Drive train:

Engine replaced with rebuilt engine using factory parts as listed. 3.0L S2 block, forged 968 pistons machined for 8.5 to 1 compression, 3.0L S2 crank. Rebuilt 2.7L head with new guides, turbo exhaust valves, springs and retainers. All belts, rollers and water pump, mounts replaced. Intercooler upgraded to Lindsey racing stage II. Turbo upgraded to Garrett TO4E hybrid with KKK style hot side. upgraded 55lb injectors with MAF conversion, Split Second programmable fueling unit, upgraded chip, high flow fuel pump. Turbo back 3” Fabspeed stainless exhaust with cat bypass . The clutch disk and pressure plate were replaced with a high performance unit from KEP and the torque tube was rebuilt with new bearings. Greddy boost controller (running 14lbs of boost) with modified wastegate. Stock transmission was replaced with one from a 944 S2 which has a stronger input shaft, limited slip and shorter ring and pinion.

The interior is in good condition with the exception of the seat bottoms (see pics). Cold AC, upgraded to R134, tinted windows, vented header panel, sunroof works, hatch in good condition with no delamination.

Cruise control doesn’t work (control module-common problem). The paint is fair, pealing clear coat on roof and stone chips on front and hood, being a 30 years old has some dents and dings. The worstis a small dent in the rear just under the turbo badging. One of the rear bumper side pieces is torn (Good replacement included). There is a small amount of damage on very front of right front fender and bumper cover. The front under bumper rubber (bat wing) is not currently attached but two come with the car. Like many of these cars the dash is cracked.

The engine was built in 2009. Since then I have driven the car 10-15K miles. My interests have turned to other projects and it’s time to sell this car.
