2009 trip to Surrey Rolling Road

On a (rare) beautiful December morning, six 928 owners headed for Surrey Rolling Road in Chobham. As it turned out, we had a fantastic mix of pretty much every engine configuration that Porsche made for the 928. This was going to be a rare opportunity to compare the power and torque of the different engine versions fitted to 928's.

I thought it was about time to update it and do it on a budget. I expect I could have spent much more on it and included amplifiers and replace all of the speakers with components sets. I decided to replace 4 speakers, the 2 10cm speakers in the front doors and the 17cm speakers in the rear behind the seats, remove the old amp if installed and power the speakers from the head unit. The Apline speakers came to £75, the Kenwood radio was also around £75 and then I spent about £20 at Maplins.
