Carfection Front Engined Porsches Video

I know it has been a little (okay, long) while since may last post on here, I have to confess the SC has been getting most of my attention, and any 924 updates have been going in my GT Porsche updates, I will try and change that. However I, finally, have something new to share! … Continue reading

Sprint Trial

It has been a very long time since my last update, largely because I have been distracted by other things – cars and such – but am pleased to report the 924 S is still going well with little more than routine maintenance. About the only upgrade has been the exhaust, now a Dansk stainless … Continue reading

Another track day video!

Yet more of me driving in circles… Back to Bedford, this time for an Evo Magazine track evening. It was extremely wet in the day, and there was a big downpour once we got on track. I have mixed feelings about the rain, it is a pain not being able to really go for it, … Continue reading

Engine out

This isn’t a repost, I’ve been meddling again… In January 2012 I removed the 924’s engine and spent some very cold evenings replacing the seals. It was, without a doubt, the biggest mechanical job I’d undertaken so I was delighted that I actually did it right; it didn’t blow up and improved the car’s performance. … Continue reading

2013 with the 924 S, The Movie.

A year in the life… So, I haven’t been keeping the blog up to date with all of my shenanigans of late, partly due to time and partly because I never get around to adding the bits I write for GT Porsche, but I should change this over the Christmas break. This year has seen … Continue reading

Another Bedford Outing

Yes, I’ve been back to Bedford… Well, if Evo Magazine will keep running these track evenings. It was good one too. Conditions were pretty much spot on; warm, dry and most importantly, not too hot! I felt I was driving a lot better this time, although possibly a little aggressive in some of the corners, … Continue reading

Track Time, Videos

The reason I got into this… It took a while to get started, but I have managed a few track days in the 924 S now, mostly at Bedford Autodrome – which I will be using as a proving ground for any changes to the car, I am beginning to get to know the circuit, … Continue reading

Quicker Steering Conversion

When manual is too much… When my 924 S first arrived I was pleased to discover that it didn’t have power assisted steering. As the Porsche was bought as a track project I wanted a manual rack, for the feel and the feedback. The strange thing was, driving the car, it wasn’t quite what I’d … Continue reading

Engine Work Part 5 – Refitting

The end of it? Well… Having done all of the hard work piecing the engine back together I simply needed pop it back in. It all sounds so easy, in those terms. Sadly, it never really is. Once I had the engine back together I used the hoist to manoeuvre it back into position in front … Continue reading

Engine Work Part 4 – Repair

Putting the new bits on. Having stripped the engine down, the problem parts removed, it was time for the fun part, putting the new bits on and getting the engine back together. With the top dead centre located and the flywheel lock in place I was able to get on and remove pretty much everything … Continue reading
