    Porsche Cayman GT4 with Fabspeed Race Headers

      Title: Porsche Cayman GT4 with Fabspeed Race Headers

    Porsche Cayman GT4 with Fabspeed Race Headers Screams Out a Memorable Drive

    TIP?

     

    23 March 2017, 22:10 GMT · BY ANDREI TUTU

     

    Not all that many people feel the need to improve a Porsche Cayman GT4, but, for those who don't belong in this category, it's reassuring to know that the aftermarket offers tons of solutions. The majority of GT4s drivers who take their Porschas down the tuning route do it for aural reasons and one of the most vicious-sounding setups out there comes from Fabspeed Motorsport.

     

    The Pennsylvania-based developer offers multiple exhaust setups for the Neunelfer-engined Cayman and we're here to talk about the most extreme. This features a set of race headers, along with a vavletronic exhaust and we'll start with the first piece of hardware.

    The catless long tube headers mean this setup is destined for play outside public roads. The goodie also works as a brief trip to the gym, for instance delivering up to 18 hp and 15 lb-ft of twist at 6,300 rpm. as for the low-end gains, the most impressive values come at 3,700 rpm, adding 27 hp and 38 lb-ft of torque - note that all these values are measured at the wheels, so they're between 10 and 15 percent greater than the crank horsepower numbers that are usually used to describe outputs.

    On the weight reduction from, the custom setup is 10 lbs friendlier to the scale than the one it replaces and this is also a good moment to mention that the system is built of stainless steel.

    All the tech details mentioend above are fine, but there's nothing like real-world experience to showcase the sharper attitude of the Porsche Cayman GT4 mentioned here.

    And that's exactly what you'll find in the piece of footage below. This clip delivers a sweet GT4 drive, albeit one that takes place on the street.

    However, note that the valvetronic muffler means that, at the touch of the button, the driver can make this mid-engined Porsche less of a screamer.

  • PCM 3 bluetooth query

    Hi The telephone stuff all works fine, but is there a way that when my phone is paired with the PCM and I have a podcast on my phone that it can stream itself through the car hi-fi, ditto for the Google Maps voiceover on my phone..... I can't quite work out what buttons/settings to press. Best regards Julian

    First engine fault scare

    PSM failure Start stop disabled Engine light came on Running rough, no power   Oh no,  this sounds expensive!!!   Off/on and all seemed ok until a few miles later and same again.      6 new coils later and all good.   2 had failed,  1 was intermittent and one had faulted in the past.

    Aftermarket Sat Nav and head unit

    Hi,   Just bought my first Porsche, Cayman S Gen 1.   As the car does not have a sat nav fitted I am looking to fit an aftermarket unit, radio/sat nav/blue tooth. May be a dumb question but does the Cayman have a single or double DIN arrangement, also appreciate recommendations on what unit to go for.   Cheers   Steve

    Can I go this wide?

    I'm hoping to get your thoughts if I can run 285/30/18 for my rear Cayman 987.2S lowered with B8 and R springs. I'm on BBS SR rims and have 7mm spacers on the front and 15mm spacers on the rear. Currently running PSS 245/4018 for the fronts and can get on a new set of PS2 285/430/18s to replace my end of life PS2 265/40/18s. Maybe its the covid supply chain issues and me not being on 19s but its really hard on my shores to get a good set of tires for now. Michelin still does not bring in the

  • Porsche Myths Busted: Car Insurance & N-rated Tyres

    There will be many eyes rolling at the title I'm sure and much has been written on many an internet forum on the topic of N-rated tyres.   But I'm not here to enter the murky depths of whether an N-rated tyre has a different rubber compound to it's non-rated equivalent, nor am I going to make any claims as to the performance differences and whether by not using N-rated tyres you will find yourself in a ditch one day.     Today, I'm focussing on something more specific, and answering th
