    A 911 with a LS engine, I like it. Put a really nasty sounding hydraulic cam in the LS just to piss off the Porsche Snobs even more.

    Is it not possible for the full price of an LS swap to get a good second hand of modded 911 engine or even have the current engine rebuilt? The beauty of these 911's were lightweight and simpleness.

    As for the LS swap, man that is a massive job in itself just ask Hoovies Garage, he did it in a later 911.

    And for parts on any Euro spec car, try FCP Euro, great deals and lifetime replacement.
    It is more satisfying to be a bad player at golf. The worse you play, the better you remember the occasional good shot.

    My brother-in-law is on his 3rd Porsche rebuild. When he started out, he didn't know the differences between wrenches. His philosophy - if you can't do the job yourself, it's not worth doing. So, if you have to have a shop do all the work - sell it. If you will spend the time learning the car from inside out and being your own mechanic, keep it and do the work yourself. It is going to be a lifelong expensive toy if you have someone else do the work.

    He rebuilds the Porsche's to drive them for awhile and then sell them for a profit ?
    If so, that's cool.
