Hi, that is a great idea, I have created a Turbo specific forum.
You can join in the discussion at
Thanks for letting us know about your great lapping video.
We put it up on the UCR Facebook page as well.
If anyone else has lapping videos be sure to let us know.
Seeing other members keeps us going until we can get back out on the track in the spring!
Thanks guys. Even better was that the three podium drivers were not only Canadian but UCR DE program graduates. That says a lot for our DE program.
Fantastic job guys! Sounds like Team Comat was burning up the track.
Don’t forget who your friends are when you’re rich and famous…..lol.
Even better that there were 3 Canadians on the podium!
fantastic tyler ! big congratulations !
and a hearty congrats to dear “old” dad too !
well done guys.
Congrats!!!!!Good job and good luck with Sponsors for next year!Sounds like you have a winning team.
Kudos to the Director and Producer, Tamir Moscovici, a member with our Region.
Great video. Thanks for posting.Cheers,
Unfortunately we are unable to support fax in ballots. The fax receiving capability is out of order.
Therefore, please do not send your votes via fax. Vote online, or scan your ballot and email it to:

Thank you for your patience and apologies for the inconvenience.
The PDF version has no check boxes (apparently this is isolated and could be for Mac users only) so are members supposed to circle their choices for President and up to five (5) Directors?
On the online form, where there are multiple choices (President & Directors) you can click and un-click at will, but you can’t un-click any single candidate choice once you have made your selection. So to change your mind before submitting the ballot you will just have to “re-load” the page.
Good luck to all the candidates.
Hi Guys, thanks for the replies and support.
When the turbo failed I do not believe it was “explosive” – the car was driven home and then put in the barn – I dont believe there would be any pieces inside the cylinders.
The timing belt is properly in place – the camshaft does move slightly indicating that the problem is with the main crankshaft. I have removed the alternator/water pump belt, and there is no A/C compressor.
Removing the oil pan sounds like the next step – does anyone know if this is possible?
A reply from a different forum goes as follows:
“While it is a possibility that you have a seized engine, you first need to determine the cause of the engine not rotating. I would suggest that before you start to dismantle things you decouple the transaxle from the drive shaft (by removing the bolts on the coupler and sliding the coupler towards the transaxle) to see if that frees up the engine. If that doesn’t, then there is still a possibility that either the clutch or the starter is locking the flywheel (and keeping the crankshaft from turning). If that is not the case, then it looks like removing the engine in order to diagnose what is keeping the crank from turning. Remove the engine and place it on an engine stand, then start removing parts until the crankshaft will turn. The last thing you remove before the crankshaft frees up will have been the cause of the seizure.”
The starter has been removed. I dont understand how the clutch could jam the flywheel – can anyone shed any light on this?
I agree with Andy. Have you checked to see if the timing belt is properly in place? You could also eliminate the alternator and A/C compressor by removing those belts and try to turn it. If you did use a 924 turbo engine temporarily, the addition of your Carrera intercooler and a modest boost increase would give you better than than stock 924 turbo performance.
You have a very special car, I hope you can find a way to fully repair the damage.
I would love to see it some day.
A very limited production model such as yours deserves to be repaired correctly, especially if it has the original engine.
I can certainly relate to budget concerns, so if a full engine rebuild isn’t on your Bank Managers agenda right now, why not try to find a regular 924 Turbo engine so at least you can get the car mobile again.
Just a quick browse found this one on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/73-PORSCHE-TURBO-ENGINE-5-SPEED-MANUAL-TRANSMISSION-1982-924-/320992538823?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item4abca570c7&vxp=mtr
If the clutch were seized, you wouldn’t be able to engage/disengage the transmission as you describe in your “highway test”.
When the Turbo failed did any bits get loose and get blown into the cylinders? That might cause pistons to jam.
As this stage you are into an engine stripdown anyway, even if you did get the engine to turn over. Obviously something is seriously wrong and even if the pistons or bearings did free up enough to allow the engine to turn over there would likely be damage to the bores or crank.
I would start by removing the cylinder head which might give you a better idea of what has happened. If nothing obvious is found the next step is to drop the oil pan (not sure if this can be done in-situ) and remove the crank bearing caps to see if the pistons free up or the crank will turn.
Steve is the best!
