I was talking to my mate this afternoon and suggesting if I cut any off it'd be the centre of the top lug.

Great minds eh? Grin

Thumb Was thinking I would leave two central sections missing in the rubber mount to allow some movement still with it being four separate inserts this may minimise any vibration, time will tell.

My mate suggested drilling a hole down the centre of each lower lug as well.

Good idea, that could be my next move if I'm not happy how it is.

I must admit though, I've covered about 100 miles since fitting them and they don't seem anywhere as near harsh as when 1st fit. New back boxes may have also added to the smoothness though.

Car's out of order now until I fit a new window regulator. Back to commuting on me scooter yawn

I found them to be fine with hardly any extra harshness to the car, I like the extra feel through the seat but I did get a vibration on the gearstick only at motorway speeds in 6th about 5 days into the trip which got annoying. I'm not convinced it is the mount yet as it feels like a cable may need adjusting but it would add to the problem with less damping of the gearbox. Autobahn speeds felt more planted than before.
It is staying on the car for the moment.

I thought it was time to resurect this thread as I had been too busy in the Summer driving it and it has sat most of the Winter with the occasional weekend drive out. I hope this thread will give me some impetus to get on with it.

I had a list of jobs that I had put on hold due to the first road trip of last year but some jobs still need doing and it is 9 months on since starting this.

Original list, still to be done in Red

Exhaust silencer (and bypass mod) Welded seams
CAT to Silencer clamp sleeves
Oil leak near AOS, (replacing AOS whilst in there)
Gearbox mount poly insert

Brake pipe O/S front
Caliper bleed nipple extraction
Front caliper seal kit.

Bank 1 lambda sensors
Oil/filter service.

Brake bleeding, again.
Clutch bleeding, again.
Creaky clutch slave cylinder.

Coolant weep, cover at rear of engine.
Powder coating underside cross braces. POR15 painted
Drilling disc vents


Added to the list;

New slave cylinder
New release bearing
N/S steering arm, inner and outer


I didn't have any success with greasing the slave cylinder and since wasz' thread it was higlighted that the plunger should have a plastic end piece to stop creaking. My new release bearing I fitted last year is also making a terrible noise so that will need to be replaced, I'm currently parts gathering in readiness.

I will update as I go through the above in the next few weeks and after the 944 has had new rear brakes, the 944 is a priority as it will need to be ready for Oulton Park RS Day on the 9th March.

Should have given myself enough time, this time, to complete and as it only requires rear brakes..... not an engine rebuild. Rolling Eyes

Although I do have a newly aquired 944 S2 3.0 engine currently being stripped ready for a rebuild. Laughing

More on that will be in the 944's thread soon.

You'll fly through that list infra!

Just don't your bleed nipple extracted by the guy that did Craig's. Grin




He charged him £50 for the privilege too. It works I suppose but does nothing for the appearance.

I always wanted a fettled 944 or 968 but never scratched the itch. I always ended up choosing an M3 or something instead simply for the soundtrack.

Your 944 should be a hoot with that motor in.

Are you running a baffled sump in the 996?
I've always said I simply will not track mine but I'm missing the trackdays and can't warrant a dedicated track car for a couple of years yet.

Not 100% sure it will go in the 944 yet as it would need a lot of S2 parts to get it to run properly but it came up cheap and running but in need of a rebuild so couldn't resist at £300.

Not using a baffled sump, would like to but as most have extra depth/capacity my car sits a bit low for that extra depth. I have done a few track days in it and really enjoy it on track but just don't do too many as I popped the engine twice on track and it works out cheaper to have a dedicated 944 track car than risk the 996 engine again.

I take it your gearbox is coming off?

I heard a rumour the release bearing is an audi part and cheaper to buy that way.

Also will you fit the updated 997 clutch release arm and ball pin etc? It supposedly eliminates creaks....

My arm looks a little damaged from the slave having metal on metal. You can't buy the old arm anymore, have to buy the new arm ad then you need the retainoing parts too. Mines coming from OPC £68 inc. I also got a release bearing guide tube £34 inc. I don't want my clutch creaking!

I will be removing the box and going through what I need while its off, most things you have already documented on your thread but I will see exactly once it's removed.

Unfortunately I bought the Audi equivalent release bearing you mention last year, £50, it's very slightly smaller on the bearing face that touches the clutch cover fingers and I think this now also needs replacing as it squeals like a pig and is embarrassingly noisy, I think I have also (probably) damaged the clutch cover fingers from the noise I am hearing?

I found a correct P/N release bearing from Design911, £33 delivered, I'm sure they have make a mistake with that price as it was £110 from OPC.

Wow! 2 engines let go on track!

That sort of confirms my concerns and everything I've read says the oil system isn't upto scratch for hard cornering on track. GT3s have more scavenge pumps so oil starvation isn't a problem.

As you say a dedicated cheaper track toy is the best option as cars do get an utter pounding on track, so it's better to have a nice road car and a separate track car.

£300 sounds like a bargain for that engine. Good luck with the refresh. Thumb
