Some vogtland springs. They are nice purple colour. They were also much softer than the porsche springs in that standing on one and bouncing my weight I could bottom it out. Whereas the porsche ones I could barely move them. On the car, it didnt feel a lot different, but the low ride height made me worry about speed bumps, so they lasted a week and I took them off. On the plus side I am pretty quick at changing springs over now.

February seems to be the month for spending a lot! Last year I got a new engine, which was a nice surprise after 1 month of ownership... This week was the first minor service.

I have also booked in to Centre Gravity for a full suspension overhaul and Ohlins.

I have also ordered some Tubi Style back boxes as my current Dansk have broken on both sides at the flexi joint.

March is going to be a good (But expensive) Month. Very Happy

Let me see quite a lot (not strictly this week, more so far this year)

Oil Service,
New rear discs & pads
Spark plug, coil pack, and shiny new heat shields
Finally had the split flexis on the Dansk back boxes cut out & new flexible sectiosn welded in.

Currently back having the H&R anti roll bars fitted before the 4 wheel alignment.

For my 996T:
IPD Plenum
74mm TB
Kline Exhaust with 100 cell cats
Some nice new IX54 exhaust tips
And a bit of a tune!

In short a 9E38 package tune by Ken at Nine Excellence.

As advised the car is transformed. Not only is there more boost but it picks up quicker. I'm back to, when I first bought the car, being too busy to look at the boost gauge concentrating instead on the horizon coming towards me at a pace.
Oh and did I mention the soundtrack Cloud 9

Thanks Ken, great job and a nice touch to have my car front and centre in the showroom, ahead of the GT3RS's etc in there, when I came to collect. Thumb

2003 Porsche 996 Turbo

All three radiators, both condensers, all connecting hoses and clips from rads to chassis pipes, coolant change (genuine Porsche) and every o ring.
This lot was ordered speculatively as the car had lost its aircon fluids, so assumed the whole lot was rotten, only to find that the rads were fine PC Aircon leak was from one o ring only Rolling Eyes

Because of the labour involved in getting this far, the new stuff was fitted anyway.

Aircon measured, regassed, oil added etc and fully pressure and vacuum tested.

At least I have total peace of mind now.

Just buy an o ring Rags!

You’ll be fine. Be aware that you need rivets and a rivet gun.... Probably a good idea for hoses as well.

Good luck old bean!

Anyhow, only 680 odd miles since last years and the best part of £800 later...

Major service, drive belt and plugs done at DW Performance in Wellingborough thumbsup

New original PSE back boxes, being fitted as I type.

Hideously expensive but I wanted to keep the car original.

This means that I will have the originals, which were splitting in the usual place, but not yet blowing and a more or less brand new pair of Eisenmann aftermarket valved boxes for sale, once I’ve got the car back.

Haha! I didn't notice the roof until after I took the photo! I did look at the light kits for them. Anyone else fitted them? Also where do you keep yours? The missus said no to the living room...

2002 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S

Recent expenditure for mine includes a service with 10-50 millers, a Center Gravity suspension health check (which showed despite 116k miles I didn’t need to get new dampers, hurrah!) but have just ordered 3 rear upper control arms, a coffin arm for the back and a tuning fork arm for the front.

Mum and Dad also kindly bought me an alu look fuel filler cap for Xmas, so that’s worthy of mention.
