    ^^^ cheers. I don't get too hung up on the numbers but the % change is impressive. Close to 30% more power. And tomorrow I get to unleash it . Combined Porsche/HSV track day at Barbagallo. Fkn pumped. A clean car is a fast car right ? Hated the square black end plates on the track wang. Have given them some shape and colour coded them tot he carbody. Looks less hideous. Full tank of E85 and we are good to go. Nice sunny day so hopefully all goes well.

    ^^Where do you find such information??? But yes, it went alright. It's a fkn good thing. Gearbox is now shifting like butter and the extra grunt doesn't hurt. Old mate in front (vid below) is in a GT3 with a 4.0, cup car parts and slicks. Normaly he walks me down the straights but not so much now. But to be fair the track was cool and his slicks hadn't come on.

    Forgive the hooting and hollering. It's been a long road and was quite a relief to have it all come together. And the engine has a bit of the old dears $ in it. I am sure you and Monza can understand. She was where my pertrol head tendencies came from so hoping she is smiling down.

    This car is off its dick. Can't even imagine my 911 with an extra 100+ HP and all the other shit to go with it.

    Love the footage.

    I have never ever felt a need for a Porsche in my life, that was until I came across this thread.

    Holy smokes what an epic car. This thing is perfect in every way!

    Makes superb work of the 317 hp. Sounds, goes, stops, turns and looks like a dream. Love it.

    Thanks cunce. I am absolutely fkn stoked with where it has got to. So the final piece of the puzzle was finished today. The equal length headers and the merge exhaust. Hats off to the the fabricator. He has done an epic job. The car went back on the dyno. Really impressed with the pickup. That shitty hole in the power curve previously is gone. Almost 40hp pickup through the midrange at its worst (bonkers for just an exhaust) and some more torques and just a touch up top. And the sound... Fuck me...it's biblical!!. has gone from the deep note to a near cup car esque scream.

    Here is the new power curve. Much more linear and some solid extra area under the curve.



    And the exhaust pron. 3" tips to "fill the hole" in the rear bar. More girth never hurts.





    And some more dyno action.

    Cheers fellas,

    Has exceeded my expectations. Hard to believe this one change could make such a difference in both sound and performance. Was always chasing a good set of complimentary parts that have a result at least as good as the sum of them individually. I reckon this was the icing on the cake. Now to enjoy. Coffee and cars tomorrow. Retardo wing high downforce setup or standard 3.8 blade ? .

    Other than 2 extra cylinders, why does this sound good and every Subaru sound like absolute ear aids?

    Fuck 40hp gain from an exhaust?! You owe the bloke a slab that's amazing. The sound. the look you are killing it.

    Just the 3.8 blade for street mate 👍 The normal Joe doesn't understand why the big wing lol.

    Fucking epic car 👌
