      You need to look into someone making an adapter that threads externally. In other words the last 1/2" or so of the barrel is cut and an adapter is installed. One side of the adapter threads to...

      These were (and still are) very good and highly skilled men. The PMCs could do a better job than the UN for a fraction of the cost and the results were longer lasting. The UN was scared that private...

      LOL! I actually remember writing that 15 years ago. Not that much has changed to today except there's more machine shops and businesses that can do the engine work today. If I were to rebuild a 944...

      Keep it as is with the original motor. The progress good from what I can tell here. Also rather than a conversion why not go against the grain and build the motor up a bit? 944 motors are plentiful...

      Ditto. What bothers me is the corporate double-speak. Rather than saying "we are only making this car with one transmission so we can maximize profit" they feed us some marketing garbage. In all...

      Go for it. You won't regret it. I've been around race tracks before. I've driven race cars (not full throttle though) before. I've flown in airplanes and rode in helicopters before. I've been in...

      I just came back from a backseat ride in a TP-51C Mustang. Riding in 1200 horsepower WWII fighter airplane doing aerobatics beats the crap out of the driving events. The g forces are...

      LOL! No I think there's lots of other people here who have more fun jobs. I just do what I do because I am a gearhead and I do gearhead things in my spare time. The only reason I posted those 4...

      The car works fine for other most other people. It's just an odd combo of seat height and the angle which my foot has to bend at. The only thing it affects is how I push the pedal and that motion is...

      I understand what you're saying but my left ankle doesn't bend that far. I never realized this until a range of motion measurement was done. The way I've been driving for the past 25 years has been...
