944 engine WAS: Re: [DMCForum] Re: Fixing Andrei's Engine [OT]



It will be very close.  When I get some free time I am going to take our
extra engine up to Walt's and see how it will fit.  To get 350hp you need a
951(turbo 944) then put on a slightly larger turbo and a few other little
tweeks and your good to go, everything is external to the engine.  Some
people say you need to have the heads o-ringed but others have never cracked
the engine open and have no problems.  If you go to
http://forums.rennlist.com/ and look in the different 944 lists you will
find lots of information.  or www.968s.com a guy got to 350hp with injectors
and a supercharger.
