... and front 996 RSR mud flares:









These front corner flares I'll probably will rebuild one day: they didn't come out as nicely as rear flares. But now we go with these, as they do protect from mud, gravel and stones...

When asking inspection certificates from KWsuspension, I found out, that instead of having K3 variante 3 in my 996, it got slightly better KW setup under it:

KW Clubsport 3-way suspension w/ top mounts - Porsche 911 GT3 RS type 996, 2004-2005


Sometimes happy surprises!

I start to work more with this engine: as if opening it also for inspection and bearing change, I can also get some stroke crankshaft for 3.8, 3.9 or 4.0L capacity. As having all these mods finished I'll expect to have some 350hp or more... 9ff was promising 415hp in those days they did exist, but I would be happy with some 996 GT3 Mk 1 360hp ish result... This is to be seen then .

This is similar to oem to get rid of



This is similar to oem 996 GT3 Mk1 intake I am going to install with GT3 mk1 throttle body.
The 996 3.4 engine has the thinnest cylinder walls of any M96/M97 engine so not recommended to go longer stroke without sleeving with stronger billet alloy sleeves. I have a 2001 engine that is sleeved to 3.6Litre by 99mm cylinder bores for sale completely rebuilt for $15,000 US.

I see what this can take with gt3 intake manifold and throttle body. I quess it will be good for some over 320+ hp in this way... if more than 360hp (GT3 Mk1 3.6L) I would be surprised. After one or two years of every day driving I am rather replacing this 3.4L engine with something like M97.74 Engine Porsche 911 997 4,0 GT3 RS 368 kW 500 PS M97 M9774 or something like it: there is such engines available in Europe in around 18-22 000 euros, and this way I can have easy 500hp in it with Metzger case. Thank you anyway for your offer.

After this 3,4L M96 engine is developed with these mods I am now doing, if it is still ok after 2 years of very day driving, it can find its place in some nice Boxster of mine . 320+hp or more makes Boxster S more nice for mid engine car... If it is gone, so then it is gone... But this car will be developed to be nice streetable 996 RSR with plenty more Cup car parts in suspension and brakes during the years with some other, probably Metzger engine...
