924S with a V8 in it

I found a website that would put a V8 in my car.Would anyone recommend this?How fast do you think it would be.I know having a v8 would be less expensive than having the original motor that came with the car.Any thoughts?

I thought the same thing at first when my S2 engine gave out. Until you find out how much the kit actually cost by the time you get everything. Not a cheap "kit" to fit the V-8 into a 924 or 944. But will produce more power and may be cheaper years down the road.

It ended up being like $2500+ for all correct conversion parts from Renegade Hybrids, less motor, ECU, springs, and extra labor, etc. So to get a decent V-8 motor your looking at $1000-1500 which brings the total to over $4000+ less labor costs (another $1000).

I found a rebuilt zero miles 944S2 motor for less than $2500 and cost $750 in labor to have it swapped out.

conversion

skip it
tork to much for the rear
lots of work holding it together
did that with 280z cars 20 years ago
also played that game with my lotus
v8 with 930 trans with the renegade adapter
still way to much tork to the axels
junked it all started from scratch
went all pro race
still was cheaper then the conversion
