Hey there Mark,
I'm doing just the opposite, I'm doubling up on the mortgage first, then playing later.
Responsibility is just too...well responsible, simply cramps my style & fun.

Yeah Mark, I hear ya....it's all a means to an end...or a beginning if you like. The 930 is the last of my "must have during retirement" toys. Invest in it now while working, so as not to errode my meager retirement income later. As for the house, I've been seriously toying with just writing a big fat check and paying it off. Tired of giving the mortagage company all that free interest.

Your car - stock as it may be - is still a kick in the ass. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that philosophy. Actually, with my history of risk taking activities, you'll probably live to enjoy it longer than I!

Viva la Porsche!

Hey Mark,
Well the engine may be stock(euro), but all the suspension has had a far amount of upgrades, and I've taken all the weight I can out of it, while still having front seats & carpet & tunes. So she may spool up a little slower, but I only playing on the street......So I'll only be a half second behind you in hell!

You have a Duc, everything else is slow. I want a ride in your Jag.

Those specs look fine. I'll deal with the broken studs.

I found one more issue tonight after a closer inspection of the compressor wheel. It appears something came into contact with it. It looks like during storage something slightly dinged one blade. you can feel it with your finger and when you look at the edge of the blade you can see it. I can box it up and get it out Monday if you want. I can try to take a picture of the end of the compressor wheel this weekend so you can see the imperfection.

Bill, I think I am good as Mark's is on the way. If for some reason I cannot use his and you still have yours I'll gladly take you up on the offer. Thank you.

Sounds good Brian, just let me know. I am going to clean it and pack it up for storage so it will be ready to ship as well.
