If you want a V-8 get a small block Chevy.

Watch out! Here comes the bricks!!!

no no no!!!....keep it GERMAN! ahhH! (response to american 944's) Now what would be intresting is take all the parts out of 2 951's and build a 928tt. Space is the biggest issue...but EASY!!!!! or not....probably not.

There's a lot of room under the hood of a 944 though. . .

I wonder if you could get a v-12 in there

probably not, just a thought.

this begs the question; what's the smallest production v12 available these days?

I'm pretty sure I've seen pictures of a 928 engine in a '44...but I think it needed alot more work than fitting in a chevy engine.

Do something different. Put a Nissan SR20DET in it. I would have after I popped my engine, but I didn't have the funds.

Asking if you should replace that timing belt is like asking if you should re-use a condom that may have in hole in it with a hooker.

an RB20DET (which is a single turbo) is such a stupid engine IMO, at least I think it's stupid to swap into a car. If you wanna go w/ an RB series engine try a RB25DET or a RB26DETT. I would still rather see an SR though (I guess you can say I'm partial). I have yet to see it done into a 944 though, I've seen it in Corolla AE86s, RX7s, 300ZXs (Z31, and Z32), old Datsun 510s, Laurells, cefiros, Cresidas, I've even seen one in an older 911, and I know I'm missing a ton. But I think a 944 converted to the S chassis engine and drivetrain would be pretty pimp. Wow, too bad you would have a hell of a time trying to get a transmission and diff to fint right. That would be nice though, being able to run a good diff, I wonder how much nicer it would be to drift... Anybody know of someplace this has been done?

SOMEBODY PUT AN SR INTO YOUR CAR AND LET ME GO PLAY IN IT
