alright, time to start a conversion thread. i picked up the engine a month ago and started with the prepping of the tub today.

didn't get too much stuff done, oh well, babysteps ...

the ToDo-List (striked-out items are done!):
============================================
i'm going to overhaul the suspension, mount a front oil cooler with fan(s), fix a few spots on the tub the PO had hacked together, add racing seats and 5-point harness, install the 944 axles, the 911 eBrake, the new trailing arms, add a rear sway bar, Mueller roller bearings, new 250lbs springs on adjustable perches, fix the front sway bar, install new rear window, fix the gastank (correctly this time), replace the plastic fuel lines, get a trick porsche motorsports setup for my oiltank, add a vent to the front hood, redo the rear spoiler (ducktail), 100mm wheel studs all around, throw in the 3.6L motor and when all that is done, i'm going to give her a one of a kind paintjob!

oh, and i'm still playing with the idea to have her put on a celette bench to make sure she's straight ...
============================================

ETA: soon enough to run a full season for 2006 2007 !!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/screwy.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)

UPDATE: current todo list can be found HERE: todo list as of 04/25/07

now for the prep work, the car has 911 brakes on all 4 corners, out of a '85 carrera.
i did rebuild the calipers about 6 month ago and noticed that the front rotors were pretty chewed up, so i got some new rotors that i put in today.

i also got longer wheel studs so i could run some spacers for my street wheels. i needed an extra 1 1/4" and i *thought* i would be fine with 75mm studs ...
well, turns out, that wasn't enough. (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/sad.gif)
i'll be ordering 100mm studs for the front pretty soon. with the 75mm studs, i could only add about 3/4" of spacer before i ran out of thread, which is 1/2" short of my goal ...

here are the pics (at McMarks shop in napa) ....


old rotors and studs:

still way too much space between the tire and the fender, at least 1/2" ...

btw. this is for the street wheels. the track wheels, 9" GoodYear R250 Schlicks, fit perfectly with just a 1/4" spacer!

Are you talking about a gas tank? Talk to me tomorrow about that.

Oh, and let's paint your wheel wells black. No more orange highlights. (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/wink.gif)

Did the engine come with the dual 6 distributer set up with the vee belt running one of them, or did it come with an actual 12 spark distributer?

Just curious.
