I work in Broomfield, and live in Fort Collins. I am in town the next couple of days (Broomfield), and then gone until basically a week from Saturday traveling for work.

I own a 1992 911 Turbo, and owned an '86 Carrera before that.

It sounds like you are on the right path for the PPI. There are a couple of other shops around as well. Grady will be able to fill you in, if not I can forward you the list.

I'd have no problem going to look at the car with you if you would like. I can help point out some common areas of concern, but you need the PPI for sure. A couple of questions that might help before the PPI, which you should pay for by all means:

Does the previous owner have any of the service paperwork?
Is it running the stock waste gate spring?
Does the owner have the orignal 7& 9 Fuchs?

As a side note, when I had my PPI done, it had good leakdowns, compression, etc, but there were some other areas that needed to be adressed, so I negotiated with the sellar.
