  3. With much soul searching and sleepness nights I have reluctantly put my 930 up for sale. I almost hope it doesn't sell but i could really do with the funds, with all the austerity measures hitting hard! Anyway... I could always buy another when money is fruitful again! (that's what I keep telling myself!) I am going to list it on Pistonheads for now, to see what response I get, I prefer this site as enthusiasts normally browse it, not idiots who search thru Ebay wasting your time http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/2803245.htm Hopefully I will be back in the market soon.... I nice little SC would suit although it not quite the same as a 930 thanks for looking RR
  4. The 997 turbo has come a long long way since 1988 when the Targa was built. So many driver aids on the 997 inc PDK, Traction control, Torque vectoring and engine dampener mounts make it such an easy car to drive. I took the 997 on a track day and you just point and shoot! Whole different ball game with the 'old gal', you need your wits about you especially when the road is greasy. But it is so much fun to drive, you become really involved. The 997 performance is truly sensational, when I activate lauch control you have this really weird sensation when you seem to be in a time warp! I love them both.. it's like asking which child do you prefer! Both are superb drving machines and I have a difficult choice to make some mornings, but if it's nice and warm I normally take the roof off the Targa and take the long way to work! :mad jg:
  5. Congrats! I too have a turbo targa... very rare indeed, especially a 89 model, I presume it has the G50 5 speed gearbox Mine has done 30k so you have got some catching up to do and keep the Fuchs on, that's where they belong Post some pics soon!
  6. Thanks David for the info I will check it out
  7. Enjoyed a great few hours drinving around the Peak District at the weekend, glorious sunny day and fantastic roads. However my clutch seems to have taken a battering, that horrible burning smell! I have had the performance upgraded so maybe the clutch cannot handle the extra power and acceleration. If the clutch is on the way out, can anyone recommend a suitable clutch upgrade I will want to do a few track days and pootle around country roads so nothing to harsh to use all the best :mad jg:
  8. Ben I purcahsed the K27 from the US costs were K27-700 $1195 K27 Up Pipe adaptor $125 K27 Install kit $82.50 K27 turbo bracket for 964T $147.50 and yes, I had to pay import duty and and vat on top, the allow approx 20% for shipping and import duty, then the 17.5% for vat The dollar has weakened to around $1.60 so it is a bit cheaper now speak to Brian at Rarly Motorsports for more info his email is: brian@rarlyL8.com makes a huge difference to performance! cheers
  9. thanks for the info, i agree... i will replace the switch and test to see if that solves the problem. Also I will ask a friend to sit in the passenger seat and record the boost level, as I really don't want to take my eyes of the road when hitting high revs! thanks again
  10. Had lots of upgrades recently on my 1988 4 speed 930 New K27 Turbo and intercooler Rarly8 sports exhaust (looks and sounds fantastic) 1.0 bar boost spring new heat exchangers deletion of A/C The difference is incredible! How ever the engine was cutting out when I revved to approx 4000 revs Seems the cause was the overboost switch, we bypassed this and it has stopped the cutting out, but obviously i don't want to damage the engine. Maybe I am getting boost spikes which trigger the switch!...... any suggestions would be appreciated :mad jg:
  11. ...... just enjoy the smell first time you get in the 3.2... and absorb the noise as you start her up! something you will never tire off! Just taken delivery of my new 997 turbo! But I still and always will love jumping in my 3.2 have a gr8 summer!
