Also remember this

If to do this all again I would do the following

930 induction
930 exhaust
fab your own oil drain into the sump
t off the idiot light switch for oil supply

This the cheapest (2.5K)and easiest setup.
also almost monkey proof so this would be great for a shop that is not real excited about the project.. Useing stock parts makes easy to upgrade and identify parts.

You will be able to lay down about 300hp at .5 bar approx the 915 will hold up fine


Now if you are going to pay another 2.5k to have someone do the install think real hard about buying a 930.. I chose this route (build off a 3.0 sc engine)cause everyone told me don't do it, it won't work well it does and can work well.

oh and with the 3.0 you start with better rod set up and journels. now if building a crazy engine that does not factor in as the misgivings of the 3.2/3.3 rods are taken care of right away
