And do you know I thought the Porsche was catching Wally! :lmao:;)

Great pictures Wally and a good write up.

That explains the smoke. I suppose the speed limit on that straight is there for a reason, it would be really hard on brakes with possible failures at the end of that straight.

Ive only ever driven the "ring" on driving Sims.


Wally August 19th 2009 07:25

Clive, that 993 WAS catching me ;) They were much faster than we were in the bug...

Some more pics I found from that day:

how much wider your fenders? 4cm? 6cm?

cookvw September 6th 2009 22:05

nice pics wally. keep up the good work man! i dream of getting to drive my "one day" german look car on the ring.... the price would be thru the roof to ship my car over thir, but IMO it would be well worth it!

Wally September 7th 2009 04:46

Thanks Cook!
Yeah, shipping the entire car over would not be funny wrt costs..better catch a ride with one of us 'when your in the neighbourhood' :D

Lindeman: front +3cm, rear +7cm

Wally, does this mean your track is about the same for both front and rear?

Doubtfull: the answer above was about fender width; track of the wheels does not necessarily follow the fender width ;)

I have the wide turbo alloy arms on the rear (+7,5cm??) and run 944T-M030 spindles up front plus a 21mm spacer on the front.
I say, my rear track is probably still (much) wider than front.

Went to VW Action last weekend! Absolutely fantastic!

More details to follow, but I ran a 12.05 with a 1.65 60ft :)

Nice Wally...
Looks like you Hooked up well on the Last pic :)

12:05? Good!

You should write "how to make Type4 turbo beast in 100 steps".

Base can be OG 2.0 litre engine...sorry for OT

Wally September 8th 2009 06:18

The 130 mph end speed is a fluke, but a cool one :-)

Vid of one of the runs:

Yes, the base can indeed be a stock-ish 914 2.0 as that engine had the same hp as the current all-worked-up 2.2ltr... turbo selcetion is therefore critical as well. Further its actually quite simple and no more than a 10-step process (and 5 year EFI-tuning experience :lmao:):
- rebuild heads on an otherwise good but stock 914 2.0 and just use better (type 1) valve springs (double ones or single with Ti retainers, your pick)
- install pauter rockers;
- install dry-sump system;
- install EFI system with large (50-55 lbs) injectors;
- install the largest intercooler you can find;
- make your own exhaust from something existing;
- hang turbo, make drain to sump extension
- make sure your tranny is strong enough;
- hang on and have load of fun!

Didn't even need 10 steps for that :D
