I believe you will also need the CV joints as the 968 CV's were different lengths. The mount for the 968 and 951 transmission (I believe) may be different as well. Besides that, I cant think of anything else you would need.

Fox the CV I will order GkN motorsport axle , and as for mount I will need to find out

Hope all the shift linkage will be similar

But I think I will wait until I get a right LSD install and swap all at once
Right now I will just try to live with close ratio 6mt Exclamation

Yeah, Im not sure about the shifter linkage either. I thought there was one or two guys on this forum with 968s. Hopefully they will chime in soon?

You will need the Torque tube, Transmission, shifter linkage(the tube part), and the mount. You will need to make spacers for the transmission mount as well. It needs to be spaced down about an inch.

You talk about a six speed track car, the 951 transmission is 5 speed unless my 951 transmission has a hidden gear somewhere.

Sounds like you have air in the system. Remove the small hose from the front on drivers side head, remove the radiator cap and put the small hose into reservoir and run engine. You might have to do this for several minutes and rev the engine to move any tapped air. Engine should run between first and second lines on the gauge when bled properly.

This is what I plan to do next

The shop who did the install

Have a vale on one of heater line , I think this is for bleeding air


But in the hot weatther where I live (100+f) I think bigger radiator is need it

Looks like a very nice swap! Let us know how the exhaust works out. It should make a big difference!

Really nice job, is that the x-pipe under the tunnel brace or just how the two exhausts were routed?

i guess 90% of people on this forum own 944

so 968 LSX is rare kind


some update of the project... will be out of town for business for 3 week....

what is best thing to do ? drop your car to body shop to have fresh coat of paint and install

wide body

last night test fit some old school 930 turbo wheels !! the result is just what i expect it !!

cant wait to see it when i am back from trip
