- Larger intercooler DP not Ruf as the decal says.
- Modified Airbox
- Twin plug ignition/so you have two plugs per cylinder
- The previous pics show the Miller microfuler which if working correctly will ad more fuel under boost to help prevent a lean situation, often created by that knob being turned-up.
Gumba above gave you a pretty good description of how that works. There is probably a larger than stock turbo and possibly some other internal mods as well..

Pis of the underside, exhaust etc..

Ruf wheels and either an early Ruf or DP lower front valance with the oil cooler cut-out. Is there a cooler behind the grill in front?

Car also appears to be a Euro/ROW model

Clean it up and enjoy it.. nice looking car.
Most importantly first address the severe cancer in engine bay, shouldnt be there for 27000 shouldnt be there at all with any kays, must be from po ods or just neglected when parked, grind a section back get a feel how deep it goes if air hasnt gone through the main crossbeam between shock towers sand it allpaint off leaving some rust and spray with rust converter then repaint , should be good to go without future drama
Excuse any spelling mistakez writing thus on phone under car

the only rust in the engine bay is the heat shield above the turbo, what you see above the air cleaner is old glue, the matting all fell down and some mice were using the insulation for bedding. Damn varmints.

Congrats on the new car. Nice Wheels and Nice Color - I would have bought a Silver One, but couldn't find one 5-yrs ago... When I got my car, I too had to go through it and remove a serious Alpine system with: Amps, EQ's, Alarm, CD Changer, Associated Relays, etc... It was a real PITA. But, along the way, was able to lose 60#'s and a pesky Battery Draw.

I'm glad it's all gone...

I, too, have a '79 and wanted to put something out to the braintrust here. What are those 2 devices I've circled on the left? ?Dual Coils for ignition? I don't have those... Thanks!

Yes, engine is twin plug as evidenced by the dual ignition coils (which you've circled) and by the larger 12 point distributer cap also shown in the pic.

Again, Other than the alarm & radio (if need be), which are fairly simple to trace back, I wouldn't start ripping any of the other systems or wires out of there prior to driving the car and identifying what everything is connected to, or its function.

"I hate all the clutter where are my wire cutters and shrink wrap."

To funny. Last year I spent the better part of a day pulling out the after market "high end" stereo & alarm system from my car. When finished I had a 5 gal. bucket stuffed full of wire & relays. All totaled I must have shed at least 50#. Gotta love free h/p.
Nice looking car. Enjoy

I had one third of that after market wiring in mine. To get it back to normal took (not kidding) 40 hours or more... and I'm an auto electrician/mechanic.

There are "sympathetic" upgrades for these as the electrical system was a generation behind the mechanicals.

Head light relays and fuel pump fuses. Loads of info here on them.

If you are confident enough to start removing wiring. First identify the wire, understand what it does, verify it works. Then once you have removed it, ensure everything else still works before moving on to the next wire.

You are much better off digesting one issue at a time rather than several faults at the same time.

Take loads of photos, make notes and label what you can as you go along.

Great looking 930, and after the sorting it will be better. I reside in the downtown area, our turbo cab has similar issues. The PO completed several mods, including a G50. Send a pm, we should meet up and trade stories.

thanks,
John G

Not sure yet no definitive answer yet but I will be taking my car to the best euro mechanic in my area next week I'm sure he will have a lot of answers for me. Your car is looking very tidy underneath.

Nice Car I'd forgotten all about audiomobile. Great Hi-Fidelity equipment.

The PO did some nice mods. Kill the evil alarm system. They are noting but a PIA.

Never Again !
