Today I was expecting a message that they started the car for the first time.
Instead they told me that there is a problem with the alarm...
They are unable to turn off the immobilizer. So they have current, just not to the fuel pump and starter motor.
I have a pretty extensive aftermarket alarm, and with the new 993 ECU and wiring it is not easy to find out what's wrong apparently.
Called with the alarm guys in Amsterdam but they can't help much if the wiring has changed they say.
Little bit frustrating to be so close and have this problem...

Ahhhh good news. It's the 993 ECU that needs an override for the immobilizer.
If all goes well I'll be heading to Germany this Friday to pick up the car.
Then on Monday after that my shop in Amsterdam can start with the body and suspension.
Looks like I won't be able to make it for the Porsche days at Spa though, unfortunately!
Anybody heading over there?

Okay, I am starting to feel a little bit lonely without any comments...is anybody actually interested in the progress? I know at least a couple of fellows are...
Well I'll keep posting for future reference at least. I haven't seen any similar project on Rennlist.
Or perhaps I can spice things up with some new photos? I have to admit that the photos have been kind of dull lately and not really exciting. I hope todays shots can change that a little, I am completely stoked since I got these phone pics today! Engine is ready!!!

In the first picture above, the engine bay, you can see the water cooled intercooler in the top right. Its the black box.
I love the way it turned out, so amazing. Cant wait to hear the sound...!!

I'm interested, keep posting away please

Engine installation is very well thought out, and love the numbers on the speedo, it should go like a rocket.

Do you mind me asking how much your dampers were, are the rears aluminium, PM me if prefer

Ah! Great to hear from you. I really enjoy your lightweight project as well. My whole idea was to make a car that would be amazing on the track while still usable for street. Instead of buying a loud GT3 (optically) I opted to work on a 964 C2 base. I might go turbo look in a couple of years if I want something else, I love the flexibility of this platform.
I was thinking of backdating in the future but that's out of the window since I choose turbo over NA. Or not? haha you never know...

Anyway, back to your question. The exhaust is partly titanium except for the cats which are stainless and some tubing. I paid a package price for the tuning and this didn't include a titanium exhaust but one out of stainless.
As I wanted to keep the weight in the rear as low as possible I requested titanium and we agreed on an extra fee. So I'm not sure how much just one piece would be.

As far as keeping the weight down in the rear I did what I could:

-RS Rear window
-Rear wiper delete
-Rear bumper CF from DP
-Titanium parts where possible
-Plastic air intake manifold instead of alu
-Heater blower removed
-Engine lid CF from DP
-Rear wheels will be much lighter (Fuchs)
-Rear seats delete

Definitely a very interesting project and and I have watched it from the beginning.

Since only comment so far is "wow" or "awesome" so I think it's better if I just read your story. So please, let it continue.

Definetly an interesting project and keep the info coming especially photo's as we all like those.

As Mikke say's its difficult to come up with reasonable expressions and "wow' and "Awesome" get a bit tiring and boring!

So keep on posting, good luck with the pick up on Friday, we want photo's and video etc and your thoughts of the drive home.

Definitely an interesting project and I'm subscribed. Its so far out of my realm of possibility though that its hard to make meaningful comments other than "oooh" and "aaaah"

The rear shot from underneath looks like the plumbing to a Saturn 5 rocket...

Cheers

Okay, got it. I'll keep posting then and thanks for the great comments. :-)
I was hoping to get the car over the weekend but I'm not sure they'll be ready. Anyway, when I go I'll take plenty of photos and some video.
Maybe I'll do a short interview with Ferdinand who has been in this game forever. I'm a photographer and was planning to do this anyway.

How is the fit'n'finish on these? Did they require the normal rework that we've come to expect with aftermarket FG/CF parts or ?
