THis is Pathetic, just buy a turbo. Or rice out some foreign P.O.S. and sell your N/A to someone who will appreciate it for what it is.

I'm on the side of just buying a 951 unless you're going to open the engine and rebuild the lower side before you add the turbo. You're going to blow up a piston and end up another "turbo build horror story". There are forged pistons with an 8:1 compression ratio in the factory turbo. The regular cast 944 piston isn't good enough, even if you can find a way to deal with the "on the high side for a turbo" 9.5:1 compression ratio.... just check the past posts. Other differences in the engine are sodium filled exhaust valves and ceramic lined exhaust ports.

Hopefully you'll handle brake and suspension short-comings before you add the power too. Better springs, sway bars, torsion bars, maybe shocks .... better front calipers. (insert 2 cash register sound effects)

If you're going to do it, do it right... or don't do it at all.

Porsche gave it the designation 951 when they were happy with it.

Frank B

Would you suggest buying something as great as your KIA?? Better yet a Honda Accord?!! Why is the fact that I am interested in adding a low amount of boost make me not appreciate my car???

Judging by the amount of ***** you are sooooo proud of breaking....seems like you don't appreciate your things very much. Maybe you should sell your porsche and buy a new accord before you break a beautiful car. Just my advice.....

Excuse me Mr. will944,... **** breaks. Maybe FrankB broke his cars driving them to the fullest? Having fun with what he's got? The harder you drive these cars the more you appreciate them. What the hell is the point of owning a PORSCHE if you dont drive!?!?!? Do you pansy your car? Sounds like you do if your busting on FrankB's broken cars. This question has been asked GOD only knows how many times. To be honest,... IT'S ANNOYING. If you want to turbo charge a car get a friggin turbo. If you want to do work on your car get a broken turbo and fix it. Don't chop up a perfectly good NA because you want a little boost. We all know whats going to happen,... "Well, I installed the turbo and now the car won't start. What's wrong? I'm not getting ANY boost. Why? Ok, I got boost but my car is SLOW as hell! Why?". DUDE, your trying to turbo charge a car for $1,500. It's not gonna happen. Even if you did you would be using the cheapest **** and we all know the cheapest **** BREAKS and thats not from driving hard. Leave the car along and buy a turbo. These guyz know their **** and have been driving these cars alot longer then you have. Why would they bull**** you. Also, you leave frank alone,... I might have to get up out of my chair,......... well I'm not even going there.

Easy overkill!!! If I didn't know you and told you that you don't appreciate your Porsche....would you be offended??? I think so. And I never asked to Turbo my car for $1500....that was somebody's input.

Frank B...your comment just really pissed me off! I don't think you are in any place to tell anybody in this forum that they don't appreciate their car!!

Will

I understand the question is redundent about adding a turbo. Mine was more towards wondering if parts would have to be fabricated or not.

To be honest, I bought my car 6 years ago from a guy who had no idea what he owned. I got a great deal, but the car was shot. I've done tons and tons of work to it on my own including rebuilding the head. Unfortunately my rings are shot so I am considering a buying a used motor and having it dropped in.

Basically I was just trying to think of something to do to the "new" motor while it was out and easily accessible. I probably won't end up trying to turbo it, but was just curious if it would be a "plug and play" kind of install.

I want to keep it as a daily driver and eventually buy a 944T as a weekend car. Maybe I'll just leave it mostly stock to keep it reliable.

PS...I do drive my car hard...but I break transmissions doing it. Speaking of which....are there any companies out there that strengthen these transaxles???

I'm wondering how long the converted to Turbo or Supercharger
944NA run for?
As for breaking late 944 trans by driving hard..no, you are being abusive in your driving which is something completely different.
Anyway, you just do it.....

They run for about 6 months providing your not doing a lot of track events. I did it I know, and I did with a ton of money, and it still was like owning an underpowered 951. My 10K dollar supercharged NA netted 189 HP at 5 PSI on the dyno.

Ditch the thought, don't do it, I am living proof. If you want more power get some cash and drive down to Denver and buy my 951, it's listed in the "Denver Post" in the Porsche section. You can have 15psi and drive it every day if you want.

How much are you looking to get for the 951 Scott R??

Yeah...the charger kits I have seen for the NA are fairly weak! 951 is definitely the way to go....they can be unreal!!!

As far as being abusive.....yes....I definitely was. I was 16 and thought spinning the tires was cool. At that point I should have owned a mustang or something...hahaha

9,800 OBO. It's in show condition, in fact it won first in class at the PCA/United Cerebal Paulsy concurs event last June. It may win again if I don't get it sold.
