It’s been a couple of months now, so i guess it’s time to announce that for those who didn’t know, Project944 has left the building. I’ve done what i could and with a final ECU remap after acquiring a link-up cable from Microtech Australia, she was running sweet as a peach with some fruity upshift […]Read more "Project 944: Time to say goodbye"
What does one do when you have the keys to a recently refurbished and rather pretty Porsche 944 Turbo but nowhere to go? You head out, and take pictures. She isn’t perfect, but the best of us aren’t either. Long live the transaxle.Read more "Project 944 Turbo Redux"
With just a windshield and some final mechanical bits to sort out, i think we can finally say that Project944 is almost done. While no means perfect, i think we’ve done a pretty good job rescuing this Porsche from the scrap heap it came from. In the mean time, here are some pictures of our […]Read more "Project 944: All About That Plaid, ‘Bout That Plaid"
It’s been a couple of weeks since Project 944’s back on the road and i’m happy to report, she still smells of burnt oil and exhaust gases and she still pops herself out of second gear every now and then. I did manage to bring the car out for breakfast with a couple of friends […]Read more "Project 944: Inner Workings"
It has been a while since i last updated about Project 944 and truth be told, i’ve been pretty hesitant to post any updates. This project has been ongoing for over a year and although i’m happy to announce the car is finally road legal, it has not exactly been a smooth ride so far. […]Read more "Project 944: A New Day"
It’s been quite a while since i last updated this blog on Project944. Truth be told, pretty much nothing was done for the past few weeks as we were awaiting another shipment of parts to arrive from the States. This time, bearings, synchros, bushings and all sorts of paraphernalia pertaining to a gearbox and differential […]Read more "PROJECT 944: The Final Stretch?"
With just some final touchups to go, Project 944’s L37W paintwork is finally complete! Hopefully by the time you read this, it should be back at R2D to undergo final mechanical work for the rear subframe, gearbox and differential. L37W’s not looking too bad! Throwing up a slightly different shade of color at various angles, […]Read more "PROJECT 944: L37W EQUIPPED"
Coming back from all our side quests exploring other 944s in Singapore, it’s already the tail end of November, which means, a year has pretty much gone by since we’ve bought the car. Our projected budget went bust many months ago and our projected timeline has also (as you can see) been binned. So a […]Read more "Project 944: One year on"
As mentioned in a previous posting, 944s in Singapore are incredibly scarce so stumbling upon one even in a scrapyard is nothing something that happens everyday. Which makes seeing these two here rather heartbreaking. Now i’d have to warn you, the following pictures might be disturbing to some readers. Still with me? Here we go… […]Read more "Project 944: Research and contemplation"
Due to work commitments, i didn’t get to visit the bodyshop the past weekend to look at our car’s progress. But i guess in a way, it’s nice to have a bit of a break too perhaps? While we might have missed out on seeing our car’s build, i did manage to take a look […]Read more "Project 944: Research and admiration"
