I started w/ an M64/21 ROW vram, tore it down to the crank and rebuilt w/ all RS pieces, I got a fabulous deal on most of the parts w/ made it affordable, the only thing missing is the mg. lower manifolds and injector blocks(Steve Timmins beat me to them and he is using them in his car)

There are some non Porsche pieces like Raceware rod bolts, custom chip, Webcam RS hyd. cams

The cylinder spiggots needed machining

cyl heads needed welding for strength

backdated 964 cam drives were needed, stronger competition chains, US phosphoous-bronze valve guides,

rotating assembly was balanced, easy to do given the light wt. of the recipricating components, &#177 0.5g

Not counting the base engine the tab was ~$9k parts and labor
