That is one sexy contradiction!
Ben Norton Jun 30, 2012
Hovie did you say no brakes? They have 6 pots up front. I'd say they have plenty of braking ability
Vincent Butler Jun 29, 2012
Yeah I will., and Ty for that.
Aaron Cartwright Jun 29, 2012
@august lol ya its what we do! We take German strussle and make apple pie!
Aaron Cartwright Jun 29, 2012
Be carefull man! Ya I don't push it much on public roads anymore, many negative consequences. Ya that TL is a great car, it's won a championship or two for Acura
Vincent Butler Jun 29, 2012
On the road, Ty Aaron, I do love my car, it's just time for a new one. Only wish Acura Kept the 3gen TL and converted to AWD, then that car would be just Perfect. But I guess they want something new every 4-5 years. 3rd gen has been the best
Vincent Butler Jun 29, 2012
It took me over 2 years to find my Visual line on that mountain. I had a few scary moments, almost sliding off the mountain, 1-5thousand feet drop to my death lol. Can't help the road being clear every time. A couple rocks weighting over 50pounds
Aaron Cartwright Jun 29, 2012
@vincent ya I'm aware of the fact that having driven that road couple times a day for a few years may give you an advantage, and driver skill I believe I mentioned before. You got a nice car there!
John M Wilkins Jr Jun 29, 2012
You might be a redneck......... If your Porsche has a Chevy LS7 crammed in the boot
Mark Reider Jun 29, 2012
NASCAR! To boring for me. Formula 1 or GT racing is where it's at. The TT races on the Isle of Man are my favorite. All kinds of vehicles, driving on regular roads, through little towns at insane speeds.
Jon Dustin House Jun 29, 2012
And Matt White, I am very aware what cams are. My point was the sound was wrong for the car. I agree with you though, some people are idiots... or trolls.
Colby Church Jun 29, 2012
@Vincent NASCAR is badass once you get interested. Learn the drivers and see who's personality you like best, pull for him and watch the drama unfold at 200mph. It's a really great sport once you accept it for all it's uniqueness. Acquired taste. :)
Vincent Butler Jun 29, 2012
I'm just in love with the fortune, I want that so badly. Hopefully ill get a buyer soon
Vincent Butler Jun 29, 2012
Also Aaron it all depends on the driver and Also how well you know that road. I've heard of kind mountain. I smash through LA Forrest, 3times a week. In my 0& TL'S. I still haven't sold it yet. When I do I'm get getting 3rd gen rx7 with 2jz swap
Vincent Butler Jun 29, 2012
@Hovie Watch Jeff Dunham NASCAR Joke Lmfao. Im sorry but that shit bores me, the only way I'll watch it. If I smoked some good Kush or wasted. Lol
Aaron Cartwright Jun 29, 2012
@andrew yup that's why I want one, some people don't understand that though.
Noah Gavurin Jun 29, 2012
it sounds like its choking :(
Andrew Nissley Jun 29, 2012
Badass Porsche!! @Aaron miatas are awesome!! Basically a cheap street legal go kart, and reliable
Aaron Cartwright Jun 29, 2012
Ya I had an old 72 240z for my track car, that thing was amazing! So light and with the built motor, crazy fast! One of the best handling cars I've driven. It died though : ( Don't laugh, but I think my next one will be a miata, cheep and fun!
Patrick Schalk Jun 29, 2012
Yeah if were gonna build something to actually race and be track focused it'd be an S2K or maybe an STi
Aaron Cartwright Jun 29, 2012
@patrick Nice, I know they are fun cars, I have lots of respect for muscle cars and LS motors. They are great for what they are, just like small light cars are great for what they are. verry different but both a lot of fun!
Patrick Schalk Jun 29, 2012
Yeah I get at least 26mpgs on the highway. My car isn't built to be too serious. Just a lot of fun to drive. T tops make it even better too
Aaron Cartwright Jun 29, 2012
@trent can't argue with that!
Trent Bourgeois Jun 29, 2012
@Patrick, I know where you are coming from. It's okay, we can laugh all day with our torque running 80 mph at 1700 rpms and 30+mpg.
Aaron Cartwright Jun 29, 2012
@mark yup my point exactly, hartly is the company that makes those busa v8s.
Mark Reider Jun 28, 2012
An LS motor in an Atom, that's stupid. For one, it wouldn't fit. Two, the 3.0L that's in it, is made from 2 Hayabusa motors and it weights about 1/4 the weight of a 4 cylinder car engine. Don't mess with perfection, 0-60 in 2.3-2.5 secs.
Aaron Cartwright Jun 28, 2012
these roads are mostly corners, with very short straights, so they favor a shorter wheelbase lighter car. Still those guys insisted too that there cars where well suited for such roads but found out that they aren't. Look up Kings Mountian rd inC.A
Aaron Cartwright Jun 28, 2012
@patric when compared to 1,900, I would,It's pretty amazing the difference between my entrance,mid corner and exit speeds are compared to a tricked out camero, there's a solid 20-35mph difference, depending on driver and setup of the camero or stang
Aaron Cartwright Jun 28, 2012
That being said I do believe LS motors are the best bang for your buck, in the right application and this is definatly the right application. I was lucky enough to ride in a 875hp v8 914 and it changed my perspective forever, theres nothing like it!
Patrick Schalk Jun 28, 2012
I wouldn't say 3500lbs is heavy
Aaron Cartwright Jun 28, 2012
@colby Ariel atom never used an LS motor they are runing a much smaller motor from Hartly, and the first one was built here in the states go check dpcars.net you'll see the atom there, and the much better smaller v8, and now back to the porsche.
Aaron Cartwright Jun 28, 2012
@patric, it's still a big heavy car and you could never keep up with a smaller lighter car in the twisties. I know I've ran my old 86 jetta against some pretty crazy cars, and never lost on these mountian roads I live neer. 1,900 pounds vs 3,500 lol
Justin Routh Jun 28, 2012
@Justin you are very mistaken in your first comment. It was quite ignorant with the redneck and banjo shit. Lol a southern accent does not mean that somebody is a redneck. that's a dumbass stereotype and shows nothing but ignorance
Justin Tucker Jun 28, 2012
Haha sorry man. Ya the s14 are great.
Abraham Mendoza Jun 28, 2012
I want a F body Z28.
Devin Babyn Jun 28, 2012
You bastard I want an S14
Tanton Stoneman Jun 28, 2012
Who the hell puts an LS7 in a 911?!?! Especially a classic 911!!!
Justin Tucker Jun 28, 2012
@ patrick. It is a very nice car. I like tht body style
Justin Tucker Jun 28, 2012
I love FI. Turbos are my thing. And yes I have tracked a vehicle. My 97 s14 240sx.
Patrick Schalk Jun 28, 2012
The car in my pic. 98 Z28 LS1 with a 6 speed manual. I have lots of suspension stuff done to it so it's not like a normal muscle car
Matt White Jun 28, 2012
Justin - Do you like NA or FI? Also have you ever tracked vehicles? An NA v8 is a very enjoyable engine to have at the track.
Justin Tucker Jun 28, 2012
Well yeah I know haha but what do you drive? I won't bag on you or anything
Patrick Schalk Jun 28, 2012
Haha well nevermind. A TT Gallardo is not a V6 or 4 cyl.
Justin Tucker Jun 28, 2012
What do you drive? I mean you may not believe it but i have drove an underground racing gallardo so I have drove fast cars before
Patrick Schalk Jun 28, 2012
Justin I bet if you drove my car you'd think twice.
Justin Tucker Jun 28, 2012
I mean I know it's a good engine but I just don't like v8s. I like my inline 6 and some 4 cylinders. I know they might not produce as much torque but I'm just used to that
Colby Church Jun 28, 2012
The LS engines can be built up past 1,400 horsepower and run great. They were developed by Katech, look them up, they are geniuses at engine design. Bang for your buck, I can go get an LS1 for 3k now. That's 350hp to put in whatever I wish.
Colby Church Jun 28, 2012
@Justin Haha, dude, wanna know why everyone puts LS engines in everything from the Ariel Atom to the Hennessey Venom GT? Because its the best engine on the road. There is no comparison for power and reliability. And btw, V8s are the best. :)
Matt Piccolo Jun 28, 2012
No this is a disgrace to 911's, they're known for their flat 6's
Aaron Cartwright Jun 28, 2012
Nothing like buying parts for your 911 at O'rielys, and if the motor really is lighter than the original it's a win win! Cheap easy to maintain and pretty fast, just wish this story was about a 914!
Justin Tucker Jun 28, 2012
You make a good point. Porsches are expensive to maintain. I see where you guys are coming from though. I just still think its dumb
Abraham Mendoza Jun 28, 2012
I bet the original engine was expensive to maintain and harder to maintain as well. When you put more logic into, I guess it makes more sense.
Justin Tucker Jun 28, 2012
I actually am calm. And he should have done the original engine
Aaron Cartwright Jun 28, 2012
@patrick go check out harltey v8s they have 3 liter turbo thats right around 200 pounds and make almost 1000hp, granted I think the torque is only 500lb still pretty awesome little engine
Patrick Schalk Jun 28, 2012
Justin, what of it didn't have an engine in it when the guy bought it? You don't know any back story to this. Calm down.
Justin Tucker Jun 28, 2012
In a Porsche....to me that destroys the Porsche. And I'm not defending anything, I just don't care so it's pretty pointless to argue with me
Justin Tucker Jun 28, 2012
I'm actually pretty smart, but stubborn. I just make stupid choices. And I'm one for original engines, seeing what u can get outa them before the bust. I'm just sick of people LS swapping the shit out of everything. I'm not hating the LS is just why
Tin Nguyen Jun 28, 2012
It sounds like one of those boats on the Mekong river.
Brady Fereday Jun 28, 2012
Justin if you didn't care what people thought about you your wouldn't try to defend your opinion just saying lol
Jason Ofhorrormoviefame Jun 28, 2012
Better. Name one statistic that says otherwise. Lighter, faster, better MPG (look it up...), more torque, etc. Name one real indisputable fact that makes this car worse than the original. Debating opinions is pretty pointless...
Patrick Schalk Jun 28, 2012
It was Justin. You're about as sharp as a wooden spoon.
Abraham Mendoza Jun 28, 2012
That's probably the stupidest thing I've ever heard anybody say.
Patrick Schalk Jun 28, 2012
Hahahahaha Justin is so funny. Tell another joke Justin.
Justin Tucker Jun 28, 2012
*shouldnt have them
Justin Tucker Jun 28, 2012
The stupid ass rednecks where most likely like " weeeel it has this shitty ass *spits tobacco* ger-man engineen so leet but an v8 in it!" *banjo starts playing*. This is the dumbest thing iv ever seen. I don't care how good the engine is, I'm sick of people putting LS, let along another v8 in cars that should have them!
Matt White Jun 28, 2012
& Jon - learn what a cam is. I swear some people are complete idiots.
Manuel Pulgarin Jun 28, 2012
nice engine. good job
Clint Edwards Jun 28, 2012
@Patrick that is without a doubt the greatest description I've ever heard
Dan duzenski Jun 28, 2012
That car is sick. Id use that for my daily too.
Jon Dustin House Jun 28, 2012
It's like putting a fart pipe on a Corvette. It just shouldn't sound like that! It would be a much better vehicle if it didn't sound like that idling. Could have been a very good sleeper car.
Devin Babyn Jun 28, 2012
Mikey's gonna be so stoked when he sees this
Patrick Schalk Jun 28, 2012
They are usually raspy and sound like a homeless man defecating into a tin can with explosive diarrhea. This LS7 did it a favor.
Byakka Hirakawa Jun 28, 2012
Porches should not gargle
Michael Davidson Jun 28, 2012
I would love to have a car that sounds like that, and I'm sure it sounds a million times better when he revs it up.
Justin Routh Jun 28, 2012
Sure maybe you shouldnt do this to a 911 but it sounds like heaven and probably goes like hell. Props to the guy that built it
Yasser Abdelhalim Jun 28, 2012
What's the name if this vid?
Clint Edwards Jun 28, 2012
Those hushpowers almost always sound good. Very cool car
Brian Micinski Jun 28, 2012
Ewwww. Looks nice but doesn't sound right.
Trent Bourgeois Jun 28, 2012
But mom, that doesn't sound like a turbo! I won't be racing any porches in south carolina now.
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Jun 28, 2012
@eric- So puttin a flat six in a.... C4 corvette is cool then huh
Eric Michalak Jun 28, 2012
That is cool. Everyone on here saying it is sacrilege needs to chill out. It's just a car and the guy who owns it (and clearly has some serious mechanical skills) can do whatever he wants.
Matt Martir Jun 28, 2012
Sickest thing i have seen in a VERY long time. I couldnt imagine how much fab work had to be done. Better yet, what made him think "ls7 in a 911" sounds fun, i think id be kind of scared to drive it. Not so much traction, but stability under accel?
Patrick Schalk Jun 28, 2012
Not one that has that much power and torque
Dylan Bruder Jun 28, 2012
Sweet love the ls7
Aaron Cartwright Jun 28, 2012
Ya it might be a light engine for an LS but it's not a light motor lol I've seen light v8s and they barley crack 200 pounds
Patrick Schalk Jun 28, 2012
I love how everyone thinks the engine weighs more than the car
Dillon Magee Jun 28, 2012
The initial start up sounds godly.
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Jun 28, 2012
If u close your eyes it sounds like a beastly vette. Then u open your eyes and WtF!!!!! This is wrong man just plain ol wrong
Aaron Cartwright Jun 28, 2012
If your going to put a v8 in a Porsche you put it in a 914, at least then you have a car that is fast and still corners amazingly well, cause it doesn't throw off the balance of the car. I've seen one with a 928. Turbo v8, with 1002hp! Was bad ass!!
Preston Ming Jun 28, 2012
that's just disgusting..good and bad..it sounds amazing and I bet that thing can go..the bad is that it shouldn't have been a Porsche...to each his own though
Petre Draghici Jun 28, 2012
And it sounds horrible. The original sound is much better.
Petre Draghici Jun 28, 2012
They tortured the car. The 911 is famous for its flat-six.
Description: For others, like the stereotypical redneck sounding southern gent here, the brilliant 3.3-liter flat-six wasn't quite up to the job so was replaced with an LS7 V8. This act of heresy should argua...

Granted ours aren't stock motors... I'm honestly not sure if you can
Ben Norton Jun 30, 2012
Bob I wouldn't. All of our LS motors get pretty hot
Vincent Butler Jun 29, 2012
I6, stick it original IMO
Jay Mauran Jun 29, 2012
Sounds SO good! I had to come back again today just to hear it!
Bob Turefannt Jun 29, 2012
Can you air cool that?
Michael Beach Jun 28, 2012
Oh an LS swap, how original.
Jason Ofhorrormoviefame Jun 28, 2012
Lighter, more power, more torque, better sound, cheaper replacement parts... What logical reason would somebody have NOT to like this other than some unjustified "it's not tradition" bs?? Nice work!
Chris Gaines Jun 28, 2012
@ Dustin agreed, the engines in the wrong place anyway. a lighter motor is an improvement!
Lee Cascio Jun 28, 2012
This is awesome how can you hate on something like this. One great car plus another great engine combined, me Gusta. If you put a K20 in a lambo I might be pissed though.
Byakka Hirakawa Jun 28, 2012
Takes away from wat the car is If the flat 6 is not enuff Turbo it
Brady Fereday Jun 28, 2012
I know way off subject but I saw a 350z with a power stroke motor in it 0_0 that makes no sense to me that motor has got to weigh at least 1.5 times more or maybe more than the VQ this swap in the porsche makes sense to me opt for the lighter motor
Corey Alan Kelley Jun 28, 2012
When you guys have your own Porsches you can put whatever engine you want in it Put the LS in it!
Scott Gracey Jun 28, 2012
Yeah I'd keep the flat 6 in the Porsche as well, this makes about as much sense as putting a flat 6 in a corvette, certain engines just shouldn't go in certain cars haha
Nick Sti Jun 28, 2012
Boxer engines have soul. Unless the car was rear ended, this shouldnt happen
Reid Huff Jun 28, 2012
I would rather have the flat 6
Davey Edwards Jun 28, 2012
I love this engine. The LS9 has too much power to be practical but 505 is perfect
Abraham Mendoza Jun 28, 2012
Ha, I know someone on here had this idea.
Justin Routh Jun 28, 2012
I love how light the LS engines are.
