I am assuming this is the max displacement /6 one


There are 4-liter versions of this motor out there...

That is what I am going to do with the one I buy... 4.0L. Got the pistons, cylinders and rods for it already.

Welcome to the madness!! I believe the 3.0 with the original 901 is actually the best combination (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

Here's a nice reference guide for the conversion, if you're interested. Cheers.

As far as /6 engines go, i'm partial to the 3.6L ...
(IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)



Problem is, they are becoming unobtanium. I am currently looking for a 3.6 964 motor for my car. When they show up, they are going for over 10K in running condition. Long blocks are going for 7 to 8K.

If anyone knows where I can find a 964 engine, let me know. I have the cash on hand, but I can't find one.



Funny thing is I sold a 964 3 years ago had a lsd g50 and got 19 for the whole car and that was a hard sale.. It was a really nice Car.. Prices are crazy right now..


When my 964 got totaled about 4 years ago I go $18K from insurance and could have bought the car back for $5K, I'm sure I could have sold the Fikse wheels and perfect black interior for that amount (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

Driver side rocker is in.. The floor pan short section is removed.. The chassis stiffener is screwed in place.. Front trunk floor has been cut out and the replacement louvered floor pan has been fabricated.. I have sandblasted the engine lid, shift linkage, heater flappers, brake dust shields, all primed is aviation epoxy primer.. Was able to locate some steel flares, and a 2.4 engine that's will be picking up shortly thanks John and Rusty.. Making progress.. I will post pictures shortly.

Awesome (IMG:style_emoticons/default/first.gif)

I have parts for at least 2 cars boxed up on the shelves. If you looking for minor parts let me know. Chances are I have doubles and one is yours for the taking. The 6 conversion bits are about all I'm missing.

Took the driver side door off today and sandblasted it. Omg why people Bondo over stuff like that is beyond me. Looks like a bit more welding to do.. Had to return my short floor pan for the whole half.. It will be nice when it's done but wow.. It's amazing how much these cars hide.. Good thing welding is my thing.

In the midst of doing one (-6 conversion) on my 1971. I'll be doing it half factory/half aftermarket. Factory oil tank/filler neck/lines. Aftermarket engine mount and sheet metal. Will have a 2.4 E/S MFI engine installed along with upgraded 901 tranny complete with 904 mainshaft and all the Guard tranny upgrades possible.


If I were doing another 6 conversion I would opt for the aluminium oil tank that Patrick Motorsports makes vs. trying to find a Porsche tank. I put a NOS Porsche tank in my car because I picked it up very cheap with many other parts from a guy who was liquidating and needed cash. I believe you will pay less and be happier with aluminum in the long run...

Well made some progress.. I have welded in some of the Gt chassis stifeners and cleaned some rust and painted with rust shield.. Its pretty waterey like por15 so got a run but that's fine I will have to sand before it gets color anyway.. I also built a stock looking six mount and a firewall reinforcement plate.. Will get some more work done on it shortly going to be off work for about a month coming upAttached Image Attached Image Attached Image

We were installing my oil tank and lines last night. Bob Russo took a break from working on the 962 to help us run the oil lines. He said your tank was impressive. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif)
