A bone stock 930 can handle 1.0bar IF the intercooler has been changed out to an oversized unit AND the octane of the fuel is sufficient. You also need a reliable boost gauge. The stock unit is not that accurate.

The deal is that you say that you don't know what you have so it is prudent to leave it at stock boost until you do know what you have. That's all.

You don't need a modified or Euro fuel head to run 1.0bar of boost on a stock or slightly modified engine with a stock C/R. You need proper A/F ratios. (A euro head is black while a US head is silver in color). The stock fuel head will support 400HP so you have some room there.
