This winter is killing me too. To help with the seasonal depression, I watch this video: Me flogging the 911 race car around Monticello full course.

The best part about that video is you (I assume) adjusting the camera at 125mph! Looks like a nice track layout.

How's the track car working out for you? I'm sure you can't wait for the good weather to roll in....

So I've had my car for 2 months and only put 200 miles on it with the ridiculous winter going on here, so this is what is modded. I bought it this way and haven't done any mods myself yet. Don't laugh.

Momo Steering wheel.
930 door sills.
kenwood radio.
pedal set.
shift knob.

I have all the original parts in boxes.

I think I get like 40 extra HP with all these mods combined, right? Anybody dyno'd a radio upgrade?


I want to drive it stock for a bit and then I'm sure to start putting on the bolt ons... headers, turbo, 1 bar spring, adj WUR, etc. I am sure I will be coming here for advice as to what to do first and so on...

Awesome! But since I literally can't get it out of my garage with the layers of ice on the driveway and another 10-12" of snow coming Thursday, it may be April before I can test out your assertion.

rarely l8 muffler, aftermarket head unit, 935 boost gauge, and recently completed Kuel AC system.

Otherwise bone stock down to the 3dlz (or however you call it).

I do have a wideband on my shelf I have been planning to install for several years.
