WUR, warm up regulator? What does it do? Not looking for answers to those specific questions, but if there is a resource for someone like me? Sorry for the hijack. Anyone in the Tulsa area? I grill a killer ribeye, ribs are not bad either.
This K-Jetronic video is a good start. Note - it is not turbo-specific, so some of the turbo system components are not explained, but it is a good, basic explanation of the system.

The late Bruce Anderson's book, 911 Performance Handbook, is also an excellent, fairly easy, read. It also is not turbo specific, though there is a lot of turbo information in it, and of course, much of the fundamentals of the car are shared (regular 911 'v' 930). Also, there is much good information about the historic development of the various models and info on vin decoding and so forth.

Pelican - Porsche 911 Performance Handbook

This website, developed by a guy that posts on Pelican, is excellent also (again, not turbo specific, but full of excellent info).
