911 RS - 3.6L DME / G50 SBH (1972)

This '72 911 was a wreck when it showed up on a trailer towed in from San Diego. The customer wanted to have a car with super performance, and the comfort of A/C. The 1995 Porsche 993 3.6L engine was selected for installation in this project car.
To fit this engine in this older Porsche 911 chassis, several modifications are required, the dash and power brake sheet metal work was the most intensive (see detail in photos). We have installed the wide variety of our special 3.6L DME engine conversion parts. For this project we installed the Porsche G-50 type transmission converted to SBH (short bell housing) configuration. This modification required our specially fabricated mount with other conversion specific parts and hardware. The clutch system is the 240mm Centerforce DF255255 which offers high clampload with minimal increase in pedal effort. The flywheel is our 9.5 Lbs CNC machined billet steel unit which features all of the necessary timing reference features for the 3.6L DME engine coupled to the SBH G-50. Because the car will utilize the 993 type air conditioning system, we cut and removed the older style 911 dash support. We then grafted in the new type 993 dash which has the updated air ventilation features. The seats chosen are Corbeau XL Sport version which required specialty milled brackets. We then ordered and installed all new interior leather and lining materials.

For this project we used the Porsche G50 transmission from the 1987-1989 Porsche 911 cars. For the G50 transmission to fit in the chassis, it was first converted to short bell housing configuration. Because this is an earlier chassis, it was necessary to clearance the torsion tube assembly and use our adjustable transmission mount. The power plant is the larger displacement 3.6L engine from the 1995 Porsche 993 cars. All the engine and transmission conversion parts are pre-fitted and installed for an easy installation into the car.
