2. If top performance was my #1 goal i would not have bought a 930, or any air cooled.

3. I figured modded= stressed and there are VERY few that are and have always been stock with records to back it up. I didn't consider "back to stock" the same as always stock.

4. Bone stock also tends to be lower miles, less enjoyed and yes, maybe somebody elses garage queen.

5. I started looking at modded ones because stock was harder to find, but there are so many different options each car was apples to oranges comparison with what was modded, quality of the equipment, quality of installation all of which I had to see in person. stock is stock.

Now that i know the car much better I love stock but am much more open to mods on my next one.
Matt ^nailed it^ IMO - well said brohammage...

Mine was one of those bonestock 39k miler's.
