  1. Thanks guys. to be honest I could have sold it a few times over - I had that much interest. reassuring to know that there are plenty of modifiers and keen performance fans out there. cheers. Kai
  2. The car sold yesterday. I’m sad and happy at the same time lol. of course I have my new 718 but I will miss this one a lot. no doubt the new owner will be along soon to say hi. Kai
  3. I’ve had the car back for a little while and I have to say it feels amazing. The engine is loosening up with every mile although it’s only done 200 miles since the rebuild. After the running in oil was changed it was filled with Millers Nanodrive and Hartech recon it’ll take about 100 hours until it’s fully run in. The performance gets stronger every drive so whoever takes this car over is in for one seriously fast car. I’ve had a fair amount of interest now so I’m hoping the new owner will be on here soon. Kai
  4. That’https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/porsche/cayman/awesome-improved-porsche-cayman-24v-s------------------2007/10058339 hopefully this is the link to Pistonheads. can I change the title to Fabulous Modified Cayman S for sale ?
  5. Thanks for your input everyone I agree with you all but genuinely believe that this is an absolute bargain for the money. It is so well sorted now and just paying extra for the peace of mind a rebuilt engine gives you over an unknown is worth a premium. add all the mods and it’s a steal. IMO. I’ve got four people interested in the last week and hope for more. I won’t be dropping the price and am sure the right buyer is out there. please keep your ears open if you know anyone looking. cheers. Kai
  6. Hi all. I got the car back today and it is simply awesome. I can’t tell you how good the rebuilt engine feels. It’s done 100 miles to run in and had the oil changed and it’s now ready for sale. The car is brilliant - I know I’m selling it and would say that but it is so smooth, fast, loud, stiff, brakes are awesome - everything about it is improved over standard. As you know, I’ve bought a new 718 Cayman now and can’t afford to keep both so I need to sell it. If you or anyone you know is looking for something special then please get in touch here. ive put the ad up on PistonHeads today and will pug it up on the Porsche groups on FB etc too. Thanks again !!
  7. Hi everyone I’ve just been told that the engine is now back with the car and should be all back together again in the next few days. It’ll need running in and a new MOT but will be awesome and ready to sell very soon. Please let me know if you or anyone you know are interested. Remember, don’t compare this with normal cars - if you want something faster, stiffer, noisier, extremely well sorted with lots and lots of money spent on it - this should be the car for you. I’m starting to regret having to sell it already !! Regards Kai
  8. Thanks for the feedback guys. @jcm987 I agree. There are no dealerships which specialise in modified cars and the others would offer silly low prices. What I need to find is another enthusiast like myself who wants all the good stuff I’ve done for much less money than doing it themselves and will be able to make use of it all. @Ben Gosling I will put some pictures up with the advert but if you pm me I’ll send some sooner @PMGPete the mods and rebuild are all part of the car as it stands now and cannot be taken off. It would be like trying to put a GT3 back to a Carrera lol. I will keep sending updates on the hopes that we can find someone through this forum who wants something a bit special. Cheers all !! Kai
  9. Just s quick update from me. The engine is now on its way back from the Hartech rebuild and will be going back into the car. Once it’s been run in and fresh oil put in, I’ll be advertising it properly. If anyone on here is interested or knows someone please get in touch. I’d love for the car to stay in the Owners club. Its going to be an absolute beast!!! Regards Kai
  10. Hi all. My car is away at Hartech having an engine rebuild. This is both good and bad - it’s a lot of money but needed doing and the car will be amazing when it comes back. I’ve bought a new 718 Cayman to replace it and so will the selling it as soon as it’s ready. Thing is, my car is not like others for sale. I have spent a LOT of money on it making it faster, handle better, stop better, louder - just better in just about every area. More performance than an R, probably nearer to a GT4. My question is, do I advertise it in the usual places - here, Pistonheads, Porsche Owners etc or should I be looking for something more specialised? its an 07 987 CS so a normal one would be £14k+ but this has a lot of extras plus a rebuilt 0 miles engine and I want £19k. What are your thoughts?
  11. Not to put a downer on things but make sure the water pump going hadn’t effected the head gasket or the head itself. This can happen if the car overheats. Remember also that the temp gauge doesn’t tell the actual water temp. Anyway hope it’s all ok for you.
  12. Thanks guys. I’ll look into it Kai
  13. Hi gang. My 987 CS has had a fair amount of time and money spent - it now goes and sounds about as good as it’s going to get. However, with the race manifolds, 200 cell cats and Carnewal cat delete GT3 system the car is LOUD. I love it - especially the pops and bangs on the over-run - but it’s now too loud for track days. I had it measured at Goodwood where it was 105dB (just) stationary at 5000rpm. The only way I’m going to get onto a “normal” 100dB day is by making it quieter again. Without changing the system, I guess exhaust bungs are the only way forward. I’ve used these plenty when racing Radicals, but do you know of any for our cars? Mom guessing same problem for GT3, GT4 models on quiet days.... any suggestions gratefully received cheers Kai
  14. Thanks guys. So I already have the braided hoses and racing fluid. This time I went for Brembo disks and Pagid RS pads. Appreciate the replies / interesting that we all have our own ways of doing things. Kai
  15. Thanks bud. Ill take a look. Is it a US based company which means shipping costs need to be added? Kai
