THE TEAM STEVE BEN­NETT 996 C2/944 LUX

It’s full steam ahead on the 996 now, what with a bit of dosh in my pocket from sell­ing the 944. The air-con is blow­ing cold and fancy new CSF cool­ing rads have been fit­ted. Oh, and there’s an Oh­lins kit to fit.

KEITHSEUME 912/6 ‘EL CHUCHO’

Things are run­ning well, al­though there is still an im­prove­ment to be made on the warm-up cy­cle of the fuel man­age­ment pro­gramme. Time to dig out the lap­top again... Full report next month.

CHRISHORTON 924S, 944

A new mas­ter cylin­der and a bleed-through of fresh fluid has got the 924S brakes work­ing well again – good job, with the annual test com­ing up – and the 944 is at Bs­mo­tor­sport while I fix up the E39 BMW.

PETER SIMP­SON 356C

I’m just about to at­tach the 356 to a newly bought rollover jig so I can get on with cut­ting out the floors and re­plac­ing them with the new Dansk pan­els that have ar­rived and ready to fit.

BRETT FRASER BOXSTER 3.2S

The Boxster is over­due a ser­vice, but I’m putting off the evil day for fear of what else we might dis­cover while it’s up on the ramps. Creak­ing sus­pen­sion in­di­cates cof­fin arms past their best.

JOHNNY TI­PLER BOXSTER 3.2S

The 996 C2 is gone, long live the Boxster 3.2S. Yes, I missed Mrs T’s 986 Boxster S so much I traded the 996 in for a new kitchen, with enough to spare for an­other. Let the mod­i­fi­ca­tions be­gin.

JEREMY LAIRD CAY­MAN S

After some trou­bling months, fi­nally some good news, as you can see op­po­site. Sort­ing the ex­haust head­ers out for less than a ‘bag of sand’ a re­sult and H&R springs have sorted the sus­pen­sion is­sues.
