Wink Question Re: 930 3.3 upgrades

Hi gang! Please comment on this engine.

I'm considering buying a 1976 930 with quite a few performance upgrades to develop as a track car. It has all the normal suspension upgrades etc.

The motor was replaced with a rebuilt 82 European 930 3.3 as follows. I don't know anything about the 3.3 or what combinations work. Any input would be appreciated. The motor only has a 6,000 miles on it but was rebuilt in 1991. The car been run twice a month and the price seems to be pretty cheap for the total package. But we all know that story.

Motor was totally rebuilt in 1991 by Galen Bridges, Inc. (I think they were in Georgia or at least the east coast) New pistons & cylinders, bearings, valves, rocker arms, etc.

-82 Euro 930 3.3 Liter
-911 SC Camshafts
-new K27 Turbo and rebuilt wastegate
-twin plug/crank fired electronic ignition
-adjustable Turbo boost knob in cockpit with gauge
-aftermarket intercooler w/intake and exhaust temp gauge in console
-microfueler and fuel management system
-Lemke racing oil cooler w/aeroquipfittings and steel braided lines
-modified 4 outlet muffler and straight pipe (no muffler) for racing.


Seller recalls the motor should be about 450 HP. The car took third place in the Walter Mitty in 1990 out of 35 cars with street tires? If anyone recalls the car. Color light green.

Thanks for any help! Steve
