Going to give the 928 a few mods this summer. I plan on Eibach springs, Chip, full exhaust, and maybe 17's. What would you guys do? :-?

Hmm, can't really say. I've never owned one, and I probably won't own one in the future either. But I can think of a few different side-skirt replacements along with the front/rear spoiler changes that would make the 928 look very good. Other than that I'd give it the exhasts, better breaks, and huge silver rims. Possibly an engine mod as well.

for the 928, an intake is advisable, a big bore throttle body helps out too. Free flow exhaust sounds amazing with the silky V8 screaming through.

I am trying to keep the appearnace as stock as I can. I want to throw a larger Porsche wheel on there just to give it an updated look and better handling. With the 928 you can put 18's on there but it is not advisble by the Porsche factory. I was thinking about putting the Big Red's on there but I all ready have the S4 calipers which stop me just fine. Plenty of time to think it over, any ideas on exhaust type? I can't find any companies that make something for the beast.

Why go so far in modification of a 928 though? Why not go for a 996 or something?

a 928 is an amazing car, it represents a whole different philosophy for porsche, it has its own feel, and with a 345hp 5.3L 32V V8, there is some fun to be had there.

Is that the same engine that's used in the RUF Boxster mod.?

I don't really like the sound of Borla, I want something with a little bit more growl. Well before I bought a 996 I would buy a 993. I love the 928, its a great car all I want is more performance out of it. To get a 993 that I really want any way, a 97/98 C4S, I would be looking at high $50's to high $60's. The 928 mods would cost me at most $6,000. Are we the only three who post? :)

Put on some OEM 996 Turbo style wheels with late model Corvette sized tires.

aren't 996 turbo wheels 18s?

Turbo "style" wheels come in 17 and 18", in widths from 7.5 - 12" I think. More tires seem to be available in 17".

18's are a no go on the 928 and there is no 911 wheel that will properly fit the 928 so I have been told. I like the 993 Cup II (i think that is the name) but I am going with 17in BBS LMs and lower profile SO-3s.

BBS's are really nice looking (atleast on BMWs). I think they'll work for ya on the 928. Are the larger rims for looks or performance?

PorschePlayboy928

All performance. I love the BBS wheel but it looks like all the ones I pick out are 18in only (RS-GT and LM) :cry: . The only thing I think I will change for looks are the "elephant ears" mirrors, I wouldn't mind swaping those for a pair off of the GTS.

I think he is talking about the 993 Turbo Twists?

High $50s' or $60s' for a '97-'98 C4S? Those sound like Turbo prices. I'm sure you could find a 993 Carrera 4 S for alot cheaper than that. I think I have seen wide 17" wheels on the 928 before.

I need to move to your area! Around here you can't get into a 993 Turbo for anything less than $80G's. Excellence has the 97 S valued at $103,000! I think I am going to go with ?18x9.5, and 18x10.5 rear? who knows?

I am down to a few.

those prices are for the Turbo not the C4S. I never go by KBB, if you pick up a copy of Excellence they give you a better idea of what your Porsche is worth. This month happened to be 912s and Turbos. I know what the C4S is listed as but good luck finding one with low, 0-10,000 miles, "true" perfect condition for that much.

the 18's were a no go but I am thinking what the heck. I am sure Porsche says they shouldn't be fitted to the car, but I am sure they would say that about a lot of other mods to Porsches too. :-?

Yeah, I'm thinking the manufacturer is always on the conservative side. Even if 18"s were a pinch, you could always go with a lower profile tire.
