Since we couldn’t install the short shift kit in the 951 without major issues, we decided to install it in his other 944. Nothing was broken on this car, so it went in pretty easily, lol. Elevate the rear Waaay up there is the shift linkage. New short shifter. Old shift assembly Annnd installed. We had done the belts about 1500 miles ago, so it was time to retension them (new belts only). Now he will be good for 15k …

I had a buddy (The Incredible Hulk) pull his exterior door handle off of his tow vehicle the other day, so we ordered up a new cheap oem plastic handle assembly and went to work, lol.  Interesting thing, is it was in stock at the dealer, so I assume this happens fairly often. It’s been so busy around here, I have resorted to working in the street…..The door panel comes off quite easily, 3 bolts, and a few snap clips. …

Had a buddy bring by his 87 951 to see if we could track down some quirks. He picked the car up off ebay, and now we have to go through a few little things to get it up to par. The car sports a turbonetics turbo, B&B headers, custom intercooler piping, manual boost controller, etc. Who knows what we actually have here, but it definitely needs some cleaning up. I took some time to reroute a bunch of vacuum …

Look what showed up today! “Fra-gee-lay. That must be Italian. I called my buddy Jay at Fabspeed earlier this week to help us out on the exhaust. We ordered a Maxflo sport exhaust. I have probably installed hundreds of these systems and they sound fantastic. Fitment is great as well. I still need to adjust the tips, I just ran out of time today with other projects that came through. Highly polished stainless steel mufflers with 200 cell HKS cats. …

After a lot of laps, it is time for new brake pads for the project RS. After talking extensively with Fabryce at GMG, he recommended brake pads by a company called Endless (or at least that is what the pads are called). We had been running the Pagids, and he recommended these over them and the PFC’s for stopping power and still being easy on the rotors. Rear caliper off to change the pads. On the new gt3’s, you have …

Aaron dropped off his 968 the other day because it died on him and wouldn’t start on his way to work.  He had been having some wierd hesitation issues as well, so it was time to take a look at it.  Found the bad fuel pump right away, and started tearing things apart.  Since we are in there, we replaced the pump, tank screen, fuel filter, check valve, and the fuel pressure regulator.  Once inside, we found the reason for …

Cleaning house, and realized that this post never hit the press!   Actually an August post I had written and must have hit the wrong button when I was done! Did some suspension work on an Audi A4 here the other day.  We replaced all the front control arms (all 8 of them!), as well as new tie rod assemblies.  The owner was getting some clunking in the suspension and decided to get it all refreshed before it got any worse.  …

Brought in a freind’s Gemballa 996TT for some maintenance 🙂 Never mind the skinny minny wheels on the car, they were only there for the track, lol.  If you haven’t read about Uwe Gemballa, he was found after many months in South Africa dead.  Turns out he was in bed with the wrong people.  Note to self….don’t steal a million bucks from the Russians and skip town.  Oil Change….rag stops any mess when removing the filter 🙂 Anddddd another stiff clutch …

Lol, had a freind drop his 993 off the other night to replace a noisy alternator bearing…..or belt sensor roller……or fan bearing…..oh hell just replace it all! I endured the scorching heat to pull the fan and housing out of the car so he could spruce up the color a little bit. Tim’s process is the use a high temp duplicolor paint. Multiple coats of paint, then you need to heat it up to cure the paint. So Tim uses …
