Exactly...if it wasn't designed/developed for that engine, it may sound good from a price standpoint, but the end results most likely be less than desirable.

Since no 1974-89 911 turbo engine came from the factory with twin-turbos, that application may be even more ambiguous.

1983 911 3.3L Turbo(YES, I know the turbo badge is on the right...had to be different!)
