HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.

Hi all, happy New Year.  It seems that most of my posts regard weight differences as a result of the swap.  It is likely the most asked question I get.  I just removed the LS6 for a winter freshen up, and realized I have both motors side by side in the shop, complete from the torque tube forward. So, here goes-

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

85 2.5L engine, complete from the torque tube flange forward = 445.0lbs

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
03 5.7L LS6 engine, complete from the torque tube flange forward = 487.0lbs

Porsche engine - 445lbs
LS6 engine - 487lbs

Difference - +42lbs.

I think this is hard to argue??  Comments?

Ciao for now!
Gord.

I've weighed a complete 944 turbo engine, and it was 472 lbs. A difference of 15 lbs. Virtually no change in the handling characteristics of a 944.

Just to add to the mix. I swapped my 944 turbo enghine for a '95 corvette LT1 which has the alloy heads.
I don't have AC or power steering and the only change I made was to pump up the front tyres by a few pounds.
The handling is not affected and I did check corner weights before and after conversion, to my surprise there was almost no difference.
So happy days.

Its remarkable how close in weight the aluminum LS is to the stock 4 cylinders, makes it easy to justify the swap and not really lose the handling characteristics & balance
