Congrats on making the effort. For me a lot of the enjoyment is in the total effort from start to finish, not just the trophy or record. I've been running 12 and 24 hour enduros in SCCA for the past ...

We indeed made the trip to the Salt in August but the rain gods had more to say than did the racers. After the rains fell the day before the event was to begin, we waited for three days while the salt ...

Sounds like the rubber gasket between the pump and tank has given up the ghost. Order a new one from Pelican. It only takes a few minutes to install. Might be a good idea to burn up as much gas in the ...

Getting back to the point of this post, anyone here who can comment on the 924 driveline compatibility with the 3 liter block?. In a perfect world I'd love to put my clutch on the 968 flywheel and bol ...

I guess you'll be modifying the 3L as well so it may make not so much difference but perhaps the 968 motor is a better start as it has around 240HP off the bat?
Compared to the S2 engine it has this ...

As some here know, I run a '79 924 at Bonneville and other land speed racing venue. It has a fairly highly modified 2 liter naturally aspirated motor making about 210 horsepower. The car is a SCTA and ...

I lost the only keys for my 924. I can pry the door to get in, but still no key to start it.
