The Conquest's new engine going together, a 350 chevy with some very nice Summit aluminum heads, 64cc chambers, that'll make some power.

I'm still eager to see how the whole thing comes together.

was a 2.6 not "sweet" enough for you? Gritboy. Not everything needs a damn 350.

#3, Woah. Ok, that's rather unnecessary.

Having trouble deducing the tone of your post, but if you're seriously trying to call LTR a gritboy for his choice of replacement engine, I already know whose side I'd take on the issue. Watch it.

Apparently RRB thinks that anyone who swaps a V8 into a foreign-built car is a "gritboy." This isn't the first time he's said it, and it's getting a little tiresome.

In my opinion, it's not that LTR thinks smallblock V8s are the end-all, be-all to engines... they're just reasonably-priced to build, he obviously has a lot of experience with working on them, and he only swaps them into vehicles whose original engines are already dead.

#3, If by "sweet" you mean "Spun it's bearings and siezed up" then yes, the Conquests 2.6 isn't sweet enough for me. There's a reason I was able to get the car for $500, it was junk.

#5, Foreign? I didn't buy no piece a Jap-Scrap! It's a Mopar! [/Grittboy]

#6, Pretty much, you'll note I haven't replaced the motor in the 944 yet and have no plans to do so.

I'm eager to see more of the project, because I look at it as the sum of its parts....it's a lightweight, RWD, V8-powered sports coupe built on a low budget. What's not to like?

While the Conquest may be a sought-after and hard to find RWD platform, the G54B engine itself was not a paragon of reliability, performance, or technological innovation. This is hardly automotive blasphemy.

#5, Serriously? That riles him up?

hey, more power to ya LTR! You've got more than enough actual car work posted here to end any arguments as far as i'm concerned. I say, while you're at it, chuck a small block in the 944 for good measure!

Hmm. Not really sure what I think of this build. Since opposition isn't welcome, I think I'll just walk away.

I will say this though, certain vehicles are awesome with small-block swaps. Interpret that how you will.

opposition is ok, the name callin' aint

#14, 454 nailed it. If you have another opinion about what kind of engine would be better for a replacement, you're free to express yourself... but belittling someone for deciding on an engine due to their own personal experience, and performance/cost needs, is just completely unwarranted.

Every time I look in newest images and see a thumb of a big, beautiful engine sitting in a garage I just know LTR posted it.

I'm not sure what to think about this. Yes, it's great but there is a slight nagging somewhere in my head. Anyway.
Will the driveline cope with the torque?
