Nice work.
I've done the pipe swap recently (side to side and end to end, as the "legs" are different lengths). I used a heat gun to release the stuck nuts because the alloy expands more than the...

Ah, very helpful as doing this currently.

I don't think the inner pad will need clearanced much because the origanal 944na caliper mount has spare metal so could be thinned by a mm or so. The...

They are on my to-do list.

But not the Porsche part, I prefer the BMW part which uses a banjo bolt with 25psi check valve and a separate jet. The jet is reversed on the bolt to point the right way.

Lanner,

Sorry, but any chance you can detail the rear setup? Ie how the 225 fits under the stock fenders?
So I would guess there is narrow 944 hubs on steel arms (+22mm), riding with 8 et50ish...

I wouldn't go too crazy with the burnouts though. Replacing the clutch pack with "cup spec" (not the crappy road clutches) costs over £600 from Porsche.

Wally's LSDiff is the motorsport version which is tighter than an inappropriate simile.
