    Re: supercharger installed, and car due back pretty soon

    Impressive! Who did the kit and who installed it?
    JM

    Re: supercharger installed, and car due back pretty soon

    evomotorsports did the kit and the install

    Evo website

    Re: supercharger installed, and car due back pretty soon

    give us some details, how much bhp and torque?

    acceleration and topspeed for that cab??


    Re: supercharger installed, and car due back pretty soon

    believe the preliminary dyno showed 430 hp/348 lbs. haven't gotten it back yet so haven't done any acceleration testing. it's not likely i'll be exploring top end any time soon :-)

    Re: supercharger installed, and car due back pretty soon

    Ben, I checked out their website and nothing is said about a 3.6 supercharger conversion. From what you know is that to follow?

    Re: supercharger installed, and car due back pretty soon

    3.6L will follow, but is not out yet.

    Re: supercharger installed, and car due back pretty soon

    If you don't mind my asking, how much does it cost ?

    What's the running PSI?
    I know Todd has one in his car for some time now, did you know of any reliable problems? Thanks in advance and keep us posted.

    Maybe this sounds dumb but why didn't you sell your Cab and went for a 996 Turbo Cab instead?
    The M96 engine is not very suitable for supercharging/turbocharging, one reason why Porsche went for a different engine to put into the 996 Turbo/GT2.

    Re: supercharger installed, and car due back pretty soon

    Ben,
    Looks great; and thank you for the rest of the C-GT pictures;
    too. I was there in Leipzig, with you; I'll never forget it !
    Your '01 996 Cab needs the updated oil cap; especially with
    the supercharger installed. More internal pressure. The old caps could leak. Let me know if you can't find one....new cap
    style would look better and seal better. Take Care, Revvv

    Re: supercharger installed, and car due back pretty soon

    "If you don't mind my asking, how much does it cost ?"

    $11k installed.

    "What's the running PSI?"

    5 i think

    "I know Todd has one in his car for some time now, did you know of any reliable problems?"

    none that i know of

    "Maybe this sounds dumb but why didn't you sell your Cab and went for a 996 Turbo Cab instead?"

    3850 lbs does not a sports car make. besides, i don't like the way the AWD feels in the coupe. no thanks re: a turbo cab

    "The M96 engine is not very suitable for supercharging/turbocharging, one reason why Porsche went for a different engine to put into the 996 Turbo/GT2."

    I drive the car about 3k miles/year. We don't have an autobahn and the car isn't tracked hardly at all. But, if the motor blows, maybe I'll put in a GT3 one.

    "Ben,
    Looks great; and thank you for the rest of the C-GT pictures;
    too. I was there in Leipzig, with you; I'll never forget it !"

    Sorry, but that was Ben, Fr. I'm not doing the GT Leipzig ride til 3/04.

    Thanks for the information re: the oil cap!

    Re: supercharger installed, and car due back pretty soon

    Hummm, I bet with the supercharger you will drive much more than 3K miles a year Have fun with it

    Re: supercharger installed, and car due back pretty soon

    btw, the reason i had todd at evoms.com do the work is that he has a pretty rich history of doing fantastic and reliable work. i made the "might switch to the GT3 motor if it blows" comment without any expectation whatsoever that the motor won't outlast my ownership - and then some.
