The Old Sled is Alive

Well it's been a long while since I've posted.

I guess it was my turn in the barrel because I have spent just a
little over a year with everything that could go wrong going wrong
and I have had to just dig in, keep my head down, and outlast it.

The Sled is done and is everything I could have hoped for. The start
up went sideways right off the bat. I had bought a "slightly used" K27S
Turbo with 700 miles on it and it went tits up in the first drive out.
I had resealed the scavenge pump, replaced all the oil lines to and
from the Turbo, pumped up the oil pressure, tested the flow through
the system and took the Old Girl out for a easy does it test drive.
As luck would have it the turbo took a dump and I foged the country
side all the way home.
Called the Turbo God and he sent me a new Garret GSX61,
absolutely awsome turbo. With my gear set and R&P the car has zero
lag, it's seriously quick.

I posted today because of my long lusting for an original 934/35
manual boost controller I can't believe they are $1,600. It costs a lot
more money than I can spare. I have wanted one for some 30 years
and it's obvious that's not happening.

Slow forward to the present I have gone back to my old ways if you can't
afford it , make it.





An old original installed controller:









A Pressure Regulator 0-30 PSI bought 2 on Evil Bay for $18.00







A Little Paint & Polish






installed between the seats for easy access

Understood. I am just full EFI and wanted to have the most safe guards as possible with added drivability. Looking to control top and bottom port of the wastegate with a boost solenoid. Not open and close control per-say but open and "hold" closed for added boost control/pressure for spool up, closing the wastegate quicker with less bleed off.

I always enjoy seeing your posts, Cole! The Old (Man's) Sled sounds like a real wood-producer now (who needs those blue pills, right?!?!), and really cool work on the boost controller replica!

PS- yer posts look grammatically sound, my friend - well done!!!

Only problem now is that your car is way too clean. To be more like that 934 you need work a lot more dirt and wear in your carpet. Get to it!

Ahh....good to hear you back here Cole!! That manual boost controller looks proper in your car.

Please post around here more often! We need more PC incorrect folks here.

Looks good Dave! The polished brass and allen heads make it look a lot better then it did before. I'm looking forward to hear how well it works.
your buddy,
Jim

No doubt about that!

Every time I see a "keep it stock", or valuation-obsessed thread/post, I always think to myself how I wish Cole was around more often to drop some nuggets of non-politically-correct wisdom on those subjects.

Don't know how many people over here look at the 911 forum, but from time to time, there are threads on the subject of tails, and plenty of limp-Richards sound off about how they think a tail on any 911 is "boy racer" and/or "ricer", well, every now and then Cole sees those type treads & posts and will post up a picture of his car with the ginormouns tail in all its awesomeness, coupled with fitting commentary - always makes me laugh!

Paulie,
Just remembered your working out of the house now, I give you a call.
soon.


Jesper,
It's nice to be back, and I saw a pic of your car !!!! It's Absolutely Killer !!!!!

Tonger,
Thanks !!!! It's good for me to be back, I missed all you Bums.


Ronnie,
Thanks man but don't get to acustomed to the grammatically correct part.


Zakthor,
Don't worry bout that, it washes up easily and I drive it like I stole it.

Mikie,
No problem with the lack of political or social correctness, I are what I are !!!!!
Come see the old guy this year will ya !!!!

Jimmer,
Thanks buddy comming from you that means a lot to me.


Ronnie, Ronnie, Ronnie.

My first post back and your setting me up for those lovely notes I always get from our host.

I enjoy every Porsche ever made regardless of who owns or how it is used but I also
hate it when some limp dick purist starts trashing those of us who choose to enjoy
our cars. There is nothing I enjoy more than making my buddies scream like little girls.
I am fortunate enough to own one of the most iconic sports car ever made and I often
drive it like I stole it and The Sled likes it as much as I do. When I'm dead my wife is going
to have my grandson come over and take me for rides. I'm making a nice 4 point harness
for the jar I'll be in.


Cole

Good see'n you post Cole!!! I have to old dial a death myself.. Wouldn't trade it for any EBC. I have the expensive but cheap plastic Turbonetics MBC. If I could find a 935 MBC for a good price I'd have my grubby hands all over it! I shoulda bought one off eBay a few years back for $250, Oh well..

Great to hear from you and thank you for the kind words. It feels like I'm
back home. I love all of you Bums !!!!!!

GJF:
I know exactly what you mean. I may have some money comming my way soon.
If that comes through I will probably have to get one. I'll see if we could get a better
price for a pair or if anyone can find some old originals.
I'd love to see another post with some pics of that incredable car of yours.

Bri:
Great to hear from you. I hope you are doing well. It's been cold and rainy all week.
Going to be near 80 on Sat.and I'm going on the road.
