Porsche Crest

So for anyone interested Here is my build im starting.

I will be needing a lot of help from the members here as a lot of things on this car will probably have only been done one or twice from info I can find,

Now before I Start let me start off by saying the car was purchased with no interior, motor or box. The plan was to be a budget build and building what I wanted not what you think it should be. My previous car was a Mercedes E55 the last of the Supercharged V8s. I have always loved the sound and feel of a V8 and on the same note I have always loved the timeless look of the 911 so I shopped around looking for a project as I never had plans of a doing a resto.

Behold my 76 911 that came with a 993 widebody. So I jumped in the car and drove to sydney and pick up my ride.

So the plan is to give it a GT2/RSR look but run a turbo LS1. The transaxle is a custom built one for me from a company in Sydney.

This will be purely home built and on a budget. You are all welcome to offer ideas and help on anything you think me assist. I'm open to keeping this group build I'm just not interested in any of your purist opinions. I was thinking of making Youtube vlogs nothing high quality but more of update evey few days rather than one a week or month. Whats everyones thoughts.

So lets get started.

So I have started on fitting my GT2 flares and working on making my roll cage. I picked up a cage from an alfa 105 which is almost the same size. with a few easy mods it should fit quite easily as the main hoop is the same size.

So first job is to remove the remaining interior and clear away some of the dynamat for the mounting plates for the roll cage. I tell ya this **** was a pain to remove Super sticky and sharp like a torn coke can. But im glad the car had it as the LS1 will be loud!!

This was the cage I picked up

Next I spent a few hours playing with my flares i was keen to see how the fit was with my wheels as I was worried about the offset. So it was time to get cutting.

I know what it feels like to be Nakai now and cut up a 911 lol

So I drilled some holes and added bolts and done

Now the fan part. I was not going to waste money with a ****ty 915 so instead went with a custom box for a lot les money and the internals are all brand new. The box is a STI 5 speed with the rear drive unit removed and shortened I went with a the oversize ring and pinion and and double syncros on 1,2,3. Single syncros for the rest. it comes in shorter than a 901 box and will allow my to have the engine a little higher and forward more.

this is compared to a 901

now the output for porsche is bottom the ooutput for subaru is top so im goung to run an exposed shifter link sorta like a spyker

Now the above pics show the fin in a 912 the 911 has a slighty bigger tunnel so the fit should be very easy. Ill mount my shifter higher and and cut down the throw.

I just picked up my gated shifter for that chink sound lol

Today ill be making me seat adaptor plaes and finishing off my cage and starting on my strut brace

More goodies arrived today. My subaru to LS adaptor plate. Custom fly wheel and i finished welding up my cage.
