Good grief G-man!
Let me be that honest voice in your head and save you some time and money?
Just build the engine with 8.1/1 pistons and add a nice little turbo. Keep your 915 and boost to .7bar. Love it like that and done worry about going higher. Reason is that with that you’ll outrun nearly every na engine 911 short of a gt3rs. Honestly. And low boost keeps the 915 in check and the budget calm. Keep it narrow body and you’ll have the most kickass driver you could ever hope for. It’ll outrun Corvettes up to c5 or is it c6? Absolute blast!!
Sometimes I wish I could go back. I’m too far down the road and I don’t quite enjoy as much as I used too. You’ll never be happy with an NA engine unless you pay $50k and then you’ll be unhappy with that. Turbo it and have fun driving and killing everything. My car was amg sls fast before.
0-155 in a blink. What fun. I’d do that build again every time.
