We’ve seen this car in here before, now it is time for some big modifications 🙂 The 1994 3.6L 911 Turbo. In my opinion, the 94 3.6 turbo is the the iconic 911 turbo. Name the movie: –“What the f- w’you mean you don’t have one? Eighty thousand dollars for this car and you ain’t got no damn cup holder?” –“It’s $105,000 and this happens to be one of the fastest production cars on the planet. Zero to sixty in …

Been waiting on a turbo core to be rebuilt for awhile, and it finally showed up today, so I set about replacing the turbo on this 944. The compressor nut had come off and the turbo essentially ate itself due to the loose tolerances. Not a good situation, but I think we have it under control.

I got the 951 up in the air today and started poking around a little more. Always exciting to see what you will run into next.

We all have our moments, but this is AWESOME! Some things put a big smile on my face. Needless to say, this …

Finished up the turbo swap in the 951 the other day. Downpipe swapped on to the new turbo. Turbo installed. Then on went the piping and intake. Once that was done, I needed to pull the intercooler to clean any foreign debris out of that. Header panel removed to expose the intercooler. Peering in the one end, you can see some old crusty particles caked onto the surface. A trip to the power washer cleaned it right up. Intecooler out …

Time for another summary post! I have been tied up with projects and haven’t had time to get the blog updated. Last week a freind brought over his track prepped S2. Extremely well set up car, but it was ready for a belt job and a few other misc. items to get it back up to par. The patient on the operating table. Even though the belts only had about 9k miles on them, it had also been about 8 …
