Well the water is satill a bit murky but I'm going to jump.

Tomorrow I'm going to talk to a local shop that used to run 917's at sebring and daytona. 45 years of porsche builing. Ralph's in Reisterstown md. His estimate is $12-15K and 3-4 weeks turnaround (machine shop willing)

Also got an emailed estimate from Paul Weir. He wanted $9586 not including shipping the car to him. a few months turn around time.

Both use raceware head studs and rod bolts and a mix of OEM/wurth fasteners. Both use all NEW hard parts.

There is another thing. Paul weir warranty 2yr/24k miles
Ralph's 3yr/36k mile warranty.

Now, I'm in Maryland, Weir is in Washington state. If something came up I can do the 40min drive to Ralph's shop.

Any suggestions?
79 930..... among other fine German cars.
