1983 930 Rebuild - Cylinder Options
Hey 930 folks --
I am tearing down a 1983 930 for a bottom-end up rebuild. My intentions are to keep the engine as stock as possible. The only upgrades I want to consider are those that are considered necessary and are well accepted by the Porsche community, e.g., ARP rod bolts, ARP head studs, etc.
My question regards pros and cons between the stock 3.3 litre half-finned cylinders vs. another cylinder option such as 965 fully finned cylinders or 911 3.2 litre cylinders bored out to 97mm and replated or 3.4 litre upgrades. Does anyone have any thoughts on each of those options or some other suggestion?
'79 911SC Targa -- "BLUVUDU"
'83 930 Coupe -- "TURBAUX"
