Just by corner balancing, installing ERP bumpsteer kit and tweaking the angles on mine, it transformed the car - so it would be interesting to hear how much the mods have transformed your c2s from what used to be to now.

Keep up the good work.
Great thread, car and mods ��
The car is stiff and rides on rails. Barely any slop at all. I started with a car that needed some attention. What most cars suffer at 21 years old are all the bushings are old and crusty. Soo.. when you replace these with monoballs, adjustable coilovers and RS sway bars... it automatically stiffens up and makes the car handle better. I can compare this car to my old 993 RS which I thought was more compliant than this C2S. This C2S has a lot more steering feedback/road feel and I hope to even improve it more with some help from Rothsport steering rack bushings and tie rods.

Had a chance to visit Rothsport last friday. Very cool place and lots of fun things to see. I was impressed by the amount of work and meticulous detail that goes into building these engines. Jeff does amazing work and I would recommend his engine building service to anyone interested in an upgrade. Can't wait to see the results and install this in the car.

love the way you mounted the suspension adjusters! Very cool. Does JRZ offer those as standard?

Hi Erik,
Just found and subscribed to your thread. I'm a big fan of the 993's as well and agree with others that the widebody model of this car is one of the best looking Porsches of all time. Looking forward to seeing more as you move on with your project.

Great project! Any idea what kind of power the new engine will put down?
