I just read that for $245,000 you get a GT2 which will pull 1.07 Gs in turns. What would it take to get the same lateral performance from a 914 and what would the upgrades entail?

no where near 245K! Suspension, flairs, and wider wheel tire combo. Even at that the wider wheels and tires would probably do it but you would need the flairs to fit them.

Grantsfo gets 1.5 Gs from his 914-6 with flairs, wide rims and race rubber. I'm sure eider rims are needed but not as wide as full race.

I've gotten 1.49g at Barber: 12" wide slicks rear, 11" wide front.
Some days I think I HAVE spent that $245k on my car.... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/icon8.gif)

Those are probably the good days.
I wonder if anyone has done a scientific assessment of what improves cornering and how much. Run R tires and record Gs. Re-install street tires and add front and rear sway bars if not on already or race shocks. Go back to stock and stiffen springs. Lower car, etc and see what everything does. Then do them all together and see what effect it has.
