I bought a basket case 74 911 Targa, so I new it was going to need a rebuild. A good quality rebuild on a 2.7 makes it as reliable any any other motor. You just need to make sure the weaknesses are addressed and it's a great time to do upgrades. For me the machine shop bill was one of the biggest expenses, but this will address a lot of the problem areas. Don't scrimp on the machine shop work. I used German Precision in San Jose, beautiful work. Upgrades included RS pistons and cylinders, Carrera oil fed tensioners, 3.0 fuel distributer from a euro car and installed a oil pump from a 3.2. All told I'm into the motor for $6400 and I did the work. I wanted to keep my car completely original, so that's why I went this route.
