Thanks good common

One of my all time favor car is 993 GT2

Can't really afford it so aleast I can own the style right

Get the kit from A.I.R , don't think they are the original designer !!

The 968 turbo that once build by Kelly Mose racing
Is first one with the flare . Every one took the idea

But I don't see that many 968 with this flare !?
I wonder why ....

just an update.... car is now at a new temporary home [Eric's shop]....


seller of the above LS3 turned out to be a scammer.

first, the photos of the engine didn't look right. the ad didn't exactly impress me either. then it was Miami Gardens... so i go to his home page [better late than never, right?] surprise; his sales references [totaling 2 and totaling under 5 dollars] are obvious fakes... things just got more funny from there. first, he gives me a magic jack number, but, it receives no calls. but he calls me back promptly... the voice is that of a kid but with a thick, arab accent. i tell him the item looks suspicious, but i'd be happy to come pick it up and haul it away for cash once he comes up with a sound explanation of how the engine came to be for sale, etc.... he talks with me for a few minutes and sounds like he knows nothing about Vettes or LS engines, but he agrees and says he'll call back in an hour and tell me he'll have more information about the car and engine then.... and how we can arrange a time for pickup....

once hanging up, i called Scoggin Dickey and gave them the first payment for my 6.4 litre LS7/LS3 hybrid engine.

the LS3 scammer guy never called back and quietly withdrew the sale.


the original engine with 172 k miles [still running good] is being removed.


it did a fine job and will be missed.


please add my name to the in process list...

You can change mine to: Finished. Well, a project is never finished, but has done an initial 100 miles of road testing. Off to the track at the end of the month.

Hello all,
I've just bought a car (1986 944) and have started to gather parts. No engine yet.

Does anyone know of a Right Hand Drive conversion?
