TUCKER's STORY

Hi, my name’s Tucker, and I’m a rather fledgling enthusiast at 17 years old. (If I’ve remembered to change this on my birthday, it’s correct). I drive a 1985 Porsche 944 2.5l. It used to be a track only car, so I’ve got some work to do to make it legal again. Thanks for stopping by!

Anyone recognize what brand these coil overs are?

Got the car to fire on starter fluid yesterday. Think my fuel pump is dead.

Made some progress today!! Got not only a solid connection with a battery to turn on the hazards, but I also got the engine to turn over! https://instagram.com/p/BiqA1AjFlGw7DOb46oPBh41EPP7m29keA6M4wI0/ https://instagram.com/p/BiqFGRwlh4B1pMPf_FTovIT85zgqRhr3U_gnxs0/

Finally got my key!

Tucker MacLellan168 days ago

Thought we would have made some progress on the car. Still on the quest for a key, but I’ll keep you all updated.

It's happening soon...

I'm not the only person who sees the Toyota GT-86 as the sequel to the Supra as opposed to the AE86, right? It's the affordable Japanese sports car motif.

Is it usual/smart to drill and slot the stock rotors on my car? Is it cost effective?

I definitely would not do them myself. When you see drilled and slotted rotors they are done with a machine and I'm sure they are extensively tested. Drilling your own holes will make the rotor a lot weaker and might not help with cooling. If you really want them go for DBA, AP racing, etc.

[]Hayden Baker

You definitely do not want to do that. The price difference is minimal and you could really compromise the safety if the rotor if you drill in the wrong place. Plus you'll spend hours measuring and drilling going through a dozen drill bits. Really you just want slotted rotors anyways. Drilled tend to crack with heavy use

[]Tucker MacLellan

I see. Thanks!

[]Wilson Oberholzer

I would think that it would be more cost effective to go with a set of new rotors that are already slotted and drilled. Most standard rotors aren't manufactured to handled having that much material removed from them or go through the type of abuse that drilled/slotted rotors would experience.

[]Tucker MacLellan

I was thinking that. Thanks!

Which LS motor is the best bang for your buck if I were to swap it into my 944? #advice

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Hayden Baker

Iron block would for sure be the LQ4. It's the same as an LS2 but with an iron block. The LS1 will be your best aluminum block budget option. The LS1 will be lighter and make more power but the LQ4 will be a lot cheaper and better for boost

[]Tucker MacLellan

Alright. Thanks for the input.

[]Hayden Baker

No problem man

[]Antoni Dabrowski

I'd imagine any LS motor is a huge bank for your buck, don't have too much knowledge of all of the swaps but LS1 seems to be very commonly used in swaps. Jalopnik had an article on this, to quote them "For my selection I focused on Chevy 2500 HD Vans which can come equipped with the LQ4 6.0L V8 which is very similar to 6.0L LS2 but with an iron block. The LQ4 produces 325hp and 370 ft-lbs in this application in stock form."

What are decently priced tires (215/60R15) similar to that of Pirelli P6000s? I'd like to spend no more than $200 per tire.

Federal tires are sweet and really cheap if you hit up one of their SoCal representatives on Facebook. I think they were around 100 a tire for 265 R18 sizes so yours will definitely be cheap. I think the model was the 595RSRR. Looks sweet, grips like crazy, and is cheap to boot. I'm definitely gonna go with these next. The Ventus is a great tire but I don't think it's on the same level of grip.

[]Hayden Baker

Hankook Ventus Evo 2 is a good performance tire for the money. It's probably going to be what I go with on my E39 for me next tire. I also like the ContiSport tire. It held up decent on the track on my 350Z and has been very comfortable on the street.

[]Tucker MacLellan

Thanks for the advice.

Tucker MacLellan247 days ago

I'm going to be getting a porsche 944 soon. The engine isn't running right now, but it was when it was park. As a rule of thumb, what steps should I follow to get it started while avoiding hurting it?

When you flush all the fluids, examine the oil. Make sure there's no water, excessive gunk, or metal flakes in it. If it is, you're in for a world of hurt if you start that motor

[]Tucker MacLellan

Thanks for the advice!

[]Wilson Oberholzer

I'd check over all of the fluids. Make sure that they are all at the proper levels and that they are in good enough condition to warrant starting it up. Make sure you have fresh fuel too. If it's been sitting for awhile a fuel filter might be a good idea. Try to get a look inside the cylinders if you can to make sure there's no rust.

[]Tucker MacLellan

Ok. Thank you!
