Thank you.
itīs great to get such a good feedback for the own work...
Got the same problem as you. Itīs just -4°C which is something
about 25°F but it feels like -20°C.
especially when you clamp your fingers......
Leave your car as it is.
the red looks great...the polished wheels are a perfect match

Finally, got to work on the car!


Installed D-Zug Grill

Actually not so easy. Fiberglass tail posed some problems. Holes did not line up to stock, had to drill and jiggle things around. Then I was always dropping a washer IN the tail itself. Had fish it out with a magnet.

That sounds like a fun project.
How is the interior?

I drove the crap out of it, took it to a show to show it off, picked up the tipsy wife from a friend's and made it home in a zip.
Overall a great day for me and my 911

A big morning for me. We learned on the dyno Tuesday that my motor likes the 1 5/8" headers better than 1 3/4" when the muffler is installed. The HP goes down 5 hp with the 1 5/8", but the torque is up 3 ft lb, A/F ratio is more stable, and the power curve comes on earlier and more smoothly. As it's 75% street/25% track, I decided to take the more streetable config.

Unfortunately, I have 41mm (1 3/4) exhaust ports, which leaves a 2mm step going into the 1 5/8" affecting the flow at low rpm. Here's my solution and my mornings work:

1. Grind down a smooth reduction at the flange by opening up the 38mm to 41mm and taper it down. Matches the port size and keep a smooth flow.



2. R&R the 1 3/4" with the modified 1 5/8"



3. Change the jetting from 195 (best for 3/4) to smaller 180's (best for 5/8 with higher exhaust velocity)

Cover me! I'm going in.

Looks like I slipped on something and couldn't wait any longer, so I am stripping it down.

Gutting the aged interior.











Prepping the donor lid for paint.



Deleting rear fuse/relay panel. Yes, keeping 12v source, just not as factory.



Heat backdate is on hold as engine is coming out for a re-seal and bath.

Gave it a "whore's bath" and took it to a car show(on a rainy day). Day warmed up enough to drive with the sunroof open and windows down.

Spent about 5 hours removing 7 out of the 12 bolts holding the HE. I previously removed 4 of the barrel nuts, but the last 2 were rounded off. So today I dremeled, heated, Kroiled, banged on, and finally removed the 6 non barrel nuts and one of the barrel nuts. The last barrel is hidden under the HE and will be a biotch to get to...
