    Gib- Light Yellow is a great color, one of the best for an early 911, whatever variety. You do what I dream of. I just need a bit more space and a little less college tuition. Eye candy below:

    Al:

    Most likely Toad Hall used the factory 2.5 MFI, but it could have been with 46 Webers either one producing 275 hp at 8000. There were a couple of LY Toad Hall cars and several others in Europe which used the color, including one privateer tuned by Kremer.

    Only thing I might consider were I in your shoes is making this a go-anywhere, anytime counterpoint to your green car in ways you can't see on the outside or while using it, one of which might be doing hidden A/C (I've seen one very slick setup that put the compressor under the left taillight), more comfortable suspension, a 3.4 w/Motec or Motronic, etc. Then again...

    Thanks for the suggestions, guys. This stage (clean sheet) in a project is always a good time to really think through all the details, and do 'out of the box' thinking as Pete suggested. Raj's love for Sporto cars gave me a moment of pause, and there is a 2.4T Sporto MFI engine in Prescott, AZ that could help move in the direction of restoring the car to its original configuration.

    But my gut says stay with what originally inspired me for so long....a LY ST (thanks Bob), based on the concept of a privateer in the day wanting to modify his 72T for competition purposes...either track or rally. What makes the ST era so aluring is that it was a time when any Joe Blow could order competition parts to build a car that pretty well matched what the professional guys had....and many did. Built with flared fenders for wider tires, stock brakes and slightly modified suspension, stripped interiors, some special engine parts to increase compression and provide more air/fuel induction with twin plugs and cams that complimented, these cars were found thoughout the world in all types of competition.

    Pete, the idea of a more modern sleeper version is intriguing, but the 964 fulfills that itch for me. The appealing character of these early cars lies in their small displacement high revving engines and the no-nonsense somewhat primitive features. Not to knock the guy who wants to mix modern features to make them more year round enjoyable, I just see them as special event cars...either a track/road event or a 2-3 hour rip through back country twisting roads like your special test circuit offers.

    Here is a picture taken at Leguna Seca in the day showing an ST flared car which seems to fit my vision of that privateer. I don't know whose car this was, but I like what it seems to represent.

    If any of you are going this route, with your engine plans, I have a set of factory, hi-butterfly velocity stacks. ................................Five are in very good shape...One has a sizable chip that I'm attempting to repair. Contact me if there is any interest.

    Gib,
    I think a LY ST will be a worthy build for you...especialy with your talents. OK...you know I'm predjudiced on Light Yellow racers.
    My advice is to do it the way you have always wanted to do it. I did my LY '73S racer over 25 years ago the way I wanted and I've never regretted it.
    Looking forward to seeing your progress.
    Rich
