FIVE WAYS TO MAKE IT BETTER
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
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.
