Tech Event at Chavis Performance Engineering

Chavis Performance Engineering

About this event

PCA Chesapeake Members ONLY

Our next Tech Event will be held at Chavis Performance Engineering.  Some people struggle if they want to buy a Corvette or a Porsche. Some people struggle with how to solve the bore scoring or IMS problems with their M96 or M97 engines which are found in 996 and early 997 models respectively. Being old hotrodders, Moose and Squirrel are always on the lookout for new ways to fix problems and enhance your experience with your Porsche. From time to time, we  attempt to broaden the Porsche horizon. Some ides that we will present may be an anathema to some.  This may be our biggest one yet. Watch us pull a rabbit out of our hat. Or is that stuff a 525 HP V8 crate motor into our hat? 

Tyler Chavis, the mastermind behind Chavis Performance Engineering,  will be showcasing a not so common alternative to the M96/7 engine failure issue.  Tyler will talk about how to fit an LS (Chevrolet V8) engine into a Porsche. You will have an opportunity to hear about the conversion kits he has developed for this change.  He will speak about how it connects to the transaxle and how he has developed a plug and play solution to wiring it all together. Learn how all of this impacts the weight distribution, car handling and engine reliability. To get your juices flowing listen to one example of the end result here on Facebook.
