911T into 2.8


Thanks for the input. The car is with Dave at TRE. He has redone the suspension and brakes ... I will run the Targa Cali this year and then focus on the engine. You pretty much have confirmed what I "thought". Like I said I have seen a car done with a 7R, it was an old build but cool.

Hopefully when I come out for the Targa I can stop by your shop and discuss a build if your schedule allows.

Thanks again.

Henry - getting a 95mm cylinder to fit in a 7R (or earlier) case spigot sounds like it calls for more than a little ingenuity!

The 93mms got awfully thin down in the spigot, didn't they? Maybe still had enough left to remove another 1mm each side? But the stud spacing? There is enough meat up there where it matters to narrow the distance between the stud borings and the wall that extra mm? Wow

The SS is that much better than the LS a guy could have for a lot less work/$ (unless he bought real 2.8 heads, of course)?
