Cayenne Mods pt 2

leave a comment »

Today we had a little downtime at the shop so I worked on the wife’s Cayenne some. We’ve had the brakes in for a while and the Kriessieg exhaust came in this morning. I put it up on the lift and took off the wheels. Then something really scared me. We looked at the balancing on the wheels, it was all over the wheel. It was crazy, like just added some random weights every where. So we properly balanced the wheels, got the lowering right on it. The brakes went on with ease, we went with Brembos. They’re insane on the Cayenne. I went with Yellow calipers just to make it look somewhat OEM because I like how the yellow calipers look. I wish I could pick up the factory PCCBs for the Cayenne, but the Brembos were a few thousand cheaper.

The Kriessieg exhaust is such an amazing piece of work. It sounds ridiculous and is really all that it is cracked up to be. It has a nice rasp to it. It has the valvetronic, cutout, on it. I just left it open and didn’t bother telling the wife how to close it. She likes how it sounds as is. If we’re in the city or going on a trip I might close it. That’s the only really advantage I can see with it. On second thought, I will teach her how to open and close it.
