How about making some headers, going with low boost?

Bernard, don't worry, the sun hasn't fully fried my brain!
Keep in mind that my LHD car is worth significantly less than a RHD car in Aus.
While it is still a 930, it is a LHD drive 930 in a market where it is priced lower than a similar year Carrera, so it's all relative.
It's a bit of a no-brainer for me - what would I rather drive for similar money - a LHD turbo or a RHD Carrera? How many nano-seconds do you need to ponder that one!

Seeing that the car is already out-of-the-norm so to speak, I'm not too fussed about deviating further from the norm by implanting a N/A 3.6. Besides, my nice fresh 930 engine is worth good $$$.
Where I see this going in future is further development in the direction of forced induction, but before I go there, I want to get to try a few different things with the engine and get my head around Megasquirt.

For me, at least half the fun is in the design and building (and learning).
$h!t, I've damn near convinced myself to do it!!
1988 Carrera - 3.6 engine (with ITBs, COPs, MS3X) and a whole set of turbo body panels waiting in the attic.
Day job ...
