Sorry to hear about your father's passing but this sounds like a great learning opportunity for you.

First of all, the Haynes manual is pretty much worthless for a turbo. Clark's Garage has much...

Hey Tom,
Glad to see you're still around. I agree w/ Cyclone. Assuming reasonable condition $10k sounds about right considering the boost issue. Fix that and add another thousand or 2.

What year is your car? '88TS and '89s used a 28 pin chip. Earlier cars had 26 pins.

Unless you've got the head off, I don't consider the head gasket a 'while you're in there' replacement. If no signs of issues then I suggest leaving it along. It's a pretty significant undertaking.

If the oil looks clean and not cruddy around the valvetrain area then I wouldn't bother. If not, then maybe throw in some Seafoam or similar to break up any deposits.

Any idea how old the timing...

Some good suggestions from Noah. Be sure to turn to engine over by hand a few revolutions to ensure it isn't seized.

Depending upon the nature of the bend, an experienced rim guy may be able to fix it with a hammer. A few weeks ago we found an inner barrel on 1 wheel was bent in. My tire/wheel guy (a former Fikse...

I've never counted teeth either. I also just did the job w/o a flywheel lock. Seemed to go OK, though I wasn't removing the crank gear and pulley.
Do yourself a favor and pull the spark plugs (good...

If you track to car or drive spiritedly, I'd suggest going with a lower profile.

The 944T is more of a grand touring car when compared to an air-cooled 911. If that's what you're after, then they can be really enjoyable. The engine will be quieter but you can open up the exhaust...

Agreed. Probably a bit overpriced but over all the car doesn't look horrible.
