I know right?

Though if I was going to go that nuts I would do the 930 in Signal Green.

Theres early 70 cars imitating RS Carreras a

And theres 911sc imitating 930's

But yours is one better a US 930 imitating a Euro Car. I hope more do it it will help bring value up even more on my Factory Original Last Euro Produced without IC for 1977

And it's a relatively easy, no big deal conversion, too!

But What about the engine?
Everyone knows the EURO's have about 600+HP stock,
that must be a lot of work??

Forgive me for asking, but what's the point of the conversion?(other than not running a CAT)

^^^ It basically it seems that the point of the conversion is to simply say one did it. Of course some like the AA bumper tits over the DD, and the lower ride height looks better, but as far as the K-Jet fuel system is concerned, it has been proven that the US spec, aluminum fuel head can actually be made to flow more fuel than the euro version, the ero version is much more prone to corrosion (cast steel v aluminum) and the US spec head has a better, more durable, primary diaphragm, too. The conversion would definitely be a lot of buck for very little bang, but it just boils down to personal preference.

"euro spec" discount no more

That wasn't cheap. This should put to rest forever all the debates over whether a euro spec car is worth less than a US car, all else equal. it's an international market for early turbos now, and anyone who will go to the time and expense to convert a US car to euro spec would surely have been happy to restore a car that was already euro...

don't ya think think the smoother casting silver colored US aluminum lambda head looks more refined and nicer too
..and hey, it weighs a bunch less than the rust filled cast iron ones!

^^^ Ha! Yep the aluminum one looks much more betterer (as Paul would say) than the Euro version that looks like it was made by pouring molten cast iron into a mold chipped out of stone with an air chisel!

Quality iron you could make a lung machine, eiffel tower with, ironman suit too!!

Cast aluminum? so you could recycle that into sodacans or a set of braces or a belt buckle,

ill post pic later to convince all of you
