You can have ports ceramic coated. So start off with a bare port, make it the size you want, and if you want heat insulation you can have a thin layer applied, instead of the massive sleeve which porsche used. New coating is much less likely to come off.

16v is the best, but it will also cost a LOT more to do properly. If you're not trying to do a replica, you can do a good build with a modded 951 head or just buy Arash's 2.7 head. That would be the best idea.

Pictures of my intercooler setup. Picked up another stock hood latch and located them to the sides, so the intercooler would fit up front without hood latches.

Just curious to know if anyone has had a ceramic coating like Jet-Hot applied to exhaust ports, and, if so, did it work well?

My intercooler is mounted below the factory mounting position which made enough room for a larger custom intercooler and direct airflow from the front of the car.The original hood latch position was also used.

Very cool 968 you've got there! Could you start a new topic with more details about it and additional pics?

Default pistons

Somebody sugested to me to use the 944 s2 pistons in the 968 block, acording to this person this would bring down c/r to 8.5/1 (2.7l head).Can this be done??

those are indeed 993 headlamps , the lower part of the hole in the fender is enlarged just a bit to make them fit ,since these are fiberglas fenders and the headlights do not have to be adjustable (the car will not be made road legal) it's a fairly simple job ,I doubt if it could be done for a road car .
