Careful Souk. I rode in Kevins car and now spend hours pecking on a calculator trying to work a 3.6 into the budget...

Talking new pelican-er

wow, thanks for all the input! I'm not really thinking about a track car at this point. I just really like the earlier 911's and I have heard there can be problems with studs, valve guides, chain guides, etc. so I thought a good solution would be to just drop a new motor in. I see there is a lot to think about. I have always wanted to do an early RS type car (original thought I know). I think it's because that was what I wanted when I was in high school (do more with '74!) and early college days. I have never driven a turbo so I don't know if I could live with the lag. Thanks again. PS I hope I am replying the right way as I am new to this format also

It's all a matter of taste when it comes to hot rodding the 911....and "how cool do you want to spend?" Here's a pic of a car I consider to be a "way cool" early 911 hot rod...dunno how to post 2 pics in a post, so I'll post again with a pic of it's engine...

And the engine..."only" a 2.7, essentially an RS powerplant with a few "improvements"...this '73 is sort-of an RS clone...without the flares and the spoilers, but still a visual treat "par excellance"...
I'd let it share my garage with my '72 911S any day of the week...

Cool

The porsche 911 is one of the world's greatest "kit" cars.

Just remember go "ole Stroker McGurk" famous quote:

"Speed costs, how fast do you want to go?"

He is also quoted as saying, "If it don't go, Chrome it!"

This crowd has modified that last saying somewhat.

"If it don't go, copy it in carbon fiber."

That's pretty cool...but I don't think that car has AC or power steering. How uncivilized!

I'd rather you attributed that to some Honda drivers. I don't see a line out the door to get CF around here. But, what do I know?

The hot rod thing should maybe be approached with restraint at first. It takes a while to assimilate all the posibilities. Nothing like buying something and then finding out that there was a better choice. I would seek out some Pcar owners at any gathering and talk to them as much as you can.

If you find a car that feels right and end up buying it, drive it for awhile to appreciate it's assets and shortcomings (if any). My advice beyond that is to try to buy a whole car that runs. You can sell off almost anything you replace or upgrade to offset the cost. It's a kind of 'trickle down' economics; as you move up, someone else moves up to your old stuff. In the last year, I've seen several that more than likely recouped half of their outlay doing this. With a roller, you don't get that advantage and you have a longer way to go from the beginning.

I've bought a roller and a whole car and I can tell you this from some real experience.

Simple solution: Do what I did.........
Turbocharge a 3.2 Motronic motor from a '84-'89 Carrera......(and then do something which I WILL DO SOON)........... put it in a '70-'73 911.
Or leave it in the car it came from. With 350+ hp, (depending on mods, all bolt ons) it kicks some serious ass.
No need to waste time with a more expensive 930 motor with a crappy 70's style 7.0:1 compression ratio, and that dreaded HP limiting CIS injection!

That 7:1 compression ratio allows you to run high boost on average gas and that CIS can always be modified or replaced to get more power than that high compression 3.2 motor ever will.

Your first post combined w/ your second confirmed for me that you are not a troll.

Troll= someone who pops in to start trouble, lots of guys confuse novice sounding questions w/ trolls.

I try to be more understanding; I'm just starting to feel I've moved up from novice but that's about when these guys remind me of how little I really know.

Welcome to the board, great bunch of guys and info, but none of us are without faults.

thanks for the explanation. I had it all wrong, I was guessing it had something to do with 914's
