Lightbulb Life With Porsche 944 Street/Track FULL REBUILD

Hello everyone!
Im new guy here and 944 is my first Porsche.

I bought car this summer by accident and unfortunately it was in bad condition. Totally rusted door sill, a bit rusted floor and more surprises all around.
I know that this car will go for the full rebuild and I will finally build my street/track car.

I plan to post here my progress and question "how to.." or "does this fits?" and maybe more stupid ones

I started to strip car.

How it looks now you can see in my videos on YT. Enjoy!

There's no such thing as "premium competition coilers" for that price. Not even good street stuff for that price. Could be great stuff (for that price) but don't kid yourself.

Koni 944 Spec/Cup setup is $1365 at Paragon Products
