The struts/shocks inserts are KONI yellow and the housings are made ( home ) to fit the 996 insert and suspension configuration.

I don't have the front flairs made up as yet, but they will be similar.
I sent out all the aluminum 996 suspension to be soda blasted so I can put some clear
paint on them. I like the look of clean aluminum, hope to do the same with the LSX engine
and G-50 transmission. The car will be white inside and out. I like to be able to see
inside the engine bay and white paint is best for that IMO.

Mid Engined 911 Twin Turbo

Just looking around the forum and found this post. here is a 1976 911 mid engine project my father and I are wotking on. It is a 3.2 with 3.3 piston & jugs, twin K16 996 Turbos. The back hatch is set up for the 2 into 1 intercooler. This is a track/ DE/ AUTOX/ Hillclimb car. We are running 914 trailing arms and had to move the fenders back 3.5 inches. All steel except for carbon doors. Full cage and we are hoping for 500- 540 hp out of it.This is the second intresting mid engined creation. We also have a 1965 mini cooper S running all 911 suspension and now wiring up an EJ20T engine for it! Hope you all like it!!

That's a beautiful car, attention to detail and quality is fantastic. Very few can pull off this kind of build.
I don't know about using a Corvette transmission, seems it is just too long but
honestly I don't know the detentions being considered.
Here is a few of my current pictures of my project continuing the mid-engine
theme.

As you can see there's lots of work to do !





I'm using the 996 suspension complete front and rear. The only modification was
rotating the steering rack on top of the front cross brace.
