You are living my dream. ... a built 996 Turbo is going to be insane.

What other supporting mods are you doing? I'm assuming you'll be staying in a safe power range on the stock motor?

I did new fuel pump about 12 months ago, so fuel system is pretty refreshed. did intercoolers as well about a year ago. This will be about max output before I'd need to build the motor.

- 1300CC injectors
- Cobb Tune
- Turbos

Will swap out spark plugs, and coil packs while i'm in there.

Very nice, do you plan on rolling E85 once the 91/93 tune is finalized?

Will the COBB tune be fully custom?

e85 is basically non existent out here, plus I need to be able to fill up anywhere as I get in this car and drive it a bunch. I make sure to put at least 500+ miles on all 3 of my vehicles monthly.

I'll do a 91 tune and a 100 octane tune. Cobb tune will be fully custom

You sir are doing it right.

There's nothing more heart breaking than somebody who goes through all of the work of upgrading turbos & all supporting mods by putting an off-the-shelf tune on it

I'll shut up now and enjoy the updates as they come in.

Thanks!

I'm on my 4th...and get made fun of for being eccentric. I'm like, what the fuck, driving the same car more than one day a week is uncivilized.
Plus, each one is good at something different.

Impala will be sexy as fuck! I love your style...
If I ever go classic it'll be a 65 Continental...I loved it before Entourage even existed.

Hardtop coupe, i don't do verts. Nothing outrageous, not going to do a fully body off or something dirty. Prefer looking for something 'almost' done. Something with a decent paint job where I can just some flake and dolly art on the roof and send out to the hydro shop. I almost came up on a steal a few weeks ago. Was a '64 with an LS swap that was clean, but literally got sold underneath me.

Ironically, the reason I got the porsche was I was bidding on a '62 impala that Jesse James had done for Tyson Beckford and literally lost by like $200 on ebay in the last second. The wife looked at me after and said....go buy a turbo......

Btw. Took it to the track a few weeks back for some good ole fashion 1/4 mile times. I'm nervous to launch hard, and even soft launches it lights all the tires up. My best 60ft was 1.9 and best time was 11.8 @ 127.......
