Any 1970s 930 has drastically different power delivery from the 1980 and up cars. Simply due to the fact that the engines are less refined and more raw. Lower compression, higher boost and a slightly lighter car made for a much more dramatic on/off boost experience. At the end of the day what is the fun of driving any early 930? -The kick in the pants and tail sliding sideways! 1975/79 930s are the cars that earned the 930 its widow maker reputation. That is what I believe collectors value in these cars. They are a handful to drive especially compared to the 1986/89 cars that used revised higher compression ratios, lower boost settings, different ignition setup and fuel head settings.
