show me your fast cars!
I have a boxter s and the bits aren’t expensive, but the labour to do anything costs a fortune given where the engine is. Obviously don’t go anywhere near the main dealers!
The 996 is a bit easier, with small hands you can do lots, and the engine drops out like an old beetle.
Most of the costs are the overpriced dealers and specialists, and most Porsche owners want their cars to be 100% minty mc mint so shell out for everything.Posted 11 months agoCountZeroMember
The fastest car I’ve owned wasn’t that quick by the standards of many here, but it was quite quick enough for daily road use, sadly I don’t have a photo available but it was my 1.7 Puma Zetec, lovely little car around the twisty local A-and-B roads, and sounded great when you wrang it’s neck!
Sadly not mine, but certainly the quickest car I’ve ever driven, and certainly the best sounding, was this:
Maybe, if the lottery coughs up, I could afford to run one!Posted 11 months ago
One went past me today on the M5 – that engine sound! #swoonbigfootMember
not mine but I get to play in these occasionally
my step Dad’s Porsche 911 GT2, fernsport tuned monster. tuned to north of 700hp…
doesn’t go round corners very well and his Caterham CSR is quicker round a lap of Spa.

My brother’s (former) ride… which he had to sell recently.
It was a bit of a sleeper with this under the bonnet…
I can’t recall what the power output was, but it was… substantial (eating M series BMWs without breaking sweat off the lights)Posted 11 months ago
What’s the engine in that MGB?
It’s the original 1.8 sleeved and rebored to 2.2L. High lift cam, over sized inlet valves. Heavily ported head. Lightened and balanced crank, flywheel and conrods. HS6 carbs rejetted with modified butterflies. Been on the rolling road at just over 160hp.
The whole car is about 300kg lighter than original too.
I have an new old stock janspeed twin turbo kit for the rover v8 I fancy building into a BGT. Should put out about 550hp if built right.Posted 11 months ago
