Need more Power..

I picked up this 1970 911E with a wide body upgrade. It has the stock 2.2L. It looks great! It sounds fantastic!! But it needs more power!!!!!! Yes I bought it for looks over practicality.. I am a Porsche noob... So where should I start? Somebody told me to go with 2 Webbers. Is it easyer to put in a newer larger engine, 3.2L Turbo????? What will fit with little or no modification? I don't need to win any races but a little wheel spin off the line would be nice...lol
Any advice would be appriciated. Thanks.

500-600 HP Turbo may do the trick!

Congrats on the KOOL car! This engine is for sale...


How about a Stroker, 3.5L Turbo Engine with EFI

I posted a tread on Pelican awhile back...lots of interest, but no one has stepped up to the plate yet...link here.

Take it from someone who has been there.... sell you call and buy the real thing, the 911E will not have the transmission, brakes, suspension, and other stuff that you will need to complete the conversion. You just can not stick a turbo engine in that car, and then be safe. The above mentioned engine is actually one hell of an engine, and would be cheaper than if you had built it yourself. I guaruntee you will have atleast 40 grand or so into that 911E to do it right... and for that price, you could have had a VERY nice 930... there are several right now for sale in the mid to low 30's that are rocketships......

I would sell that car and buy a real 930 that would hold value in the future.

I have buddies who DE with me and have spent tons of dough in a never ending cycle started with installing a larger engine in their tub, only to then find they need to completely upgrade trans, brakes, suspension, cooling to get the car back in balance with all systems. They will never come close to recovering their investment on resale, and may actually have a harder time finding a buyer.

I'd keep your car and enjoy it, perhaps toss in a 3.0 or 3.2, etc. normally aspirated engine. Or, sell the car and buy a 930. Less hassle.

Of course, if you buy a 930, you'll get into a never ending cycle of upgrades to the engine, suspension, cooling, trans, .. you get the picture...

Ok, so bigger may not be better for this ride. I don't need to go 200 mph but 0 - 60 a little faster would be nice.

I would say.. put a 3.0L in there with carbs, twin plugged, and have fun with it.... Drive it for awhile, and then if you still have your heart set on a 930...sell it, and go shoppin....

he said he bought it mostly for looks and is a P noob - he doesn't need or is not looking for a 930 / 930powah

drop in a 3L lump and drive the doors off it

Another trick is to swap out the ring and pinion gear and/or change gear ratios. This will affect acceleration and may be all you need.

If your 2.2L engine is in good shape pull it and sell outright. Early models are heating up and there is a market for it. Forget about overpriced hotrodded 3.0-3.2L motors. Go find a low miles stock 3.2L with Motronic, Steve Wong chip it and have fun. Your light weight, 901 box car will give you lots of enjoyment while you save for a 930.

Don't ditch the engine, especially if it's matching numbers!

Restore the car to it's original form, it will then be worth as much or more than a 930...

Too far gone for that. Early models are hot but restoring them is becoming very expensive assuming they were never modified.

You think so? couldn't be more than 10-15 to get the body restored? less than turning it into a 930 wannabe or as much as getting a decent 3.0-3.2 in there. A long hood E will appreciate, a bastard car wont... Cars in your country are much cheaper though, a tidy 911E fetches around 100K over here now, a nice 930 would be around that too so restoration costs are on a different scale.

Cars that were butchered back in the day that are now desirable are being returned to their original glory like the 75 Carrera (Euro 2.7 MFI) below. Someone had transformed it into a 930 replica at some stage, once restored it sold for 150K.... Ohhhh the horror!!
