colin944Hi All. does anyone have a 968 engine for sale. I’m looking for a complete engine to transplant into a 944S2. I would need all ancillaries and the ecu etc. if you should have such a thing please pm me
colin944I have spoken to him. Nice guy but engine is too expensive for me as I would want to rebuild it before I used it . Going to stick with rebuilding my S2 engine .
trefJust to make you feel better... I have fitted my S2 with a 968 engine. Yes the numbers on a stop-watch say it is slightly quicker... It's not so much fun to drive though. Would I do it again? Never. Will I change it back. One day... But it is fun having a 948 at the moment. What I would do us see if I could fit a 968 inlet manifold onto the S2 engine...
trefCustom exhaust system (a quiet understated one - it is a daily driver), and no, not using a six speed box... There is nothing wrong with the 968 engine, and I am pretty convinced it is working well, but, for me, I just don't enjoy it so much. But then I went to an awful lot of trouble fitting power steering to an early car once and wished I hadn't bothered. I still prefer the feel through a non-power steered 944. The inlet manifold thing is just a hunch (and collected thoughts of others along the way)...and I am not for one minute suggesting that 29 bhps and all the torque is in the inlet manifold and everything else maked up the other 1hp, but Porsche obviously went to a lot of trouble, so they thought it was worthwhile, and it is probably available at a reasonable price from an otherwise scrap engine somewhere.
