The original 930 3.0 was non-intercooled(but the engine was designed from the get-go not to need one(hence the difference in about 50HP, down from 282 to 234HP(of course the 3.2L crank and the .1L displacment didn't hurt the 3.3L either).

As far as the original plan of a non-intercooled, non-turbo 3.0L, then turbocharging that motor with no intercooler.

These engines are very tricky that experimenting with the route you are thinking and could hole pistons or much worse. Sounds like a major headache project.

If I were to go the 3.0L turbo route, then I would find a true 3.0 turbo engine from a 1975-77 930. This way...NO surprises if it's tight from the start, or it your a DIY'er, then rebuild the engine.

As far as neutering a 3.3L with no intercooler...absolutely not.

Good luck!
