    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.

  • Cayman 987.2 200 cell Headers/Sport Cats: Carnewal vs Topgear

    I'm in the market for 200 cell headers for my 987.2 (UK car) but I'm split between buying new Topgear 200 cell manifolds, or buying Carnewal exchange Sport cats. From my understanding for the Carnewal, the cost of the 200 cell cats and shipping is €1,420 + I pay an additional €1,000 which is refundable when I send my original cats to Carnewal as part of the exchange. €1,420 is approx. £1,245 at the moment. VS Topgear, which is £1,300 all in, but I'll still have my original cats which I ca

    Seen a nice 981 for sale, add it in here

    With the 987.2 thread becoming a good resourceful bit of reading i thought it worry starting a 981 one.    Seen a nice car for sale you think it's good value,  well specced or just something different add it here.    Always nice to discuss and what is one person's rubbish is another person's treasure.

    Tidy 987.2 for sale

    Saw this in the CABO UK Facebook group just now and thought it looked a lot tidier than most at that price if there's anyone out there looking.

    Twin turbo 2.7 Cayman

    My 2.7 is getting the TT treatment in the next few months. So I thought I'd start the post to document the install.  Popped it on the dyno yesterday to get a baseline.   If anyone has any upgrade suggestions they'd like to recommend I'd appreciate it.  I'm planning on a clutch upgrade but haven't started looking yet.  Also toying woth the idea of an aluminium flywheel.

    For Sale - Cayman 981 GTS - PDK

    Due to an unavoidable change in my working arrangements, I have for sale my much loved 981 Cayman GTS (2014). It has covered just 49,850 miles - rising slowly with occasional use. It has the superb PDK box and the usual GTS refinements; alcantara and leather-clad black interior and roof lining, Sport Chrono pack and switchable Porsche Sports Exhaust (PSE). The PSE has been replaced in the last year (the valves on the original one seized) with a new genuine Porsche system.    It comes e

  • 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
