It's finally (almost) finished! LS swapped 997 converted S

I don't know how to pictures up so I just made an album. I'll have an Entire good condition M030 suspension for sale if anyone is interested (shocks springs, sway bars). Looking for tail lights as well.

Chevy 4.8
Speed inc turbo 1.5 cam
Dual valve springs
LS9 injectors
Speed inc push rods
Summit trunion upgrade
Head stud upgrade
Twin turbos coming soon

Nice
What did you use for the front end? Kit or modified OEM parts?

Very nice!
I'm not a fan of flat black paints, but it does look quite good!
I like the fender flares!
Any pictures of the engine?
Did you use a renegade kit?

I'm super happy with the flares too thanks!
Yep renegade kit all the way
There's a couple shots of the engine towards the end of the album. The site won't let me upload iPhone pictures.

Xtreme Motorcars made the kit. It's actually very nice compared to anything out there. Super thick fiberglass, fit is great.

Looking good.

I was thinking of doing the same thing to the shifter that you have done here



It looks like you have just added the bolt to the top of the short shift lever for the knob. How is the height like that? I was thinking about cutting down further and using a longer stainless bolt, (polished), as the bolt would be seen exiting a new momo leather piece.

Thanks man! I did add a bolt, it's about the same height right now as the stock shifter, but what's cool is that the bolt goes almost to the top of the knob do if I do a track day I can unscrew it and rise it about 2 inches (I will install a locknut though) I'm also making my own leather shift boot with stretchy material to hide the bolt.

I used a Silverado iron block engine and I plan on turboing it which means a heavier clutch ($800) but shooting maybe around 6-7000 minimum. If you have a good motor you can sell it for about 5k (which is what I did). The 997 conversion was about 4-5k maybe.

Boxsterado! I like that we should do a day at Blackhawk farms for a track day!
