Excellent build 911JeffS! It looks like it's going to be one nice Porsche; and the fact that you saved it from 'dying' makes the project that much better. In case you're considering adding a few final touches to it, check out our newly revamped Accessories section. We're now caring spray gun kits too to make the DIY projects more fun / less expensive. Best and luck and keep those pictures coming. We want to see the final product!

Racer- The fuel tank is modified and battery relocated to smugglers box to make room for radiator and because the tank has been cut it allows for air escape though the bottom of the car. RJ, I wont debate how the air reacts under the car or vise versa. Its been beaten to death already. Hope this helps Thanks.

Ez Breezy battery cable actually reaches you have to cut crappy terminal off then you can feed it through an existing hole replace with new terminal. Then you have to extend the 3 small red wires with matching wire. I added the required fuses for the wire being used at the battery. Then any battery tray & hold downs that works for you. Post pix soon of whole job. Car in my buddy's shop now getting fitted with SS exhaust this week or so, hope to have a first fire up next week or sooner

The exhaust is going slower than I had hoped with the freakin blizzard, then I have my hell 2 weeks at work so slow going. Then my friend needs to make money ? Imagine the nerve of him sheesh "

"Its a freakin 911 with a freakin LS1 in it Cheesus" Lets Go!!!

We're using all SS components basicaly one pipe builders kit, two muffs, one x-pipe plus maybe at least 2 clamps 2 hangars. clamps mostly used for ease of disassembly. I will tell you that its coming out really nice. Mine, based on other great examples, might be the standard for this application with exhaust manifolds no doubt, and maybe over all. we shall see

The black carpet and handles looks fantastic with the tan leather—way better than tan all around. It will also weather better. When there is tan leather, plastic, and carpet, they all fade at different rates and it can look terrible in short order.

Sounds like the end is in sight! Don't rush the finish!

Just installed adjustable rear sway bar very cool. Fire up is coming soon.

Plan to test fire sometime Monday afternoon. Not "drivable" maybe move it around parking lot at friends shop. Probably a good thing at this point. Chow

Primed engine with oil, spun starter without plugs installed. No start failed fuel pump (tip dont try ro reuse old one) To busy working can't get back to it until next week. Good news is that was only fuel leak so far.

Hey we're running but not perfect yet. Had lean running condition, not ideling. Have to check out the evap hose not hooked up. Gonna reseat connectors eng management stuff, haven't hooked up a VSS device not sure if that's contributing to not running right ? VSS is it just for Speedo & Tach? Check for Ground wire off or broken we will get it. Fire up on YouTube "First Fire up 911LS1" any helpful thought appreciated. Thanks

MrRPJ, yes still running the Maf sensor, It's an after market one. Car is at my buddy shop 40 minutes away so I get there once a week at the moment. I'm gonna try to disconnect maf and fire it, along with disconnect/reconnect the rest of sensors etc. I don't think it's mechanical issue, definitely seems computer related. I welcome any other thoughts Thanks

I would pull the ecu take it to a shop and make sure all the vats are removed and while your there have it maffless tuned. that way you dont need to worry about mounting the maf or any issues it causes,
Ps are you running the renegade cradle?
could you measure from very bottom of the bottom bar to very top where it meets the mounts i need to know how high it is im making one but cant use the renegade one as im running a subaru box and i hoping to get the motor a little more forward
