Re: Chevy power
I'm on both the 928 and the Q lists. I had a timing belt change done on my
84 euro 928 just the other day. It was looking pretty loose. What cost
could I look forward to after a TB failure: $4000 + (according to my

Mark, you are just plain wrong here.
The Chevy V8 into 911is not only an outstanding cost saver, but assuming
same hp [let's say 350] from chev V8 vs. P-6, the torque on the V8 will be
much higher = better low end.
911 tranny from 72-86 is most likely the 915 transaxle, rated for up to
500hp. 930 trans rated for
up to 700. so, this works well also.
Resale value: Subject close to my heart:) Listen, resale means whatever
you can get for your car. Barring a buyer who just MUST have the car you
are driving, mods mean precious little in add-on resale. The dragon wagon
posted for sale here
sounds super, but, as claimed by the seller, no takers at what $21k?
Hard to hurt / help the resale value of an Audi with
80,000 plus miles on it. Sure, you can push it this
way or that of book, but, you prolly won't sell a $14k
car for $20+. If you can, good for you.
My hat is off to this whole LT-1 / 5 swap. I think it is
an outstanding match, especially when made to a
car that sells for what, sub $6k?
Btw, have known a number of 928s4 owners. You
want aftermarket power? So did they. Two words
of advice when shopping for it: Bend over.
Anxiously awaiting details on the swap!
