Installed a bunch of upgrades on this 2010 Turbo S this week. mmmm shiny. Fabspeed X-pipe exhaust, headers, and intake. First thing we needed to get rid of though was the K40 Calibre laser shifter system. And install something that actually works 🙂 Funky angle, but the heads are mounted in the front grill. Important to get them level and even with each other. ECU was reflashed to EVOMS software for a nice bump in hp and tq. The old …

Had this low mileage 997TT come in the other day for an oil change and a new set of tires. The rear tires were pretty well shot by 10k miles, so it was time to get some new rubber on the rims! Pretty basic oil change, nothing to see here 😉

EVT750 Comes Home

Last weekend was spent instructing with the NASA Central Region at MPH in Hastings. We had a blast, and I think the central region is on their way to being a great organization for race and HPDE in the area. Hastings is always a fun trip. The locals are supportive, the track is fun and in great shape, and the entire experience is great. Blog has been a little slow over the last week or so. Little projects like oil …

When we installed the 2010 GT3RS steering wheel in the project 997TT, we couldn’t get the horn working.  I couldn’t even activate the horn via durametrics to test the horn, so we knew something was off.  After a ton of research, we finally figured out that the electronic control module for the steering column also needed to be changed due to installing a later steering wheel in an earlier 997.  Nobody had the answer, so it took awhile to figure …

Mobile service calls again.  Had to get the car ready for MAM this Friday. Started by changing the oil….. Unfortunately, when I got underneath the car, this is what I found.  Dried coolant everywhere. The culprit.  A loose hose clamp under the intake manifold.  It was so loose, that either it was not tightened from the factory, or someone else had been in the motor in the first 3k miles of it’s life.  The hose is stuck between two pipes, …

Knocked out a couple of cars today.  Had a Boxster come in for bank 2 oxygen sensors, which were replaced quickly, and it was back on the road.  Then it was off to save another stripped wheel lug thread on a buddy who was switching track tires for a trip to MAM. Then I had a 996TT come back in from last week so we could do some more work.  The clutch hydraulic accumulator had failed which causes a really …

Motons and WEVOs

Ohhhh buddy 🙂 Finally getting around to putting some more goodies on the 997TT project.  Under hard cornering/acceleration, Jack was having trouble shifting.  This is a pretty common issue in the 996/997TT’s that are tracked hard.  The engine shifts too much in the stock hydraulic mounts, which makes shifting a bear under those forces.  The WEVO semi-solid mounts will take care of that. Also time to install the Moton double adjustable street/sport setup.  Running about 550lbs in the front and …

Finished up our project 997TT kit.  Last things to do was to button up the interior, install the brake pads, double and triple check everything, and give it a bath.   We still have a set of moton’s to put on when we get them, as well as the stage 3 clutch when this one starts to slip.  Old clutch will be good practice for heel/toeing.  Off to MAM it goes…..,. Do orange and red clash?  Pagid Orange pads in the …

Well we finally got the rollbar replacement in, and after checking fitment of the 2 pieces, we got about installing it.  There are a couple of tricks to installing the bar: 1st:  Install the rear section, leaving the nuts loose 2nd:  Install the front section, and install the lower mounts first before attempting to connect the two pieces. 3rd:  Connect the 2 pieces of the rollbar.  You can shift the front bar side to side by tightening or loosening the …
