Intercooler will not help in one respect, but it will cool which actually makes power and thats debatable but I believe it's true. I know when I simply put on an intercooler on my 77 3.0 turbo the difference was that it made it feel less smoothly transitioned. It would boost with a snap rather than a smooth build up of boost. but it was quicker overall which means more power. Then you can add boost and legitimately make more power safely.
You can add an intercooler two ways. One is to get the factory intercooler add on system the dealer sold which consist of some adapters for the intercooler from the factory to fit the non cooler engine physically.
The way I chose is the 964 elbow with diverter valve in Lu of the factory diverter lump you currently have. Just remove all that crap and replace it. Makes the engine so much nicer to look at and work on not to mention the fact it's better. Then choose your intercooler that fits the longneck style and install. Done.
Add that and a k27 unit and you'll make good power, If you swap the headers you'll do it quicker.
I'd sell it for a profit and buy a 3.3 with goodies already installed.
Turbo powa!
1977 911s. it's cool
