Chris White’s 968 Project

Those that know me know I tend to get a little carried away with Porsche projects – and in this case I suppose I have to agree with them! I happen to really like cabriolets, there is something about the top down driving that I really enjoy. I have had several different cabs and the current Porsche I have is 1994 968 cab. It’s a fairly uncommon model, for the entire 968 model run only 4665 were imported to the US and Canada and less than half of those were cabs.

In stock form is had a 3.0 liter 16 valve normally aspirated engine rated at 236hp. I drove this one around in stock form for a couple of years before succumbing to the urge to ‘make it better’. I have been building performance engines for a while so, at least to me, it only made sense to build an interesting engine for the 968. 

Very few stock parts left! The stock block was modified for lower compression pistons, custom connecting rods and a windage tray. The cylinder head has been ported with custom high temp alloy valves, custom springs, Titanium retainers and a custom designed cam drive system that allows for adjustment of both cams. The induction system has been completely changed with the addition of a Garret GTX35R turbo, custom intake & exhaust manifolds, intercooler and piping, Tial wastegate and blow off valves as well as many mods to support the turbo installation. In addition to that the engine management is being handled by a Haltech ‘standalone’ computer system. I have built similar race engines that have made 596hp at 15 psi of boost –and they are capable of running over 20psi of boost.

This engine was first fired up in early January and the whole project is on track to be complete for spring. Hopefully it will be at many CNY events this year. I’ll be the guy smiling behind the wheel!

Here is the front view of the engine – since the intercooler is now in the way of the stock latch I had to design and CNC some billet aluminum hood latch supports. You can see  a lot of custom parts that were made to get all this stuffed into the engine compartment.

Side view – the gauge in the lower right corner reads the fuel pressure which is adjusted with the red fuel pressure regulator right next to it. The ignition coils are located behind the engine on an aluminum support. The ignition system is now a coil pre cylinder design.

The big picture…a lot of stuff!

This is what the new engine management system wiring looks like inside the car…its not of the faint of heart!!

CNY Holiday Party

For those of you that missed the Holiday Party at Ann and Mason Somerville’s house you missed out on a very nice get together at their beautiful country house.

Back on December 15th the weather was not quite that nice and Mason worked his snow blower so hard that it finally gave out, he had to borrow a neighbors snow blower to finish up clearing out parking spaces for everyone. It looked like he spent many hours out in the cold and the result was very welcoming!

Ann cooked up a two Turkeys and 3 hams and there were many side dishes to choose from…and even more deserts!

The Sommeville’s house was as welcoming and warm as always, unfortunately for us this was probably the last event that we will experience their generous hospitability, it looks like they have a good offer on the house and will be moving some time this year. Our loss!

The final count was 34 CNY’ers – we had about 10 no shows due to the snow storm.

We all had a good time and enjoyed the event immensely – thanks again to the Sommevilles!

PS – if you haven’t attended any of the Sommerville’s events in the past you have missed out on seeing one of the largest cats in existence!

 

2014 Planning Meeting

Happy 2014!

Now lets get together and make sure we plan out a happy 2014.

The CNY planning meeting is being held at Steve and Connie Turco’s house nest Sunday (1/19/2014) from 1 to 5pm.

CNY will supply the main course and members online sale of cialis should bring a dish to pass (Cookies please Jean N!). The usual $5 to cover the food costs will be collected.

Please bring your ideas for new events for this year as well as any ideas to tweak our club standard events.

I would also love to talk to any members interested in helping out with the various club functions – autocross, newsletter, activities and such. We are a little thin on volunteers and could use some help!

 

The Turco’s live at 46 Oneida View Drive ( 3 separate words for GPS) Pennellville, NY 13132

Please RSVP to sturco1@twcny.rr.com or 315-676-4046 as soon as you can – absolute deadline is Friday so the Turco’s can pick up the food!

Charity 944 for sale

I though I would post this one in the ‘Club News’ area since it is a “Charity” car and it looks like its in nice shape. It looks like it would make a great starter or 2nd Porsche…maybe even a track car! No exact price was mentioned but I would bet that it could be had for $3k or maybe even less. Good deal for a nice rust free California car and a check made out to the YMCA may even be a charitable deduction (consult you accountant for an official interpretation on that!)

1983 Porsche 944 for sale by YMCA in Little Falls, NY.  The car was gifted from a donor in California to the YMCA.  The car is located near Little Falls, NY.  It has around 125k miles and is in good condition.  He did drive it and he can be called directly to answer questions.  His name is Frank and his cell number is 315-868-6050.
