I'm about to finish up a BMS which will allow me to use a stash of Li-Ion batteries, so naturally I want to make something to put these batteries to good use. An fun EV conversion seems like the perfect fit.
A little background on me: I hail more from the Electrical/Programming side of things, but I have some friends who can help me with some machining+welding.
I saw Arlo's DIY leaf inverter thread and decided I definitely want a leaf motor due to the power and low cost.
For a donor car I was planning to use a Porsche 944 as they are relatively light and cheap and have a pretty large engine compartment. Where I live, you can find people selling stripped down budget racing 944s with blown engines which probably would make great conversions.
For coupling a leaf motor I saw a couple of threads, one about clutch plates that had good fits on the output spline, and some detailing a machinable adapter for the net-gain bolt pattern. I'm thinking I want to retain the clutch for emergencies and if the leaf motor has rough starts.
TL;DR Question is could a semi-mechanically inclined guy mate a leaf engine to a 944 with some help from his friends?
(Budget's not a huge worry for me, free batteries + BMS, and cheap parts should keep the cost low)
Thanks, I hugely appreciate any help!
