Dietrich is a 1989 911 Turbo Porsche monster! Dietrich came to us with a seriously unfriendly clutch pedal. The SPEC Stage 3 was like a light switch making him pretty much undriveable. He's got a healthy bump in power thanks to a big intercooler, K27 turbo, some forged JE pistons and 964 cams, but nothing that says he can't be tame enough for the street. The 1989 Turbo has a unique G50/50 transmission which is more 996 than 930. This meant sourcing rare parts to make Dietrich fun to drive again. A KEP Stage 1 pressure plate and a Sachs clutch disc with an upgraded release arm and bearing proved to solve the problem. In addition to replacing the clutch bits, Dietrich had a pesky leak from the number two base gasket. Again, sourcing the best parts possible and rebuilding the left side of the motor, have left Dietrich leak free and fun to drive. While we were in there we also had all the little bits powdercoated and polished to ensure he looks as good as he runs. The twin plug system ensures a clean burn which allowed us to upgrade to a TiAL wastegate running 1bar of boost for both enhanced performance and ultimate reliability. Overall, this is an amazing Porsche with a few very tasteful upgrades making him ready to provide his caretaker with many miles of fun and excitement for years to come.
