That is amazing. Unless I go on "fundme" or something like that, I will be sticking to basic project to get my original 2.5 engine put back together and running properly. Even my '87 i hardly ever took it over 100mph.

I read over a few threads on a couple or three forums and owners listed the parts they ordered must be costing them $5 grand. I would like to know, aside from the unexpected, what other basic parts am I going to need in addition to what I know already. The head gasket and bolts w washers; oil coller gasket set; and the 2 lifters.

I agree with getting your engine running. I'm daily driving my '88 924S after two years of daily driving my turbocharged 924S and I'm having just as much fun. As someone mentioned, the '88 engine is a good bit more potent than the ones in the earlier cars. Around town the two feel very similar. I've even let a few 944 owners drive my '88 and they've all said that it's noticeably faster than their cars, and it is bone stock.

I'm working right now to do some improvements to my turbocharged car, that includes air conditioning. Anyway, I recently went through and rebuilt my '88 924S engine and here's the receipt just so you'll have some idea of parts you may want to buy.

I hope that helps!

Thanks!! Austin

There's always the option of adding another cylinder (Audi 5):

Yep, the left page is the Pelican receipt while the right page is the list of parts I installed and their total. I thought the picture was better than making a huge list of parts.

*edit. History on this car are the head gasket blew due to a lower radiator hose being installed backwards by a shop in Orlando, FL in approx January 2015. The oil and radiator were drained after about a month after the gasket blew. This 924S has original 75,458 miles on it now.

Some of the records I have in a folder are major work from Memphis Motor Werks in Cordova TN in the year 2000. It's a long time ago but at the time the mileage was 64,339. This was less than 13,000 miles ago and maybe the last owner who took proper care of the car.

Amount paid: $8576.56
The major work was: a transmission gasket set, then engine long block ( $3,995.) ; Engine mounts; reference sensor; Clutch Kit Spring Pl ($650.) Labor they removed; disassembled; cleaned and inspected transmission components, replaced parts as needed and reinstalled. ($1098.) Resurfaced the flywheel ( $67.) also a used sunroof drive was installed.
New McPherson strut replaced both sides and rear shocks ( Billsteins) ...
In '01 at 69,011 miles we got a new strut tower brace installed for around $700 and a fire extinguisher bracket.
Stainless Steel brake lines w ATE +blue racing fluid 2 months later.
There is also a hand drawn map of a race track Spring Break @ Ducks May 6, 2001. Someone loved this car very much. This owner was a MArk Desser who seemed to have been a PCA member. Eventually he moved down to St. Cloud Fl and that's where it was sold for some reason to a few neighbors and eventually the kid who sold it to me in 2014.

Austin

rebuilding the head and doing a full gasket job, if you can DIY, should come in well under $1000.
all the parts are available here on pelican.

if a machine shop wants more than say $250 to rebuild the head, find another shop.

The head was already rebuilt by the kid I just bought it back from.
I guess the bottom is the longblock so this is a new long block engine with only 11,119 miles on it. Am I correct?

Hi v2, ...what do I have to do to this thing after what happened? Basically this is a new long block with only now 11,000 miles on it. The incident happened in January 2015 and was loose lower radiator hose; car overheated and previous owner drove home.............about 10 mile ride at like 25mph. Engine overheated and head gasket leaked af into the engine.

I got the car in Feb 2015 like a month later and drained the radiator and engine oil as best as I could. Since then the head had been sent out to machine shop & i have it back. The car hasn't run since Jan '15.

I'm a little confused by reading too much about what should be done. Thanks.

I am just up the road from you in Jupiter and we have 2 944s. One is a race car and one of them is a parts car while I plan to dismantle somewhat soon. If you need anything, let me know and I will see if we have it in our list of spares or in the parts that are coming off of the parts car.

We run late offset gear on the race car, so most of the early offset parts aren't particularly useful to us. Our parts car looks like it has new brakes on it so they may be of use to you. I can't recall if the 88 924S used early or late running gear.

Its hard to say what would need to be replaced after overheating. If it were me, I'd put the head on and leave the bottom end alone and hope for the best, but thats just me.

Today I drove my '88 924S home from my mechanics shop. DelRay Beach to West Boca. After New Years I'll get tags.
