God. Love the taught narrow bodyness of the 996GT3. It's just so no nonsense.

V small pipes, it seems. Is that the result of noise regs?

A Cup car with a novice sticker? Isn't that a contradiction in terms?

Is that the yellow one with cross?

And of course, obvious question - what was power and torque? How close to std RS is a cup engine? Thanks

hmmm,
That's a good bit short of what an 03-05 car should be making (hence my asking what year it was on your other post).
you might want to give the owner a heads up so he can get it onto modas for a look over. it might be something as simple as it not seeing full throttle at full throttle, the position sensor can go off pretty easily.
fwiw, theres two options for cup exhausts availsble and the quieter is 103db. It might be that that's on. There's limited options for centre exit on a 996. Standard GT3 exits at each side.

He was happy with the result only expecting 381 BHP he has taken the race exhaust off and running a standard to get on track days ..
