Well its offical, I pick up my new Cayman S tomorrow morning. I got a pretty good trade in for my R considering the miles I have on it. Its going to be a long night, I can tell you.<p> I've been hanging out on this forum since 2003 and unless someone minds I'll continue to. Hey somebody's got to keep you guys that want to mix the BSR PPC together with a 3"DP in line.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

RhaRdeR are you selling any parts? Nice choice BTW! I'm interested in the DP if you have it and are interested in selling it.

My R is in pretty good condition except for the paint on the front end chipped up and a scrape in the rear bumper. My dealership treated me right as far as I'm concerned. they sell Volvos and Porsches so that might have helped. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Sorry to hear you've gotten rid of the R, Jay, I had fun watching you boom around WG this past May. <p>Enjoy the Cayman and I'll look for you at the next Trackmasters there!

Re: Another Goodbye to the R (RhaRdeR)

Jay - <p>So sorry to hear about your R, but happy for you on the Cayman S. Great car, completely different (won't be taking too many passengers), but for a coupe, sweet choice!<p>Did I read somewhere that you had problems with BSR + DP even with high octane gas on the track? During your Dyno session you mentioned it was fine. <p>My friends car that had BSR + DP ran fine for months in Germany including autobahn and lots of Nurburgring, mostly on ARAL 100 (95-96 octane) but sometimes on 98 RON (93-94 octane). Of course he also had CAI, filter and exhaust so a slightly different set up.

I didn't know they were discounting 'em yet. In fact, I just checked over at the Porsche board and they're even discounting 997s now. <p>Geez, you sure know how to complicate someone's decision-making process! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

I added 5 gal on 100 octane gas and gave it a chance to mix in and the pinging did go away. I thought this is great and I'll just run 100 octane for my next Trackmasters event at WG. Well I started getting a bad hesitation on the track while accelerating and Russel said he saw puffs of smoke coming out of the exhaust, not blue smoke, just puffs when accelerating hard. I deduced this to be detonation and reverted back to stock program for the rest of the two day event. I continued to have bad hesitation problems once I got home. This was not at 3k RPM like in the past but higher up in the rpm band. It was pretty bad almost undriveable. I went to the dealer and had it checked. There was a bad module, I think that controlled the turbo boost. Once replaced all was fine.<br> In hind sight, this might have been my problem at WG and not the PPC/3"DP combo. So, someone else here will have to experiment now but just keep in mind, you burn off the top of a few pistons, you are paying out of your own pocket for the repair. Regardless, 93 octane on a dailey basis is expensive enough, I can't imagine running 100 octane at $7 a gallon. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Another Goodbye to the R (RhaRdeR)

Good luck with that Cayman S. Isn't a Cayman smaller than the 900 series body and isn't it a Boxter hard top - sorta ? The Porshe site show it has 295 HP in stock form. So I guess you will be modding it some. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Did you remove the 3" DP and reinsall the stock one before trading ?

Re: Another Goodbye to the R (barrysharp)

enjoy that car!! The Cayman S is a VERY nice car. I hope you find the time to stop by SS and give us a detailed write up on how you like it and how it drives..how fast it is...handling..all the nitty gritty.. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>sound like you got a good trade. 21k in trade isn't bad at all given the mileage was almost 60k...<p>

Re: (JRL)

I like the Cayman but need to have the 2+2 jump seats of the 911. Wow 80K something the way you want it, imagine what a Carrera 4S would be optioned for you JRL<p>My next car without a doubt will be a 4S Carrera 2+2 in special grey paint<br>(close to our Titanium paint)<p>Porsche's from 2005 on are such an improvement.

Re: (Helmut Ranff)

Why would I want a 4S?<br>I never drive a Porsche in the snow, added weight, expense, etc.<br>A Turbo sure, need to keep it on the road <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> without thinking too much these days
