FIVE WAYS TO MAKE IT BET­TER

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

1 FIT MSDS HEAD­ERS

Th­ese head­ers can be or­dered nickel-plated and ce­ramic-coated, and can add an ex­tra 40bhp to the older 16v en­gine. It’s not an easy up­grade, be­cause there’s not a lot of space to work in the 928 en­gine bay, and you’ll have to re­move the cross­mem­ber. For fur­ther de­tails, visit ms­dsinc.com

POLYURETHANE BUSHES

Pow­er­flex pro­duces a wide range of polyurethane bushes, and th­ese are known to be long-last­ing and some­what cheaper than Porsche bushes (see pow­er­flex.co.uk for prices for a 928 set). They’re also said to im­prove the driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, pro­long tyre life, and help re­duce brak­ing in­sta­bil­ity.

3 IM­PROVE THE RIDE

Most 928s have a good ride, but if you’d like to change it then Bil­stein, Koni and Avo all pro­duce a range of af­ter­mar­ket dampers that a spe­cial­ist can adapt to your spec­i­fi­ca­tion – whether that’s for the track or sim­ply to firm-up its on-road per­for­mance.

4 STOP­PING POWER

Though the brakes are sharp as stan­dard, if you’re look­ing for a bit more bite, Black Di­a­mond grooved and drilled discs are avail­able, and start at about £270 a pair.

5 FORCED IN­DUC­TION

For most peo­ple around 300bhp will be more than enough, but if you want a bit more poke there are sev­eral tun­ing up­grade routes you can take, some more ex­treme than others. Kuhn Per­for­mance Tech­nolo­gies, for ex­am­ple, can add two tur­bos to your 928. The re­sult? 750bhp. Cu­ri­ous? Find out more on­line (kuh­n­per­for­mance.com) and talk to a Porsche club for ad­vice.
