Just starting a build thread.


The suspension on the car was SHOT!
Did Weltmeister springs and Sachs struts. Got a great deal on the struts/shocks. Also lowered the rear as much as I could without re-indexing.


Bakes are Zimmerman blanks, stainless lines, semi metallic pads and Ate Super Blue fluid.

Installed Weltmeister Dme and Klr chips.

After.
Waiting for it to warm up before I finish painting the lower panels. Also need a black driver door panel.

Stock airbox was busted. So put a ricer filter on it until I get a MAF conversion kit (Vitesse or Rogue).


Also did a tune up. Plugs, wires, distributor and been replacing vac lines with silicone when I feel like it.

I've always liked those 944 line Porsches, maybe one day I'll get a turbo one. Be sure to get some of the Porsche twist wheels and all will be well :)

Since November. It's been a lot of work. With a good bit more ahead. Motor mounts and need to find a oil leak.

Did the previous owner live in gwinnett? And is the motor built? There used to be a clean one EXACTLY like this that came out to the park n ride/etc back in teh day. It was pretty fast too.

These wheels are amazing IMO, I'd keep them over the turbo twists.

I want to have sex with this car.

The wheels look a bit better in the pics. The finish is starting to peel and a center cap is missing.
edit: And the tires are dry rotted.
