914s were not known for being particularly stiff, durable, or having high spring plates. 964 chassis is designed differently and is stiffer with better welding. It might even have thicker metal.

If you run helper springs with your torsion bars, then you do not need the bracing. If you go full coil-overs, the bracing is highly recommended. I have it on my torsion bar car.

Coil-overs are really not necessary with your intended driving style. What problems are you having with the torsion bars? I would just have a good shop set it up once to how you like it- corner balance and alignment, then forget about it. Coil-overs main advantage is being able to change ride height easily.

If you are still set on coil-overs, I recommend talking to Clint at Rebel Racing: Suspension1 He can go as far with the 935 setup as you want. If you cannot get ahold of him, email me. maxsluiter@earthlink.net
