Have not tried 2 step (yet) so can not help you there

But would like to know more of that car

More info and pictures please
The car was built in "92 for Porsche Cup in Australia and has competed constantly since then and is still log booked. like all race cars it looks good from 10 feet way but has battle scares up close. It came with 5 full sets of wheels including a set of BBS e50ís to fit the 934 flairs. My plans are to give it a tidy up and make it look like the Brumos 934. I wonít cover over the patina its earnt Iíll just remove the old brackets and the like thatís redundant from the car whilst refitting the air jacks and other stuff. A mate and I run a small race prep shop on the side of our normal jobs so for me its perfect as I love doing that side of stuff. Iíll get some more photos and start a build thread after I get the weekend Ĺ mile sprint event done and dusted. Nothing too hard on the car but a good chance to give it a shake down.

The tight LSD is that its all but a locked diff. Whilst you can turn the wheels independently of each other when you go to do a U-turn it wants to spin the inside wheel. Yes I have the same box of rocks you have. It shifts perfectly and works as it should but itís along way from a ďroad carĒ.

OK interesting. We had the car on the dyno last night checking the tune and decided against using the 2step. The tune on the car was pretty average and it looked like they had just ball parked it and done a couple of ramp runs. We picked up close to 50RWHP and over a 150nm of torque with nothing other than the tune. Started off with sorting the low end driveability of the car then did a couple of power runs. There is clearly easy power to be had in a more modern turbo, better intercooler and some bigger injectors but Iím in no rush.
I drove it home from the dyno and the difference is night and day. Granted it was a cool night but its massively better to drive and feels a lot more crisp on the throttle. I rolled it on quickly in 2nd on an on ramp only to spin the tyres so fast I bounced off the limiter a couple of times before I had the chance to upshift.
