Porsche Crest 86-951 revival

Happy New Year and all the best for 2017.
I am reviving my 86-951. I worked on in a lot 1 year ago, but I has been sitting idle since then.
Over the holidays I gave it a fresh coat of paint and worked on the interior. I noticed it wasnt boosting as it did before.
I tried the wastegate test as set out on Clarkes Garage, but I dont understand something. I start the car, the crossover pipe and turbo pipe warms up but the wastegate stayed cold. I applied the maximum vacuum and it holds pressure but the wastegate remained cold. What am I missing? I thought if the wastgate is closed then it should boost, open and no boost.

Sounds like you and I are in the same boat. My project has been sitting idle for a year. I'm getting ready to start on it again now that all my other projects are dealt with.

I know it rhetorical but, why do we do this to ourselves? It only feels good but there are other ways to loss money and waste time. I had 9 projects last year! This year only 3... for now.

yea but .... casino, bars, drugs, affairs? at least we have something to show for it.

a bit like the Porsche cliche, "Porsche ... there is no substitute". and once addicted there is no cure.

almost done with some work on my '85 911 to revert to stock.

maybe I'll put in some time on the 930 project yet this winter..... think going on 3rd year.

Finally was able to sneak in a few hours between household projects without noticing. Replaced rear overhead upholstery and rear hatch seal, finished suspension with Koni's front and rear.

After long absence I finally got around to the 951. This summer I bought a project 89-928. Basically it is a parts car. Then a resto-Corvette C4 non-runner was dumped on me. Taking a financial break from the 928 and the C4 is done so it time for some love for the 951. The paint developed spiderweb like cracking on the roof, hood and right rear 1/4. So sanding and repairing. I pulled the dash again since I wasnít happy with the look. I took more time this time more carefully cut the dash vent holes, glued and folded them down instead of cutting out holes. The hardest part to form is the left side of the dash between the side vent and the instrument pod. I tried to do it without cutting but alas I couldnít. I managed to get it down to 1. Iíll try to fill it and get rid of those air bubbles later.

I love your enthusiasm but this is the most ghetto restoration thread I've been into in a while.

Car is FINALLY in the body shop for total repaint. Major milestone in the restoration project. Did a road test after all the engine rework (including turbo rebuild) and when the turbo checked in, it ran like a scalded dog. Bad (or good) part was all the black pieces that blew out of the muffler. Perfect excuse to add a Borla race muffler to the list of upgrades.

Niccccce. I really like white or black 944s. I am so tempted to repaint mine black but everyone say donít do it. Iíll get my 930 professionally painted before the 951.
