Project Outcast Begins..

This project started because the owner of the 996 Porsche C4S came to us with a blown engine. It turned out that the cylinder walls were scratched badly, which caused knocking in the engine. The only way to get this car back on the road would be to rebuild the stock engine.The problem is that no one likes stock! Where others saw a problem, we saw an opportunity. We presented the options to the owner of a stock rebuild, or doing a complete LS engine swap. We had been in communication with a company in Las Vegas called Renegade Hybrids, who specializes in LS swap conversion kits for a variety of older generation Porsche vehicle. There are a few advantages of doing an LS engine swap vs. a rebuild.

Advantages:

  • more hp, more torque
  • similar costs
  • GM factory warranty for the engine
  • cheaper maintenance
  • retains stock transmission
  • increased reliability
  • its a no brainer!

So after various discussions with the owner, he decided to go ahead with this project. So we ordered a 485hp version of the 6.2L LS3 in crate engine form, and ordered the necessary conversion parts from Renegade Hybrids. After that, it was just a waiting game for the parts to arrive!
