996 overheating, want more power


Vehicle Information: Year: 2000; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 20K miles;

I have the pleasure of owning a 'OO 996 coupe, and I did a lot of looking around for the beloved 993 before my purchase, but finally gave in to the water cooled cars. I figured that the fellas in Stuggart knew best and that this car would be better in most senses. Problem no.1, I was very unhappy to realize that the 3.4 litre motor had no serious potential for upgrades. Problem no.2, I decided to take part in track events and quickly realized that after a few hard laps, the water temp heads up into the red zone almost as fast as my tach!! Is it just me, or am I better off switching to a 993?
