Interest in new Fabspeed catback development?
1 Reply

Hi folks, I've opened a dialog with Fabspeed to build a catback exhaust system for the 968.  I don't feel like there's a perfect choice for cat-back systems out there for our cars because they're…Continue

A couple weeks ago I drove the 968 over 2100 miles for 8 days with my sister around the south west while she was on spring break.  We left from San Francisco and saw the following places:17 Mile…Continue

"This is an old thread but that oil consumption seems high. I just drove my '94 coupe 2,900 miles from Arizona to Maryland in 2 1/2 days and my oil level did not drop at all and neither did my coolant level."

"I've been considering R S Basn for a catback. I have his performance chip and ignition wires (last week) and have been very pleased. Has anyone tried his exhaust?"

"Brian, you'll have to re-index your torsion bars to bring the ride height back down to stock levels.  m030 rear springs raised the ride height of my 968 1-3/8" which is too much to adjust for using the spring plate eccentrics. Allan,…"

Interest in new Fabspeed catback development?

Hi folks, I've opened a dialog with Fabspeed to build a catback exhaust system for the 968.  I don't feel like there's a perfect choice for cat-back systems out there for our cars because they're either ugly looking, fit poorly, weigh too much, lack customer support, lack dyno charts, lose power/tq, or crack/break after a while.  Fabspeed builds excellent high-end exhaust systems but wants to gauge interest before spending time and money to develop something new for us.  I've given them a list…See More

"It's probably the alternator belt because it's supposed to be pretty darn tight. IIRC, the P9201 belt tensioning special tool is supposed to read 2.5 for balance shaft belt, 4.0 for timing belt, and 9.0 for alternator belt!"

Ray Starbird replied to trevor ridgley's discussion Can we expand the latest activity stream?
"Good idea, Trevor. Seems like the activity stream is a starting place for many of us, so I bumped it up to 8 items. Since that pushed the center column down, I moved the videos to the left column. Anyone have any thoughts on the new layout?"

There are currently only 4 latest activity items on the home page but can we expand this to show the most recent 8-10?  Seems like I miss a bunch of activity as a result.  It also takes the stream a few minutes to update after new content is posted to the forum - is this normal?  Thanks Ray.
