Tilikum Turbo's statesments are sort diffcult to understand to say politely. Where are you born, on Earth? I'm asking this because you ought to know that engineers don't build cars alone, beancounters have the final word and that is even in Porsche.

Your statements about tested parts, sum of the whole etc may apply to NEW Porsches to some extent but how on earth you could convince a person with a slight clue of engines that CIS injected 930 is better platvorm than EFI 3.2 Carrera with programmable ECU?

And with this is mind I would like to make a suggestion to correct the 1st point of the list: standalone ECU is pretty much the first item one needs to buy if one thinks about boosting a 3.2 or SC. You can make the car run quite fast and relaible with stock headers but with poor tuning one cannot expect it to live more than few hundred miles at worst.
And number one reason for turbocharging projects to fail (mechanically) is poor tuning. That applies to all cars not just Porsches.
