Evening All

Just sat with a beer reading the "What Have You Bought Your 911 This Week" thread and it's got me thinking. A lot of the mods mentioned or discussed I've never heard of or though my of - so, ideas please Thumb

So far I have put a front splitter on - looks ace. Replaced the silver rear S with a red S - love. Booked her in with Paul for a Gundo Hack in 2 weeks. Booked her in for 15mm spacers all around in 2 weeks.

Soooo.... what am I missing ????? Very open to ideas or suggestions to improve looks (external and internal), performance and sound.

Cheers

Dan

If its a Gen 2 then I'd recommend the Hayward and Scott center silencer bypass. Bargain for £400.

Gen 1 id replace the PCM with an aftermarket unit.

Also, either gen, H&R lowering springs will make a noticeable improvement to the stance, especially with the 15mm spacers.

Gummi Pflege FOR YOUR WINDOW RUBBERS IN THE WINTER TO STOP THE GLASS STICKING TO THEM

CHANGE OIL TO MILLERS NANO 10W50

COLD AIR INDUCTION KIT WITH BMC FILTER

LOW TEMP THERMOSTAT

ACF-50 Anti Corrosion, DO THE WHOLE UNDERSIDE , ITS LIKE A MODERN OPTION TO WAXOYLE AND WILL PROTECT ALL YOUR PIPES AND BITS HELPS REDUCE CORROSION .(keep it away from your brake discs though )

Those are probably my top 5 for all owners whether you mod or like stock.

The other things are all very much personal taste and I could give you a list of 50 things to do Floor from 4" underdrive pulley and IPD throttlebody and plenum to 200cell cats performance wise
and carbon dipped scuttle to full aerokit body wise .
and a long list in between Floor but I would need written permission for you to spend 10k from your wife before getting into that Floor Floor
but looking forward to seeing others thoughts and what a great idea for a thread. Grin Thumb

Note I havent even mentioned acid green accents in this post Grin Thumb

Not quite a mod, but driver training has given me more enjoyment in my car.

I'm not talking RoSPA or IAM.

It's Free if you simply watch Reg Local on YouTube. I got more benefit from reading his book, definitely a better driver as a result.

If you mean the ceramic coating stuff, It's a WOFT looks good to start with then doesnt get a shine anything like wax or some of the hybrid products . One of the guys down here has just had it removed from his car and gone back to polishes and is much happier with the finish. hard to beat good old fashioned elbow grease well apart from paying someone else to do the hard work while you drink coffee Floor Floor

I have heard that good driver training is worth more than 20 bhp in the real world, good addition to the list Thumb Thumb

I can just see Phil salivating at the thought of someone asking what they can spend 'their' money on!!

My only contribution to protecting the car is a 3M wrap, I'm pondering doing mine and will probably go ahead once my local Rapper has got a space in his schedule.
Spacers and lowering springs def improve the stance and looks, just look at Boba's turbo, mind you when I mentioned doing mine to a forum member he said I was off my head.

RED seat belts.... Thumb Ive already looked at them on Ebay, with the red S and Red callis i think they would look great. I am a ZERO DIY man so do you know A) where the best place to get em is and B) who would fir em - local Indy?

PCM swap - i will do it at some but for now I've just got a £10 Doosl FM transmitter which is really Great for very clear Bluetooth tunes to the radio.

Cheers,

Dan.

I had a quote from a local fabricators to supply and fit the hack with me removing and re-fitting the mufflers for £100. I've now found a bit of 1.5" pipe so will cut and shape the pipe myself so all they will have to do is cut the hole and weld it in.

Bought the spacers secondhand from Phil 997.

I'll mesh the front myself with mesh bought off ebay. Did it on my last Supra and looked great. Nice and slick with no surround around the mesh as it sits flush along the back.

Things like the lowering springs etc I'll fit myself.

Floor Floor Dan, OK a bit more detail from me.

Gummi Pflege is a stick of product avail from ebay , amazon etc. its a roll on and you add a coating around you door rubbers this stops the rubber sticking to the metal and glass on icey days the glass is the worst as it has to drop to open the door and when frozen the motor goes berserk and the glass wont go back up to drive away.

Millers Nano oil 10w50 is the oil advised by Hartech Its a thicker viscosity and helps reduce wear in the flat6 engine thats not very good at retaining oil so when you start the car cold your getting metal on metal with no lube Millers helps reduce this and it also circulates better to lube the parts of the engine that are notorious for suffering oil starvation especially number 4 and 6 which are the most common ones that suffer scoring on the few cars that this happens to but its a good preventative measure to try and ensure yours doesn't become one of the unlucky ones. .

cold air induction kit this is avail from design 911 and others its a smooth silicon pipe that goes between your throttle body and air box replacing the strange corrugated plastic one it comes with a resonator cap this and a bmc sports filter will massively change the way your car breathes if you listen to it its sort of a bit muffled and wheezy do this mod and it sounds some much healthier and adds a few BHP DUE TO MORE COLD AIR IN GIVES MORE BHP.

Low temp theromostat very cheap mod and is designed to protect and add longevity to the engine again recommended by Hartech for these cars.

ACF-50 Anti Corrosion in the old days to protect a cars underside and cables from premature corrosion the cars were waxoyled this did the job but was very messy and if you needed to get at the parts ever was a pain to clean off etc. Bikers were the first to identify ACF50 to help protect their bikes from corrosion as they couldnt really smother them in waxoyle. and it fed down into the car enthusiast market . its a cleaner more modern way to reduce premature corrosion under your car .

Hope those explanations help Grin Thumb
I would suggest that all 996 and 997.1 owners did those 5 things as a matter of course.

If you would like me to go into more detail re IPD 82mm throttle bodies and plenums, remaps , 4" underdrive pulleys , 200 cell cats xpipes, valved exhausts etc etc I can but there is quite a lot on the internet and this forum about the benefits of these and only needed if your chasing the locked up power in your engine. There are a number of little things Porsche do to restrict these engine to stop them getting to close to the flagship models some of this restricted power can be quite easily released if you want it to be .Some do and some are happy with the power thats there.

Grin Thumb Thumb DAN LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED A BIT MORE INFO ON ANY OF THESE MENTIONED Thumb
