We subscribe to the notion an LSx swap makes every car more interesting… including Porsches. What can we say, we thoroughly enjoy blasphemous engine swaps!
With the ever common IMS bearing failure associated with non-turbocharged 996 models still haunting the platform today, many owners are looking for a different solution rather than just repairing the issue. And thanks to various companies now offering LSx swap components, this route has become the go-to for many performance oriented enthusiasts.
Clearly, Nick is among that crowd, and decided to take the plunge on fitting his 996 with an LS3 out back. With the bulk of the work out of the way, Nick brought her in to have Jeremy redesign/rebuild the engine cooling system, repair/improve the air conditioning system, and have the speed signal integrated to the Racepak dash.
With the mechanical work wrapped in the shop, Vlad dialed in the setup on the dyno via HP Tuners, resulting in 424.86whp & 408.14lbft! Overall, this is an insanely cool build, that we’re sure Nick is going to thoroughly enjoy.
