    My RCR "DPE-962X" 8500 RPM -1500HP Engine Build *lots of pics*

    crash, 911 engines use Nikasil, and 928 engine use Alusil. Yes it`s a really strong material, but as you say it costs about the same to replate the original liners as it does to have new much bigger ones made :stunned: I`ve seen Alusil bores after 200.000km still showing the "45` stripes"...

    My RCR "DPE-962X" 8500 RPM -1500HP Engine Build *lots of pics*

    OK, so there you go Dusty! For a more complete 962 replica, I think you should go for a 928 GTS engine, change the cylinder liners for steel ones, that way you have much more pistons to choose from (the std liners are Alusil plated) A gentleman at Rennlist forums called Hacker-Pschorr built a...

    My RCR "DPE-962X" 8500 RPM -1500HP Engine Build *lots of pics*

    Now you`r talking :thumbsup: Although the 997 RSR uses a 4L engine whitch is supposed to be fairly maxed out on the bores, I guess you could stroke it to maybe 4.2. I guess you all know that Porsche was working on putting the 928 32V engine in the 962 for the 88 season of Le Mans, so...

    SLC exhaust options

    Hi Fran and others, I thought the picture you posted was an SL-C with bundle snakes, but i se now that it`s not, OUPS! My bad....... Yes I know the X-brace is an integral part of the chassis, but do you think it would be possible to modify the transmission (Ricardo, G50, Mendy) so that you...

    SLC exhaust options

    My first thought was to put the muffler where Fran put the 2 single mufflers on the #18 car on top of the transmission. I understand it`s a really tight sqeez, and I was just tossing out an idea :shy: Either way I think we are talking some serious heat shilding of the FG, unless one God...

    Hi there Rob! I LOVE your car and build log!! Please take a look at the link below. The circular marking on your alu.fire wall, is that for an intake tube to the engine? I ask because that is what I would like to do if I choose to go for an SL-C...

    SLC exhaust options

    Hello gents! I must in all honesty say that I find it really strange that a well built car like the SL-C does not have a good solution for a muffled exhaust system. I meen, look at the #18 car ! Looks like Fran & Gang pulled it off really nice. Yes I can see the difficulty making a functional...

    Anyone got an RCR SL-C race car?

    Hi ArtGirl! That`s nothing to be ashamed of, far from it! It just goes to show what a true gearhead you are ;) I too have to admit that the best part of my spare time goes to study both the GTM and the SL-C. My wife is not impressed by this, but now I know what to tell her when she complains...

    Yes I hear you guys, "it`s just the way it goes" right ? Somehow I have never commited to anything so strong that I couldn`t see the truth :lipsrsealed: Yes one tend to be able to overlook (some) flaws in the favorite thing/car/girl/++ don`t we? ;)
