Actually it looks exactly like two regular garreston intercoolers welded together and the right single turbo intercooler has it's inlet closed off.

Chris Carroll was an owner of PowerHaus, he and Chris Fisher were the owners of the original PowerHaus. Chris Fisher, the "original" wild man, sold his share to Chris Carroll and moved to S.E. Asia several years ago.

The blocked inlet is in the wrong location. Also the IC gets fat toward each end.

If that were the case the welded up opening would be on the top right hand corner (flipped) or lower left center (side by side). That is unless they made a left-handed / mirrored IC.

Chris mentioned he had a new TurboKraft inter-cooler ( cost+ $2K ) my choice, and the one left would go on the wall until he got it back as a first right of refusal option was discussed.

Looks like the car is going back to Germany, looking at the winner's bid history.

Also the Autobahn to drive it on. Good price as opposed to where the reserve was. Congratulations to Chris to at least get more $$$$$ as I think he would have prefered not to sell it. Leave the driveway,....I thought it had 6000 miles on it?

That thing will never see the Autobahn, as the Germans are militantly regulatory about keeping cars like this off the road. This car will be for track use only, and even then, it will have it's nutz chopped off with a quiet and restrictive muffler system. This is one of the few areas in which the US is a lot better than Europe, in that we can drive older, modded 930s on public roads. You should have seen the incredulous looks people gave me when i drove my basically open exhaust SC through europe, even when tooling around Stuttgart. You would have thought i was driving an alien spaceship.

I've never had any problems driving around Europe in my 930, the Swiss are very tight on speed and the fines are ridiculous when you're caught, 800 fine the last time i was in Verbeir, and i was only 30kph over the limit!
The French hate us all, but not had any grief from them in the last 10 years of driving enthusiastically to Le Mans, don't get caught with a speed camera detector as they will smash it up on the road side, and if you have a jammer you are going to the police station with them! Even if you get pulled over and you don't have a high viz vest, reflective triangle and spare bulbs and fuses they will fine you!
Never had a problem in Germany, Holland or Denmark, although i can't really comment on what the rules are with registering "modified" cars are, i thought most of Europe was quite relaxed with that, apart from the Swiss! I guess we have it quite easy in the UK, apart from mega high petrol prices and over crowded roads

Jon, was referring to what regulations Germans citizens (and a lot of Dutch, continental euros) are faced with. U guys dont really consider yourselves a part of the EU, do you, but i have seen where guys from the UK were not allowed to run the Ring due to mods which were not kosher. Watch out tho, the Politically correct 'anti-fun' wankers are never too far below the surface On-Line Petition to Save Spa-Francorchamps so watch your back over there.

I heard about the Spa nonsense a while ago, utterly insane, the world really is getting taken over by lentil eating, tree hugging ****wits! I'm not sure whether as a country we see ourselves as part of the EU, i think we are reluctant to let go of the as it's part of our identity, although it's not worth a great deal anymore! Other than that I guess we are European? I don't rightly care anyway, i certainly won't be spending my retirement here

car!

i live about 20 miles from the car and so i went over to take a look. was not interested in purchasing...just wanted to see it in before it left this area! it was very clean and neat, a daily driver sort of cosmetics. i was never into that type front end but certainly looked ok with that car. it was very neat and appeared to be well thought out. it cranked readily and the zork sounded ....well like a zork. i did not notice any drips on the concrete. so i think if you were looking for a cis car with well done mods this was a good car. i was surprised that it sold on ebay at that price.

It is a great car in may ways that I would love to own and I bet could not be built for the sales price.

However, it is not a 76 Turbo nor built on any other turbo base car, it needs an expensive transmission conversion to handle the motor, it dose not have Turbo rear arms or Turbo front or rearsuspension geometry. I just hope the buyer truly understands what he purchased is a 911 converted to a turbo.

For what it is worth, I would call it a great car that was 'well sold' more than 'well bought'.

You couldn't buy anything close to this in Europe for 20K Euro. Thanks to our wonderful economic policies, like Pete said, guys over there are snapping up US cars like lottery winners getting lap dances. Remember when US $20K used to be equal to Euro 20K???

I too say "well sold" however I would not be surprised if the sale doesn't go through. The posting could easily be interpreted as a '77 930 based 934 which is more than this car and this fact may come to light when all the paperwork is being processed. That said I think the car stands for itself if this is what you want.
