    You can also buy complete running engines (for quite a bit more I imagine) from guys like Craig Smith in Morro Bay.

    Impressive tech with modern injection, good old Webbers are what I went with... looking forward to seeing your finished ride, Chris!

    Yes, basic kits start at about $10K, but with the required machine work and induction figure $15-18,000.
    Dean's backlog is something like two years if you have him build it, so be patient.

    I believe the wait is worth it. We hope to have one at RRIV if anyone wants to see it in the metal. (it's for my 356)

    It does sound awesome and obviously has plenty of power. I'm not 100% sure, but doesn't an early 911 engine weigh about 140kgs? What does one of these engines weigh?

    Not sure yet. We weighed the stock car. 2087 lbs. I don't have the exact corner numbers with me at the moment. Front corners are in the 400's, rears in the 500's. We will weigh the car again with the new engine and account for parts taken off or added.

    Better put the engine carrier the other way round.
