Forget the numbers (other than AFR)- how does it drive? I'll bet you've transformed the car with all the right mods.
I haven't had the chance to drive it yet, still doing some slight work to it that prevents me from driving it. I believe you may be mistaken with the horsepower numbers. Porsche used engine dyno results which are a far cry from wheel horsepower. 265 was the engine dyno number (flywheel) for the U.S. 1979 930. The wheel horsepower was probably closer to 240. So we are really waking this motor up from a coma when we give it the ability to breath with free flowing open exhaust and headers, good fuel delivery, and a larger efficient turbo. The clutch, LWFW and WEVO shifter doesn't hurt either.
