I've owned the "Old Sled" for 22 years and have learned much about modding a 930 in that time. But the one thing that you need to know before you start is how you are going to use the car. I learned it the hard way.

I, like many others have, been all over the map with what is cool at the time, what the big race tuners use, what you hear here, and what you see in the pictures in the books. Then I thought, I'm never going to run Daytona, go 200 MPH, drive DE's, or run the Miracle Mile. So after 3 exhaust systems, 2 cam changes, 4 turbos, 2 clutches, and 3 ignitions I realized, I'm just an old fart that likes to get to the store and from lite to lite quickly.

I did 2 mods that completely transformed the car. The first was an 8:37 ring and pinion, shortened 2nd & 3rd gear. The second was the icing on the cake, the right headers. This car has incredible low end response and nearly zero lag. It is truly the most fun you can have with your cloths on.
