Do you see anything wrong?

Some engine pics of a 930 I'm looking at. Can you spot anything wrong or that catches your trained eye? This car has GHL headers, Powerhaus exhaust afaik.

Last pic, funky wiring (for reverse light switch?) wrapped around the e brake cable. Looks like an easy fix.

Turbo oil drip can looks like it's about to rust through. CV half-shaft boots look old, but maybe just dirty. As long as not torn, then OK.
Overall, seems like a fair amount of rust on things in general. Not necessarily excessive, but then I have none on mine so any rust catches my eye.

Looks like the mods were done a long time ago and driven a lot.

I agree with the others. The mods look like they were done ages ago. GHL is out out of business as far as I know, so if you have any problems with them, you are SOL. The rest of the engine looks rusty, dirty and leaking some oil. A good PPI on the engine is needed.

The rear brake lines look old, origonal, and should be replaced for safety.

Thats a dirty ignored beast and in my opinion the price should be quite low in that condition.. of course there are no pics of the rest of the car to really say. you could put on a crappy clothes and pressure clean the bottom to get a better idea.

You should show pics of the front suspension and front suspension pan and trunk with battery removed.

Thanks for all the feedback. This car just closed on ebay today:

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

I just got the underbody pics the last minute so didn't bid on it but maybe the closing price match the condition after all The body and interior looks decent enough thou...maybe just need some major clean up.

Ah yes, saw that one listed. The one with the "Kokeln turbo and intercooler"...I didn't know that Kokeln (sp) made turbos. Not a bad price, but she does look to need a little work for al lthe old and worn stuff showing.

I thought that car was rough from looking at the interior and the guy describes shifting problems and starter failures that he did not address quickly. The freaking window doesn't even work, ha!

Pass on it...

hurts my eyes to see the rear jacked up on the sway bar mounts.

The later 911 like this '87 chassis have steel pads welded to the longitudinals front and rear for jacking or lifting the car up.

They were nonexistant on the early cars and you can't see them in those pics because the lift pads are covering them up.
