  1. On the money. The exhaust mods will make much more gains than an intake or IPD plenum. There is always the cost of noise with exhaust mods and that can be a problem for some.
  2. Valid point. I've experience of sandblasting soft metals but not ABS plastic... It could crumble into dust during the process - this is quite likely a possibility!
  3. Wouldn't it have been easier/faster/cheaper to have had it sandblasted rather than keying it down by hand? Does look good though - this is one of my favourite things about the CR.
  4. Check the belt deflection is in tolerance (not sure what that figure is)? Sounds like it's stretched and is causing the whine. Only other options would be the tensioners. I'm not that familiar with the Cayman's belt drive to comment much further, unfortunately...
  5. I've had no problems doing 4-5 hour journeys in my CR. You must be old, GlosRich! 😉
  6. Disconnect your battery for a few mins and then do the window relearn procedure.
  7. The OE caps are made by an Italian company (can't remember their name). A decent wheel refurb place will be able to refurb your hub caps as long as the crest is in good shape.
  8. I have these wheels on my CR in satin platinum. They look delicious in black!
  9. This would be setting alarm bells off for me. It should have been bled properly before it's handed back to you and driven away. Definitely related to the work - sounds like something is amiss. Check over each component that would have been interacted with by the change. You'll need to get the lower covers off to check it bottom to top. It does look like too much coolant in each area to be a weeping pump. You would expect more of an obvious stream as it drips down, not the splashes that you've pictured. I would start with the expansion tank as dougle_turbo suggested. Check the caps are tight, etc., it may be something simple. Fingers crossed it's just a loose hose/clamp.
  10. The CR tests were performed with the car in second gear, which is why the tax is lower. Pretty sure somebody sued Porsche and won about it.
  11. The MAF issues are mostly caused by people over oiling after washing the filter. The oil won't leave a factory prepped filter, but can certainly leave one that's been overdone. I run a BMC one myself but couldn't really tell the difference. The gains are all on the exhaust side, but that's obviously an issue if you dislike excessive exhaust noise (which I do). I would think about your goals and what you could put that money towards instead. The IPD plenum and 82mm TB for me were the real winners. It completely eliminated the flat spot in the mid range. If you're not bothered by exhaust noise, then the manifolds should be the plan of attack on a 987.2, and the cats in the back boxes on a .1.
  12. Did you not read the post that I wrote in the thread? I think that you should. Here's the direct link: I have chrono; I have a CR with an 82mm TB, IPD comp plenum and a Softronic map. I've also mapped standalone ECUs (ME221, Apexi PowerFC), piggyback ECUs (AEM FIC6) and have a sound understanding of overall engine control; as well as intricate knowledge of mapping ignition timing, injection mapping based on VE, cold start metholodogies, amongst others. Regardless, it doesn't mean that what I'm saying is more or less true. A sprint booster is not the same as chrono or a map, and that's exactly what I stated. I'm not saying it's good or bad - simply that it isn't the same as chrono or a map. I think you are being far too dismissive rather than considering there's limits to your knowledge. Perhaps try researching the topic further rather than accusing me of not knowing how a drive-by wire throttle functions. It's important to note that I'm not writing this aggressively or with animosity. It's your choice to be humble or dismissive; it makes no difference to me. Edit: Also, I'll bow out now as I'm clearly derailing the thread. Apologies to the OP.
  13. No, I'm fully aware of the point - it's you that is missing the point. A sprint booster sacrifices control. I'm not writing it all out again.
  14. A sprint booster isn't equivalent to sport chrono. It does not work the same, nor produce the same effect. It sacrifices control.
