Porsche 911 SC Carrera
The last installment of Project 911 SC/Carrera left off with a very sexy bottom end, a butt built for speed if you will. Ollie's Porsche Machining in Santa Ana, Calif., hot-tanked the case and removed the original fasteners to make way for the ultra-tough ARP units. The case spigot bores were enlarg

Porsche 911 SC Carrera
They say Rome wasn't built in a day. The same should be said for any well-built Porsche 911 motor. They both took some time to be designed. So, hot-rodding my own 911 engine proved to be a maddeningly slow process. I fought through the weeks of running around town chasing parts, and of meticulously

Porsche 911 SC Carrera
This is the final installment in a series detailing the metamorphosis of a limping 3.2-liter 911 Carrera engine into a fire-breathing, 3.5-liter twin-plug monster motor. If you haven't followed along to this point, valve guides that are infamous for wearing prematurely on many SC and Carrera motors

Project Porsche 951: Part 7
Stuttgart engineers did one heck of a job with the overall design of the Porsche 951. By increasing boost, matched with the correct amount of fuel, we can get easy horsepower gains. But trying to outdo these engineers in the hardware department comes with the

Project Boxster R Returns: Part 6
When we last saw Project Boxster R (ec, 08/02), it was essentially an S with a few less horsepower. The crew at Performance Products did a fantastic job in developing bolt-on upgrades for the 986 chassis, giving considerably more performance than I thought pos

Project Porsche 944 Turbo Part 5: More exhaust testing and a sturdier clutch
To recap, for those in the back of the room: Unlike a belt-driven blower, a turbocharger relies on exhaust gases to spin its turbine wheel. This turbine wheel is mated to a compressor wheel, which spins as well and forces huge amounts of atmosphere into the en

Project Porsche 944 Turbo: Part 4
It's a candy store out there for Porsche 951s when it comes to performance upgrades. So many tuners to choose from, so many different parts, and I would test them all if I could. But, because of obvious limitations, I've got to be somewhat selective, and that'

Project Porsche Boxster R Part 3: Chip, exhaust, and accessories
Before certain parties dip my fingers in molten copper, let's get a few things straight. One: I don't hate chrome wheels. Two: I don't hate mini trucks. And three: I don't hate Mustangs (except the Mustang II).

Porsche people will hate this, but here we go: One of the qualities that has made Porsches great, and so easy to tune over the decades, is the same quality that makes a Chevy a great choice for a muscle-car project--the interchangeability of parts.
