Post subject: 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo

As usual, I can't keep a car for very long (I have McAra syndrome, it's bad)

However, this is a car I really want to hold onto. While I always had a gripe about the price difference of the 996 vs the 997.1, after owning one, I can definitely understand why it's so much more. The interior doesn't look like it was made by Fisher Price. There are a few more creature comforts (integrated garage door opener being a major plus).

I paid a little more to get this car from a dealer to avoid questionable history and abuse. This car was stock exhaust for some black exhaust tips and an OEM GT2 front bumper conversion, which isn't as common on the 997 as it is on the 996.

Out of the box, from the factory, this car has an impressive amount of power and response. However, it's never enough. So let the modding begin.

Current Modifications:

Exterior:

ADV.1 10tf wheels
OEM GT2 Front End
Matte Vinyl Hood Wrap

Interior:

Factory with Aluminum Option for Ebrake and Shifter

Drive Train:

Numeric Racing SSK
GT2 Slave Conversion

Power Mods:

Full EvoMS 775 Kit
EvoMs Leak Proof Kit (Tb to Y-pipe)
BBI Barcode Exhaust
Tune taking place on 3/28

Suspension:

Bilstein PSS10 PASM
Full Corner Balance & Alignment performed by Robert Boreham

I will say that the suspension completely transformed the car. Power was put down better and it handles very well. Sway bars are next on the list of things to do. Rob did an amazing job with the balance and alignment. The car is very compliant, it feels like it should.

No plans to track it anytime soon, if I do it will likely be at INDE or a track of similar size.

Here is a pic before it was on the coilovers:
