HELP Advice on a possible 996 purchase

Hello gents. I am currently thinking of purchasing a 996T with a pretty nice list of upgrades. Would like you guys opinion on the quality of the build as well as price. This will not be a dd for me, more like a weekend, moonlight fun car. I do occasionally take road trips to TN and run through some nice mountain roads. Question will any of these mods cause overheating or other mechanical failure on say a 400 mile round trip? sorry to sound like a newb. This will be my first P car. Thanks again for any responses guys and cheers.

This is a rare opportunity to own a reliable Porsche with super car power!! No expense spared in this build with all quality parts which include a fully built motor and Evolution motorsports GT700 Kit!! This combination allows for a 700hp AWD beast!! Everything can be confirmed by vin# with Evolution motorsports. Bigger turbos, upgraded intercoolers, upgraded fuel system, evoms tune, spec clutch, Roth short shifter, KW full suspension, fabspeed exhaust, 6pot front and 4pot rear brembo brakes, 2 piece rotors, 3 piece champion wheels wrapped in Michelin tires, and carbon fiber wing!

HP Output Pump Fuel: 702 HP
TQ Output Pump Fuel: 693 TQ
GT700 Signature Turbo Kit:
Hitachi V-Flow Air Intake System
EVOMSit Software specific to EVOMS GT700 Signature Turbo Kit
Diverter Valve Pair (90 deg)
Alpha GT28 V3 Turbochargers (TiAL Sport-require water cooling)

Seems like a quality build. As for overheating or problems just make sure normal stuff is up kept and you should be worry free. Not a deal breaker but paperwork on the build would be ideal. The tan looks good on the blue too.
Good luck
Shawn

What's the mileage? The spec clutch is a bit of an on off switch, it does hold power well though. It seems a bit pricey but does look good.

parts are all well matched, they're all just bolt on's.. but yeah, the clutch is a question but the car looks great. 58 is too high 49 is a steal. 52 tops! if under 35k miles.

mileage will tell the tale. e.g. what you will do "sooner", rather than "later" vis a vis regular "upkeep" or trans refresh etc. gl, if you do get it.

Ok this is a 2001 with 47k miles. I did think the price was a bit high thanks for the heads up I should be getting a PM record and documentation on the build today. Will post when I receive them. So you guys think maybe that clutch is questionable or just grabby? Thanks

I have a spec clutch in my car and it's very on/off but controllable, the good thing is it'll hold the power. Be prepared to stall it a few times, I must have stalled 5-6 times when I test drive mine it was embarrassing.

I agree with the price being a bit high as well based off the color and the price I had assumed it was a late model.

The build has CMW pistons and gt3 crankshaft. The build was done by Svoboda Motorsports in Miami FL. I am still waiting on all records will update you guys and thanks for the heads up. I will try to contact Svoboda tomorrow but with the storm. I don't know

It looks like a solid build if it does have rods and studs. Maybe 55k would be a good selling price.

Evoms responded to my thread on rennlist. I should have a good picture of the complete mod history and if any internals were changed i.e. Rods etc .. Thank you guys again I really like this car but I'm starting wonder why is the owner selling he says he needs to free up some capital makes sense. Anywho anything else besides a PPI and a good test drive as well as extensive research on the build that I can do to protect myself before purchase please guys let me know. I will update as soon as EVOMS or the seller gets back to me with some hard evidence 😎

Take it for what it's worth, NADA's sole business is about reporting car valuation. The say this car is worth between $29.5K and $31.9K trade in value for average to very good condition. My last 3 Porsches were purchased below average trade in value and all were much newer with lot lower miles.

NADA values are for stock unmolested cars. It's your job to determine if the mods make it worth less or more than stock. Most buying a high dollar car, Porsche, Maserati, Ferrari, top tier BMW, Audi, Merc, etc. want it close to 100% stock. A modded Subaru, Civic, Fiesta may be worth more to the right person.

So, say the car is worth $30K to $31K, and anything you are paying above this is for the "Ah factor" in your eyes for the mods. What are the mods worth? Remember, they are old, used, not warranted, prone to issues in the future with extremely expensive repair potential. This modded example was someone's dream car that they decided to dump and they are attempting to recoup a fraction of what they spent.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying not to mod your car. I have KV coilovers, SSK, RWD only, and others, everything I want. But if it was time to sell, I'd take a weekend and put it back 100% to stock for an easy and quick sell.
