throttle inputs and noise is like standard. Rev it though and it screams.
I’m not doing anything yet though. Thumb

Hi Dr No, thanks for the comments. I’m the same with passwords. Grin

Yes get a thread up about your car. They are good to bounce ideas off people on here and things. Best thing is though it’s just a good log to keep on your car.
When you look back later you realise how much you’ve done and see all the little jobs and changes you’ve carried out to make it your own and improve it.
Plus everyone likes a picture whether it’s a project, road trip or track day pic.
Cheers. Thumb

I have to add, that’s some lurking DrNo! 8 years from joining to posting.
Hopefully you’ll be a bit more regular now you’ve remembered your password. Very Happy

That is indeed awesome lurking !! Grin Grin Grin

Hope you're well Mark, sorry I've not responded to your last email, been flat out fettling the GT3 whenever time allows, I've clocked up at least 150 hours fettling the old sh*tter Grin My labours have however been rewarded, It's actually a really nice car to drive now, finally ...

Righto, update time.

What have I been up to? Not that much really but the pace is picking up now with my trip looming.
Basically my “Don’t pull this one to bits” mantra has failed me. Grin

I’ll try and put things into some sort of order as some jobs have blurred into others, but anyway.

As usual it’s just boring maintenance and tweaks so nothing exciting and again, these posts covering the run of the mill stuff are mainly a diary for my own benefit. They aren’t going to have anyone on the edge of their seat. Very Happy

Anyway here’s away.... I didn’t finish up covering my interior clean from last time, but to be honest I didn’t get as far as I’d have liked. I wanted to use the car for something so ran out of time. So instead of treating all the interior leather and seats with Gliptone etc, we ended up chucking them back in for now.
We also left the cage out ready for my trip.
I did get the carpets all hoovered and wet vac’d though.
Definitely worth doing to any used car interior. They never seem that dirty until you see the water. Surprised




Before




We also took the opportunity to tape down the old electrical seat connectors, to eliminate any rattles from them.

After




One quick Saturday job I still had to do was clean out the other 3 arches. I only actually “needed” to do the 2nd front one really to monitor the “misting of oil on front dampers”, which was an advisory on the previous mot.
So far there’s nothing there but I’ll assess it once the car has covered some decent miles.

As was the way with June it would be sunny all week when I was stuck at work but then rainy come the weekend. So one wet Saturday I donned my waterproofs and got the car up on ramps.




Craig bought the new ramps above (not a great pic to be fair). They’re only about 75mm high maybe, but are great to get the car up initially and they aid getting jacks under massively.

Wheels off and greeted with the usual wheel arch grime. I must stress this wasn’t going to be a proper arch detail etc as I wasn’t even removing the liners at this point. It was simply to get the thick off and also to carry out another small job while the wheels were off.

NSR before -




NSR after -
(The eagle eyed among you will spot a missing bung on the inner arch. I’d blasted it off with the hose. I found it under the car and popped it back in. Wink )




Osr




Osf




My car has the Manthey Racing KWV3s from JZM. I’m a big KW fan having had them on my C2 as well. As I always say, they ride really nicely and not crashy.




So once things were a bit cleaner I tackled the next job. Squealing bloody brakes!
My car has Alcon discs with Pagid RS29 pads. They squeal like mad around the doors but I don’t want to bin them as they’re very good.
I was going to swap the RS29s out for some DS2500’s but like I say, the Pagids are great in every other aspect apart from the noise.

I pretty much knew before I done this job that it wouldn’t do much as basically the pads are squealing due to being a few years old and not having been tracked much in recent years. If you don’t work them properly and get them up to the temperatures they’re designed for then they essentially go off and squeal a lot.
We also found the anti-squeal pucks are missing from the pistons which won’t be helping. They just come off anyway if you track them though, hence a lot of the track lads leave them off.
So we stripped the pads out, cleaned them up and applied some of this stuff to the rear pads faces and any contact points, including the retaining pins. Worth trying for a couple of quid.




Did it work? Kind off. Definitely better but they still squeal. Like I say it’s most likely down to the actual pad material now though, so I may stick some road biased pads in for next year. I’ll keep the RS29s to throw in for trackdays though, as I hope to do one or two a year... possibly.
I have one more thing to do to the RS29s for good measure before my trip though, just so I know I’ve done all I can with the existing set up.

More to follow. Cheers. Thumb

I have the exact same brake set up on my Turbo, and they also squeal like feck!

I’ve kind of accepted it now in a ‘because race car’ kind of way....!
