Matt is a good lad, did the clutch and map tweaked on mine. Really happy with it, must get over to see him..

Cracking on! Had no notch the liners as the stroke was fouling. Was a while waiting for the chain tensioners.
Had to cut a new breaker reservoir, the old was broken.

Turbos are a bit of an issue, but will overcome I think! Basically i bought the wrong ones!

Bit of an update, pulled it out the garage and have it a clean down, hasn't seen daylight for about 5 years!

I think we can all agree, the most important thing about this build has already been covered.

Your green tag is present and correct on the PAS reservoir. Grin
The beards go nuts over that you know.

Seriously though some nice work going on there. You must be dying to get it back. Thumb

I changed the suspension for B8's and H&R springs, I saw some corrosion on the strut mounts, just minor surface stuff but I've treated it all.

New suspension fitted. Various new screws where required. I'm also 2WD now, so front diff removed along with drive shafts.

GT2 spoiler fitted. I didn't want joiners for the longer hoses to the rad, so I looked in the parts catalogue and saw the 997 turbo had longer hoses about the same diameter. Much cheaper than the £300 for the GT2 items, got them for about £25 each.




I also got some 10mm ally spacers made up for the bumper using the gasket as a template.

Finally, I just reused the existing rad brackets and just flipped the top one, fits fine.

Loads of brackets gone for powder coating. No fancy colours, just black.

Engine just about built now. Need new dump valves, f pipe and a few other bits. Nothing major though, hard work is done.

Matt's work really is top drawer, he's optimised everything.

Think this will be going once I get the Porsche back on the road! Been a great interim car though and I've been happy to take my time with the build

I just have to add cool garage/car port, cool GTR and is that a Honda NC30 too?

Good work on the hoses. I’m all for dodging the Porsche tax on parts where possible.

Cracking job on the whole thing. Thumb

It's an RGV, but it's getting sold this week, I need the space. Think I'll just be keeping one car and one bike going forward so I've got a 270hp duratec Westfield that will be going this year if anyone is interested. It's a very high spec and blimmin quick. I just hardly get to use it. Done about 500 miles in 4 years.

Best update with my gearbox choice too! So I was looking 18 months for this as I knew one was out there, a 997 GT2RS G97.88. I don't want straight cut gears as this is a road car. I have straight on the westy and it suits that, but it isn't quiet. So I can't run quite as much torque, but this is a stronger box with better ratios and a diff as standard, with the proper pressurised oiling and cooling system.
