Worlds Quickest 911 Engine Removal.Posted on Jun 26, 2017
Our 85 UR quattro is running sufficiently well enough to tackle solo classic car duty at events so we decided to drop the engine in the 911 Carrera RX.
Before we got carried away and disconnected everything we had the presence of mind to do a compression test. We think it went well.
Plugs look OK too
We have a five week window before we need the car again so we got a wiggle on:
and 1 minute and 40 seconds later it was out.
Ok it took a bit longer than that. About four hours over three days I think. Now we start in on refurbishing the top. Here's what we are thinking:
New Heater ducts
New Shifter coupling
Intake manifold gaskets
refurb air flappy door thing
replace Rubber hoses
replace Fuel lines
Replace Distributor cap
Replace Engine mounts
Replace Engine crossbar
Replace Left camshaft oil line
Replace Air filter
Replace 02 sensor
Fix oil Leaks
Rear Hood pins
money and time permitting of course.
Car is running a bit rough and making some popping noises. Also doesn't like part throttle but idles well and pulls strong. Would like to dress up the engine bay a little too. Maybe some steel braided lines instead of OE replacements. Can you think of anything else we can do?
