I dont know what music @Thommo66 is into but it appears to be mainly rhythm and blues with his preference for music from an air cooled. Reckon he needs to add some heavy metal to his collection in the form of a Kline exhaust. That stock one his got lacks bass, tone and decibels strangles the mezger and doesnt arouse the Ecu sensors let alone your own.
@ Fraz, reckon you need to hand your keys over to @Thommo. His driving the wrong cars. Reminds me of my mate who looked at and picked up a car for me. He didn't realise what he was driving and what the car was capable of. Eg didn't take my e90 m3 over 4000 rpm, left it in drive and as a consequence thought the car was pretty tame for a V8. Would't rate a stock 996tt that great of exhaust soundtrack or instaboosting throw you back in the seat experience.
Have to agree once a boost junky always a boost junky. After the novalty of a non aspirated exhaust note wears off, you do indeed miss that shove in the seat whilst the only gauge you care about on the dash being the boost gauge.
I’ve actually gone the other way. I used to own a pretty sweet 964 C4 manual and switched to a 996 Turbo manual.
To go from one of the prettiest 964s to arguably the ugly duckling it’s clear I’m about the car and drive, not the “look”.
At present I am baby sitting a 964 C2 and have driven it back to back with the turbo, I still have no regrets. In fact it cemented in my mind I made the right choice.
Now to be clear my turbo is by no means stock, it has a lot of GT3 and after market go fast bits.
@Thommo66 I think if you were to get an aspirated air cooled car you would get bored once the lust period is over and you will long for that boost hit, once a junky always a junky.
