It was owned originally by DRM Racing.No infor on that.
By January 2006 it was in the hands ofTRG
In late 2009 it was sold to Farnbacher Loles
and the engine
returned to Porsche motorsports for rebuild after sustaining crash
Apparently it was not rebuild able and the
went to Kelly Moss, Porsche Motorsports built a new motor number
699 to 2008
transmission was completely rebuilt
by PMNA at the same time.
The car was sold to Carl Toffelmeyer and at 22
hours it had
an issue with the resonance flap, which came loose and was
ingested requiring a
top end rebuild.While
being rebuilt it
was modified to Grand Am/Cup S specs with more aggressive intake
Dual-Resonance intake, 2.125” headers etc. and was dynoed at
441@8500 and 402NM
torque at 6200 RPMs.That’s
41 HP more
than the original motor.

Yeah, I suspect the pre-flight check can be daunting.
Air filter is in the deck lid. The plug is to be removed in the rain
to allow for drainage.
WOW that is a big header.
Well...they are Bremb endurance 380mm (15") despite the
perspective. OUCH. Six-piston Calipers $5100.
EACH! Rotors $508 each. Hats are about $700 each and can
be re-used. Pads haven't even been heat soaked yet.
Rear brakes are 4-piston 380mm as well. Rears are 305s.on
11.5" wheels. I suspect my 12s from the teal car will fit as
there is ample clearance on the inside.
