So sure there will be some interest in sections of this project.

Essentially given a 140k mileage 996 c2. Sound car, good compression, no scoring etc. Goal - want to be able to track it and have fun, but still need to drive it on the road.

Car needed a fair bit of generally maintenance first like radiators, starter motor, actually quite a list, but let's get to the interesting parts.

Suspension
1. Ohlins
2. RSS Adjustable LCAs
3. RSS Rear toe steer kit with locking
4. H&R Arbs
5. All new top mounts
6. Few other general parts

Transmission
1. LWFW - only weighs 6.5kg instead of 13.5kg
2. Upgraded clutch
3. LSD

Brakes
1. Stock calipers are fine for track usage
2. Girodiscs - fronts are 340mm (stock 317mm) Rears 325mm (stock 298mm)
3. Braided Lines, SRF, Pagid29 pads
4. Increased brake ducting

Engine
1. Better oil pan for track usage
2. Larger intake and plenum
3. Full Kline system with 200 cells and Kline Manifolds.
4. Tuning by us

At the moment, we are just waiting on the exhaust and intakes, and then we do the tuning.

Will update with results.

Sounds like a decent project.

Not seen the larger Girodisc kit before, any idea o a cost for the fronts?

Nice project Ken, will watch this thread with interest, those discs look huge against the old calipers and something I have planned but with mods to allow fitting of 6pot cayenne calipers.

Do you plan to decat the exhaust?

Noted your reference to mapping, are you able to do this on the 4wd cars with in house software? I will need to have my 3.9 build optimised once it's running.

Hi Ken, this is basically exactly what I did for my old C2 except with KWV3, M&M exhaust and EVOMSiT tune, everything else the same. Ended up being a lovely drive, very compliant, lots of poke and lovely sound. Look forward to your updates.

Nice project Ken,

When fitting the flywheel do you balance it with the clutch as one package?
I'd love to fit one at some point but I know they create imbalance/vibration that the M96 crank can do without.
Omcebi know they're safe to fit it will definitely be on my list.

Anyway, watching with interest. Pop Corn

Thanks Ken - pleased to see you've posted this... can't wait to get it back now and get cracking driving it!

Sorry guys for the intro this way - I'm a recent mover to the UK (from South Africa) and a long-time Porsche enthusiast. I've also owned a 964 RS, a boxster 986 S, a boxster 987 S, a 996 Carrera 3.6, a Panamera diesel, a 997.1 Carrera S, a Cayenne S and a 991 Carrera S.

I currently have a 2016 Cayenne diesel and a 2015 991.1 Carrera GTS (having brought the GTS with me in my move) - but having permanently emigrated here, I decided to get a more dedicated track car and one that I could also use for club events, etc.

I also have done some racing in SA and have won and participated in some of the local championships - so coming to the UK with its abundance of tracks and equipment is a dream come true... ! Most of this has been in FWD Polo Cup and Production Cars however and I'm keen to find a decent RWD series here to join (was thinking Ginetta?)

So, the 996 was an easy choice - To me they're fantastically under rated Porsches and easy to mod, relatively inexpensive and wonderful drivers cars! I found a reasonable one (2002 996.2 Carrera 3.6 in basalt black with black interior) and took a chance (I didnt do a PPI but did a lot of listening and driving to see what the issues might be). I also knew NineExcellence from this forum and a few others and knew there was only one place for me to take the car once it was mine!

Ken has been fantastic - always keeping me informed, trying to find the right deals for me and making quality and valued suggestions along the way. I'm looking really forward to getting this back now.

I will also try post some pictures of the car (and some of the others from the list above)

Cheers guys - hope to do a more formal intro when it's back in my hands!

Morning Ken

going to watch this with great interest.

Can i ask you why you chose the Kline system over everything else on the market; I like them a great deal and have the whole system on my short list for the future - but interested to know why you chose them.
