Dyno'd the car today. Bone stock engine with 153k-ish miles......




Now the fun stuff can begin. Doing an intake and a/c + power steering delete tomorrow. (or at least starting.)
Also installed our short shifter today. DAMN it feels good. I've made my own shift knob for it, and if i have free time tomorrow i'll try and get it mounted.

That’s a great result for that car on a Dyno Dynamics (a.k.a. Heartbreaker) dyno.

Yeah, we were both surprised and thrilled. We were expecting between 170-180 at the wheels. Best news is, we can finally get to the fun stuff! Got our intake engineered and manufactured, gonna do a few more things before we dyno it again and see if our shenanigans actually helped.

Instead of destroying the seat, you could have gotten a cheap racing seat and sold the original one. At least here in Sweden, an original second hand Porsche seat in worn condition sells for about the same as a second hand racing seat.

Edit: Alright, now I noticed the actual condition of your seats. Never mind, then...

Hahaha, yeah. We kept most anything in condition worth selling, but both of the seats were WAAAYYY past that point.

Couple of things were accomplished recently. First, we got our NRG quick-release wheel in and on. You can't see it, but the release mechanism is pink, because why not. I happened to have a spare badge laying around, and we discovered that it fit perfectly where the horn button used to be!


Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand we made the intake:


3" all the way to the filter. Yes, that's flexible air ducting form Home Depot. For the MAF, we cut the section of the stock airbox off that it plugged into and grafted it directly in. Runs like a champ, and the sound it makes is MAGNIFICENT. Can't wait to dyno again and see if it actually helped, though I'm pretty sure it does. (I'm an engineer, trust me.)

EDIT: Oh yeah almost forgot! You can see in that image with the intake, we blocked off the small port the AOS feeds into the intake and sealed it, and ran a hose from the AOS into the trunk. Eventually, we'll put a catch can back there, but for now, it'll do. Kinda interested to see how it does, and once we know more, i'll do a bit more of an in-depth write up. I've had the damnest time getting real, solid info on the stupid thing and deleting/bypassing it. (And yes, the MAF and AOS are both sealed with FLEX SEAL. Holy ****************, that stuff is worth every penny.)
