My signature line seems to be missing. If it were there you would see I ran a 350whp 930 engine in my widebody SC for about 15 years. Went through 2 trannies, the first broke with 300whp at the drag strip. Don't do that. Rebuilt that one with WEVO retainer and found an '86 with factory oil cooler and built that one strong with custom gears. It went with the car when I sold it. The 915 will not hold up to abuse even with the WEVO and side plate. Use the turbo not the clutch and all is well. No speed shifting or you will shuck 2nd gear (Quattro?)

I think it is a good idea to sell the 7:31 to an early 911 guy and get an 8:31 later model 915. I still have that repaired 915 under my bench if you decide to do that and need one.
