I used to have one. 37 made for the 944 IIRC, 4 made for the 928. The release of the 951 in '86 made this setup largely obsolete but it is interesting and a bit of a conversation piece. I e-mailed the guy; if he sends me some pictures and more information I may very well pick this up just to tinker with (I've been missing mine, especially seeing as I no longer have a 951...)

I think 285hp is a bit of a reach?

No, the Callaway engines were pretty good - at the time they were produced (early 80s) they were amazing. They make a lot of power - that's Reeves Callaway's legacy (look up some old Road & Track magazines from the 1980s and you'll see his name all over the place for stuff he did with Corvettes and the like - he's known for extracting lots of power out of forced induction setups).

For that matter, a 951 can also with the right tuning and modifications. I've seen 951s well north of 400 RWHP. Heck, my old one was somewhere around 325 and that was only with an updated turbo, chips, exhaust and injectors (about $2k worth of upgrades).

Sold...to me! I feel like I won the Lotto! There was one local guy ahead of me, he looked at it yesterday and passed for some reason. I thought for sure it would be gone. As you can imagine the seller was flooded with emails/calls. He's a real stand-up guy and is even going to crate it up for me. I guess it's time to sell my 931 and start the search for a dead 944. Here are a few pictures.

What happened to the rest of the car? I liked the body on those.

It would not be this car would it? http://www.ehadesign.com/~dsmith/Callaway944.htm

I need to change the title on that page. For some reason I labled it a GTR when in fact it is a Callaway

Or a 944S trans so you still get the shorter r&p ratio.

I have one for sale.

You won't need a turbo trans. Rumors that an n/a transmission will explode with anything more than Honda Civic power put through it are HIGHLY overstated.

If you drive the car properly and don't go doing clutch dumps or slam shifts you'll be fine. Roll the power on gradually and smoothly (you know, like you're supposed to) and the n/a trans will be fine.

I've owned one of these setups in the past - they're interesting. Dated by today's standards, but definitely interesting and fun to play with.

Can I ask how much you got it for? The add has been taken down. Also I am very interested in the design of the exhaust manifold. If / when you take it off can you take a bunch of photos of it. I would also like to see more pix of it on the motor as well (side, back, front, top, and from the bottom if possible. I am in the process of making a manifold for my car and that one id virtually exactly what I was putting together.

You may want to check out my old Callaway page here:

The turbo conversion is an interesting piece of history, but pretty crude by today's standards. Have fun with it.

I'll take more pics of it when I get it. I posted more pictures on my forum here: http://www.hybrid9s.com/album.php?albumid=21

Thanks!!!

tholyoak, I found that last nigh surfing. I am looking at making a low pressure turbo for my car and had considered a log style manifold using weld bend pipe (I have a welder etc) The only difference is that I would be using a Volvo turbo that has the westgate and the surge / bypass valve all integrated in to the turbo. The manifold that Callaway made is sort of a hybrid of a log style and a header as his runner s are all curved in to the main tract versus a log that uses a elbow at cylinder #1 then uses a T at 2 & 3 and another elbow at cyl #4. This design is incredibly easy to make BUT the cylinders are actually fighting each other where as the Callaway design they seem to be working with each other to get to the turbo.

It is a very interesting piece / study of 944 performance design and 944 history.

Anyone know if this is the Callaway exhaust?

Callaway used a Borla stainless muffler. Other than the newer cat welded in, it looks the part.
