You have to find the correct timing mark on the flywheel. Take the cover off of the bottom of the bell housing and turn the flywheel over with a large screw driver. Taking out the sparking bolts helps. Use a bright shop light. When you find the OT mark rub chaulk into it.

Check your belt timing including the balance belt. You could have a pulley on 170 degrees out and get some high rpm vibrations.

NOT a 'real' Porsche -- Its Better!!!!
When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?
