2009 Porsche 997 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Thu May 25, 2017 10:37 pm    Post subject: Phil 997's new C4S pt2 - now collected Reply with quote

Today I collected my new Gen2 Aqua C4S with lots of mods on it already lol.
already calculated this will save me at least 10k in mods but there is still enough bits left to do for it to be fun playing.

So First job was to borescope my old car and the new gen2 , pleased to say both were spot on with no issues.

second job to change the oil to Millers 10w50 after a conversation with Grant at Hartech on the phone the other day about whats a good option for the GEN 2 his words before anyone misconstrues were "if it were my car I would run it on millers 10w50 " that was all I needed to hear.

third job sort the black struts and take off the silver which had been done already as they knew I was putting my dark alloys on the car. then change the alloys over and put my old ones on the new car front fits perfect with no spacers on it the rears need a bit more spacing so will take my porsche 5mm ones off and fit maybe 12mm or 15mm ones to get the stance right, interestingly the turbo 11 alloys looked nice on my old car and need 5mm spacers on the front but nothing on the rear .

Last job dont let funny guy with a dirty cloth clean the car at the indy, take straight to valet of choice lol.

Lastly fill with vmax and hoon home.

My initial drive and observations.
the gen2 is a very nice engine and with the mods if felt very quick , I did feel the power steering was a bit light and missed my 4" underdrive pulley mod done on the old car as that slightly stiffens the power steering and makes the car feel more controlled.
the exhaust is very loud on loud and just loud on off , love the crackles and pops you get with a manual over tip with sports exhaust.
No I didnt press the sport button YET lol
the SSK is very short and a bit notchy so I will be changing that to a GT3 or RS shifter with the steel bearings and slightly longer throw than a full SSK.
The CLUTCH well I am getting used to it ,not helped by the very short ssk

Notes to remember when changing from auto to manual
When on hill use handbrake lol
when parking use handbrake or risk running over own children Embarassed Rolling Eyes
when stopping remember to use the funny third pedal thingy or the car will stall Floor Surprised Embarassed
when trying to start a manual especially after stalling (only once in fuel station) dont do what you do to start a tip and put your foot on the brake then turn the key Dont know Surprised coz nowt will happen Grin
remember to do as car tells you and put foot on clutch to start the car Grin Smile .
when sitting at a junction dont be tempted to finally be able to rev the car and get a nice exhaust note Grin Grin Grin Bandit

Matt a lot of similar mods as I did on my old car but still enough left to be fun playing

GT3 throttle body
BMC sports filters
regal motorsports remap
cargraphics full race exhaust,valved with 200cell cats rear muffler Xpipe Delete GT3 centre outlet and tips

It's been on a rolling road and got dyno readings of 400bhp I need 409BHP to be more than the powerkit on a 997 GTS but know exactingly what extra can be done to get me there , There is a bit more on the induction, They weren't running it on VMAX and a few other things I am thinking about.
There are big gains in the low mid range.

other none performance related mods
lowered 20mm
genuine GT3RS front and rear bumpers
aftermarket carbon fibre GT3RS style rear wing
Short shift kit

There's probably other bits I just haven't found them yet

All in all its a very nice car and I am pleased with it, despite the extra calories used to use that funny third pedal thingy. Grin Grin Thumb
