I'm really enjoying reading your thread well done for documenting all the mods.

Certainly giving me quite a few ideas.

Great to see how things are developing.

Thanks for all the comments guys
Today i Got round to fitting the 911 badge today and think I prefer it

So a before



And after





I was tempted to move it further down as per where the 996.2 has it but decided to stay true to the 996.1

I've always been a bit against fitting a 911 badge but I have to say it looks really good on your car quite understated and is an excellent alternative.

Hi lee,

lovey car mate, some nice mods done there !! looks great.

I was thinking of getting the RSS under drive pulley done myself, reading your thread has just talked me into getting it done worship

Keep up the good work !!

Craig

Me too. ^^^^

A quick question Lee. I'm reading a bit about increased water temps after fitting Under drive pulley as it spins pump slower, obviously.
Can you confirm or quash this please?
I'd hate to fit my LTT only to cancel it out with under drive pulley.

Nice work with the badge too. Nice touch Thumb

The LTT should control the temperature. The only reason it will rise above the thermostat temp is if the engine is putting out more heat than the cooling system can disperse and the the underdrive water pump could affect that whichever thermostat you fit.
If you are driving that hard or in high ambient temps, I wouldn't fit the under drive pulley anyway.

There was a magazine test of the underdrive pulley including before and after dyno tests and they saw no difference! I think it was probably 911 and Porsche World, I'll try to find it.

Thanks for the info Mike. Thumb

Sorry Marky, re-reading my post I wasn't really clear!

The magazine article didn't find any performance improvement in their dyno test. I haven't managed to find it yet but I did read it recently in an old mag.

Ah right. I'll keep on reading until nearer the time I'm ready to buy anyway, as it's on my radar but not a priority.

So far, from what I've read, it seems like one of those mods that alters feel more than it alters actual power. A bit like a single mass flywheel maybe, as they don't add any horsepower but make a big difference to the feel and pick up of the car.
I'm in no way expecting a UDP to alter feel anything like a LWFW obviously. Wink

Thanks. Thumb

Can't remember where but saw dyno results showing they made between 5 and 8 hp at the wheels which I can well believe as I definitely felt the improvement
And added bonus is the steering felt slightly heavier
And no problems with the temperature at all (since fitting new resistors anyway lol)

Ah *****, resistors. Just reminded me of another job on my list. I buy all the parts when I find a fault you know, but I've absolutely zero spare time to fit them. Grin
Thanks for confirming the above and glad it doesn't affect the temps in any way. Also glad you can feel it. Always best to go off the "bum dyno" isn't it. If something adds a bit to the experience whether it's in feel or power, then that's a win in my book.

Cheers. Thumb

Expensive week last week
New MOT after having a cv boot replaced

And a suspension refresh and geo at Centre of gravity

I've known it's needed it for a while now so after the initial health check I was prepared for when asked if I wanted to take a seat before discussing what needed sorting!

A needs doing now and nice to have list was sorted as the full lot wasn't achievable in the day I had booked

So the needs doing now

Was new top mounts which were shot to bits


New bump stops as they just fell to pieces too

New tie rod ends



New coffin arms which are quite common to give up the ghost (didn't get a pic of those)

New tuning forks (or diagonal arms as they called them)



And then a geo that for once actually feels great and has dialed out the understeer I was getting when pushing hard

Overall while it was an expensive day I was present for the whole thing I learned a fair bit about the car its now handling amazing so confidence in it is back again and also got to see them setting up a ginetta for a race on the next ramp




And had a good nose round Chris the owners gt3rs



Just needed now are rear coffin arms which aren't as bad as the fronts were but are past there best and rear anti roll bar bushes

Some good effort still going into the car Lee. I bet the difference is night and day after that lot. Thumb

Gonna refresh all my suspension over next winter then get it down to Centre Gravity. It's a good 4 or 5 hours from us so will be an overnighter. That's why I'll change every bush and component before I make the pilgrimage.

What's next for you then? Any particular direction you want to take with the car?

Some nice items on your list. A few of those on mine. When I bought mine I thought "Its staying standard apart from fitting an Aerokit".
With all the amazing cars on here though and in the mags, I'm now formulating a different plan.

I love the CSR stuff. I'd also like a lwfw but am very wary on these engines.
That decision is for another year though.

Anyway I'm sure I've said it before, great car and great thread. Thumb

Went along to a east Midlands meet last night
and met some great people and saw some beautiful porkas Cool
Some great pics were taken by Glyn hope he doesn't mind me posting the ones of mine here
If I'd known decent photographers were going to be there I'd of done more than a quick wipe with quick detailer Embarassed

Clutch is just about giving up the ghost so while changing it for it's 3rd clutch in it's lifetime I gather the dual mass flywheel must be well past it's best now
So thought why not get a little extra go out of the old girl while I'm at it
So ordered rpm technics light weight flywheel and sprung friction plate



Turned up next day delivery and will be fitted early next week so will post up my thoughts once they are in
