Well it would be about 5-7 grand for the motor and 2-3 grand for the tranny plus new hubs and half shafts because the 930 was unique on all that stuff and then alot of work adapting the carrera stuff into the car and the value would go down the tube. If you want the turbo look then look around they are out there although if you get a turbo and still want to do the unthinkable you will have no problem selling the motor/ tranny combo for more than the cost of the motor you are putting in. I added the turbo to my NA motor and there is nothing like the feel of the boost kicking in cant imagine not having that kick in the ass now!
" Porsche there is no substitute" I always liked that saying. Air cooled is the only way to go!
