Porsche 944 ls swap
« on: January 02, 2017, 10:39:15 PM »


Stanced out to make all the pussies wet


seat in for a test fit and to sit in it and make racecar noises. I gutted the car awhile ago. The stock interior was fucked from the battery tray being rusted and water leaking into the passenger side. All the carpet was rotted, seated rotted, seat brackets rusted etc.


mostly stripped down original motor.  Previous owner didnt do the 30k timing belt, smashed all the valves.


Stinky ass LM4 aluminum 5.3 in the back of my xterra.




Figuring out this pos mig fixing the battery tray rust. Seam sealed the entire thing then rhino-lined it. Hopefully it never rusts again.


Using the corvette c5 slave with remote bleeder and lines that cost too fucking much.


Corvette c5 bellhousing, torque tube to bellhousing adapter, misc bullshit.


Spec clutch, JD said it was shit and I should get a mcleod twin disc.


so I did.


purp fuel rails so i can blaze it.



Fuel pump installed so I can wheelie.


using the wix filter/regulator combo from a c5 vette and running -6 from the tank to the rail


old motor out with no lift pure brute strength lol.




bay cleaned up further once i could get in there to do work.


using cave man tactics to put the engine on the stand. Still no lift at this time.

All observers thought i was going to die.


Put the pan on the engine so I could find where the pan needed to be cut to clear the cross member.


cut pan finished.




cleaned the valve covers to paint them black so that they may never go back.



#blacked. Didn't come out that well.


ls1 intake, chinese fuel rails, custom accessory bracket that im not sure if I like or not. I should have just bought the fbody shit for the lower mounting points.


the harness. I had to convert from DBW to DBC and remove a bunch of shit.



harness finished and labeled.


stock brake booster does not fit with the swap.

The options are manual brakes, electronic booster or hydro boost.

This is a hydroboost unit from a mustang cobra.  hissssssssssssssss




Hydroboost bracket finished and hydroboost mounted.


Car back on the ground for the first time in years.


Initial test fit of the engine.


Motor sitting in the car for the first time bolted down.



Coil packs hit the hydroboost so the last pack needed to be moved up an inch.


that ebay throttle body hit the hood so I had to go with an ls1 unit.
Harness looks great in this picture I'm sure everything will go fine.


lalalalalalala installing injector clips


relooming.


Shiny fucking headers because mine were an inch too wide on the passenger side.


car almost ready to be started. Still need to do something about the filter and the maf. There's not a lot of room up front and my power steering mount fucks me. Would have been fine with the fbody shit but I dont want to spend that much on brackets and an fbody pully.

I skipped building the power steering lines I guess.



remote mount oil filter bracket made and buggered on.

Caught the horns on a little bit of fire during this.



Y pipe built that I still need to unfuck. I angled it down a little too much and one of the 02 sensors is at a poor angle because of it.


https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t50.2886-16/15675327_1760086374310191_2376729528878759936_n.mp4

The second start of the car.

All the smoke is the oil burning off from fogging the cylinders down.

That's about where I'm at. Next steps are brakes, get the clutch working (bad master), and get it to a cage shop.

There's a lot of pictures and shit I'm leaving out because I'm too lazy to connect to my phone so this is all instagram shit.

Let the shit talk commence.

Where's the turbo go?

Maybe in the next iteration. I can hit the max power a turbo trans can take N/A (~500hp) with a medium build and I want to drive it for awhile before I go full assed and drop a c5 transaxle in it.  If I do any go fast parts im doing heads and cam next.

The parts are sitting at my house I just haven't had time or the weather has been shit.

I'm trying to find someone to cage it. I got quoted 3500 for a fucking 6 point or 1500 for a roll bar.

It was nice out today so I got some work done. Finished the brake lines and installed a prop valve. My lines look like shit but hopefully nothing leaks. Replaced the clutch master and bled the clutch lines so now that works finally.  Getting closer to burnouts and rippers.

Started rebuilding the calipers. The hardware is fucked up on the driver side caliper so I'm going to need to order some.  Probably wont have anymore progress for a little while since I'm back on the road working.

Hopefully we will have another WNC meet so I can see this thing.

I'm probably going to take a trip down there regardless so if we don't have a meet you can still stop by and spew some ribs lol

I bought some new hoses and I'm changing this up tomorrow. I'll probably still have to use some metal, though.



Seats mounted, need to buy another one. I wasn't going to go with this seat but after having it in the car, I like it a lot.



I was going to pay someone to cage it. The roommate has a pipe bender but the radius is huge. Made a test bend and for the main hoop, that radius is going to work extremely well so tomorrow if I can hit up airgas and alro, I should be able to get the rollbar done. I'm using a schroth DOT approved 3 point harness that hopefully isnt too annoying in a street car.

Still no ETA on burnouts

Main hoop took two tries because I used the wrong reference on the bender and added an inch on each side to the first try

Main hoop in tac'd up to get the rear bars in.

Looks like the seat is mounted really high up. How much head room do you have?

I've got plenty of head room but the seat is tall as fuck I might try to drop it some more but that's going to involve cutting the floor pan out. The front has about 1.5 inches it can drop on the brackets but the rear is at the bottom.

Still no where near it being driveable. Brakes need done, exhaust,  power steering return, fixing some wiring that I angle grinded, hood pins installed, tires, maybe wheel bearings, dash and door cards refinished. Feels like a ton of shit to do.
