Apologies the thread was on another forum and you weren't on it. Isysman was though (as the OP) and having read all 7 pages now I'm surprised he's popped up here still say 620 but never did posted the "independent" rolling road video that was promised or any other of the other proposed tests.

So, for now I think I'll choose to listen to the advice that mid-500s is absolute top with still quite a lot of work; that little, or nothing, is achieved with a remap only, and little more with just an exhaust (and that by then I'll need an expensive clutch anyway)

As a result, for now, I may not doing anything for power reasons. I'll have to see how long I can last with the stock sound though!


Instead of challening someone, just ask the bçoke direct.

He's very active on this forum so put him to the test if you want him to prove anything thumbsup

I'd put my money on him Thumb

Wasn't meant as a challenge, he'd had a lot of work done which ever way you look at it. It was just a sudden to stop to that other thread, unproven, after a fierce debate, so I chose to listen to the majority. If it was discussed here instead, all good. Unlike the people on that thread I really don't care, hope he's happy with it...

Yes, why? It wasn't in response to your reply if that's what you mean. I didn't even see it between my two posts, at first. The timing was coincident.

Oh I'd rather not get into it, I'm not pretending to be an expert in the slightest. It's only my second 911 and my first Turbo, I'm just playing about with ideas about what to do to it. So far it's been the geo and cosmetic replacements of a few things that were worn/scratched.

It's easy to search for and many people gave him similar advice to what I got here. I don't know what he's learnt in the three years since (lots I'm sure, certainly more than me) because the thread stopped. I don't know who is right but there's a majority opinion.

That's fine by me mate

Just think it's a little odd, if you want to come onto a forum where a guy is quite well respected then back it up.

if you'd "rather not get into it" then don't come on here and say anything in my opinion but i'd rather not get into it either.

Good luck to you and your issues with him.

Are you a tuner or something? Whatdid he say that was so bad that you felt that you had to share on this forum?

Post up a link to back up the BS that you mention Dont know

He is some advice, are you not better off lowering it first, looks like your car is on stilts.

Dude, have you read any of what I've actually written? I mentioned the guy in passing in one comment when I got some advice. And I said literally twice that the thread was three years old which was why I was trying to drop it. I have absolutely no problem what the guy and you are turning this into a thing that it never was.

Hmmm, I don't know, maybe. It's the standard suspension right now. All 911s ride higher than I like, but they handle so great that I'd worry about messing it up.

If you are worried about the ride quality then go with Bilstein damptronics instead of lowering springs.

My experience of remapping the 997 Turbo

http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=119972&highlight=

I'm extreamly happy with the performance and I would defenately recommend remapping to other 997 Turbo owners.

Sports exhaust, 200/100 cell cats, sports filter and a remap to cap it all.

.....and you will be smiling like a lunatic

Beyond those mods(best bang for your buck) it can become expensive to eek out more power on any 996/997 Turbo/GT2.

If your clutch has not been changed in 40k miles(if manual) then prob best fitting the Sachs sports assembly as the extra power kills off clutches with less than 30% life left in them.

My bad.

I don't even remember writing half of the above Sad

I was on hol's and had all my 'smuggled' booze (half board Grin) to finish.

Not into 'boys clubs', prefer my own club...and one's where you can get a happy ending Hand

Anyway, apologies if I sounded like I was being aggressive.

I owe you a beer Drinkers
