These cars and their 915 gearboxes are a kick to c\drive even with only .4-.5 bar!
If you can keep them down with .3bar efi or .5 bar cis then you'd more than likely get lots more life between clutch or trans issues...
These engines seem to take the conversion quite well as long as the boost is kept under control. It's the 915 that's the issue. I too, am now hooked on boost. Before my conversion, I knew nothing about turbos much less driven a car with one.

BTW, nice looking splitter. Did you make that?
