    Outlaw, Hot Rod, Track Day engine build

    Lovely car but 500k. Sounds ambitious for pulling together lots of great parts rather than a lot of bespoke work?

    That’s a gorgeous colour Jev. Minerva? Big bucks just the engines these days. How much are they asking for it if you don’t mind me asking? And what’s under those sheets? Lol

    3.2 Owners say Hello

    That’s why I thought mine was a private plate. How many 911’s have a regular plate that starts A911 lol. If you ever want to sell yours, I might be interested. Be nice to have a couple of A911 plates 👍

    Mines an E Jev so later than yours I’d guess. That 30k mile engine, tell me more? Would you need a G50 to fit on a 3.6?

    Cool. My 3.2 number plate starts with A911 too Originally thought it was a private plate but nope.

    I'd love to stick a 3.6 in my 912 and scare the crap out of the unsuspecting lol

    Sorry Paul Stephens. That was a bit harsh after reading again. One tip though. Bullet points! lol 🤣

    I really dislike the Paul Stephens adverts. They spend the first 200 hundred words talking about the astounding history of the marque before telling you anything useful about that specific car! #DownBoy! 😂

    Bloody thing of beauty that Jevvy. When cars get north of £50K, I start dreaming of Ferrari's lol

    I’ve never been down the upgrade route. Many on here have. One thing that seems to ring out from those that have is be realistic about a budget. These things are expensive to modify. The higher the output you want, the bigger your pockets need to be. Get a nice 964, chuck a fruity exhaust on it, pop some bbs rims on there and some decent suspension. Get it chipped n tuned. Live an easy life. Why start at 3.0 or 3.2 litres and head for 3.6. Get a 3.6 to start off with and miss out a few months and 20k or so of heartache. Unless you love that sort of thing of course lol There are a couple of lovely guards red 964’s that have just recently gone up for sale. £60/£70k ish

    That car has been around for months. Not sure why. Lack of faith in the seller for some reason. Phil Raby recently listed and sold a 3.0 for 80k.

    915 Shifter Very Vague

    Someone else said that. I’ll make sure I wear gloves, bin bag, mask..... or is it worth paying the £25 the garage charged me last time 😂

    Thanks. Makes sense. Read that it’s good to get the gearbox oil good and warm before draining it. Chucking it down this afternoon in Mid Wales. See if I can get on it tomorrow. I’m looking forward to seeing the old oil. Bet it’s right mankey lol

    I got one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Precise-Hand-Oil-Extractor-Manual-Pump-Fluid-Fuel-Transfer-Suction-Siphon-Tub-HD/302828642028?_trkparms=aid%3D555017%26algo%3DPL.CASSINI%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D53529%26meid%3D60c9f0e21cb145b5b2fe07f27b076700%26pid%3D100505%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26%26itm%3D302828642028&_trksid=p2045573.c100505.m3226. No idea if it'll work. Tell me, how do you drain the box and refill without a lift? I had my SC done at a local garage on a 4 post lift. Without putting it up on 4 axle stands and getting it pretty level, I'm worried I won't get enough or too much oil in the gearbox. From the floor, there just isn't enough space is there?
