Remember here though you are talking about an air-cooled car that is almost 30 years old. Its a different animal than a modern computer controlled car. Yes, most guys do the "stage 1" without any real tuning necessary. K27 HF turbo, 1 bar boost spring, bigger intercooler, open exhaust. After that you start looking into modifying the factory Mechanical fuel injection. But up to about 380-400HP, the mechanical will flow plenty of fuel. The mechanical is capable of flowing enough fuel in the big 600+HP cars, but as some have said in other posts it is a very inefficient delivery. If you want serious boost and power the general consensus is a twin-plug car with an aftermarket EFI, unless you are going for a 100% authentic 935 replica.

Oh, and BTW your euro-spec car has a few pro's and con's

pro: Its lighter than the US SPEC EPA loaded car, and has a lighter fly wheel setup and better gear ratios (US Cars had to meet EPA emissions and got crappy ratios up top)

Con: you have the older euro dash with little tiny air vents and blower. I live in Germany and can tell you over there summer is a joke compared to places like texas. If ya live somewhere hot, look into an after market AC unit. Also grey market cars do not usually have the value of a US Spec.

my bro and dad both have euro spec cars, and these are little things they have run into.
