Default The RP 968, Could this be the epitome of our front engined watercoolers?

Hey guys,

Some of you may have been following the progress of PR Technology's RP 968 time attack weapon over the last couple months.

Well, it's almost done! And this thing is nothing short of incredible. Full carbon fibre body, crazy aero, gt3 suspension, albins sequential, turbo dohc 3L with reversed head that is good for 900hp.

Check it out, this could be the most insane Porsche transaxle project anyone has taken on so far.

thats some body kit.
interesting water pump too.

not 20 minutes ago i was wondering about running a dohc head "backwards" by flipping the cams around and making the ports switch jobs...but this works too

i wonder how they are draining the oil from the head?

Dropping a v8 in a 968 does not make it the fastest 968 out there anymore
