Hey -the car is up running driving under its own power. We're still tweaking but all seems well. The computer that came with engine was "flashed" not tuned or programmed. So it was rough running a rich condition or for wide open throttle. Now I have a tuned ecu, so far so good, actually running excellent, but some dash and gauges stuff need help, need 4 wheel alignment corner balance. running euromiester wheels fronts 17x8 w/225 the rears 17x9 w/255 fat and happy little car.
We are very Happy.

After a bunch of tweeking and solving various small issues. Got the car into alignment shop (Porsche specialists) happy to report all is very well. The car is just nasty. Its happy cruising but does love to get up and go. Patience and persistence got me here. I intend to keep improving the car as I drive it.
Vette HP 2600# Porsche handling, priceless!

I finally got my 71 911 back on the street after a few years of sitting in the garage...other projects just kept me busy. got my 930 gearbox rebuilt and installed new fuel lines and a couple of other items to update. I have a couple of other hotrods but the 911 is an excellent platform to build that allows one year round drivability. and with suspension and brake modifications excellent handling. with the Dart all aluminum solid roller 434 cubic inch sbc engine making a bit over 550 chp and only weighing 2200 pounds it goes plenty fast. I enjoy driving it almost every day!

for some reason or other I believe that I would rather drive the 71. it has plenty of power and I like the long hoods better...maybe because my first Porsche was a 72 911 E with the smaller rsr flares with 9 inch fuchs and a true gulf blue paint from the factory and sport seats...wish I had kept that one for sure. I had updated to a carbureted 3.2 with lots of brake and suspension mods. sold it years ago to a young man from Denver Colorado who made it into a race car! the 930 is in Oklahoma I believe. received a short video of it at the drag strip...130 mph and not a very good start!

Yeah always seems to be an attachment to these cars of some sort. I'm loving mine cause I built it, and the reliability of the car is a big part of it for me. It's on going tweaking and improving an already reliable platform.

MrRPJ
Post 103 says 2600lbs I don't do killies.
This # use to be a a pound sign, this - is hash tag like on an American football field. Not sure if that was the confusion but annoying all the same.Thanks.

Any more pics? Or video clips?

Picking up a 77 shell soon with a SBC rebuilt motor and renegade kit.

The quarter panels are completely chopped but will be a fun project!!

MrRPJ did not see it get weighed so maybe I will double check at weigh station. Car is a Targa has 6 speakers an amp, and a big fiberglass speaker enclosure behind rear seats, pretty big euromeister 17" rims and tires. Reread post for details.

Itza I for one really love the 77 model year, most have the narrow rear fenders. Great that you found it already repurposed like mine so good luck.

Hey all - Car is a blast to cruise or while enjoying some spirited driving. I find that my rebuilt 77 915 tranny is first gear usable, and with the installed taller 4th and 5th gear feels like match made for my setup. Also worth mentioning don't hastily discard the stock Porsche brake system its pretty stout and tested daily. Got my interior targa bar and b pillar sails fixed look factory fresh. As others have discussed on really hot days cab can get a little warm, and the LS can get to 210* ez, and higher. On cooler days its just awesome. I'm looking for some heat displacement and improvement in the engine bay and trunk areas. We have most holes plugged and I just bought the trunk carpet kit to help keep heat out of cab.. thinking about small pusher fans mounted on interior engine hood. More to come with pix need better than phone video, soon.
