I've been thinking about upgrades to our cars that might be interesting, though impossible. For instance, I have been wondering how hard it would be to put a Boxter/Caymen or Boxter/Caymen S engine in our great cars. With the tranny in the back and a torque tube, is putting a different engine in a 968 impossible? (I saw the video about the buy who put a (I think) Corvette engine in a 968. (He put it up for sale.)
Then, I'm wondering about replacing the flip-up headlights with a 911-style set of headlights or HID headlamps that are set and don't flip up.
Anybody have any other thoughts about what you might find interesting or the practicality of such changes?
You're right. Those Cayman engines are the flat 6 in differing sizes depending on whether you have the S. I am not even sure they pack any more horsepower than what we have in our cars, now. The headlight thing sounds very interesting. Is the discussion here? That might be worth checking out.
I ran into a guy a few days ago, who thought my 968 was a new Porsche model. He was raving about the looks. Most people do when they see the car, which is really neat.
Do you have any experience fixing cruise control or rear wipers? <BIG GRIN> Any advice on troubleshooting them? I've had numerous problems with the rear wiper. The cruise control ran great when I first got the car but has stopped working now.
Thanks Ken. As always. I owe ya. I'll let you know how things turn out with this. Did you have any ideas of things you thought might be interesting for the 968? I almost hate to think about changing a classic, though. This car is so darned beautiful as it is.
Headlights are only up when it is, um, dark. :)
LML you are a genius!
