      I would think so, a fully dressed NASCAR Cup engine weighs about 550lbs.

      As for the power levels, the torque peak in a NASCAR V-8 is pretty high at @ 7,500+ rpm, but at 525-550 lb/ft. it makes a...

      Yeah understood. This car actually got some GR-2s recently apparently, so he's looking for something past that. Good idea to check the condition of the bushings though. Do the top hats on these go...

      Ah that's right! The '99 C2s were cable throttle, but I believe the 996 C4s were E-Gas from the beginning in the US. All of them were drive by wire E-Gas in 2000.

      Well with those early 3.4L versions of the M96 engine, it was the IMS and rear main seal failures mainly. By the time 1999 rolled around, I believe Porsche had ironed out the issues with the famed...

      Nope I'm right there with ya. The '99-'01 early body style is definitely my favorite. It's elegant, understated, but still a 911. Too bad the engines were the worst of the lot.

      While we're at it,...

      It's a friend's car, and definitely not a candidate for a trade-in. He's just seeing what's possible while he has the thing.

      No, timing belt just once but you have to retension it which isn't a big deal.

      Again, never heard that about the pre '87 top ends of the 944 engine....and definitely never that you have to do a...
