Welcome aboard!

An old song by Queen comes to mind with the lyrics "another one bites the dust" - as in poised to begin the journey of sliding down that slippery slope of modifications. You buy the car, get instantly adrenalin addicted, start wondering what it would be like with just a touch more power....and off you go to never never land! If you've ever owned a barrel full of monkeys, it's more fun than that.

All the bolt on mods are really quite straightforward. There are no electronics to worry about, except the various Lambda control pieces. Most just rip all that crap out and run without it. Get a good turbo, get a larger intercooler, get a freeflowing muffler and get rid of the catalytic converter....those are the must-do's. Then you can start fine tuning with fuel control (adjustable WUR), hotter ignition, timing adjustments, boost adjustments, headers, air intake mods, BOV mods, and finally SC or 964 cams. In the words of George Harrison, "it's gonna take patience and time, and a whole lot of spending money".
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
