  1. I have the Paragon Koni kit (set at 75% firm) on my car and am very happy with it. My car also has the larger 968CS sway bars, larger torsion bars, KLA front strut brace, Racer’s Edge camber plates, 968 control arm bushes and lots of camber. For a street car it performs very well and is not too harsh. There is more body roll than I initially expected but it is still very enjoyable. After the initial roll it sets nicely into corners. Highly recommended. 😊

    It's $67.50usd on the website (approx $98aud)  freight is $38.50 usd (56aud).  My DME is only 3 years old & I have a working spare so I'm interested bit it would have to be a stonking good deal on the postage.  I'm sure the Yanks must fly their freight around in gold lined planes to justify the exorbitant freight prices they charge.

    The pump prime version seems to be US$77. Shipping for 3 of them to Brisbane is still US$37 so about AUD$18 each. Worth some consideration if it gets the big 3L lump starting faster.

    No Justin, Lindsey make separate partial harnesses for injectors, speed and ref and for other sensors.  Kroon harnesses do make a full engine harness for 944's (and other Porsches too), that is arguably better than OEM . When I bought my solid state relay I had to use a freight forwarding service as they didn't ship here, so might be worth looking into that if buy a few together as may make shipping cheaper.

    This ‘full’ harness looks pretty comprehensive (noted it doesn’t cover cycling valve)?

    Hey Brian, I have a new Solid-State DME Relay from F9T for sale. This has the 'pump prime ' feature.

    We are in US, but back home next week.

     

     

    Does the 'pump prime' make any noticeable difference to starting performance?

    @brian in buddina Let me know if you decide to go for a solid state relay. I (and maybe others) would be keen to split postage with you. Alternatively, I have a spare new DME relay I could sell you.

    This is an easy fix, i used the shiny tape with the original globes and it was amazing. The difference really is night and day, see what i did there:D

    Good one Tingy :P

    A note of caution, higher wattage bulbs produce more heat and may melt some plastic. 911/930 in dash heater control panel is a classic example.

    My understanding is that the factory spec bulb is actually a 3w so no issue with what I installed (mine were underrated before). People seem to have problems if installing 4-5w bulbs.

    Yes, your engine has a  cam position sensor up behind the camshaft pulley. The connection to that is very prone to disintegration as it's quite close to the exhaust. It's also called the Hall Sensor...

    I can attest to this. As Rob may recall mine disintegrated during some work. I’ve moved my plug/wiring as far forward away from the exhaust manifold as possible. Perhaps some heat sleeving would be beneficial.


  6. Quick update to this thread. I ended up going with the Clarks Garage suggestion (al foil and masking tape). It stuck down surprisingly well so only time will tell if it lasts long term.

    In terms of performance, the al foil made a massive difference to brightness. I could barely see my dash gauges at night before the refurb (not surprising given the heavily worn silver paint on the prisms). Now I can see all my gauges perfectly at night and the dimming control is quite effective.

    Final point - I discovered I only had 2w bulbs installed when I removed the cluster. I upgraded to 3w Narva bulbs (below the 3.7w max recommended by Clarks Garage) and feel no need to pursue brighter LEDs. The warm white bulbs are a better match for the rest of the stock dash bulbs too. Highly recommended refurb!

    I went a sign maker & they gave me some chrome foil scap with self adhesive backing. The backside, under the adhesive was chrome as well. Worked out well & no cost.

    Good idea Brian. I tried a sign shop today but they didn’t have anything suitable. Ended up getting some chrome spray paint similar to what would have been on the cluster when new. Will see how it turns out.


  8. Digging up this thread as I’m in the middle of refurbishing my dash cluster. What silver paint or aluminium foil tape is everyone using for the three prisms that reflect the light onto the dash?

    i have aluminium foil tape for foil insulation but it is only single sided so will be upside down/not shiny if sticking to the back of the prisms..

    I wonder if kitchen al foil stuck down with electrical tape would hold?
