Quite correct OC - only Mk1 CS had single mass flywheel. Mk2 CS and Comfort both dual mass, and if i'm not mistaken the GT3 RS had single mass.

I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Mk1 CS and was wondering how much Mantheying you've got?

Dunc


Hi Dunc, thanks for the confirmation. I made the mistake of spending a day at Manthey to discuss the possibilities for the car... but boy was it worth it! Embarassed
Had the following done on this trip (my car already had the 360mm floating Alcon conversion):


    K400 conversion (manifolds, cats, back boxes, remap)[/list:zNMYFRzmBp]
      Carbon Cup induction[/list:zNMYFRzmBp]
        Manthey KW suspension[/list:zNMYFRzmBp]
          Uniball strut tops[/list:zNMYFRzmBp]
            Cup front PU[/list:zNMYFRzmBp]
              Cup radiator cooling conversion[/list:zNMYFRzmBp]
                Cup brake duct cooling[/list:zNMYFRzmBp]
                  Manthey bling Wink
                  [/list:zNMYFRzmBp]
                  Gotta admit that the car is sounding fanbloodytastic... I never thought she could sound as good as she does... the return journey yesterday through Brugges was fun Twisted
                  and still grinning from ear to ear this morning! Embarassed
                  The increase in torque is astounding... even from low down in 1500rpm through the midrange, she pulls in 3rd like she did in 2nd. The combination of the uniball suspension with revised aero package (cup front PU + adjusted rear spoiler to max = additional 70kg downforce at speed) has made the car absolutely rock solid at high speed. Turn in is massively improved and much more precise and stable with the uniball setup. Manthey really are the best in the biz, and Olaf has carefully taken the best bits from the race programme and made it available for us mortals. Very Happy

You guys have to hear his GT3 now - it is so loud! Brugge was certainly awake, he kept me laughing by blipping the throttle everytime we went under briges and in the underground car park. That car certainly gets some attention!

Sorry guv, I couldn't help it!!! Embarassed
Narrow streets, bridges, underground car parks, how couldn't I? She's soooooooo addictive... Embarassed Twisted
Interestingly, the engine note is changing all the time as the system beds itself in... she sounds a lot different from the time I first picked her up until the time we hit Brugges, and even now when I got home! She's alive I'm tellin ya! She's alive!!! Very Happy
And I can't stop grinning!!! Very Happy

Sundeep - in terms of your financial/emotional dilemna - take this well intentioned advice from planet 'oldfart'.

If your 'ducks are in a row' so to speak in how you view your immediate and future lifestyle, and the upgrade car is not going to bankrupt you before you've driven it, then you go for it. Too many people operate at the extremes, either overstretching themselves stupidly, or just as bad, never 'treating themselves' when they had the opportunity for fear of what maybe round the corner. If you do it, and 'solids colide with the airconditioning' financially later, then it has to go - simple. But doing it when you have the opportunity, is always gonna be better than regretting the fact that you could have done it and never did. When the chance for the C4S came up, I went through the should I/should'nt I. A lot to do with the "1 parent family/growing up on a council housing estate/people just dont spend in excess of 40k on a car" kind of background I suppose, but Mrs H was pretty straightforward, go for it, and if we need to cinch the belt dramatically for any reason, then it may have to go.

Check your ducks and make a choice - it'll be the right one Wink
