... but the K27 was not a carry over from the 930, it is specific to the 965.

What Ben needs is the 3LDZ bracket. That is the one all 930's have and must be used for fitment purposes when designing exhaust components.

It is curious that the 965 lists the same part number for the turbo bracket as the 930. As illistrated above, the turbos are different and the K27 requires a bracket mod when installed to replace the stock 3LDZ on a 930. The post-turbo exhaust system on the 965 is completely different than that of the 930, so it stands to reason that if the same bracket is used on both 930/965 then the turbo is oriented slightly different on the 965 than on the 930 and the 965 exhaust system is designed to accommodate.
That also would explain why my mufflers fit differently on a 965. Interesting ...
