Interesting read here which is exactly what i meant when i said the shorter gears of the 915 is like putting extra 50hp at the wheels over the standard 930 box

Ill quote first line anyway as written by Rennsport for the unbelievers and knockers

like adding 50 HP to your car!
LIKE adding. NOT adding. There is like a big difference. No wait a sec. There IS a big difference. If you added 50 hp to the same car it would be even better.
The short ratios quicken the feel. But there is a trade off. Lower speed.
The best thing would be to have tall gear with big power.
And about your comment on the used parts you may be right. They are over 30 years old and over 100k miles in them.
