Have been looking on the JZ Machtec site at their power upgrades for the 993 (varioram), sports exhaust / filter, and motronic box for an increase of 25 bhp.

Has anyone had this, or similar, done to their 993 and if so does it provide a noticeable increase in performance over a standard car?


Migration info. Legacy thread was 7992
 
How boring is work today.
Paint drying?
Kate Price yakking
etc etc.

BOr or ring

I've resorted to dragging up a thread from 2003.
There a skellington over a pc waiting somewhere for a reply.
His 993's still rock solid tho.

So, in some kind of homage [omm-ar-sher] to the tuneability of the 993, who's got an answer ?

The 3.8 engine upgrade was 10 grande from the factory.
 
Bored? :D Upgrades? Take a look at THIS, detail work is stunning!
 
Zuffs, that car is CRAZY!!!, huge use of carbon fibre, love the rear swing arms but WTF is with that interior :eek:

However agree the quality is there, seems wierd though installing all those performance parts onto a Tip :dont know:

:D :D Have to agree there Trev, attention to detail is stunning but interior design is somewhat lacking, :grin: but boy would I love to have access to some of that gear without re-mortgaging the house.

:eek: Can you even begin to estimate how much all that carbon cost???


Regards to the OP, I took my car to JZM a year or so ago.
Steve Mchale was basically telling me that trying to get power from a 993
was a waste of time :eek:

3.8 conversion, cup cams, RS inlet stubs, chip, etc etc & I might be lucky
& see 315hp!!! :eh!:
Not bad for a bill of 11k !!
 
I am thinking of taking a trip up to see Wayne Schofield, Sheffield way, who does very good things with the 993 engine, especailly the non-varioram version....sorry....can't give you figures but I have heard it gives more grunt above 4K revs and suprislingly better fuel economy. He has a very good reputation and it doesn't cost the earth......got to be worth a punt.

Word of advise, don't forget dyno figures before & after :thumb:
 
......I am pretty sure he does that as in par for the course.....I have heard he spends a good few hours on ones car...I have only ever heard good reports.....
 
I would be interested in doing the chip later this year. Before June would be nice.

FYI, the last one was adding the K&N filter.

A trip to Wayne is well worth it in my view.

So you must really notice mid-range torque??? Plus throttle responce???

It's not a chip mate, it's your existing one that gets manipulated :D

Very true, I have been calling it a chip for the last 20 years, since the R5 and GTRiR,GTi days!!!
