I drove my 930 and laid into the boost for the first time today with the HF2. Man, it's nice to feel the tires bust loose again! When my 930 was stock, after a few years of driving it, it just didn't have the same performance. I asked the guy who was wrenching my car, he said it feels like a stock 930. But it didn't for me.

When I decided to rebuild it and tore it down, every compression ring on all cylinders was broken. They just fell out in a zillion pieces. It was amazing how well the car ran with smashed rings. I have an adjustable boost controller on it at the time and am sure that didn't help anything! Even with all the rings broken the cylinders and pistons were perfect.
