Hi dear Squadra 916-members,

iŽd like to introduce myself and present my project of a spider 3.8 ...

The project basis on 3.2 Spider 2003 and starts in june 2012. In preparation of this motor conversion I changed the spring/coilover compo to Eibach/Bilstein, which brings more drivabilty than my Novitec/OEM compo, a Q2 and Brembo GT-Brake system front/rear mit EBC-red and goodrich steelfex.

The tires I changed to Toyo R888 for really nice results on the street....

Here are some pics.

Exhaust system is a ragazzon with normal big middle silencer and end silencer 2x70 mm, which sound good, but hopefully after the conversion a little bit louder.

the engine is now ready to install
more details from the engine:

based on the crank of 3.2
-with lightweight 101 mm pistons and liners (see picture)
-lightweight THS conrods H-Beam
-cr 12:1
-optimal gasflowed Heads
-special adapted headgasket
-C&B cams
-AutoDelta manifolds without precats
-Carbon plenum made by selcuk
-thottle body Ferrari F430 (84mm)

We discuss a lot and ... 340 Bhp + are realistic???

The Engine is build for 102 oct. Aral ultimate....

For the first 1000 km's we use the stock ecu, afterwards we look for an aftermarket-Ecu like Adaptronic or Trijekt! Depends on the specialists who will find the best Solution for it.

The pistons/liners are really special lightweight from CPS Italy for higher rev!

For transmission i use just a new clutch from Sachs-Performance!

Topspeed is not really important for a Spider, or?"
