    [VIC] #HANGARBANGER2 27.01.19

    Probably worth acknowledging Rohan Little and his team at Skunkwerks who were no doubt an integral part of the event being that it’s their place.

    LS1 GT2 911 Build

    ^ so glad to hear re the Fuchs. Was looking at the photos and saying ‘dang!’, but then the wheels... Image or Augment might do you some custom sized BBS ish wheels that’d go beautifully. In gold ?

    1988 ROW 911 Coupe for sale

    Steering wheel is an arrestable offence but other than that I love it! If I was in the market for such a car I’d leap at it. UK cars are no issue so long as no rust and you’ve been clear about that. You must be sad to see it go. GLWS

    3.0 SC engine build suggestions

    I’m told that from where I am, to get near 300 crank hp would require bigger cams and head work. Remember that’s from a 3.2 and how close to 300 is a guess until it goes on the dyno. I’ll do it, but not now as I’m still digesting the bill for getting this far. My car is plenty fast. Does good skids. Has a wall of torque but runs out of breath at the top end. Everything. Everything must be working in your favour to get 100hp/litre and possibly it won’t be as nice as a car with less power that is more tractable. Good luck George.

    Classic Retrofit AC Write Up

    Hey DJ, not sure I'd describe it as WIP. Essentially my situation was complicated by dash sliders that didn't work properly and an inadequate alternator. The car needs to have both as a base before the system will work properly. Mine is all good now, but of course the hot weather has now passed and seat time is limited. I think the decision tree is like this. Got factory AC? Accept as is, upgrade / repair factory, or go something different Got no AC? Continue on, install trad AC system, install something different I use the term something different as I don't know what the other options are so don't want to pretend I do. I reckon the Classic Retrofit system does what it says on the packet, is very neat and unobtrusive, is all in the front of the car, leaves the engine bay without a dirty great compressor. I'm guessing install costs are accordingly lower. Better than nothing? You bet. Better than your factory system? Almost certainly. Better than a brand new traditional system retro fitted? I'm not sure about performance but it's a lot neater and simpler. Are there other electric cooling systems on the market? Not sure personally as I've not looked. Do your own research but take a good look at the hard data from R&D CR has, then compare everything else to it, assuming the other options have gone to the bother. All the best.
  12. Dats true. Accessorise already!
  13. How much for all of them?
  14. Suspension is all standard with new bushes and updated rates so nowhere near that figure. G50 with a rebuild, shortened main shaft and LSD is probably $15k. Engine cost I quoted was a stock base engine pulled down to the case, new head studs, rings, 964 RS grind cams and all the ITB EFI stuff out in it. In my case the bottom end was done and has ARP bolts in the rods. If you needed pistons and barrels and split the case, the costs spiral. I’m not going any further as it’s depressing. If you want a mint car you’re going to pay and likely you won’t get your money back. Deal with it!
  15. I thought I was genuinely beginning to understand Symsy-ish, but I think I need to go visit @Fraz for some remedial lessons. What are you on about?!?! Early $30k I reckonz. Shit the Mrs saw!!!
