Default Misha Widebody Cayenne 957 Turbo S Project

As some of you may know, I acquired a very low mileage (26,000) 957 Turbo S in the Spring with the plan to modify it with a Misha Widebody kit and a few performance enhancements. Things are now in the works so figured I'd start a thread to provide updates as things progress.

Here's the plan:

Body & Look
  • Misha Widebody Kit includes new hood, front & rear bumpers, rocker panels, and fender flares to mate with those molded into the new bumpers. I have the dual level rear spoiler on my Cayenne already so opted to keep that one rather than install the Misha one.
  • Car will get a full repaint in Porsche PTS Onyx White Pearl Effect Metallic
  • I'll be keeping the silver trim accents currently on the car. I've added the roof crossbars and will also be having the top of my Yakima Skybox painted with the car to match the Onyx White Pearl
  • Fabricating custom mesh front guards and a center grill to protect the radiators and intercoolers from road debris and damage
  • Installing 958 style front turn signal lights. I'll be using a current sensing DRL module to enable the white leds in them as DRLs and they'll dim with the headlights and with the turn signals on that side.
  • PIAA led foglights in the lower side front openings

Interior
  • Replaced the OEM carbon fiber, aluminum, and black leather & plastic with a Dark Wood Interior trim kit that the wife wanted - looks very elegant (the previous trim is for sale in The Marketplace as a kit for anyone looking to update their stock trim to that from a Turbo S) - already installed
  • Installed a p3 Gauges vent gauge tied into the OBDII port to be able to more accurately monitor boost, coolant temp, etc (already installed)
  • Hard wired my Escort Max 2 Radar Detector and installed it on the mirror post with a Blendmount (already installed)

Engine & Performance
  • IPD Plenum (already installed)
  • HHR Cold Air Intake Kit
  • Mishimoto Catch Can to keep oil from filling the Driver's side intercooler
  • Fabspeed Secondary Cat Bypass Pipes (already installed)
  • Cargraphic Medium Sound SS Muffler
  • Evolution Motorsports Billet Diverter Valves
  • FVD enlarged intercoolers with metal side tanks
  • Maxspeed Interlocking Oval Turbo Exhaust Tips
  • 22"x12" Varro VD02 Wheels with 315/30-22 tires on all 4 corners

Looking forward to getting the car back from the body shop with it's new look in a new color. I'm working on parts of the customization while they're working on the widebody kit itself. Completion target is around the end of Q1-2017 if not sooner. Here are a few photos of what the finished product will look like, but this one is a matte white with black wheels and mine will be a metallic white pearl with silver wheels of a different style.

Spent last weekend and a few late nights working on the Misha front bumper. I'm fabricating brackets to secure the 958 front lights and on custom grill work that will keep the aggressive open look of the front bumper, yet provide some protection from road debris and to keep the new FVD intercoolers and radiator clean. After doing all the mock-up work for the lights and grills, I coated the inside with a black, paintable, undercoating to smooth out the finish of the fiberglass. The brackets for the front lights come back from the powdercoater late this week and I'll put it all together once, then take it apart, before taking it to the body shop for them to work on fitment and paint.

Here are some pics.

I've been getting together more parts for the build for when I finally get the car back, which is still probably a couple months out. Body shop guys are at SEMA this week, so not much progress happening
  • Cargraphic Medium Sound exhaust that will be paired with the already installed Fabspeed Secondary cat bypass pipes that I polished up before install
  • Interlocking Oval (TechArt Style) polished stainless exhaust tips - the OEM Turbo S tips will be put up for sale at some point
  • p3cars Vent Gauge already installed to get digital boost & vacuum, mixture, voltage, and some other enhanced readings.



Using Different Tips than these

Subscribed! Fantastic build and glad to play a part in it with our SCBPs

Any interest in rounding out the engine performance with optimized ECU mapping? We just squeezed about 100whp/140wtq out of the 958 Turbo S last week with just tuning, and the 957 model isn't far off that

John, thanks for the input. Not looking to do a tune at this point, but with the intake, Diverter valves, exhaust, and Intercoolers, might be worth it, so you never know - maybe.

Thanks. I had one of those for each car done and they're framed and hanging in my office with a space left for the Cayenne one once finished. On another wall I framed your metal and carbon fiber crest. Also made an office chair from a spare 928 seat I have and used a 12v alarm back-up battery mounted under the seat plate so all the electrics work too.

I know, I'm a bit of a freak
