981 conversion #011 currently does not have a name; what is even more of a travesty is that this car's owner had to wait another 2 weeks for his baby to arrive due to a mechanical failure with one of the transport company haulers. With only 2K miles on the odometer, this car made a 5000 mile round trip to and from Seattle for the 3.8L swap that is now bolted to its existing Cayman S PDK 7-speed transmission. The car owner shipped the Techart wing base, uprights and wing directly to the shop where they were sent out for paint and installed on the car along with additional power modifications in the form of newly redesigned stainless steel Cargraphic "Sport" longtube manifolds that are mated to a Cargraphic 981 stainless steel Sport Rear Silencer muffler system. An IPD competition plenum and BMC filters were added for increased air flow while the front brakes were replaced with larger 991 3.8L Carrera S 6-piston calipers and 340mm brake discs; the OE brake pads were retained while Pagid RS29 brake pads were sourced for track duty. With the addition of the aftermarket ECU from Germany, the power and torque curves have been smoothed out, the RPM limit has been increased to 7960 and power output at the crank is estimated at 415hp. The owner's wish was to have more power than the upcoming GT4 street car while maintaing the PDK so that the car can be driven to/from work every day in stop/go traffic without shifting.
