I didn't post a thread here about my build Bob... should've...would've...if not for the time and attention that a project of this nature and scope requires.

Nevertheless, I will try to give a description about the sectional work involved in our "tribute S/T" build.

ENGINE: The car came with a stock, CIS'd 3.0... and I wanted a more dedicated, purpose-built engine for vintage-racing.
I was able to get hold of a hi-comp 2.8, with a tuned, tall-stacked MFI already installed.
Just what I was looking for... a more "period-correct"-looking motor than the 3.0 CIS.
It was crank-dyno'd at 272HP...according to the builder.
And on a lightened '72T, that's surely a good thing!


Knowing that I wasn't satisfied, and confident, with the 915 tranny that was mated to the 3.0, I decided to get a newly-rebuilt 915 tranny...and while I was at it, had a new WaveTrac LSD installed.
When the tranny arrived, it was fortuitous that a couple of more "goodies" were already pre-installed by the previous owner!
Wevo internal gateshift...original Porsche tranny oil cooler...turbo synchros...among others... Christmas came early last year!

FRONT-MOUNT OIL COOLER COOLER:

A "MUST", and highly recommended modification, for highly-stressed engines that will see track-duty.
I decided to go Elephant Racing route for this project...and I believe was the most "painless" way to go. Everything that is needed to do this modification is in their kit.
Takes the guesswork away from mixing-and-matching oil coolers to couplings to hoses to brackets...you get the drift...

The bigger challenge was how to fit the big front oil cooler with sufficient posterior relief for proper airflow...



Measure... measure... and measure!!!



Ain't no turning back from here...







All buttoned up...with a li'l custom bracketing for the cooler mount.

In deference to the OP, Olsen911, I'd like to share how we reworked the back end for the "S/T" flares...

We started out with, stock rear quarters, "RS" FRP bumpers and ducktail on our car.
The "S/T" flares were 9" wide, so the impending issue was how to "blend" the existing "RS" bumper with the "S/T" flares.
If you decide to get a wider "S/T" bumper, your problem is solved.
Can you "massage" a narrow "RS" bumper to fit the wider "S/T" flares?... absolutely.










And here's the final assembly...







At this point, it becomes so easy to say, "...this will do..."... RESIST that urge.
A smooth transition can be had... just spend a little more time being fussy about it.

Porsche 911 ST.

It is finally time to paint.







I really need some pictures of the inside interior of a Porsche 911 ST, if there is anyone who have this, so please post.

I am particular interested, in how and where they have mounted the extra buttons, relays etc..?

Thx. Olsen 911

Sorry for the OT, but please tell me about the car lift - how high does it lift the car?
Is it possible to remove the engine with that kind of lift?

Awesome stuff going on. .

I am drooling now - Thanks for sharing Chad.

Any pictures of the inside interior.? - Race dash.?

P-car is on its way to the paint, so it's time to take care of all the other things.


Before:





After:





All undergone cleaning and repair and couldn't resist getting the RPM rebuilt and converted to 10,000 rpm.

I'm out in the garage and just looking at it, wife thinks I'm crazy, but your guys will understand

Thx. Olsen911
