This should be fantastic, well done.

Am I the only one that is appalled by Porsche's workmanship and forgetting to bolt the pump down ?

I know it was "back in the day" but Just wondering if you had any correspondents with them as its clear you had proof the engine had never been apart since.

Anyway it will be a very quick car once done Thumb

Yeah couldn't agree more it's not great but hard to prove anything really without a fight. There were clear marks on the engine casing where the pump had been moving. I guess it could be proved that the pump was original etc. But you know what, it had done nearly 100k miles like it. I'm not sure any other engine would withstand a cluck up like that. I've not lost a single nights sleep over it and it'll be worth any heart ache and cash spent when it comes back.

For sure. Don't know about Vmax as it's £500 is it not? But TV is much cheaper. !!

£395 but you should do it IMO if you can. Very cheap and relatively safe way to data log your car as many times as you like. Thumb

Yes if you go to their Facebook pages one is at the end of March and the other end of April. There will be a few more at Elvington, Brunters and Woodbridge later in the year too as you're aware

You'll definitely miss the first 'TV' day as you'll be in Germany.

UPDATE NO.2 now added to the first page. As I mentioned before I have decided to do it this way so the whole process is together in one place.

Looking good. I saw it on Monday when I called in to see how my parts collection was. Matt said he was hoping for great progress this week on yours.

Good progress mate, you must be excited. Cool Cool

I'm eager to see your cold air feed solution, can you please post some pics of how you run the air pipes from the airbox to the turbos? I know it's pretty compact in there with the intercooler shroud taking up most of the available space.

Yeah I'm not yet sure how we'll do the intakes. Plan is to get the engine fully built up and dry fit it to see what space etc we have. I'll keep updating the thread.

Any further developments with your MC? Obviously you are being polite and letting Matt crack on with mine but are you decided on which way yours is heading?

No, waiting to see where you end up. I am not in any rush. The main difference to yours is that I will be going with straight gears and a guards LSD as I have a manual gearbox. I will be running a fabricated exhaust. The big unknowns are intercoolers and air feed. But I'll see what Matt comes up with for you on those.

I really want a lsd but it appears as though there is no solution for the tip box as far as we can tell Sad

I don't mind being the guinea pig!

Another week, another visit to Fearnsport. The engine is now fully built, all plumbing and wiring done so ready to fit. The car will be going on the ramp Monday for the engine to be fitted along with the new fuel lines etc. I have had to order a new kline exhaust now (thanks 9e) as my old exhaust will not fit correctly to the new turbos. Gutted to be loosing the 9e switchable as I love the way it works and sounds but no choice unfortunately.

I'll update the thread with pictures next week.

If anyone is in the market for a 9e switchable exhaust drop me a PM.

Another update on page one. Again edited the first post to keep it all together. Hopefully I'll be back in it at some point next week. It's been a long time coming!
