Looking great Tom! worship Smile Smile

How are you going to mount your cold air feeds? Didn't you before have the cones sat right above the Intercoolers? Do the Wagner shrouds have an inlet pipe for you to steal that feed or is there something else planned?

A very good question and not one I'm yet decided on. I do not want cut the ducts on top of the coolers. There are other cons to the fender intakes. It is hard to mount the cone without it obscuring the intercooler. Also you are essentially stealing air from your intercoolers to feed your intake (matts thought on it). At the moment I'm thinking stay mafless and fit a 997 turbo air box with a pipe either side to each turbo. That way the pipe runs are still fairly short and direct (no silly squashed pipes like there is on the stock 996 turbo to the rhs turbo). Not completely decided yet though.

Anyone got any suggestions?

I think GTR Nick may have fitted them to his 997.1 turbo when he built it with a stroker 3.8 like you.

One of the things on the turbo mezger that can be improved is its really not that rewarding to rev out. If you keep it between 4000rpm and 6500 rpm sure its devastating but there's very little reward power wise to rev past 6500 rpm.

A GT3 top end as per Kens earlier post with more aggressive cams makes the top end more entertaining and rewarding when revving to 8500 rpm.

Worth having a look at this vid.

Schrick make some good cams, have used them before in BMWs but have no Porsche experience with them. Generally considered a good company, with decent profile designers.

Hi Tom

this sounds exciting,look forward to hearing about the finished product

Matt is the man

Schrick have a great reputation in tuning for VW's the stuff they did for the vr6 was considered the best and their cams for the r32 are on the money,wasnt cheap mind

I am sure Matt has already told you, but if I was looking for cam's for the turbo I would go to FVD,given the complexity of the cam they arent cheap but you can guarantee they will work when I got my engine rebuilt FVD were really helpful.They have tested a lot of this stuff and have close connections with porsche. in fact a quick websearch suggests FVD are using schrick.

good luck

I put a schrick cam on my old mini. Made a big difference to the mid range (which that particular cam profile was designed for).

As DynoMike says they are supposed to have some great cam profilers. I wouldn't say my experience with them in any way translates over to what you're after though, but the question wasn't 'has anyone had experience on a 996 turbo with schrick sport cams' Wink

Following this thread with real interest mate, keep the updates coming!

Sounds like the way forward then! Matt seems to think so too. I'm going to visit fearnsport next week so will hopefully have a build update.

no experience with schrick other than their good reputation.

my take on the cam situation is that it will help and give you more area under the curve, but as IMI A says its not really going to help with rev-ability, i.e constrained to (close to) stock rev limits.

for me it would be go full gt3 top end or stick with stock blueprinted and mildly ported heads and with OE cams.

I guess it all comes down to cost, if that isn't an issue then go with the best components you can.

ultimately for your Vmax events as much area under the curve would be beneficial, so assuming the schrick cams help you achieve that then why not

After all the updates on Faried's car I am now getting very excited. Mine won't be on quite the same level as Faried's I don't think but hopefully will be enough to scare me lol.

Since my last post I have received the fuel kit and the intercoolers. I had a very positive conversation with Matt @ Fearnsport this morning. We are just waiting on the cams and then the engine can be timed, lids go on, ancillaries etc then engine in. There is some work to do to the car itself, running fuel lines, fitting of intercoolers, intakes etc. He thinks by the end of the month it should be back on the road. I won't hold my breath but am hopeful! I already have a map loaded on the ECU which ran perfectly mafless which will only allow spring pressure on boost.I need to discuss running in etc with Matt but I am thinking 500 miles off boost, oil change, 500 miles with boost but on springs only, oil change then the car will go up to Unicorn motor developments for a week to be fully tuned. I will of course have to monitor fueling etc throughout the running in process.

I will likey ask Rick @ unicorn to provide 4 maps;

0. Spring pressure boost
1. 1.1 bar for normal day to day, school run, popping to tesco etc...
2. full boost. Not sure what that will be, I'm thinking 1.6 bar for my turbos
3. full boost with methanol injection activated for when I line up next to Faried at terminal velocity Hand

I'll hopefully have some pics to follow soon!

UPDATE ADDED TO PAGE 1

I have decided to edit the original 1st post to keep the whole build together to make it easier to read for someone considering this type of build in the future.
