All those pictures are from an era where Porsche was a allowed to flex its muscles with turbo technology. Guess we couldnt be allowed to win them all...

I have a complete stock motor running Brianís Zork and 934 WG/Pipe, here are my observations.

At idle/cold and driving away, it sounds like a road grader under heavy load.

Motor and Exhaust must be at OT before the music & light show begins.

Under hard accel the Zork drowns out the sound of the WG when it opens, from the driverís perspective
the only thing I can hear and observe is an atmospheric fluttering noise and the boost gauge failing to exceed .8 bar (stock spring)

When deccel at mid-late boost there will be 2-4 loud pops with at least 2 of them producing flames, after that,
many small pops and crackles until stopping or clutching.

All in all, it's worth it
