I'm biased with a Protomotive rig, BUT ....

I too had a Carrera (87) and was considering "dropping in" a trubo, or swapping to a turbo motor (3.0 liter), for more power.

Obviously, once you have more power, you need more brakes, a better suspension to handle the power, wider wheels/tires/etc ....

I started looking at 930's instead. I always loved the wider rear ends anyways.

I just mention this because it's easy to invest $ in something cool now, and it's important to look down the road at what you really want/need it for later.

Just my $.02

Good luck!
