  1. In terms of the bigger machines a lot of it comes down to space in UK (the south for sure), I have friends with businesses in the US and they penny's for the space that they have compared to what we pay in Buckinghamshire. The space we have we have to work out the most profitable use for it, rather than have an abundance of it.
  2. I have used both for regular towing, and it was fine, I did expect the front to bend up as it pulled straight but it didn't. Never tested from deep in the gravel though
  3. I have the front and rear Stuttgart classica ones, seem to work ok. They look tidy which is the main thing to me. Sadly my red paint came off pretty quick

    another replacement fuse panel

    I have a proper merge collector exhaust system on my car and no matter what we tried we couldn't come up with a decent heat exchanger design. There's a good market for people who have merge collector exhaust systems and want to be comfortable. I'm imagine of this works, someone like Tuthills would take a few kits for rally cars etc

    I think heatsoak from the engine is more effective 😂😂

    Oh yeah of course, the stock alternator Is only like 70amp

    Is there anything wrong with that alternator?

    3.2 Standalone ECU Project

    its this product, I just asked to make it 60-2 - http://ttvracing.com/products/?manufacturers=porsche&engine=porsche-911-carrera-84-89&type=flywheels

    3.2 Standalone ECU Project

    Progress is very slow sadly as I don't have alot of time to work on it. But some progress has been made nether the less. I dropped the engine so that I can change the flywheel, which is a TTV item, however I specified it be 60-2 teeth rather the their standard 36-1 teeth, I have only mounted it check fitment, but will mount it properly on new bolts asap. I was planning on using the 964/993 crank sensor, however I think the 3.2 item will do the job, and can always be changed later if its no good. Next stage was to tackle the Cam sync setup which is required for the sequential ignition/injection setup I will be running, now annoyingly along with the tinware having evaporated some previous person has crossthreaded the bolts that I need to use for the sensor, luckily 1 did come out, which made drilling and taping the other 2 easier, also there was quite alot of corrosion to the head which resulted in having to carefully flatten the mounting face back so that I can actually get a seal (and it to align straight) you an just see the reminants in the below picture. Drilling and taping the camshaft was interesting also, I have never done that before, and i was quite please that half of my colleagues prized M5 tap is not a permanent feature in my cam shaft. I did look at other options such as the Rasant products distributor replacement, and also making my own from the stock distributor, but I wanted the neatest (aesthetically) solution, and what better way than to hide it down the back of the engine. and with the cap and sensor fitted Again for neatness I need to use High Impedance injectors with my ECU and rather than using a ballast pack to make the OEM injectors compatible I decided to upgrade to this more modern unit. These are refurbed and flowmatched, and flow 314cc (plenty) as well as having a better spray pattern from the use of 4 holes instead of 1. Plus cheaper that the OEM I decided to fit a Fuel Pressure regulator so that I can alter the fuel pressure to get the setup right, and as we are a big Turbosmart dealer what better option that the FPR1200 which uses AN-6 fittings, and with adaptors suits the OEM rails/lines which are in good condition currently. with the throttle body mounted, I have refitted half the inlet manifold Next up I need to get the other side done, as well as all the fuel lines.

    The classic retrofit model certainly looks superior, they are very good at what they do, now if only they could produce a electric heat system that works well!

    Oil Breather Housing Temp Sensor?

    I don't have a fan on my cooler, just that sensor left unplugged in the breather housing, no connections on the loom either. maybe it was a replacement part fitted in the past?

    3.2 Standalone ECU Project

    Sounds a reasonable goal, Yeah that horrendous OEM maf has been ditched, I'm actually going to be using a speed density tuning strategy utilising a 2bar MAP sensor and inlet air temp sensor. I did think about using a MAF strategy based on a modern MAF but decided to stick to what I know best in the speed density method. They are very very good but not the easiest to use for a beginner. I nearly went with Link actually to make life easier as I'm much more experienced with their software but glad I decided on Syvecs in the end.

    nope engine is 100% stock as far as I know ( I have no reason to suspect otherwise), Power goal is to make as much as stock 😂 honestly I don't really have a goal because I have no idea, but I am interested to see how well I can make it work with a stock engine (maybe a set of cams at some point). Also I am poor and these engines are anything but cheap to extract power from, but it will be safe and hopefully the ECU and sensor will highlight the areas that need improvement to try and make it as good as it can be. I agree its abit of an odd project thats not the usual way people go about these engine, but it appeals to me and I really like the car 😉

    I'll show you the exhaust when I drop the engine for the flywheel and cam since sensor. It's nothing particularly special but lots of porsche exhausts don't seem to promote flow very well for some reason.
