Good on you mate!

The stealth factor is certainly a good thing to have and fits german style perfectly.
Apart from the looks, on the functionality side, I am also thinking how to overcome a 10 kg rear and high-mounted part as that doesn't improve handling much, on the contrary.
I have some ideas, but alas, there are always the downsides too.

Very pleased you're getting back in and especially the part about test driving 911's and then choosing the bug for performance reasons is golden :D :lmao:

This requires more photos and an updated project thread ;)

Good to hear you're back!

Glad to hear your staying with your project. You only ever loose money on them if you sell them.

Good to see you back. Looking forward to the updates.

Sandeep January 16th 2013 09:51

Thanks All.

Lots of updates to post, just need to sort out all of the pictures and upload.

I need to choose some tires and purchase in the next month as current Pirellis P Zero's are about 9 yrs old :o .. will post in another thread though.

Wally, I need the stealth look. I don't want any 911 owners knowing what's under the decklid at the circuit. :D I need to figure out how to get your intercooler's location / efficency combination under the decklid.

I have a few ideas borrowed from others on the forum (Ricola, Jak Rizzo) with small round ducts in the rear fenders under the quarter glass directed to the IC area, but not too sure how effective this would be.

One of the benefits about being out of the game for some time now is everyone has done their homework with their ideas, and I just need to be careful how I poach the ideas :o

glad to hear your back in the game. X2 on pics/progress.

im with ya on keeping the intercooler inside the engine bay. look at the intercooler set up that has setup. def. has me thinking. i might just follow what he is doing. i run a WBX motor so i have a lot more room in my engine bay since i dont have to seal with the fan shroud stuff. well best of luck to ya on your build! keep us updated.

So I saw a pic of you at the GTG this past weekend at Scott's shop, couldn't believe my eyes!

Rubbed them a couple times, and you were still there. Wow.

Good to see you back!

Sandeep February 28th 2013 10:28

Thanks Pete.

The motivation is great and its just what I need to keep this project going. the more i get done, the more motivation I have to see it through to completion.

Glad you are back in. As I have been building both a Manx and my 79 convert for 10 years I know the frustration. On the Manx I commissioned an exhaust/intercooler/intake build and it has been almost 14 months so far. Nothing fun is easy, except for Blondes...
