gumba,

Not much to add -- I have a 76 turbo. As a 3.0/6:1, it was a little iffy to drive in town. Not much get up and go at stop lights/etc. It was of course, very happy once we were up in the revs!

It swallowed a valve, so it was rebuild time. At that time, we switched piston/cylinders from the 3.0/6:1 to a 3:2/7.6:1. Driveability was almost "magically" improved. Just a little extra torque made a world of difference in city driving.

Now, that's against a stock 930 tranny/etc. The 915 may have lower gears/etc, and you may not see exactly the same issues, and I'm not sure what the relative weights between the vehicles are. Just something to think about...

hth.

kim.
