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.
