Go to the Clark's Garage website - there's a 944 buyer's guide on there.

But, basically, like any Porsche, how well has it been maintained? Are there records? Porsche parts aren't cheap, so...

It really depends on your current brake solution... is there a booster? If not, what master cylinder? What pedal? What leverage ratio? What calipers? If there is a booster, what type? Mustang...

If you don't have them already, download the wiring diagrams from the factory service manual (FSM) and learn how to read them.

You shouldn't have to pull any of the clips off - but, if you do, just notice that the lip on the fuel rail sits in the little groove on the clip. Have some o-ring assembly grease (silicon grease,...

Broken timing belt = bent valves

My record is bending 6 of the 8!
