Modded 930.

These cars respond so well to mods. If you drive a stock engined car after having driven one that is properly modded, the stock one will leave you asking "where's the beef?"

My friend has an absolutely beautiful '86 930. His has upgraded suspension, wheels, and ridiculous "hand of god" Brembo GT brakes...motor is stock. We swapped cars once and I honestly could not believe the difference. His car felt like a naturally aspirated car next to mine. S'funny...when you make the mods incrementally yourself starting with a stock example, you sort of don't notice each little improvement. But when you jump in a stock car to compare, the difference is astounding.
