  1. I've heard good things about Hartech on the grape vine. The owner (Adrian) owns a 944 Turbo to my knowledge. What work are you getting done Vinny?
  2. That's a really smooth dyno curve (well straight line really). Amazing how the torque is flat all the way from 2k - 6.5k rpm. Nothing like modern turbo engines. Only 5kw loss is impressive.
  3. Was a fun event but a shame about the rainy weather. Good turnout considering. I snapped a few pics on the iphone (no SLR that day) if anybody wants me to post them. It was the usual suspects, although I think I saw Jason's new S2 out for the first time?
  4. Hi Trev, what would you estimate the weight and depth to be per sign? Do you have a photo of the rear of the sign showing the aluminium frame? I'm just trying to see if it would be feasible to courier one sign cut in two pieces (assuming you'd consider this option).
  5. I'm doing up my garage at the moment and this would be perfect. I wonder how much to courier to Brisbane if I only wanted the 3m 'Porsche' side hmm..Anybody want the 'Mobil1' side?
  6. Fantastic pics Chris and Timm! Great to see your car is back in action reliably Chris. The TE37 wheels and splitter really suit the car too.

    Really interested to hear your thoughts on the VEMS as you get to drive your car a bit more Bruce. As far as I know you're the first Australian owner to be running the VEMS ECU. Did you notice the response improve with autotune compared to your factory DME setup?
  8. Thanks for digging up that Rennlist thread Timm. I knew I had read about a high output NA somewhere! If it's the car I'm thinking of it sounds mental at full noise (check youtube). My NA pick is the S2 body with the 968 engine and 6 speed.
  9. I read on Rennlist that a stock S2 with a modern VEMS ECU upgrade put down 207rwhp and 270rwnm. You could probably add an exhaust, more aggressive cam etc and make a little more NA power but it would likely bump the torque further up the rev range affecting drivability. I agree the best way to go would be forced induction. That or drop a big LS V8 under the bonnet like Chris did.
  10. Totally agree. Porsche is one of the premier sports car brands and to not have them in the majority of racing games for the last decade is a crying shame. It's really telling when you see the excitement of a Porsche pack in Assetto Corsa. I know I'm loving driving the 911 RSR around the ring. It sounds and drives amazing. I found a 944 Turbo mod to add to the game too. Not quite the same calibre but still very entertaining. Even the Panamera and SUV's are worth sampling for a 'test drive'.
  11. I've been using Duragloss Aquawax for many years and it's similar to the Autoglym. Works really well if your car is still a little damp after washing. Highly recommended, if just for the coconut banana smell haha. Their car shampoo smells like cherries. ?
  12. Crossing my fingers for this too. This could do wonders to raise the profile of Porsche for the masses.
  13. I share your thoughts on this. The 944 and 928 have been the only 'practical' Porsches I'll consider as they have four seats and a decent rear boot. I'd love a more modern Cayman but it's lacking 2 seats and a boot...and then it wouldn't be a sublime mid-engined sports car anymore. The one segment of the modern Porsche lineup that I wish Porsche would tap into again is a small front engined sports car with four seats and a proper boot. This is where BMW, Audi, Merc etc have the practicality market edge.
  14. Thanks mate That's exactly how I felt. I spotted a bunch of cool cars on my arrival but they disappeared a few minutes later before I could get down the road with the camera. Have to be quick! Thanks mate Totally agree re the RWB car. Amazing to see one in person. It had such presence on the road when leaving. That rear end! Will keep an eye out for you next month Rob. Your car looked great with the KW's. Thanks Woka. Looking forward to the 2017 events!
  15. Haha that sounds like quite the read. A novel version of Top Gear's 'affordable car challenge' across an inhospitable land...
  16. Ok here's my batch of Porsche photos, plus a few quirky cars worth posting. I took 230 odd photos on the day and didn't even get close to capturing half of what showed up. A great mix of cars there and great to see so many of Stuttgart's finest out and about.
  17. Thanks for posting. Will have a read.
  18. I agree it's really fascinating stuff. There is still life left in the old internal combustion (ie non electric) engines yet! I recently read that Koenigsegg has sold its Freevalve tech to a chinese company. Cross fingers we see some cars hit the market with the tech soon...
  19. Congrats Jason. Looking forward to seeing some pics. The Buchanans will set you in the right direction! PS - I recall from the advertisement photos that the original seats looked a little worse for wear. There are a few decent 944/911 seat pairs on Gumtree that you could consider if you don't want to reupholster the originals.
  20. Just bumping this thread. I recently picked up Porsche Pack 1 and it is great fun. Happy laps round the Nordschleife in the 991.2 Carrera S is a blast! Will need to have a crack at that RSR time.
  21. So it is definately sold? Wow you need to be quick these days. I contacted the seller within 15mins of the ad going live but never even got the courtesy of a response. FYI - It was originally listed at $9,600. If the mechanicals are sound then an interior refresh and freshly painted cam cover could bring it back to scratch. Will be keen to hear the details from the new owner. :)
  22. Does anyone know anything about this silver S2 for sale? http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/greenacre/cars-vans-utes/1991-porsche-944-coupe/1130061518 I've been trying to contact the seller without success from the first half hour of it being listed. Any Sydney members want to go take a look at it for me (assuming you can make contact with the seller)?
