911 (996) All Aluminum LS Series V-8 Conversion

After observing a high numbers of engine related failures to later 911's (996), Renegade Hybrids developed an LS V8 conversion kit and made the installation look like it was factory-born! Imagine a new, 6.2L, all aluminum LS3 stuffed perfectly in the back of a young 911? Now that sounds pretty exciting!

Critics, Purists and Enthusiasts agree, the Renegade Hybrids 996 V8 conversion just makes perfect sense. Why? Let's look at the facts together:

The flat-6 Carrera engine from the 996, and an LS series all aluminum V8, weigh almost exactly the same. The 996 produced horse power in the upper 200's, yet a new, entry-level GM LS-3 engine, starts in the mid 400's which is higher horse power than a twin turbo! The twin-turbo factory engine weighs 200lbs. more than the LS and costs 3 times as much! The stock cooling system found in the 996 will support the V8 using our conversion kit! The stock fuel system found in the 996 will support the V8 using our conversion parts! The stock 6 speed transaxle will handle the LS V8 torque up to 500HP with minimal abuse. The gauges can be converted to work with your V8. Both the power steering and water pump are now electric increasing HP and efficiency! $19 oil changes and there is ample room to service the engine! 50 state smog legal emissions options while still enhancing performance! And finally, much greater reliability and performance!
