Just finished fitting a cat bypass pipe myself and it was alot of fun.

Most of the bolts couldnt be shifted so i had to dremel them and get replacements and i also had to buy a new O2 sensor as I couldn't get the old one out. Apart from that It was relatively hassel free!

Good sound to - big improvemet on stock exhaust. Just rtoying with the idea of a cup pipe too now!

Go for it... you know you want to! And drill a few holes in the air box cover while you're at it!!

drilled the airbox the day after I got it!

Think the Cup pipe will have to go on the to do list ( getting longer not shorter)

Need to do the suspension

Respray and paint shield front bumper

Front brake cooling ducts

Xenons

Remove rerar wiper (hasn't worked since nov and I haven't mised it) BTW you know where i can get a cap for the hold in my rear window?

Then maybe cup pipe.

PS. any more pics of ur car Justin - looks good

To plug the wiper hole you need to get the 944 delete kit

Costs silly porsche money like 35 quid but i'm sure if you looked could do it cheaper. The part numbers are
P477.845.333 Screw (£20.96)
P477.955.439 Grommet (2 reqd, £1.17ea)
P999.707.301.40 O ring (£4.28)
P477.845.331 Washer (£6.13)
PN.011.118.14 Nut (£1.42)

Halford do rubber plugs but i dunno if they would pop out with the windows down at speed

Will, just be careful with the 964 exhaust... you may not be able to get on at noise sensitive tracks like Bedford...

The 964RS boys have loads of experience in experimenting with different exhaust combos on the 964. It may be worth checking out some of the info on the PCGB website if you are concerned about noise!

Agree with Daz it is a lovely looking car

I'm not sure about the LWF for my car as it's a C4 and I have aircon. I had it regassed not long ago but if it dies again in the near future i'm going to remove it - i'm assured that that along with getting the fan and alternator on the same pulley eliminates the problems of the LWF.

Funny you should mention the powder coating brakes , where are you getting that done. Thinking of getting mine done too. are you getting it done at a body shop or sending them off?

Remap and 3rd breaklight on my list too!

Damn how'd that happen my list just got twice as long!

Yeah jsut took it out for a spin last night and the difference is increadible (sp?). Don't know if I just spent more time in higher revs cos I wanted to hear it but the car seemed to rev alot more freely and go alot better.

Came back through the mersey tunnel too! :twisted:
2nd gear 5-6k rpm

Think I might put the cup pipe on hold untill I get another noise reading at bedford or somewhere.

These people seem to be recommended:

Think it works out about £80 - odd for each caliper. Multiply that by 4 and the cost adds up but you do get back completely refurbed and sparkling red calipers!

Thanks for that - they seem worth a go.

Cheers

Jeez my list also just got longer too after reading what you guys are up to.

I've got a G-pipe but still with the original cat and primary silencer, anyone have any idea if that'll be track legal? Sounds bloomin' lovely BTW :D
