Random CL find but looks like a good starting point for short money.

For $1000 that looks like a risk I might even take.  Start with fuel pressure and some belts, correct?

I think the 944 may be the new Bi-turbo.  A lot of them don’t run and have less than 100k miles.

In reply to spitfirebill :

My guess is a lot of second owners not doing timing or balance belts in time, or the dreaded #3 (EDIT #2) bearing.

You mean the #2 bearing?

In reply to markwemple :

yes. The #2 bearing that was spun in one of the two 924S's I had ;)

#3 being the one that usually fails in Subarus....which is what my other car is ;)

 

it's been a long day....
