My long 911 story part 1

Recommended Posts

*UPDATED*

Hey guys, was reading this forum for a while and now decided to share my experience with my 911 called 'White rouge'. The story starts long time ago and lasts till now so i divide it in few parts. Here we go.

Long time ago in 2007 I traveled to the Ural. During the one of the business meetings it have cleared that one of my colleagues has perfect “monster' in his garage. When we woke up at the morning after long and soulful talk, first thing that I wanted to do was check out this monster. And that was what I saw:

At the same moment my brain was set on fire with desire to buy this Porsche because 964 was my dream for a long time. The first thing we did was mini test-drive. I saw that the car wasn't stock at all and was prepared by German Fresinger Motorsport. They actually did great there and car showed not less but 550 German horses, and turbocharger was charging that hard that tachometer arrow disappeared at 4500 rpm and shown up only at 7200 rpm! More to this all the power was assessed upon the rear axle so the car was burningout including 3rd gear! I didn't bargain with the car holder, payed for this atomic bomb and got back to Moscow waiting for my German warrior to be delivered.

The ex-car holder took delivery on his own and before putting car to the rack car for the one last time decided to “rock the place” and he did “rock the place”. As result two pistons collapsed. I've already started thinking to cancel the deal but then recognized that I should follow my dream and bring what's started to the end. So the car was repaired by Ural official services and in the august I met my new car.

But the joy of riding this 964 wasn't that prolonged. It's turned out that Ural official services have put chain tensioner wrong side and the engine died again. After the resurrection I rode one more month but due to absence of cutoff I ruined the engine once again and more to that some old sores came out and I decided to take up my bolide real serious.

This is what i had for that moment. All the work we've done during the next monthes i will describe in the future blogs ;) stay tuned, comments apreciated.

PART 2

In November I addressed to the Vintage tuning-workshop because these guys do amazing things and has already worked with my previous cars. So the process has started with dismantling the engine and sending it to the German workshop Pietz. These guys had have to tune the engine up to 700 HP and add one more turbine! At the same time we were choosing break system and decided to pick Porsche ceramics. On the front axle – six piston 380mm disc; on rear axle – four piston 360mm of stopping force. Next aim was maximum weight decrease. Firstly it was decided to dismount HUGE sub-woofer. It was so huge that two mechanics dismantled it with great problems. The next "guts digging" showed a big amount of moisture and mould. All of these scary stuff was destroyed immediately. After the interiors was finished, all forces was directed on “carbonization”. So I have carbon roof, rear spoiler, all the kit elements, door panels and dashboard.

The engine that we sent to Germany was late back for 2 months of what we planned but the waiting was totally worth it. The June has come meanwhile. Installing of the engine lasted too long and boring. By the way we also installed switchable forward flow with three barrels very nice and credible thing I must say!

To the end of the month everything was ready to the first start. Engine's started but worked really unevenly. July has passed in waiting for mechanic from German workshop Pietz where the engine was tuned. Mechanic came for only week but I had let him understand that he won't leave untill everything works fine. :) The time for stand test has come and as usual no miracle happened: one helix didn't work properly and even more - the stand collapsed. The German mechanic came back to his motherlands with the turbine.

Meanwhile august came. The mechanic came to us again with ready for action helix. Everything was installed tuned and at last Porsche started! In October we've sent car to the motherlands for more precised tuning. In the the end of January engine was completely tuned.

      In the last 2 weeks I bought my first Porsche - a 2001 Carrera 4 tiptronic coupe.
       
      1) Is it supposed to say Carrera 4 or Carrer 4S on the back?
       
      2) Is there a Porsche specific website where I can find a photo of the correct rear decklid badges for each 996 model? I tried Google for 2 hours last night.
       
      I simply trying to determine if my 01 Carrera 4 should read Carrera 4 or Carrera 4S on the back.
       
      Thank you!

      Hey everyone, i own a 2010 porsche Boxter 2.9L with the PDK transmission.. yesterday after leaving the car for a 4 days i started it and went for a drive.. when i turned it on again, i got a warning message “emergency transmission run” and the car became very jerky through gearshifts and wouldnt accelerate properly.. after turning it on and off the message went away and it drove just fine but then it kept re-appearing mid drives and becomes very jerky and clunky...ive noticed since i had the car that the gearbox was sometimes clunky or would make a noise when changing gear but the dealership said that was fine and normal since its a PDK, the car is at 59,000km so its time for a transmission fluid change... could this be a low voltage problem, or transmission fluid? The reverse gear works just fine.. has this happened to any other owners?
