    Finally got the heat exchanger plumbing in. Just in time for 90 plus degree heat. Come next fall, I'm ready.

    haul,
    We're still fine tuning the ECU with the new exhaust. When finished I'll try and learn how to post a video on youtube.

    We had our annual charity car show here in Denver yesterday. I had the good fortune to meet Dieter Inzenhofer of Andial fame as he came by and checked out my car. He was gracious to sign a Porsche 70 year plaque given to all who showed their Porsche's at the event. All in all it was a fine day.

    Hurly Haywood was in Denver doing a book signing a couple months ago. He was very interested to see my car. While he was sitting in it he told me he is getting a POLO installed in one of his speedsters.

    PMB’s first SWB’ed 42 mm rear piston calipers!
    I wanted more brake. Going down hill at speed from 12000 foot mountain passes for 5 and sometime 10 plus miles really works the brakes. Eric at PMB told me a 1.6 ratio was what I wanted. So I did some research. I read that the 914 front calipers had 42 mm pistons, as do the rear late 80’s Carreras. I talked to Eric and he said I need the early 914 fronts. I did some more research, found some brake charts and found the early Boxster non S and the non S 964 black calipers matched to the calipers I had Eric build and would give me a perfect 1.6 ratio.
    SWB non S have 35 mm pistons, the S 38 mm and the same pads, these 42 mm and a bigger pad.
    My main motivation is to increase performance and at the same time if possible, find a different path.

    About a 1000 views since I posted this caliper. I wonder it Eric's received a couple of calls?
