You don't need the fuel head mod until the engine goes past the 350whp level. It will do nothing for you but waste gas on a moderately modded engine. It is always a good idea to verify your A/F ratios throughout the range and adjust if necessary.

Don't dismiss SC cams so easily. Combined with the right turbo and tuning they are still one of the best cams available for a street 930. I know of back-to-back testing using SC, SC330, Web, 964, and ANDIAL cams on the same engine. The SC cams won the best driveability/power compromise with 400whp and 1.0bar @2600rpm.
The best turbo? On that same test it was the K27S, again 1.0bar @ 2600rpm with 375whp.

My stock waste gate has Zerro boost creep. It jumps to 0.7bar and sticks like glue. Header design plays into this. The stock Euro exchangers use a very nice angle off the main pipe to the W/G branch. Aftermarket headers often compromise that angle and it becomes a "T" when it should be a "y" or "Y".
