Its not too often I get to post a new thread but here goes.... I'm considering upgrading my exhaust & headers at some point down the line. Backgroud: My hotrod is an 87 911 coupe underneath with a 993 engine (3.6, M64/05). Currently, I know I have 964 headers & the exhaust is a custom job I've been told. Any good? Who knows.... Anyway, would like to get a bigger pipe, a better sound and that elusive 10% horses upgrade of course... I'm thinking a monty, dansk or M&K as they seem to have good "2 in 1 out" exhausts and SSI headers seems to be the go. But, I'm worried about buying an off the shelf exhaust as I don't know if it would fit. My assumption is that having squeezed a 993 engine into a 3.2 chassis gives me less room to work with. What do you think? Anyone got experience with this.... Do I need another proper custom job or can I get an off the shelf jobbie? Here's what my butt looks like now. The exhaust seems to only cover half or 2/3 the width. Should be right across to get a good full sound... I've been told.
This is a project I was fortunate enough to be involved with. It's essentially a small series of videos based on a variety of different enthusiasts and how their life/passion is influenced by cars, bikes etc. The work that's gone into these videos is amazing and I thought I'd get a thread up on here as no doubt it will be of interest to anyone interested in engines + wheels! https://www.shannons.com.au/club/video/driven-series-trailer-coming-august-2018/ Here is the final product;
I've been um'ing and ah'ing about this for a while now and have come to the conclusion I want another aircooled car. The Gem is a fantastic car but I dunno I guess I'm just an old school guy. Details. Bought new as a Boxster S from Porsche centre Sydney in 2001 on tourist delivery. Once the car was built it was sent on a tow truck to Gemballa for work then placed back on a tow truck back to Porsche to be finished and picked up by the new owner. Cost in the year 2000 was the best part of $300k. It's a factory built very fast car. In short 335kw/1280kg. The 3.2 is a completely built Gemballa motor with forged pistons and rods,turbo vario cam heads,Gemballa crank the list goes on and on. Gemballa gearbox is also built by them to their spec. Gemballa coilover shocks and swaybars. Gemballa wheels. Gemballa leather. Gemballa wing. Gemballa 3 radiator and oil cooler. 996TT turbo brakes and rotors. Anyway the list goes on and on so just call me for more info. The car has just clicked over 67,000klms and had a new clutch fitted 2,500klms ago. Drives as new in every way. Yadda yadda give me a call if your interested 0429eightsixtwo 534.
