These threads always turn into dooms day scenarios after a while.

When you mod a 930 to produce more power it's real simple you either blow it up or you don't. You find out what measures you can take to increasing your chances of it not blowing up and you do them, and hope for the best.

If you can't afford to rebuild an engine, then, just don't go there.

If you are modding a 930 for the street there are several measures you can take to increase your chances of beating it.

1. Do not increase compression over factory spec.

2. Increase intercooler size and cooling efficiency

3. Install an aftermarket O2 sensor with a readout and know where
your afr's are at all times.

4. Install at least euro heat exchangers and a good quality free flow

5. ALWAYS run the highest octane fuel available.

6. Run retard timing when under boost.

7. Add increased cooling.

8. Never exceed .9 - 1.0 bar of boost

9. Never run higher boost for extended periods of time.
