    My 944 Cabriolet

    Yes a definite perk. Did you have any leaks in the headers to sort out before coating? I've read it's pretty common for cracks given their age.

    Sounds like a fair price for the bling you're now rocking.

    Looking good mate! Can I ask what Comp Coatings charged you to silver ceramic coat the headers?
  4. Sounds like a plan. I’ll be curious to hear what you think of the Powerflex black and whether they’re too harsh for the street. They have the slightly softer purple ones too.
  5. Interesting read Rob. I have often wondered how much variation there should be but have never done back to back like you to know for sure. How does the RS drive now with the poly bushes?
  6. Hi Tim I just ordered a set of the 968 castor blocks for my S2. They were $167 for the pair from BWA if that helps. Probably worth finding a cheaper used set if you want to put poly in them though. I might put Powerflex black bushings in mine when I wear them out. Could be a while though.
  7. Amazing looking example Sean. How many hours do you think you’ve put into it to get it to this point? That engine bay is a work of art! I bet Bruce will take the long way home each day.
  8. Thanks for sharing your insights Mark. It's always nice to read direct comparisons between models, especially from a single owner familiar with them. I think you came to a good conclusion too (though I might be biased)...
  9. Thanks for the shots WOKA. Nice to see a few fresh cars - I've been to a fair few of these but haven't spotted the 996 GT3 RS before. The F40 definately seems to get a lot of love each month...

    944 part suppliers

    My 2c: If going local I would recommend BWA Auto. Always very helpful and prompt. Paragon products and Lindsey Racing have a good range of products, including performance upgrades. 944Online have a good range though their postage is high. FCP Euro are excellent on postage cost and quick delivery though they don’t have the largest range of products for the front engined Porsches. Sonnen Porsche Parts have excellent genuine Porsche parts pricing though their postage is pretty pricey unless making a bulk order. Only944 have a small range of original replacement and upgrade parts. Parts quality is excellent, as is postage price and communication. Can’t recommend Kyle enough. What parts are you specifically looking for?

    Looking good. Can you repost your head gasket photos from your earlier post as they don't seem to be showing?
  12. Are you north or southside TAV? I've used Ken at Accurate Suspension (southside) for my last two cars and have always found he does good work. He does corner weight setups for a lot of track cars and knows his stuff. http://www.accuratesuspension.com.au/

    Shame about the head gasket Cabs. Probably irrelevant given the age but how many km’s on your engine? Hopefully will be nice and reliable once you get that batch of work sorted.

    944 S2 Exhaust

    I've had two exhaust setups on my S2. The first was a high flow cat and a FlowMaster muffler. This muffler is tiny and borders on a straight through setup. It may have been ok for a track car but it was WAY too loud for the street. My house would shake when I started it up and it had horrible drone. I ended up removing it and having Custom Exhaust Specialists (CES) fabricate a new muffler in 304 stainless. The new muffler was much larger than the FlowMaster but it still sounds really nice in my opinion. It is reasonably quiet at low revs and has minimal drone compared to the FlowMaster. It has a nice deep tone to it, probably akin to a Magnaflow which I've had on a previous car. Sounds great in tunnels too!

    Red 911's YES or NO

    Definately YES. I don't see the feminine side of things, besides red goes faster!
