Rainer's 78 SC "Club Sport"

Recommended Posts

Never been tempted by carbs then RB ?

 

(ps Your brain is simplified ? - I've just been on an 8 hour derivatives training course :wacko: )

 

Sure they are tempting but getting through the annual MOT and emissions testing would be rather challenging. Its bad enough as it is now. I think the future is EFI and ITBs but thats £££.

Hi,just thought i'd post e few pics of the SC's winter work.PMO's are now fitted,they have made a big difference to the torque through the rev range and are just as smooth as the injectors.Pretty sure i'll notice a big difference in my wallet on the run down to Le Mans but WTH :blush

I've had the fan and housing powder coated to tidy the engine bay up,seemed like a bargain at £20 for both,the quality of the finish is spot on.

Thought i'd also post a couple of pics of the SC's new garage companion.

Love the 993, looks fantastic mate :signs118:

Is that a 2S, or 4?

 

My missus wants a tiptronic one...

I think the 2S had the split rear grille and amber indicators, but loads of people have retrofitted red indicators....

Nice work Rainer, that thing was quick enough when you were kind enough to let me pax round Oulton last year so it should be sensational now!

 

993's very nice BTW.

Hi Rainer

the PMOs really tidy that engine bay up and dont they just sound awesome,I am interested in what size you bought and the jetting .My car is going to BW soon for a RR session as it has a flat spot @ 2 - 4000 revs the size of a football pitch

 

Nice 993 black really suits it

I can almost feel the induction noise from here, nothing like full fat carbs. Bet you'll be acruing the Nectar points at BP stations.

Must be bad, I swapped from FI to carbs on my 2 litre 912e, that struggled to get above 20mpg and you've got a third extra on everything. Perhaps you could be the first IB'er to do a LPG conversion :lol:

Did a rough check the other day and it was pulling about 15mpg :whistling:

probably drop to 10 on track.

I'd be up for that, but can't see me making 101db.I'll warm her up and check with my meter and report back.How keen are they on checking revs when they noise test-last time out at Oulton they had a guy hanging his head through the window while the other did the test.

They're not usually too strict on making sure you're at exactly 2/3rds or 3/4 revs!!

Though if they do get a bit overzealous we can get Tim to do his best Paul Daniels and misdirect the guy :D
