I have a '80 Targa that I would like to convert to a Cab. I also have a Chevy 350 in place of my original boxer engine. The 350 is putting out about 350 ft-lb of torque that can move the 911 off the line very quickly. I am concerned about chassis flex with that much torque. My question is: 1. would a targa to cab. conversion be safe with so much power in back? 2. are there reinforcement points that I can stiffen to increase the rigidity of my chassis?

Thanks in advance.........Ki

LOL. Put your finger on the gap between the door and the rear fender, then have a buddy kneel on the rear bumper, you'll understand why I lol. The floors in these cars are the same from a Targa to Cab. they both are flexible flyers with the torque and wheight of a V8 I would think about stiffenting up you chassis
