Chaps, just got my car back, fully serviced, all leaks checked. Car still has the same symptoms. Mech still says it is the fuel pump. he has ordered one from our host. (Parts for older Porsches are not readily available in singapore). Lets hope he is right!

Feel a little frustrated, not been able to drive the 930 properly since I got it.

did you get a change to call Andy? a second opinion is always good, especially when you now have to purchase a very expensive part, and have it shipped around the world. Well actually it may have to be shipped around the world twice, b/c Pelican may need to get it directly from Germany. Andy may also have a spare pump to test the issue with. Many other expensive parts could be causeing this problem as well.

Hi All,

Quick update, met up with Andy, great guy, as everyone suspected, he feels it was a boost leak as well. Will be sending my car in early next week as I will be in Vegas and NY for work.

On a side note, Andy did mention that he remembered the car having "Turbo S" spec engine. He could not confirm it, but will check when he takes my car in. I know it produced a bit more power, but what was done to these to give them the extra power?

Thanks all

Prithvi

930 is back to being perfect

Hi all,

Left my car with Andy at Flatsix in Singapore for slightly more than a week, while I was in NY on work.

Just collected it and it is running perfect, bill was very reasonable.

Any 911 owners in Singapore, thumbs up for Andy at Flatsix.

Cheers

Hi,
So what was wrong with it, don't keep us in suspense?

Hi,

It was a boost leak, as most had suspected.

Now, thinking of what to do next?

Cheers

Tell me about it mate. Feel so relieved, first time I have felt the boost of the 930 since I got the car. Feels so awesome, almost addictive. BRUTAL acceleration once the turbo kicks in.

But as is the case with most other 930 owners, wondering what to do next, wish there is something to do (with budget constraints) that would minimise the lag.

Any advice is welcome.

Cheers

Glad to hear you got to the bottom to the problem without spending too much money.

Do "safe" upgrades to start. upgrades that will support, and allow more aggressive upgrades later. Remebering the climate in SG, you will probably want to start with an intercooler, that will allow you to upgrade the turbo/wastegate spring later on. You really cant get too aggressive until you get inside the case, and swap out the rod bolts for something stronger like ARP bolts.

Headers would be another route. Its the best way to get rid of some lag, but is the most expensive upgrade on these cars

This is almost exactly what andy recommended, Intercooler and headers. He also did mention a 5 speed trans swap, but I recon that is too expensive for me right now ... might be on the cards at a later date

Cheers

your looking at big dollors for a 5 speed swap. not only is the tranny expensive, you will have to get it shipped in. then you will have to pay labor to cut out the old torsion tubes and fit it. after that you will need a new rear suspension, probably coil overs.

it is a great upgrade, but very expensive. start with headers and intercooler. it will not only bring new life to your car, it will make it safer for more upgrades later on.

Interior Shots

Hi Chaps,

Just thought I would attach some interior shots of the car. It is just as loud as the exterior.

wow...that sound system is no joke. I wish my previous owner had done that. he was a simple man who just listened to the engine. I on the other hand, need a bit more...

To be honest, I would have been happy with just a simple stereo. He did spend a lot of $$ on it, but it is a waste IMHO. All the components are made by PHD Audiophile, supposedly really high end (http://www.phd.it/) what little space the 911s had in the front is completely gone, with the amps and all the wiring, the rear seats cannot be used, even by small kids, it adds so much weight, and most importantly you cannot fully appreciate it when the car is moving. The exhaust note is the music I really want to hear.

All that aside, it does sound really good when the car is stationary, and the installation is nothing short of perfect.

Thanks for all the kind words

Cheers
