With an engine-less Porsche 911 project car on his hands, Bob Radke made a brave (or perhaps sacrilegious) choice.

If Radke had the factory engine he could swap it back without any trouble—but with 603 hp, more than 500 lb-ft of torque at 2000 rpm, and a tenacious bark, who would want to? Watch here for the more details on Radke’s wicked Corvette-powered 911.
