FS: 911SC with 3.6-litre 993 varioram engine (UK)

Having once decided to sell the car, changed my mind but having done under 2000 miles in the last year, I have had to admit that it doesn't make sense to keep the car.

All the more so as I've...

My website is offline while it is moved to a new server, but I managed to take a photo at an acute angle that showed the figures on mine, which is the same as yours.

Just as a follow-up, was out driving the car hard today in more typical UK summer temps, and it never got above about 110 degrees. This definitely appears to be a very-hot-weather-only issue, so...

Re: any 993 3.6 DME gurus out there? Car wont start

I had the same issue with mine. The 993 has an immobiliser circuit built into the ECU which defaults to immobilised, and needs a positive signal from the 993 immobiliser to unblock it - and of course...

Ok, thanks. Those seem to come up regularly, so I'll keep the search up for the Carrera cooler in the meantime, and have that as a plan B.

I can see that's a good solution in the US, but the temps here are very rare, and I'd rather not butcher the car to that extent if I can avoid if.

So it sounds like adding a Carrera cooler to the other wing (leaving the existing SC one in place), plus airflow, fan and insulation should do the job.

That does sound like the ultimate test!

What was the cost of the BB system, and how many hours for a professional fit?
