Thanks for all the kind comments guys Smile

What's next ? Drive it !!

Then over the Winter some further fettling :

First off removing the welded in front section of the roll cage, that'll keep me amused for for a good few days/weeks.

Get a pair of cats fabricated/fitted and then have it remapped.

Replace the flexible supply/return coolant lines to the centre radiator.

Re-configure the wiring/install of the main/dip beam HID units.



Tweak the geo/ride heights.

Look into options for reinstating the air conditioning (using either a smaller engine driven compressor mounted in the stock location but using a custom mount/adaptor if required (my preference) or fit an electrically driven item in the frunk, Though I suspect the latter would probably require moving the Cup EPAS pump to accommodate the motor/compressor package. It's doable, but I suspect a PITA and the compressor/motor package won't be cheap or indeed light.

Hi Mike, I've emailed you this morning. Apologies for the delay in doing so.

That black Mk2 is undoubtedly one of the prettiest 996 GT3's on Rennlist. It looks pretty much perfect doesn't it ? It's a nicely fettled car.

Thanks for documenting all this. Always interesting and educational as well.

Did you ever put those exhaust parts on scales btw? Your side boxes sure look very light. I just had my M&M apart and they felt surprisingly heavy for their size.


Hi Jarmo, I hope you're well ? I've not weighed the exhaust components, but having removed the silencers to have the internals reworked, I'd estimate they weigh 2kgs (or less) each. The Inconel manifolds are paper thin : Tap them with your knuckles and you can hear just how thin they are, added to which they conduct heat so efficiently, you can grab the primary pipes 15 minutes after the engine has been run, and they'll be cool/cold to the touch.
From memory the manifolds are 1-1.5kgs each (maximum). The X pipe/decat pipes probably weigh no more than 3kgs in total, so compared with the stock system (or the M&M/Europipe Manthey K400 system I have) the BTB system is truly featherweight. But as we know, stainless is a dense material, and thus not particularly light...

In other news, I took the car down to Boxengasse yesterday, I can confirm the fuel leak has indeed been fixed thumbsup

I have mixed feelings about Boxengasse, there were some stunning aircooled cars there :













But in all honesty it didn't feel particularly well attended (we arrived at midday, and seemingly missed the mother of of all rainstorms around 9.00) all in all felt a bit of damp squib, and definitely not worth the entry fee IMO.

I arrived just before you and saw your car coming in and getting parked up as I walked from my 944 (dark blue/orange stripe), I wondered if it was your car, I wish I detoured over now I know it was you.

That Orange, 993 did look particularly stunning and despite the other stunning cars I had the same feeling as you about the event, seemed a little subdued even though I was there in the sunshine. The missus was more than a little P'd off she got her new shoes so muddy.

That’s a shame, would’ve been good to have met you and had a chat.
I thought the Blood Orange 993 was stunning, I had an all too brief chat with the owner and congratulated him on a fine looking car.

Fair play to Frank C and what he’s doing/trying to do. Personally if I lived in such an idyllic place/setting, the last thing I’d be doing is inviting members of the public to trample around the grounds surrounding my residence, let alone have a bunch of Porsche based businesses on my doorstep. I admire his passion for the marque, but if had a 100 acres, any businesses would be located as far away from my residence as physically possible !!
I wish him well in his endeavours.
