    GT3 Ranger / Lock n Load Champion Motorsport 997 GT3 RS 4.2-4.3 liter engine build

    Yes it's a custom build. We're taking a page or two from the Manthey playbook (4.2/4.3L build).
    The oil pump clearance is the main issue in displacement limitation.

    Regarding the Porsche 911 platform/design, IMHO it is an iconic look. One thing has remained unchanged in all generations of 911's is the rear window shape.

    Congrats on the project Ranger, Champion is a first rate tuner/shop/dealer.

    I haven't seen a 4.2 or 4.3 done yet so I look forward to yours being completed and the results! Keep us updated.

    Definitely will keep you informed. This will be a major project. Not just the engine build but there will be Guard Transmission tranny rebuild, Ohlin coilover suspension and planned weight reduction.
    More to come.

    Quick pics of the RS arriving at Champion Motorsport.
    Click here to enlargeClick here to enlarge
    Click here to enlargeClick here to enlargeClick here to enlargeClick here to enlargeClick here to enlargeClick here to enlarge

    The 997.1 RS made 394 rwhp as the baseline.
    Components are trickling in from all the different manufacturers.
    The RS will undergo the engine build from a 3.6L to 4.2/4.3L, redesign header/exhaust system from M&M along with full tranny re-gearing, Guard LSD, Cup shifter & shift cables, Ohlin 4 way coilover suspension, all out efforts for weight reduction (goal is 2,800 lbs), HRE building new 18" monoblock wheels plus many other smaller components.
    There's so much happening simultaneously that I am going crazy so is my wallet :-(
    Here's a pic of the Ohlins:Click here to enlarges
    As the build progresses with more components pic will be posted.
    The heart of the matter, the 4.2 crankshaft, is soon the arrive. I will not disclose yet but you'll never imagine where it's being built and I'm totally cool with it.

    Peace ya'll

    Yup that was a 3.6L 997.1 RS.
    The dyno pulls were always run on pump gas (93 oct).
    Only mod was the M&M headers and race exhaust. I know the grand majority around the forums think M&M is not even worthy to include in a discussion about exhausts. To bad ... their grave loss.

    Tell us more about what M&M has available as I have not heard of them.

    With a 3.6 I think this build makes a lot of sense. You are looking to get in the high 400 wheel range naturally aspirated I take it?

    This will be a bore & stroke build. Significant head work and intake manifold is being redone. Total new design header/exhaust system from M&M.
    Compression planned to be 13:1. There are other internal machining work that Champion wants quiet. The rwhp will soon be realized. Re-gearing the entire tranny and close to 2,800 lbs should make for a quick RS.

    I will get info for you on M&M German exhaust manufacturer.

    Here's the RS with the prior M&M system in Jun 2010.

    Can be but will be more specifically be tuned for 93 and 100 oct.
    Original figures were insane after the bore/stroke piston design came out to be 14.8:1. Those were stupid numbers.

    What amazes me is that the 400 horsepower holds for about 1500 RPM. That's an amazing engine.

    M&M develops hardcore race exhaust systems. They're a German company who design and build top notch systems but do not have any interest in advertising. Those in the Porsche race world know who M&M is and what they bring to a race motor.
    The only US distributor is FVD. The above header/exhaust designs were developed for the build.

    This is top notch stuff so I don't really understand what they don't advertise? I guess it doesn't matter if FVD does it for them?

    The engine components have all arrived and the special machining has been done.

    Re-threading the cases for A1 studs (longer & thicker studs)
    https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&i...5&disp=safe&zw

    Lots more will be done.
    I love the HRE P40S wheels but they only come in 19". Spoke with HRE and they built me 18" P40S monoblocks.
    Still striving for that vehicle weight of 2,800 ? Will be difficult but not giving up.

    More later :-)
