Porsche 911 GT3 RS

But more realistically for my price range, I'd love to pick up a 944 next year and drop in a 968 engine and transmission.

Why not just get a 968 then?


Oh, and if you do decide to do that, you might as well rebuild the 3.0L four banger into a turbo setup while you are at it.

944s can be had for about half the cost of a 968 and are lighter. Problem will be finding the parts cheap to make it worth it, but given time I think I might be able to pull it off.

If I had a 968 I'd keep it N/A, ~200hp would be fine for me.

Maybe a 944 turbo would be a good option, but harder to find.

And no evil LS1 mods :lol:

Eh, out here 944s go for less than 4 grand for one in great condition inside and out with low miles for their age. The joys of living in CA :D

favorite cars have to be italian, german and JDM cars. italian top cars would have to be ferrari/lamborghini/pagani, german would have to be porsche/bmw/benz/audi,. might have some more that forgot to mention. then japanese, god theres too much to list lol..

but one of my dreams cars has to be the air-cooled porsche 993 turbo "s" 0-60 in 3.6sec with 424hp. OMG!! plus those looks... (w00t) the new 2007/8porsche turbos/gt2 look good too. another would be ferrari f50 or enzo

My '87 Dodge Shelby Charger GLHS, and the '68-70 Chargers, specifically the '68. I want a '68 Charger sooo bad right now, I got a built 440 sitting in an old parts truck just waiting for it :) After those would be the Viper and the '71 Challenger. Attached an old pic of my GLHS, it's currently awaiting a session w/ a frame machine right now :(

Woo! Turbo Doge FTW! My dad owns a '87 GLHS too. His is #658 of 1000.

Are you on the Turbo Dodge forums?

IamThe280Z - Your thiunking of the Chrysler Conquest, also the Starion as you said.

Yeah I am on the TurboDodge, Turbo-Mopar, and BoostedMopar sites. Same name there too. Mostly I'm on the BoostedMopar site (see my sig ;) ) and just go to the others to buy/sell stuff. One of my best friends owns BM.

My GLHS is #392. I also currently have an '84 Shelby Charger that's in the middle of a 2.0 DOHC swap, an '85 Turbo Z, an '87 Shelby Z, an '83 Rampage 2.2, and an '89 Lebaron that's getting a V6 and a newer cockpit interior. And that's just my turbo Dodges ;) I think I have somewhere around 16-18 cars and trucks right now, mostly Dodges, except for the 240Z, the RX-7 Turbo II, and my '92 Tercel daily.

IamThe280Z, if I were an uptight TD guy I would verbally beat you for comparing the Charger to a Conquest :lol: Although Conquests are sweet too, I had a couple but never got to drive them much due to either engine or title problems.

I wonder how many people here know/can guess what GLHS stands for?

GLH = Goes like hell

GLHS = Goes like hell, Shelby

Im a Turbo Dodge guy, I was raised around my dads GLHS Charger and his best friends Spirit, both with 2.2 engines. Now my dads GLHS is getting a built 2.5 swap. Has everything to achieve 400whp on a decent tune, atleast this is according to the guys on the TD forums.

You got it B) I'm keeping mine a 2.2, if I go to something else it'll be a 2.0 or 2.4 DOHC. 400hp on a 2.5, better have a good ported head and run 25psi at least w/ a good intercooler. I assume 8v still? I rarely make over to TD.com other than in the classifieds, spend most of my time on BoostedMopar.

What kind of Spirit?

Thats all I know of, he is running a built (I mean REALLY built) 8v 2.5 engine with a Spearco intercooler. Knowing my dad, a hell of a lotta boost too.

The Spirit, I cant remember, a '88 with a 2.2 I believe. Sorry, I was really young when the Spirit was sold for a Shelby Charger.

This man speaks the truth.

I used to have an FC, but i was kidding myself when i told myself I dreamed of FCs more than FDs. After driving a few FDs, the FD is the official car of my realistic dreams.

FCs do have quite a few "advantages" over FDs though, depending on car setup choice.

I am a new owner of an FD as of a month or so ago. :lol:

After I finish pulling the engine and finishing the port job, I'll post up all of my "progress" pictures. Body is in niiiiiiiice shape.

I've had an FC for years though. :lol:

Let me know if you need any parts. I could probably get you some upgrades at my discounted rates.

Actually, funny you should say, I talked to my dad and it was a Red Spirit R/T! LOL, he may have a pic or two of the cars together. If he can find them, I'll get them up here to you.


To the 7 fans - I couldn't tell you if I liked the FC or FD. I've driven both the Sa22 and the FC3S and liked the FC more out of the two. I dont know if I could tell you if I liked the FD more, never had the great oppertunity to drive one.

I would be a FC owner, that was my first car of choice when I was growing up, but my parents didnt know the first thing when it came to rotary engines so I was told I couldnt get one. They werent going to trust my with my knowledge of the wankel engines, even though I learned how they worked before a conventional (piston) internal combustion engine.

Yoshida Seiji + BMWNeoType - I envy you guys, I would put my soul into a RX-7. But Im limited due to my parents, although it might have been a good idea (for my own good). I plan to get rid of the MR2 if I had ever had the change to afford an RX7.
