Test air box on test engine. Next dyno runs to check effect of two ring piston, rods specfic thereto and different exhaust systems.

Now we can see if aluminum metal maxtrix composite (which is being used for various pulleys and other things) can reduce the weight of the transmission case by approximately 10 lbs.

What about fan blade and housing? Light weight alternator already in place?

Thanks again for sharing the progress.

Oh yeah, and is it true this car was the last 964 built as a model year 1995 car. Thought I read that somewhere.

Robert,

I know the 964 Cup cars had a different air box configuration where-by they basically eliminated half of the stock box. This supposedly gained some hp on the stationary dyno. Now Porsche have gone to a "ram air" philosophy with the 996/997 GT cars. Are you/the engineers planning on following suit once the engine is installed into the car?

The thread is not dead. Good news is that with a bit more R&D (read a new piston design and a new exhaust design permitting the space necessary for equal length headers while also providing passenger compartment heat [both of which would not be possible with the original style heater boxes], etc.), HP is in excess of 460.
