Judging by what you describe regarding the single motor set-up on your slant nose conversion, the parts may have been sourced through Alan Johnson Racing as they offered conversions using factory parts..

Note that niether your valnce nor your exhaust appear to be Ruf items.. any interior or engine shots?

Nice looking car btw!

The paper work I have show that it is a Ruf Exhaust and Ruf metal fenders but I have no way of knowing if it is correct. I do not have engine shots....yet...but here is the interior:

Most of the money went into making it look like a RUF BTR.
The engine is a stock 3.3 with a Euro Fuel System and a Ruf variable boost. It has a .6 bar spring that gets you to .9 bar when you crank it in. Stock 4 speed and Intercooler. I was disappointed that they did not do the intercooler with a Ruf unit. I get not doing the transmission or motor because of the $$$ involved.

It has 48k miles and has been driven around 5k mile since 1997 so I have had it in the shop for 2 months sorting through the fuel injection system. I also had it serviced while the motor was out. We found a "Rodent Nest" in the engine compartment in front of the air cleaner assembly but we found no apparent damage to wiring...yet!

The electrical mods that Ultra-Smith did are a nightmare to sort out. No wiring diagrams and it is just a mess.

My futur plans after I recover from this work, is to go with headers, new exhaust, a high flow turbo and bigger IC. The standard bolt on stuff. Maybe some day I will get the 5 speed, probably a short bell housing G50.
