    Well, first time I have posted in this forum :wavey:

    I currently drive a stock 1997 Audi A4 (2.8 quattro, but not the 5 valve version :wtc: ) But I have decided that I love the way that 944s look. Could somebody break down what I can expect to pay for each version? and where I can find ones for sale. Thanks.

    I have a 944 turbo (951)
    They are awesome cars, you can gain around 45hp for less than a PS3. The 944turbo S had about 30 more hp than the standard turbo and was the fastest porsche when it was out.

    Things to look for:
    Timing belt - interference engines so check that shit
    Clutch - expensive to replace, estimated removal/install time is over 24 hours of labor
    suspension - if you are not tracking the car stay away from the M030 suspension options keep to the adjustable konis
