928 Pro Tour LS3 / Z06 Build
 
4 Attachment(s)
I bought a 1983 S with 129,000 miles, California car, which I am doing the LS3 / Z06 5 speed conversion on. I own a 1984 928s 5 speed Euro that has been a handful since purchase and is a love hate relationship. I really like the style and handling of the 928 and have done other unconventional 911 builds and decided to venture in on the 928.

I am impressed with the direction and creativity of, 77tony, xschop, Dinsdale, The Fixer, FLYVMO and other builds. I would like to share my build and contribute to the the forum since I am learning from others.

Here is the start.

How is this going to pass the emission inspection? Interesting direction for a clean looking car.

I would look into this before going any further.

I am not worried about it.

You should be worried !!!! Unless you intend to buy an illegal rat smog no way in hell it is getting registered in California.

I am using the LS3 E-Rod motor, which is specifically designed to meet CA smog. The motor comes with cats and all the other goodies to make it legal. GM designed the package for hot roders in CA.

I have been working on the car for the last month. I purchased a 2002 Z06 6 speed trans and torque tube with supposedly less than 100k miles. I sent the torque tube off to Carl at 928 Motorsports for the conversion. In addition I orderd the Ls conversion from Renegade, who is in communication with Carl to convert the parts accordingly.

Agreed, nothing worst than a 30 plus year old grease bucket. I can't count the number of ruin t-shirts.

Used Lizard Skin Sound Insulation and Cearmic (heat insulation) spray on both the firewall and interior. Two coats each and I will install additional layer of adhesive back heat and sound proofing.
