Yes...utterly brilliant from start to finish! You and your team should be very proud!!
You should send some documentation to the factory.

Rom, I only just noticed the cam cover. So you went back to a factory unit?

Might you have a pic of the hatch hold down brackets (hatch side)? I'd love to see what you or the factory used, and how you are able to run the hatch down nice and sealed (I have struggled with my own fabricated ones and am having clearance issues. Breathtaking build!

Yes you're right this is one of the improvements we still have to do. I've got the 3D model and done a master to do the casting but it was with a small 3D printing machine (So many pieces like the one in picture) and the result is not as nice as i expected (deformations). I need to find a subcontractor able to realize the part in only one step and not in several pieces i have to weld but the hardest is to find it for a "reasonable price". Price for this type of work is really high (over 2500€ without the casting) so, for the first tests we prefered run the car in security with the Factory came cover . Potential Oil leaking and hot Turbo together are not doing good things

Noahs, i'm not completely sure about what you want to see but if you speak about the rear brackets, these are totally std parts you can find on ebay. One thing we learned during the construction is that PORSCHE used really often parts from their other road models or from the std Automotive industry.

Rom, thank you. So how did you attach those to the hatch? Does your hatch have the standard 924/944 cast aluminum bosses for the pins like the road going cars? Did you weld brackets or perhaps you attach the latches directly to the rubber spoiler?

our hatch is in fiber glass so no problem to fix them directly with screws and bolts

BRAVO!!!!!

Bonjour, j'ai un 1991 944S2 que je veux améliorer les performances. Je ne vais pas utiliser un turbocompresseur. Je me demandais comment le moteur se sent avec votre collecteur d'admission. Je veux en construire un semblable au vôtre avec les tubes plus longs. Je ne peux pas me permettre d’avoir des papillons individuels, je vais donc en utiliser un seul comme vous. Je vais installer des arbres à cames performants. J'ai une puce de performance en Allemagne et je ne sais pas si je devrais utiliser les en-têtes d'origine. J'ai enlevé le convertisseur catalytique. Je voulais surtout connaître vos sentiments à propos de votre consommation personnalisée. Je vous remercie! Kevin

Hey guys,
yes this is our car for sale. Persons who would buy it are collectors who would like a car not present in all collections as there are only 3 cars in this configuration : Museum car (never be for sale), freisinger’s car (890k€...) and ours and we clearly know that the price will limit the candidates. so it’s Possible that it’ll take a while. So we can start the offer right now without any need to sell it promptly (except to why not start a new project).
Concerning the brake cooling system, both where on the Le Mans car. The first One directly refresh the rotor for hard braking and the « Wheel’s Fan » extract the hot air for next braking point. But BBS are so beautiful that the same as museum car we didn’t add them on our car. It’s possible to buy them and threads are already on the wheels.
To answer KEVIN, merci. Nous sommes très contents du collecteur il donne du couple à bas régime. Cependant je ne sais pas si ce sera suffisant pour un moteur atmosphérique. Je pense que le seul moyen d’avoir une grosse puissance avec le 4 cylindres reste la conversion en turbo.
je pense que tu trouveras pas mal de spécialistes bien meilleurs que moi sur ce forum pour ta demande.
bon courage pour ton projet
