If you do plan to go big then it will cost you $5K+ to replace with a 4spd or $10-$15K for a G50 after you hack up the chassis to make it fit.

Factory condition My car is 1050kg Gross, then removal of All Aircon system compressor etc, Heater Box, the big Water holder thing, mats, some carpet and the jack Extremely light , Easy under 1000kg so i get to speed very quickly, first is unusable second ive got about 2 seconds before im going for thirdm ITs a Gokart, and she sits about 1 inch off the road,

HP on its own is approx 380 to 420 with The Porsche upgrades on the car and a couple of not porsche upgrades that (might be on the car) i say might because im TRYING to keep my car Bone Factory Stock and change it where i can to Factory Stock, ie: get rid of 915. (will keep the fast bits)

i bet if i planted it in first or second for that matter the Tranny will end up on the road

ITs bad always having it in the back of your mind, we need to feel 100 percent confident in these machines and having a mechanical area that is always ...etc .. well you know what i mean..

Keep in Mind, all the Euro engines when Tested that didnt make 260hp were not installed, variations can be fron 260hp to 285hp in stock form nothing added, that with the light weight, In my opinion the 75-77's were faster then all the US 930's from 78 to 89

AND MY CAR is the last 1977 930 ROW EURO PORSCHE made in the world, so thats gotta be 150hp on its own?? lol

A Thuoght,

Is there a WAY any way? that i can reinforce the 915 box???

Id be happy to do that if its possible/
Last row 1977 3.0 930 260hp built, still reassembling
Row 1998 996 MK1 3.4 296hp new daily driver
