Finishing the Pelican Parts 911 RSR Tribute Project

Hello Pelicans!

We have begun working on our very own Porsche 911 RSR Tribute! We have started documentation on it and wanted to share it with the community.

The car was originally built by Tom Woodford under the direction of R Gruppe member Eade Hopkinson. It was also featured on the September 2005 cover of Excellence magazine back when it had a 3.6L Carbureted engine:



Now watch as we give it a new life.



The first thing we decided to indulge into was what engine we had that we are going to put into the RSR Tribute. We actually didn't know too much about it, but from what we could find the engine is a Nitsche. However, we aren't 100% sure. We first took it apart to replace the v/c gaskets and other items.





We then discovered the wiring harness was destroyed so we are making a custom replacement as the old current one is unlike many of the other wiring harnesses out there. The wiring harness that was originally in there was a bit unusual so this new one we are making will match the 14 pin connector of the vehicle.
