Continue here with some cleaning.

Did I mention that this car was a mess ?



Cleaning time.





Front support cleaned up.





Cleaned and plated some hardware.



So now I got this 944 Turbo transmission at the right. The left one which came out of the 944 has a longer 5th gear. So I will swap them out.



To be continued.

Cheers
Engelbert

Hell, I've got a perfectly good 944 sitting a garage that I can't even find the time to drive around. This thread will probably make we want to keep it.

Did a little work on the brakes.



The calipers looked pretty ugly.



I took them apart and cleaned it all up.



Here are they ready for assembly.



Assembled and ready to go in.



Rear end done.



Front end also in. The sway bar is not yet installed, and I wait with that for better access.



Cheers
Engelbert

I'm going to assume you clocked the pistons in the calipers to the proper 20 degree angle?

Good Point, yes, I did.

Thanks for asking.

I made some progress with my Hybrid project



Got the power plant ready to go in to test fit.



Coming down.



Looks like it's gonna fit.



It looks like it belongs there.



There is more space around than I expected. Wow. A lot more work to do.



Cheers
Engelbert

This all seems very familiar...

What are you going to use for a brake booster? I had an ABS electric brake booster and it was the only thing I didn’t like about the swap. I feel like it was underboosting and the brakes felt wooden with no bite, and the pedal had no modulation.

Nice!
Amazing how relatively small a smallblock OHV engine is.

Would be tempted to make one fit in my S6 if it ever breaks (fingers crossed it doesn't)

I will get a hydroboost kit.
