BGB 981_005 was purchased with the intention of building a car outfitted for the track with every modification needed while still maintaining the ability to be driven to / from home on the road on a day by day basis. Now residing in Houston, TX the car which never officially got a name arrived in Florida in April 2014 and received a 3.8L 991 engine conversion, IPD competition plenum and Cargraphic "Sport" manifolds with 200 cell catalytics. Once the conversion was complete, we began the Stage 1 track goodies for interior safety and installed the supplied carbon fiber sport bucket seats from the customer's former Boxster Spyder, Schroth enduro belts and the BGB Motorsports 981 4-point harness bar. Underneath the car received Eibach lowering springs, an upgraded Tarett GT3 style sway front bar and 2-piece GT3 style lower control arms and toe links. We did however source a harder rubber inner control arm bushing to maintain some road compliancy AND keep road noise to a minimum. The front brake calipers were upgraded to the 6-piston 991 front caliper and larger 350mm and 325mm front and rear disc assemblies from Girodisc were added. Pagid RS29 brake pads are used for the track while the owner leaves the OE Porsche pads on for the street. A 2nd set of 18" track wheels were added to the mix and life was made easier when they were mounted on our tried and tested MSI coated metric wheel studs. The car returned for another round of upgrades in 2015 that featured an upgraded Tarett rear 981 sway bar and a torque biasing differential from Guard Transmission.

In its first outing ever, this car lapped Virginia International Raceway at a pace of 2:03s on 1 year old tires before it received the much needed limited slip differential; speed at the end of the back straightaway read 162mph but we think it was probably closer to 157mph. The only competition that day was from a poorly driven 997.2 GT3 Cup car. Both car builder and owner were very impressed.
