    JUNE TECH SESSION: Maintaining 944/968 cars and modifying for street, DE and race

    Date: June 21, 2018, 6:00-9:00pm

    Venue: Workshop of a UCR 944 enthusiast located in the Carlisle/Freelton area, north of Hamilton, South of 401.  Private residence and the exact address will be disclosed to those who register.

    Once Porsche enthusiasm strikes there’s no telling where it will lead.   Our host for this tech session is a 944 enthusiast with lots of experience of home maintenance, modification and restoration of 944 cars (which applies equally to 968) for road, DE and race use.   He will have four of his 944 cars on hand to demonstrate what can be done by an enthusiastic (and brave?) owner:

    • A 944 street car with restored interior – dash, carpets, seats, lights
    • A 944 Turbo Outlaw street/DE car with mods including engine and suspension
    • A 944 cheap-and-cheerful DE/race car, lightened
    • A 944 Cup race car, showing a low-cost alternative to going the GT3/spec-Cayman route 

    A partially-disassembled 2.5 NA engine on a stand will be a focus for reviewing typical engine maintenance and repair work.   Replacement of belts, rollers, seals; noisy lifters, DME, idle air controller – all the things that can be done to keep the engine running great.   And review of good online information sources and parts sources.

    A unique opportunity to get up close and personal with someone who has actually done and knows all about all those maintenance jobs on these classic sports cars to keep them looking great and running great.   Registration is at
