So its back to the drawing board! Going with a 408 LS2 with fully forged internals. Going to also do a nice cam, open up the exhaust again, and Get the heads built while its in their. This should be interesting...

Yeah... Already have 20k into it. Might as well go balls out and do another 20 to make it really nice. LOL

Post  zeusrotty on Tue Sep 11, 2012 3:43 pm

It is in the front nose under the header panel. Could be sealed better, but then I didnt plan on a busy street in Naperville to have a foot of water on it in a down poor. It is a setback but I am going to make the best of it and make the car that much better. This happened a few days after I had ordered new motor mounts, new oil pan, oil filter relocation kit, and a bunch of high end suspension bushings from elephant racing... So I am going to pull the motor, and rebuild the entire suspension while the motor is being built. Upgrade the stage 2 clutch to something that will be able to handle 500 horse, and probably rebuild the transaxle over the winter.
Anyone have any suggestions on where I can get a 951 w/lsd rebuilt to handle that kind of power? What are your thoughts?

Not sure you have to do much to a 951 transaxle for that HP, as long as you are not dropping the clutch.

What type of air cleaner where you using?

Its a K&N conicle filter. There was probably a wall of water in their. Blessing in disguise I guess. Kind of sucks because it was to be my daily driver until November when I could buy another car. Now I am forced to buy something out of necessity.

I've been told by multiple knowledgeable people that the 951 transaxle can easily hold and maintain power around the 500 mark. That is why the 951 is such a great platform to start with doing these conversions......it needs less things swapped.

So it looks like I am going to go with an LS3 block that will be completely built, bored, stroked, forged and all to be a 427... looking at around 550 - 600 horse... i will keep you all posted.

Thats 14k minimum... I can do the ls3 for 8k installed with new radiator, oil cooler, ps cooler, and all new intake, all done up really nice with AN fittings and braided hoses. etc... I'm going to do it right! Besides, an LS7 only makes 505 HP... That aint right...

Do you truly want to go for baller status? Laughing

When my LS1 goes, I plan on dropping in a nice 6L LS2 with ported heads and reusing the FAST 92 intake I'm about to install.

Why go from the LS2 to the LS3? Then you have to change intakes...

Post  zeusrotty on Mon Sep 17, 2012 5:55 pm

Yeah, I will probably go with a fast setup... And I would go with an ls3 because you can get 427 CI out of them, where with the LS2 you can only go up to a 402...

Has anyone decided wich radiator is best for track use while keeping the AC? I see so much discussion, but no real definitive result. I just want to do this once!

I had the stock radiator for awhile and it seemed like I was overwhelming it, although it would recover very quickly once I'd let off.

I have the Ron Davis/RH radiator now, temps take longer to get up there and are a little lower, but not all that different from stock. The hose routing is much better though.

I did talk to a bunch of the CMC racers here and they're seeing very similar water temps to me, so I'm not nearly as concerned now as I was before...

I recently switched from a stock turbo rad to the fancy schmancy Wizard radiator from Lindsay. But I can't say that it's cooling any better than the stocker. It does have a much better drain setup, though.

Post  zeusrotty on Fri Nov 02, 2012 6:08 pm

Is there an extra 3/8 of an inch of room in there side to side for the radiator? The reason I asked is because I spoke to Dennis at Ron Davis and I asked if they could incorporate an oil cooler into the actual radiator itself and he said he could do that. It would only be an extra 180.00 plus lines etc...

Not without cutting some of the sheet metal. The rad is fully surrounded. Check out this dual oil/water cooler made by Wizard. I got the one w/o the oil cooler as mine is in place of the intercooler.

Post  Porch on Sat Nov 03, 2012 11:35 am

I'm curious how much of the stock radiator cooling problems are caused by the lack of the air directors that Porsche put on. For example we don't have the covers under the engine that the stock car came with. I think a lot of people leave the air deflectors up front off, too.

One of these days i'm going to get some aluminum and make a big flat cover that goes between the radiator and the crossmember. (Sorry, the descriptive part of my brain isn't working this morning...hopefully you can figure out what i mean!)

Post  zeusrotty on Mon Dec 10, 2012 9:39 pm

Going out and grabbing a new battery. I figured its had plenty of time to dry out, and I wanted to see if this motor would at least turn over. So I throw the plugs back in, and I throw the wires back on and give it the old heave ho. And it runs. Starts right up after a few pops. So I turn it off right away and drain the oil, which is full of water, pull the oil filter and that's where I'm at.
My plan is to go buy some cheap heavy oil and a filter, run it again with that for a few minutes, and see how that goes. Drain it again, throw another filter on it and If it seems okay then I will go ahead and put the good stuff in (Amsoil)..
Is there anything else I should do?

I would go with a lightweight oil for flushing purposes.

Okay. I just figured I should do a heavier weight to help protect the motor u till its done flushing.

Post  944-LT1 on Mon Dec 10, 2012 11:00 pm

Id think you would want an oil that will seep into the clearances such as the bearings quickly and more freely than a heavywegiht oil would.

You can use 0W30 which will flow nicely and protect on startup as a zero weight oil and once at operating temperature it will act as normal 30 weight oil.
