I filled in the vents cause its easier. Plus I don't need them. I post more pics as move along. Cheers
Forgot to mention,you can paint the dash any color. Bright color wont get hot & give off heat under glass. It's an aluminum plate in center with gauges.
by plenty you mean about the power of a stock turbo motor.

very cool project, but after spending that kind of money, the only choice IMO is v8 ...

I'm building a naturally aspirated motor. I don't like the idea of a small block Chevy in a Porsche. To each their own. If people say don't waste your time with a na motor,that's what I'll do cause I'm an idiot.

I love the idea of a killer, high revving NA motor. I didn't have the money to build one so I supercharged mine, which is the next best thing IMO.

I also love the idea of an LS powered 944, but it's not for me.

I understand you. If you were to upgrade 911 NA engine most of the people if not all would fully support you but with 944 because of its lower value the picture is different. If you are building the 944 for yourself and are planning to use it for many years, then it does not matter whether this is the most efficient way to get more power. You just do what make you happy.

I don't think there are haters on this board For many it's rather uncommon that someone spends lot of cash on 944 compared to its current market value.

I took this approach on my first modified car. I thought for sure that I could get where I wanted to be without an engine swap... It's a fun challenge to take the stock engine as far as you can go. It's true you will surprise a few people when you get to the top. It's much longer of a climb than swap or turbo.

Everyone has their own opinions and ideas. If you give ten people ten identical cars to build,you'll get ten totally different cars. I have ideas in my head how I want to build my car whatever the cost. If I put $15-$20k into it,I'd say I got off easy considering the 944 is an awesome little car to work with. It's a shame they don't have much value because they were very well built cars. That's why we love them.

Might be worth checking this thread for reference. How to get more power out of NA, looking for 400hp ++ - Rennlist Discussion Forums

Thanks for the link Patrick. That's unbelievable. If I can get 250hp out of mine I'd be happy. Wanna finish up with the lexan and some other things and get started on the motor.

3/16 clear windshield,1/8 tinted windows and hatch. New rubbers,you should always use new rubbers when you change your windshield. I'm not using any sealer on my windshield. A little pressure on a new rubber is enough to keep it water tight. After I paint the car next spring-summer,I'll use a little adhesive on the outer rubber.

Thanks,gonna start on rear hatch soon. Then I can finish the wiring. I removed all the wires that I don't need from the harnesses. Just picked up a set of Wossner pistons,10:6:1 compression. Only 94 octane gas is available at the pumps up here. Gonna take an 87 block to machine shop soon. Have it cleaned,checked,bored,resurfaced,I'm not sure if I should go with steel sleeves. I have an old nitrous kit sitting in my shop that I want to put to good use. What do you think about nos,bad idea or give'er.

My advice is to find a good dampener to run on the crank. Especially with it being knifed. I learned the hard way and am going away from my knife crank. Massive forces go through the cranks and these partially create bad harmonics which can lead to important metal parts breaking off a motor.
Look up RS Barn and talk to them about their dampeners.

Thanks Patrick,appreciate it. It's a 2.5 crank and I'm using a stock flywheel(3-4 pnds lighter)., If I use my balance shafts should I still use a dampner. I also have my stock 2.5 crank untouched. Stock crank with aluminum flywheel and lightened balance shafts would also work well(maybe better). I also like to learn things the hard way. Maybe I'll try different set ups and see how they work. All part of the fun

I'd contact Pete at RS Barn and discuss it with him as far as running the dampener and b/shafts. When I bought my knifed crank back in 2007 I just thought lighter was better but it would have disrupted the balance. Note, I didn't run with that crank for any length of time until late last year so it's not like it's been fine all these years!
