• Then it wouldn't be an IROC.

      It would be an IBROKE

    • or maybe I-ROLL….?

      As in, "I have to roll it, because it don't run."

      (…something about the multi-port fuel injection on the car next to it sending EMPs to disrupt the points on the distributor cap…or, perhaps just bad love between a big heavy Chevy and a German Tranny…)

    • I took my 944 off-roading once.

      Alcohol and a very cute co-worker may have been involved.

      Only did it once. My mechanic almost made me a Castrato when I brought it in (and I'm not talking use of oil)

  • I'm trying to like this from a standpoint of the sum of its parts are attractive, however enough niggling points are making hard to like. The TPI engine I think is a poor match, as it's a tremendous low rpm twister where the stock motor is a spinner. I think the transmission gearing is not going to be fun to drive except to melt tires from off the line. The TPI intake also infringes onto the frame/engine bay cross bar as it's missing. Should run from the fender nubs with two holes left to right, where the air cleaner meets the throttle body. This bar is so important the workshop manual says not to lift the car without it installed. I have seen reports where guys have cracked the windshield doing that. On the flip, if the pictures are recent, most of the interior is actually there, and the missing pieces could be put back reasonably cheap by cruising forums. The paint looks good, etc. Last thoughts, not the best set up for a track car with a low revving motor and being a sunroof car. Most track set up 928's will be non sunroof or the sunroof frame/roof cut out and a panel welded in, as the sunroof takes up a large amount of head room. A helmet in a sunroof 928 means a reclining seating position if you're taller than 5 ft. 7 inches.
