I called these guys once for a price to wheel align my 924. After receiving the price I needed to clarify if the price was infact to buy the wheel aligning machine...

Notice the intake and exhaust, they are swapped. I wonder how they timed it out. Does the head fit backwards, or did they need to re machine the ports....

I suppose nothing says you can,t have the intake cam on the right side of the motor, if you get everything correct.

Creates an interesting exhaust path, doesn't it?

They likely used a 928GTS head which is very similar and has one head that is mirrored.

They actually put the head on backwards..

If you look closely you can see the new oil drains so we can switch the head around. We machined off the sprockets on the cams to give us more clearance.



Bleeders on what is now the high side of the head.



Intake

Thanks guys, rotating the head was not overly complicated, just the oil and water paths, it meant we could make a better exhaust manifold and we now have the hot and cold sides of the engine separated.



The intercooler radiator combo is from pwr, intake temps were 5 degrees above ambient



Custom engine and turbo mounts
