Shipping within California is fine. Just curious what are options are, since it will be a long oversized box.



Interestingly it cost me 95 to ship the originals to them and I made a wood crate.. This was through ups
.

We are talking about boxes with foam supports throughout the box..

So thanks to Glenn I was able to have his factory GT lines scanned and there is a company in California making them for me.. We are still hashing out materials as they feel the current Brass on the market is not good quality.. Looking like stainless then yellow zinc plated will be what we go with. We are having 50 sets made and 4 sets spoken for already..

They will be bending next week and start shipping the following.

Price needs to be finalized based off of the material we end with but will be less then 650 a set and probably less then that.

So how many would be interested?



I am interested...although would have preferred brass.
Can you tell me what "the set" consists of.
And thanks
Paul


Paul after speaking with them I felt to much liability with going brass.. I couldn't deal with a potential engine failure based off of a brass quality issue.


Sorry
Too much egg nog...

To my knowledge no company makes anything that replicates the factory GT setup.. All the kits I am aware of are just their own version.. Mine are to replicate factory in fit and function.

The front Patrick cooler setup would be a good match but the connections would be different.. I will be making a turn key setup as the next step.

Ben - since you are doing the GT lines, will you also do the GT console and pressure relief valve. They are hard to track down and rather pricey.

I may but again would need samples to get castings made etc..

For my car I will do a hybrid so to speak with adaptation of a 911 t stat.. Its hard to say at this point how much interest beyond the hard GT lines there will be.????

If it hasn’t been said already, thanks for this Ben. Between the oil tanks, heat exchangers, and engine tins, plus the exhaust, you have been key to my conversion project!

I still wonder why the oil system was plumbed that way vs the conventional 911 setup?

Glenn any thoughts?

I sold a similar/same setup from a 911 “69S. Sold for $2k. I believe Porsche used it on a lot of there race cars.
