15k: V8 Swap: 1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S w/ Chevy LS1 V8

From 1987-1988 the baddest Porsche 944 you could buy was the Turbo S that was powered by a 194 horsepower version of the 2.5 liter turbocharged inline four.  The resulting car was almost equal to the base 911 in speed and handling…which is still slow compared to many modern cars today, unless you turn up the volume.  Find this 1988 Porsche 944 turbo S with a Chevy LS1 V8 swap for sale in Cherry Hill, NJ for $15,500 via pelicanparts.com forums.  Tip from Dan G.

This 944 has had its guts stripped out and is powered by a 5.7 liter V8 from a Camaro donor car that now puts out 380 horsepower to the pavement.  It should be good enough to keep up with most anything on the road and look cool in the process.  Not bad for $15k.
