x-faktory: 964 Project, 3.6 with PMO ITBs, Rasant/AEM Infinity

Next in the x-faktory queue is Rick Nelson's beautiful 964.
This 964 is Rick's 1st 911 and was previously owned by Chris Nielsen and it is a very nice example. I have to admire Rick's focus on making this 964 meet his own vision. It is getting some special attention. Chris is working on the interior details (stunning), while I am working on the engine/EFI system. This will be an excellent, tastefully done, understated, 964 hotrod. can't wait to dig in...but Holy crap!.....there is a lot of stuff that has to come out of there, prior to installing the new EFI system...stay tuned!

Al, very cool seeing a 964 getting The Treatment. Will it retain it's A/C? Of the available ITB's on the market, are there certain solutions that enable A/C being retained and some that don't? My question pertains specifically to a 3.0 SC. Thank you. John.

less is more!

Stock intake and DME removal underway. AC will stay and I'll keep you posted on how that goes. I'm going to need more storage bins........

So I owned this between Chris and Rick, lovely car can't wait to see how it works out. I was considering a classic retrofit AC in it... (Oh and I should remove it from my signature now )

Al, am looking forward to seeing this. This post might even convince me to do the same to my 964.

It'll be awesome, I'm sure.

I am looking for good examples if methods of adapting the stock 964 throttle cable to the PMO mechanical linkage.
(Note: this is not a 3.6 engine being transplanted into an earlier 911, of which there are many examples, Patrick Motorsports and others, of converting the early mechanical to cable linkage...it is a stock 964 w/PMOs........need to convert the 964 cable linkage to work with PMO bellcrank etc.)

I can design something to work, but I know this has been done before....anybody?

Al,
I bet the 964 Forum over at Rennlist would love to discuss this thread and see what you're up to.

Similar thread going on over there right now:

cleans up nice

I am making progress on the 964 EFI project. All of the stock intake and DME wiring is out of there and I've installed the coils/igniters (custom mounting bracket)and have the ITBs in place to check clearances etc. I've figured out a slick way to use the stock throttle cable to actuate the PMO x-bar/linkage (he said confidently) and by end of tomorrow I expect to have the ITBs installed and have the Rasant kit installed and this mutha will be wired up....and then on Friday have the fuel plumbing and throttle linkage sorted.............stay tuned.

I like it a lot. Would really love to see what the impact is in objective terms. It's clear that it is a very aesthetic difference. Keep us posted on what you find.

I'm very interested in this kit, Al. Please keep us updated.
Also, is your shop in Mt. Vernon? I'd love to come up there for a visit.

964 project......

It has been a while since I last posted, but after debugging, including a new configuration of the ignition and new ECU....it is alive. Here is a link to a video showing it running pretty nicely with the 1st cut at tuning.......idling too high...but it really is running well & sounds great....on to the serious tuning!!!

stay tuned,
