The Story

High miler meant for an LS3 conversion. When I found out the LS conversions hold no value, I decided to keep the Porsche 2.5L turbo motor. The motor has 250k on it but the previous owners kept all receipts and did very regular maintenance and repairs.I have done quite a few modifications to the vehicle with the target being a thinly disguised track car. I purchased Porsche 17" twists and had Skips Wheelworks true, paint and polish the wheels and handpaint the crests.I wrapped the wheels with Michelin Pilot Supersport II's in 225/35R17 and 255/40R17. The vehicle ECU was replaced with a Rogue Tuning modern unit and the Rogue Tuning A-Tune MAP sensor and 3D fuel/air map. This adds 30HP.I also added the AEM Failsafe electronic boost controller with 3 pounds of additional boost. This adds approximately 10 more horsepower. I am being very conservative as I was waiting for a new timing belt/waterpump/front seals maintenance before adding more boost. That maintain has been done. I just now have a new AEM Failsafe AFM Wideband O2 sensor. I will install that and couple it with the boost controller. Then I will add another 10HP through boost.I added 993 Big Red front monoblock brakes with brembo cross drilled rotors and alloy rotor hats. I added Bilstein Escort coilovers with HyperCoil 300/400# springs. I added the D9 race shifter, rear seat delete, front strut brace, and front lower control arm brace, monoball control arm bushings. I also added Lindsey Racing M035 968 front and rear uprated and adjustible swaybars.I widened the wheel stance 3 inches by swapping 1988 control arms, trailing arms, wheel hubs, etc.I also added clear front turn indicators, all red rear lights, euro rear bumper, RS adjustible rear wing. A Momo wood/graphite metal/leather wheel accents the driver position
