Default best money spent on the 928, pt.2

I noticed another thread about this. While rennlist membership is the best money you can spend, what comes next?


For me, I think the devek radiator + twinfan setup helped me the most.
I had this funky radiator leaking issue and a crappy electric fan I picked up from a junkyard. I finally got sick of my car running warm/hot and loosing coolant so I completely replaced the radiator + fan and all my worries went away. Car ran right at the first white line... even during a bunch of back-to-back dyno runs (about 7 IIRC).

The RMB and short shifter were also other good mods for cheap.

I would list Andy's kit as the best thing i've bought for my 928, but we did more of an exchange than a purchase.

$690 for cup wheels with 90% rubber (including shipping)!
Next would have to be the nitrous.

Agreed on what is the best money spent!
For second place, the item available at low cost that continues to help a growing large number of owners, I'll nominate the Anchor # 2698 motor mounts.

How about the Service Covers. Very good thing. Maybe the used Test Pipes.

I'll vote for the stainless steel RMB, H4 headlights, and then the Momo Club 4 steering wheel. Modest, but good in the bang for buck satisfaction rating.

How about helping the news guys out. What's an "MM" or an "OTT"?

MM - Motor Mount
Ott - as in "Louis Ott", a manufacturer of x-pipes and other stuff.

Personally,

I think upgrading the stereo was a good one for me. Driving around with engine noise/whirring sounds was quite annoying. Now, its crank the tunes and head out on the highway....whooohooo!

What year/model can the Anchor motor mounts be used on? Anything with a lifetime warranty is good in my book, anything that's half price is better!

If you haven't read the "New Visitor" thread at the top it is very useful, links, abbrev. etc. Welcome.
