  1. Are we sure it's a two door coupe? They could be working on a 'coupe' like the new cayenne coupe, ie not a 'coupe' at all.
  2. Haha, maybe one day I have been tempted to set up a double din head unit with VEMS display, but I already have an analog oil temp and boost gauge down there so no real need.
  3. Yep that's it. Unfortunately I didn't take any pics during the installation, but here's a pic off google showing were to place the LED strip. You can see that the two mirrors on the right have already been rubbed off leaving clear windows which the LED stip gets stuck over. I did this mod back in 2015 and have had no issues whatsoever with it since. The only notes I have is that the LEDS are very white, so don't match the rest of the incandescent bulbs in the rest of the interior. If I did it again I'd try to find a warmer colour if possible, or perhaps put a translucent yellowish film over the windows under the LED strip. @OzJustin and @Jason E happy to show you boys mine first if you wanna see how it looks in person.
  4. Another way to fix this issue is to remove the reflective coating all together by rubbing it off with paint thinner. This leaves 3 windows which you can then stick an LED strip over to shine directly at the dials. The LED strip is spliced to the wires for a nearby bulb that lights up the dash vent slider label. Works with the dimmer and everything. I used a strip like this https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/sca-sca-strip-light---led-12v-30cm-flexible-black/386326.html Dim: Bright:
  5. Bastards, I hope the car is found and they get what they deserve.
  6. Please for the love of god buy this beast Sam so I can come for passenger rides and drown in my own bodily fluids. @Uncle any chance you would swap for a 370hp 951...and like 50 bucks cash (my life's savings) your way? 😛😛
  7. Yes, as far as I know 968 is the same as late 944. Out of curiosity, which local company stocks 968 coilovers?
  8. Sorry I didn't realize you meant solid rubber mounts. Normally 'solid' mounts means solid metal mounts, ie no dampening at all, which you definitely would notice.
  9. There is a very minimal increase in noise, but that's about it. I changed to an only944 shifter at the same time, so shifting was improved anyway.
  10. Yep, the empi's are direct bolt on to the 944 turbo axles. No NVH issues at all, they are functionally identical to the stock CV's, just stronger materials and a better cage. I did the trans mount fill with Shore A65 two part polyurethane elastomer. It's been two years since, with almost 20000 kms and many track days and no longevity issues to report. I inspected the mount when I pulled the box out to upgrade my clutch a couple months ago and it was fine.
  11. If it's a street car, I'd avoid solid engine mounts....they introduce a huge amount of noise and vibration.
  12. Keen to see what you find about the re-manufactured RHD steering shaft, I'd be up for combining an order and sharing postage if you like. Regarding the axles, a good option is to keep the axles, and just upgrade the CV joints with new boots. I just did this with these forged chromoly EMPI CV joints. Seems it's about the same price as whole replacement axles. https://www.v-dubstore.com/product-p/e98-5084-b.htm I also highly recommend filling the transmount with poly, the stock mount lets the box swing side to side a couple cm which is no good! I have some poly left over from doing mine which you are welcome to use.
  13. Yesss! I hope this means what I think it means. I knew you would come back eventually. Good luck in your search Patrick.
  14. Nice swap, should be a hoot to drive when it's done. There's a guy in the US on the FB group 'Porsche 944 Outlaws' who's doing a similar swap with a 4.2 v8. Looks like he had to clearance the strut tower bracing a little, and also modify the firewall.
  15. That would make a nice base for a turbo track car build.
