New member saying hi

Hi All ,
Picked up my 3.4 s 2007 about a month ago now and very pleased with it , my previous car was a Maserati 4200 a completely different beast in different ways a little quicker and more dramatic but no way as capable as the Cayman .I was a keen member of a forum to , attending many events and several trips to lemans for the 24 H .I thought I would miss the rawness and pure power and kick in the back that the V8 gives but not at all , would like to achieve a little more mid range torque though so been in touch with design 911 for the IPD Plenum and gt3 throttle body . Anyway the first port of call was to fit a Remus wolf cat back exhaust with the carbon tips , wow !just love the sound it makes now . Anyway hope to come along to some events inc track days and be a active member .
 
cheers MAV

    Hi Mav,
     
    Welcome to the Club and to this section of the forum.
     
    Interesting to hear your comments about the Cayman versus the Maser. Judging by your exhaust mod it seems as though you're missing the raw sound of the Maser but hope you continue to enjoy the new car.
     
    If you're going down the IPD plenum/GT3 TB route you may want to consider a remap as well, not so much for increased power but more to achieve a less restrictive throttle response.

    Hi jeff
     
    thanks for the welcome , yes you are right about the map I am awaiting a price  from design 911 . I think there must know of some one local to them there use . There are quoting around 20 to 35 bhp more but of corse that’s not the whole story ref maps as you say better throttle response etc .

    Mav,
     
    You may want to take a look at this Softronic (US) offering:
     
    http://www.softronicsoftw...-performance-software/
     
    I would think that ~20bhp increase is more realistic. I doubt that you'll notice much difference in everyday driving other than an improved throttle response, so not a lot of bang for your buck.
     
    Of course, if you really want to push the boat out you could take the turbo route..!

    Hi jeff
     
    i have already been in touch with softronic and there have advised not to go down the route of the gt3 throttle body which I find strange as there offer this option on there website . Their also recommending the bmc filter instead of the designtek induction kit , apparently less restrictive with better airflow .so who to believe ? Anyway I will find out who design 911 recommend for the remap and start a conversation with them direct before pulling the trigger to see if the gains are worth it or not . Ref TPC , would love this but 10k spent on a 14k car doesn’t make logic to me and already spent 1300 on the Remus which would be redundant on the tpc turbo conversion . Any offer things I could do to improve the car , I find the car sits very high , could do with lowering a bit , any recommendations on springs etc .

    I'd be really interested to hear how you get on with this.
     
    I've be considering doing the IPD plenum with GT3 TB and switching to a single-mass flywheel and sprung clutch on mine.
     
    I suspect that the exhaust (just a Carnewal GT) will need high-flow cats in order to really get the full benefit though.

    Ordered the parts yesterday except the remap , need a little more research into that may go down the design tek route as it’s not a generic map but custum to your set up .
