  1. Thanks for the comments Phil! These are now sold on DDK pending payment.
  2. Now reduced to £2,600 ono. Also advertised on DDK. Ian
  3. Here is a bit of a taster of the event from Sunday including Porsche Speed and Hillclimb Championship, you will see a few Porsche's going up the hill including mine! It is a long event, but some very quick British Hilclimb cars doing about 150mph between the sleepers. Ian
  4. I have a set of AT Power ITBs for sale with 42mm throttles tapering to 39mm at inlet port, so perfect for 3 litre engines or modified 2.7. These were purchased by me in 2019 to go on my SC engine to give a little more power and better throttle response. The literature provided by AT shows a good increase in both BHP and torque. They have shaftless butterflies which are designed to improve airflow and performance. They are designed to be 'bolt on', but do obviously need a number of other parts to complete a conversation including a suitable Ecu, wiring loom and fuel injectors etc. Due to a change of plans my set which is unused is for sale along with a pair of ITG Megaflow air filters, TPS sensor and two sets of ram pipes to allow flexibility with installation. A complete set including ITG air filters is nearly £5,200 including vat, but I am asking just £3,000 ovno. Happy to answer any questions and give advice on parts needed for installation as I have been down that road initially for these throttle, but then for the 3.2 set up with Jenvey. Please see pictures. Details of ITBs are here https://www.atpower.com/products/porsche-911-electronic-fuel-injection-efi-individual-throttle-bodies-itb-s-model-years-1978-1989 Ian
  5. I may have the knowledge now Nige, not sure that I have the energy! I do have a spare set of AT throttle bodies, but they are more suited to 3 litre 39mm heads.
  6. Indeed Ian, it has been a long time since 2019!
  7. Engine fully completed and running and on the button with 280 bhp and 247 ft lbs to meet class limit. Runs well on road with DC60 camshaft which is slightly lumpy at tickover, but not a problem. Turbo Thomas 42mm race headers work well. Getting ready for first meeting of the year at Shelsley Walsh next Sunday with spectators now allowed back I believe.
  8. Sounds like the market for IB's has taken off since you sold yours! Good luck with the purchase of a new one. Regards Ian
  9. I heat the bushes to press them in as it is almost impossible without, but be careful not to apply too much!

    Bilstein dampers

    It may well be worth giving Chris at Center of Gravity in Nuneaton a call. I don't know what their current arrangements are, but Chris does a wonderful job of car set up. You can of course have your Bilsteins rebuilt to whatever settings you want.
  11. Thanks Clive it is taking a long time due to various lockdowns, but hopefully we will get it in the car before May and the first race 🤞🤞. The costs are fair, but should be worth it. The weather is lovely now, I am sure the car appreciated coming out of hibernation almost as much as you did😄. It would be good to see you at one of the events, I think the last time we met was Silverstone Classic. Thanks!
  12. Thanks WC I will pass that on to Richard!
  13. Further progress made, waiting for social freedom before getting engine installed into car and then off for rolling road session!
  14. I have had one of these for a number of years and it is surprisingly good! https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000XG3ORW?tag=sa-b2cuk-21&linkCode=osi&th=1&psc=1 Ian
  15. Looks like a great project will look forward to your updates 😄
  16. The document is an interesting read, and here is Mark Hamilton's response. Unfortunately the link to FAQs does not appear to work:- EGM An update from the Chair.pdf
  17. I have a Makita BTW251 that is now 8 years old and has been used to change wheels numerous times and I have had no issue with batteries at any point, but I always bought genuine Makita. It does not have huge amounts of torque (230nm I think), but perfectly adequate for normal jobs. I see that Makita now have a 1000nm gun at around £230.

    88 turbo backdate

    Terrific looking car Axel! Engine spec sounds exciting, should be a great match.
  19. Well done Peter, that looks brilliant!
  20. Congratulations Ian, I am sure you will enjoy the newly released extra horse once the running in is complete!
  21. Further progress made with engine. Clewett cam sensor fitted, camshafts timed, new set of stainless steel baffle plates arrived very quickly from Matt and fitted and case buttoned up. Now probably going with 964 lower cam covers with twin plug holes and Kroon engine wiring harness. Awaiting race headers from Turbo Thomas by the end of the month hopefully.
  22. I bought a similar kit off Ebay where they are currently selling at £35 and it will definitely remove a rear wheel bearing from a 911 as I did so last year.
  23. What do you plan to do to your engine?😀
