Great read! - I've followed your other thread without posting.

Glad you are enjoying your ownership so far. I've only had my car about 9 months now but so far I'm in love with mine. This is my 4th Porsche but my first air-cooled Porsche. I really enjoy the car. I wish I had taken the time to document some of my escapades so far. I did a complete interior restoration on my car shortly after I bought it because 1) I hated the two-tone champagne black interior and 2) my dash was warped and dry from age. It would have been neat to document since I pulled all the interior out, did new sound-deadening, carpet, panels, seats, roll bar, harnesses, etc. All really fun stuff for us 930 guys but a PITA for many others.

My second project was a 1st round of bolt-ons that replaced the headers, exhaust, intercooler, intake, turbo, wastegate, fuel pumps, etc. - I also deleted the secondary air injection crap from my car. The removal of all that along with the intercooler install greatly simplified my engine bay. I can quickly service the top side of the motor now. Some you may want to consider.

Anyhow, glad you are enjoying your car!

Chris.

I read this with horror
I need to replace the oil feed line to turbo, so engine drop most likely (they have flex lines but wheres the fun in that?) and my I too have had a little scope creep!
fuel head toWUR hose, new rubber cap for oil send unit, triangle stuff, Brey Krause extinguisher holder! Why not another rubber clutch sleeve, transmission ground, reseal chain housing/retime and a leak down to go while im at it. also considering a whole slew of new vac hoses w oetiker like you. why not it's only March.

I read this with the horror of someone who's already lost control but hasn't yet hit the guardrail, [order not placed yet] but unable to avoid it. Thanks for the foresight

Thanks folks, I appreciate the kind words.

Mark -
Name wise, 16volt comes from when I owned my Scirocco 16V. A good friend of mine always called the car a Scirocco 16volt and the name just stuck. The name my parents chose for me however is Shannon. Through the years I often find myself in the situation you describe, knowing people only by their online persona's name.

Hopefully I will find a good reason to head across the pass this summer, we'll have to grab lunch or something.

Scott -
I can sympathize with the reluctance to finish that comes with having a car torn apart in the garage. Over the years I have learned to keep my projects focused and give myself realistic deadlines with plenty of cushion. I usually set some car event as the deadline i.e. having the car ready for a cruise etc. My best advice to overcome the "oh my god what have I done" feeling is break it into bit size mini steps, reassemble one component at a time. Once you start hitting those small goals consistently it get allot easier through momentum.

Paul -
I am well versed with CIS and its idle issues. When I went to a full standalone EFI system on the Scirocco however I learned just how good CIS is. Once you have to program a car how to idle from scratch using either timing/fuel of PID settings on a ISV valve you'll sorely miss CIS.

I miss the mixture control on CIS-E where I could just plug a multi-meter in and dial away. Oh well.

I am really pleased with the 930 community, truly. It's very similar to the VW folks. I have found that higher the price of entry is the worse the community tends be so its been a really great surprise.

Chris -
You should definitely grab a cheap digital camera and document what you do. I feel like its good positive re-enforcement and motivation to keep going. I always consider those folks who haven't done something before when I take pictures, maybe something I do will help someone down the line.

This spring I envision the interior coming out of my car as well. While I would love to do some cool custom touches I need to get it to my baseline of clean, sorted and functional.

reachme -
If I had the space and the gear I wouldnt mind doing a motor drop. Just make a punch list once its out and tackle each fix one at a time. Conversely, once you get the intake plumbing off doing the vacuum lines is very easy and cheap. It has the added bonus of getting you a better picture of the oil line routing so you can make an informed decision to if you want to try to tackle it with the motor in the car.

I am headed directly towards the guardrail as I left a message for gentleman selling some wheels I want. I casually brought it up with the finance department here at home last night, the initial reaction was not overwhelmingly positive. I see the distinct possibility of hiding wheel boxes in the garage under laundry in my future.

2nd this suggestion - Long neck + deletion of secondary air injection crap = really cleaned up things.

One could change plugs on my car in 30 minutes now.

I would love to get a long neck IC (currently have a short neck Garretson), but don't the good ones run $3-$4K and up?

No they aren't that bad. More like 2-3K.

I have my Fabspeed I am about to take off my car my friend. New they are like $2300 for the whole setup. If you're interested in it let's talk sometime.

Ronnie i bought a used Kokeln on this site for $1,200 with the 965 downpipe. I have seen them come for sale at similar prices.

Whoops, I was thinking about a full bay, long neck . . . at some point, that is what I want, and then will remove the tail a/c condenser, and add a couple more to the wheel wells (already have a Zims in the left rear).

Shannon, pleased to meet you! If you ever get the urge to dry out in my neck of the woods, just give me a jingle and we'll meet up!

16V,

I LOVE the musings of Ezra Dyer and your story was more creative, humorous and expressive than anything I’ve read from him. Keep bringing it! Ed

well.... great read Shannon.

I am just getting started diving into a resurrection/refresh of a 78 930.

as you mentioned, get too much going on and hard to see progress. I stumbled on this 930 not really wanting another project but just could not pass it up.

the consequence is I got distracted by the 930 and now my 951 DE track car build is behind schedule and track season rapidly approaching.

I am saving this link to refer back to once I get back to the 930.

I am finding this forum to have great participation.

if you do not already know of him, you need to contact Steve Weiner, Rennsport Systems. he is in Portland. great 911 / 930 knowledge resource.

good luck on your continued journey with your 930. I am looking forward to my first drive.

Bob

Take some spelling lessons from Ronnie....that's ho'auh, or just plain ho' for short. You could add extra flavor with expletives like "mo'fo'in, back-stabbin, ungreatful" to drive your point home. I think our non-writer Shannon is giving us a run for the money!

And now back to our regularly scheduled program.....

I have completed the "Learning to Speak Paul for Dummies Pt1" book thus far. I look forward to the rest in the series.

I read his posts like it was a haiku written while on LSD.

Seriously though, thank you all for the kind words. I am happy you enjoy the articles (see how I classed it up there?).
