Hey guys I've been thinking about doing an old school 350 install with a Carburetor. I was wondering how would the factory Porsche gauges work with this style setup? Also would it be possible to keep that factory brake booster and brake cylinder? I also imagine that the wiring to get the engine to run would be way simpler since there aren't a variety of sensor and injectors. I assume I would just need the same components of the LT1 conversions? Would I need the Hydraulic throw out slave bearing as well?

If any one has pics I would love to see them.

i own two 944's with V8 motors .
the SBC 350 carbed car i use for endurance racing 12 and 24 hour event's .
i wanted a very simple car for that type of racing with less to brake so i built the motor for that .
so far it done 18 endurance events and countless test and tune days with out any drake downs and has won it's class many time .
the tach did not work with my HEI dis . i don't know why i never looked into it i just changed it out to to auto meter . because i want guages for oil temp , oil pressure , water temp , volt's and so on that tell me what they are with real temps and pressure's i changed all the gauges to the same style . it's better to see the temp guage reading telling you its 180degrees by numbers that a little needle with no numbers .

the brake booster and master did not fit . i went with a wilwood dual masters , peddle set up and rennbay front calipers . they work quight good as i have to use the 15" rims in my class so the calipers fit and work . i also installed a brake dias gauge with incar ajuster for the brake bias .

as for wiring OMG it's ez there are a total of 6 wires to the motor . as most of the wiring get removed the weight savings is much more than people think . i pulled out all the wiring in the car and rewired it as i did not need most all of it . things i had to have are head , markers ,brake and guage lights , fuel pump , lap timer , and 6 wires to the motor . that's about it .
that is another reason why i did a carbed motor there is next to nothing to brake down .

i got the SBC motor for free as it was in a abandoned vehicle at my shop . i did rebuild the motor but the total cost of the hole build of the car with the metarial for the cage and the fire system and other safety gear was just over 8K .
i have built quight a few 944 v8 cars to date . i had another 948 i sold it too had a sbc 350 motor i did that car on the cheap and the total cost of that build was 3600 dollars . most every thing i needed i got at swap meets or used from on line sites like racingjunk .
i how ever don't buy the install kits i like to design and build things my self so other than time it takes to do the building and fab work that too cuts the cost way down .
