Add your hours of time and the - while I'm in here factor and you are up to 10-12K for the project... OR

Sell you SC for 12-16 add in the 10-12K anad you are in the range of a 930 or at least close. The 930 will continue to hold it's value more than a highly modified 911 in resale and the comfot zone is charted territory....

IMHO- Mike...........................It's what I did after owning a 911 that had over 16K in the motor alone and was still not as fast- over all - as my 930
Whooop! Back Full Circle!

And you do all this with little or no Engineering safety factor. In addition to all the other Parts that make a 930 a 930. When you look at it that way, the 930 is a hell of a deal, Suspension, brakes, transmission, bodywork, etc
