      There were actually thermal reactors before cats in an attempt to burn some of the unspent fuel. IIRC, some of the earlier RX7s in the 70s had them :laugh:

      The best place for the 02 sensor is actually pre-turbine. The turbo itself will act as a "thermal reactor" and further burn fuel and utilize 02 in the exhaust which will skew the AFRs (likely...

      Yea I read about the cooling system a while back when this engine family was being released. Honda / Acura has had integrated exhaust manifolds on their V6s for 10 years at least now.

      Do you even have headers on your car? If not, get them. They rock.



      The EA888 is a very cool engine family. Nothing terribly new about exhaust runners cast into the head though.

      Yea, his car is impressive for sure. I understand about the .2 rear end. The front is nearly identical other than the headlights having slightly different internals. My car came with the .2 rear end...

      I wouldn't do it for an 07. There are a lot more issues than just the HPFP, which has been fixed. The 07s have a different DME version than all the others, which likes to pop caps and fail. The...

      As you've said, the turbocharged variant of the Mezger has shown to be extremely reliable in the world of Porsche flat 6s, and yet despite this, in the 997 world at least, people freak out when a...

      You mean you'd be interested in a German, AWD, pseudo-reliable performance car? No way ;)

      The AWD is really great, particularly as you start making more power. This thing is seriously, seriously...

      Parked next to a beautiful new 991 GT3 that a buddy of mine just picked up. Also went for a spin. Ironically enough, it reminds me a lot of my old GT-R. Similar less refined gearbox noises, more...

      Congrats on the new Boxster man! It really is a very beautiful car. Blue on any Porsche is usually a pretty amazing experience.

      U mad.


      I bought a GT-R for my 30th. It was an awesome car, particularly once modded. There's simply almost nothing faster to 100 mph on the street than a full bolt-on stock turbo E85 burning...

      Exactly. Not all turbo motors are equal and as you said, a lot of the higher end turbo/DI engines actually run stoich or even leaner under much of their rev range at WOT. My M3 actually runs about...

      Haha, no. Honestly, on E85 this car will be more than powerful enough for my needs. I didn't buy a 911 to have a drag car. I don't even want to upgrade the VTGs. Once I'm done with this round of...

      630-650 awhp on E85 on a dynojet I would say. Upgraded turbos actually aren't that expensive. You can get the 63.5mm upgraded VTGs for around $2200 from Protomotive. The bolt-ons are actually the...
