  1. The interior and exterior look good. Typically the steering wheels are the three spoke ones, MY82 may have changed, it would be worth checking the vin. Worth checking the VIN full stop of course, that will tell you whether it's an original. Engine looks a little tired … suspect all the hoses will need to be replaced, along with a few other things. Least, from what I could see, everything looks original … and the engine is from a later model turbo.
  2. I have found that its important to reinvent the Porsche adventure from time to time. Today it might be about cars and coffee, tomorrow it might be about sorting out the paint job, next year might be about doing some track work. If the thrill is gone, sometimes its about reinventing .. and sometimes it's about doing something different.
  3. I reckon one of the hardest parts of owning an old Porsche, is that compared to anything new, they are essentially slow … tend to need $$ and don't make you a rock star as your pre Porsche owning dreams suggested would happen. So then why do we have these slow money sucking slugs? I think part of it for me, is knowing that I'm keeping the car alive... saving the artwork for the next generation. My little gift to carmanity.
  4. When I play the game "which 944 S2" would I buy, I thought this one looked very clean. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-944-1990/SSE-AD-6062031/?Cr=5 And at $29k seems to be on the lower end of the $ curve. Do agree though, few S2s to choose from.
  5. Yes I agree. Being the last of the true widow makers they represent the last gasp of a previous time. I feel the GT3 does have the collectability advantage of being NA, in time I feel NA will be unique in a flood of efficient turbo charged cars. That said … a CS GT2 .. don't seem many of them.
  6. Couldn't resist watching the 996 GT2 Clubsport that was auctioned at Lloyds tonight. Not sure if it reached reservce etc, however this was the final bid. Appreciate this is a GT3 watching thread however thought it would fit well here regardless.
  7. You don't see these at auction very often: https://www.lloydsonline.com.au/LotDetails.aspx?kw=porsche&smode=0&lid=1851799 For when the link is no longer functional: 996 GT2 with 28k km, club sport version, silver. 3days and 21hours out from auction, price sitting at $106500.
  8. The vast majority of 996.1 GT3s were CS versions, so I wouldn't buy 6.1 CS purely for rarity. My understanding is that with each successive version of GT3 there is a greater % of touring.
  9. design911 is good for most parts, particularly right hand drive specific parts.
  10. Rather than rebuild the distributor, I would send it to http://www.k-jet.biz/ and get it overhauled. I've used this company and service was good. The warm up regulator is the real brains of the CIS. Suggest you rebuild distributor and then buy a CIS fuel injection test kit and make sure it is set up correctly. There is nothing that can be adjusted with the WUR however they can be overhauled by KJET however I suggest you hold off. My guess is that as you put your car under load it is losing control of its AFR and either going too rich or too lean. The fuel smell suggests too rich, however that's verging on a wild guess. You may want to consider measuring your AFR, I've installed one in my car and it gives you some very valuable information. Also worth taking the car to a dyno ... not to measure HP, more to measure AFR over the range. Once you get your AFR set right, the car will run right. I wouldn't do that until you get the fuel distributor replaced ... the distributor is the wild card that you need to remove. You could also find a specialist. Challenge is finding one who actually knows what they are doing and is willing to work on a non 911 Porsche.
  11. Good buy I Good buy I feel Ant. The CIS fuel system is super reliable once sorted, however can prove difficult if not sorted. Challenge with turbo charging is that as boost increases the CIS system needs to move the AFR to a richer mix. As the CIS is an open loop (from a O2 point of view), there is no trim as per modern cars. I would: - Replace timing belt. These cars have an interference engine. Non turbo do not. - Install original fuel distributor. I understand it was part of the sale. - Look for vacuum leaks. I purchases a smoke machine for this task. If you have vacuum leaks, your car will not run quite right. Then see how it goes.

    924 CGT Copy

    Feel there are better 924s out there for that money. If I was going NA, I'd get one of the later ones as they improved galvanising and added improved road noise (by adding sound deadening if I remember correctly).
  13. Yes, worked well and was easy to install. If I remember correctly I had to remove the panel above the radio as well to guide the wires into place (otherwise radio wouldn't push in fully). Then I put the panel back. The item I purchased was: http://www.discountcarstereo.com/A2D-BKR.html Doesn't require any cable to be cut and is totally reversible. You do need to be able to turn your auxiliary port on the radio on, which you'll need your radio code for. Believe I purchased the filter from Jaycar. Sure you'll find one from whoever you buy the module from.
  14. I found when I added blue tooth to my CDR220, I had to add a filter to the power line as I was getting an alternator whine through the speakers.
