Tyson does great work, doesn't he?

Still in love with that beastie after all those miles?

James,

Looks great! Any chance for a photo of the muffler and pipes? Believe Tyson made a second port that can be open or closed and wondered how he worked it out.

Thumbs up

That is one cool car. It pretty much covers all the bases on what I would like to do to my car. I hope to see it in person someday.

Congratulations, James! I would come help you christen the beast, but you up and moved halfway across the country. I expect a plethora of stories as you enjoy your wonderous new 911.

I averaged about 90-100 most of the time, notice how low the RPM's are. MPG was about 25



another milestone on a long trip



gas, gas and more gas at 3+ a gallon, but hey after a 3.6 swap it seems cheap!

Wish my stock 2.4 S got 25mpg @ 85-90...hell, wish she'd get 20!
@ 90, 15-18 is about average, but then I'm turning 4300 or so...

I love that last pic...Tyson, a wee bit scruffy himself, hands on hips. Wonder what he's thinking? Perhaps: "How can I get this car back?"
