    RUF the Turbo ?

    'RUF will offer a full range of engine conversions, aerokits, interior items, suspension items and wheels for the 997 Turbo shortly after it is released to the US market.'

    Re: RUF the Turbo ?

    I think RC made the most rational assessment for 997 turbo mods: in regards to its technological undertakings, give the tuners a bit of time to get their act together before they start to tamper with it

    Re: RUF the Turbo ?

    Don't get me wrong, i'm definetly excited to see what they come up with, but I really dont see too many people forking over cars immediately for converstions etc...RC definetly has point about giving the tuners some time, I coudn't agree more.

    Re: RUF the Turbo ?

    I already had the chance to talk to two technicians from two different well known Tuners and I have to admit that their claims somehow frightened me. Of course they didn't really know who they're dealing with regarding their claims but to tell a "customer" that this whole new VTG technology is actually only "marketing crap" and that the whole engine is actually the same like the old one, including the engine software, somehow got me thinking.

    I can only recommend to WAIT at least 6-12 months until Tuners figured out that things aren't that simple. Some of them had (and still have) problems to actually get a 997 Turbo for testing/playing around, so I wonder how they can make claims like that without even having seen a real car.

    Of course if somebody wants to play the guinea pig, I don't have any problem with that.

    And a last hint: we have lots of Users, some of them are working for certain companies and have a certain agenda. Don't trust any post here on the forum, some posts may be just fakes to lure users into something they really don't know what they're up to. We have tried in the past to track these "commercial" Users down but it isn't easy since they get more and more clever by using their private computers or even proxy servers for posting their claims.

    One of the best ways to make sure you're dealing with a "serious" person is to check the User title. If someone has already 3000 posts, you can usually rely on his claims. If somebody has only 10 posts, you better be careful. Just a friendly reminder that the internet is a commercial platform too and there are ruthless salesmen out there who want to sell you their stuff at any cost.

    So a guy with 11 207 posts should be fairly trustable then
