FS 944 Tubo S Crankshaft and Connecting Rods

I've got a perfect set of 944T S connecting rods and a S crankshaft available for sale. I upgraded to a 3.0L crank and Pauter rods and need to get rid of these. The crank has been cross-drilled and is in perfect condition. The rods are in perfect condition as well. Great upgrades for somebody. E-mail with questions and offers.

If you add a turbo otherwise your car will get slower. These have a lower compression ration than your NA.

Yeah, the compression ratio would end up being slower. They are much stronger than what you have in there, but it still may not be worth it without a turbo.

What am I missing here?

Tcmtrsports you are selling rods and a crank right? The NA and turbo rods and cranks have the same dimensions. The CR difference comes from the piston itself. If you just swap in crank and rods and use the existing NA pistons it will all work out fine.

None, the rods and crank are just stronger so that you can make more power without worrying about breaking them.

The main difference is the strength. The rods and crank in the S version are forged=stronger.

Yeah, we had a 86 944 in here a couple of weeks ago that had a tired lower end. When I pulled the crank out, there was minimal thrust left in it (the bearing had grond away on the crankshaft). If you are pulling your motor apart, it would be a good upgrade for overall strength. Also it is already crossdrilled for oiling too.

The crank is the same as a regular n/a '87 up except it is cross drilled. The rods appear beamed and shot peened.

Yes I know, all 944 cranks are forged. Just most rods are cast and the ones you have there are forged and are probably the best stock rods available.
