There are so many things that could cause the poor running and you don't say what has been looked at and crossed off the list of things your guy's have checked already.

If they know old mechanical CIS fuel injection, have basic tools like a CIS fuel pressure gauge, some way to check the exhaust AFR's and a simple inductive timing light and they still have no idea whats wrong then maybe you need a porsche mechanic that knows the older cars.
+1, I had a large big city Porsche dealer/shop tell me they don't work on air cooled pcars cuz they don't know how...RC
