Pockets are much too shallow me thinks. I mean, those wheels alone make me cringe.

OK, opinions again. I'm having a hard time swallowing the huge price for 15X 9 and 11 fuchs or fuchs replicas, but love the newer style mesh style wheels also. Kinda like the bbs look but updated even further. Fisk, HRE style but not real forged as this is the price issue. How would an RSR look car using later style wheels look? Does the RSR require Fuchs? I love Fuchs, but.....this car is not going to track much, at least not initially. I just want an older style with some newer bits and pieces to freshen up some, like no RSR front bumper(I'll use twin fender mounts), Ideas?

A set of 8x15 Fuchs are usually not very expensive. There is also a 15x10" Minilite copy out there that is very reasonable. This could be a reasonable way to go. This style of set up I think was run on some of the Porsches of that period.

The challenge then becomes tires. I do not know if there is a tire for a 15x11 out there for any reasionble price.

I would look at a set of 7 or 8 & 9" x 16 Fuchs. I bought my last set for $1500. Kumho makes a 225 & 265 XS tire that is a great tire and very well priced.

You might be able to pick up two sets of 8x15's and have one set widened to 10's and to the outside.

Again, you might want to start with picking tires first and back into your rims.

Just a thought.

Update.
I ditched that 71, way too much rust and work. I picked up a 77 that looks fabulous! Runs well enough to pass smog and is perfect for my low boost 3.0 turbo street porsche. Excited to make the transformation. Keep your eyes peeled.

Better pics showing the true color.
These are pics taken during and after the trip from san fran to vegas when we picked it up. BTW highway 1 from half moon bay to santa barbara was awesome in this car! Perfect car for that stretch for sure, highly recomend in a P car,

Indeed yellowbird is the bumper of choice for me, yes. It's on my list, not the highest part on the list as the car is so good looking right now, but within a year or so.

Great looking Carrera look.

Just at thought. If you keep the stock look for a while and concentrate on mechanicals. Could be a great Q ship.

With a 3.0T motor, intake ports, Group B cams, 7300rpm red line, 1.2 bar on meth and you could have a 400hp sleeper.

Fun, fun, fun.

True, but I will remain a little more realistic than 400hp. I'm still running the 915 so it will see maybe one bar at most but will run meth, how many rpm's? holy crap. That would be sooo cool. For now I'll be happy with reliable 300-350hp. I'm planning to use a garrett gt30r from turbokraft and no intercooler.....EEEk, but with meth. I have bought sc cams from Brian(rarlyl8) with the machining for the scavenge pump.
One question though, I have the 76 930 and a 78-89 930 intake manifold and associated plumbing, should I titch the diverter systems in favor of more modern fabed plumbing with more modern diverters? Again, no intercooler.

The nice thing about the 3.0 is it has much stronger rods than the 3.3. With ports and the right cam you could do a higher rpm build that keeps the TQ under what might be to much for the transmission and yet make big HP.

The stock cams make more TQ than HP. C2's make more HP than TQ.

For example, say you do not want to go over peak TQ of 325# you would probably run at about 300# at HP peak. Depending on the cam and build if you make peak HP at say 5500, 6000, 6500, or 7000rpm and you would end up with HP numbers of about 315, 345, 375, or 400hp.

Thus, it may be possible to build a 325#/400hp motor that the 915 might be able to live with. If done right it would not even need over 1 bar of boost.

The cost of more peak HP will be the loss of some low end response as the motor will run more like a 911S than a 911SC. If you have ever diven an S motor the RPM's can be intoxicating.

Just a thought.

Found out some not so good news today. Firstly, car runs great but with a pulled/not torquing stud. Hmmmmm. No big deal I guess, it's getting yanked anyway but I was hoping to be able to sell the 2.7 fir a little cash.
And the 915 is from an older car? I think it's the #91561 or something. Wrench has it written down. So this with the weaker 7.31 r/p. Crap, I'll have to replace that when I twist it apart with the turbo boost, if that does indeed hurt it. Ice been told more than one opinion. We'll see.
Compression was good on the 2.7 at least.

I guess the 915/61 is 8.31. So that's good. Boost me.
