For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Oh dont worry ill be asking plenty of questions im sure. The first step for me is to secure the motor and the ecu/harness.

After that ill start working everything together and get the build done.

i see your wanting to use the ls motor for your conversion.i used an early small block which is simular to the lt1 style..its pretty much the same as a manual trans conversion you just dont need the hydralic slave setup.

So I just recently acquired an 87 944 NA from my dad who passed away this past December. He was in the process of rebuilding the engine when he got sick so the top and bottom parts of the engine are off already. My plan is to do an LS swap but my problem is that it is an automatic car. I know it can be done with the auto setup but I just don't want it that way. I also know that I could sell the car and buy a manual one but it was my dad's and I want to keep THIS one.
So my question is this. What parts will I need from a manual car and should they be from a specific model ( 951 )? Keep in mind that I will be doing this swap at the same time as I do the LS swap. From what I have read I will need the torque tube, shifter assembly, clutch pedal assembly and associated parts, a manual transaxle and associated axle shafts, new center console pieces and new gauge set. What else am I missing? Is this worth doing or should I swap to a corvette manual setup all the way back? Thanks for the help for this newb to Porsches and LS swaps.

the admin eric from texas perf concepts . just did a ls swap on a n/a auto car it is possible.personly it depends how complex that you want to be on fabricating if you try to install corvette drivetrain.the easy route would be to purchase a donor 944 with a 5speed  to keep your original 944 is an auto car with a carbed is a good running car but due to lower gear ratio its top end speed isnt as much as a stick shift 944 .contact texas performance concepts as they are very knowledgable with the conversions and are very good at profesional installs that look factory and very impressive
