Build complete... with V8 (not for the purists)

Here is the build, a year after the CHP rear ended my car, we ended up putting a V8 in there and doing a lot of custom work to make the car perform at a very high level. 410 HP to the wheels, everything is solid now... enjoy the pics!

Beautiful car, Im in the process of doing the same to my 82SC. I also installed the LS and purchased the kit from Scott at RH. Would you be so kind to share where you purchased that rear bumper. Congratulations, the car it looks amazing. To all the purist, Porsche's are a piece of art and we all interrupt art in all different ways. Embrace the creativity. Enjoy your ride.

Wow. Nicely done (and I'm one of those "purists")!

Who makes those wheels?

Very nice ride without regard to drive train. Though honestly anything short of a modern GT car would have real issues keeping up! Is this a "real" RWB? Is it the only Chevy powered RWB? If this is a tribute RWB, please PM me more details.......love the look of your car.

How did you fit an LS with a factory waterpump without cutting the main chassis
