My worthless 930

Just spoke with a local porsche guru. Very respected in the pca
community. Wanted advice re: Fuel leak. Mentioned that i intended to do full bay, turbo, wastegate upgrade, the right
headers, etc. To me, this will "free" the engine to make power.
Not harm or over stress it. He said that it was extremely difficult to do this and have the engine run properly. He also said that later model porsches would walk all over me anyway.
He stated that my very nice 1978 930 was worth very little, and
would be worth even less if modified. Said that a widow wanted to sell her deceased husbands pristine 1979 930. Was
very happy to get $7000.00. I believe i have seen lesser cars than mine go for over $35000.00. I really respected this man,
but after this conversation, i was more than a little confused.
Any thoughts on this whole thing? I thought i was on the right track. Thanks, jp
