Anyone with a 930 can convert their engine to RUF spec but if you want to keep it authentic RUF it's $$$.

1985 RUF BTR (Porsche 911 Turbo)

Here's a good site that will shed more light into the RUF conversion.

So for clarification regarding boxed rockers, the fact that a box rocker does not have "a black cap towards the rear for the jack: is not an true indicator that a car having such is not factory, be it a Slantnose or otherwise. It is misinformation thanks to the internet and merely an assumption.

I say this having owned, serviced, and looked at many factory cars with box rockers that don't have the hole for the jack. Yes, some are cheap stampings that never had the hole, while others have actually had the wholes closed off.. welded shut!

Also for those that are unaware, the box rocker is made up of two parts. The actual box section, a stamping, that attaches to the body, and then the rocker panel which attaches to the box stamping. This rocker is actually from the mid-year 911 (74 - 77) and thus has no flare to it.

Oh, so did the cars with these box rockers have a different jack supplied from Porsche?

Thank you for the clarification. I was also told that the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity may really only be the "starting point" in researching the original specifications because sometimes not all the info is on it... just that it's a real Porsche.... I may go back into the file I have and see if it has the original owner listed, but was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions on where to dig deeper....

Jacks were the same. Although using them in some cases could be an adventure.

Also, some , but not all of the Special Wishes cars with boxed rockers had a jack extension point welded in place on the tub.

Porsche 930 heater boxes and manifold

Any suggestions on a source for used 930 stock manifold with good heater boxes or new replacements? My manifold and pipes seem good, but the heater boxes themselves are corroded and no good.

I saw several options for new including a few our host offers so I was hoping some folks have recommendations to sort through the options :-) So far I've had my heads and my injector re-done by folks I connected with through the forum so I'm hoping the streak continues with the heater box advice :-)

I'm also not opposed to a used set in good condition, but they seem impossible to locate ...

Agent - didn't Chris (Hams) offer you his pair of really excellent exchangers earlier in this thread?

Porsche 930 Turbo LE?

Based on some feedback from the forum on 930 "slant nose Vs 930 "non-Slant nose", I found this:

930 LE | Total 911

It looks a lot like my car with the small exception of the lower front lights.

If it is it would explain a lot on why the body looks like it does.

Anyone have any suggestions on how I could check this?

The COA from Porsche only says "981 911 Turbo Coupe" and :http://www.total911.com/datafile/911-turbo-le/"Equipment for Germany"

Vehicle VIN is WP0ZZZ93ZCS000119

On the surface if the last 3 digits are the number of cards made that way it would not work as it would be 119th but I'm not sure that is an accurate way to tell.

Still.. it is an interesting thought :-)

Has anyone had any experience with ceramic coating the manifolds and heat exchangers on a 930? I've seem some placed that do it, and was wondering what the pros and cons might be.

No cons as long as you don't do the inside.
Provides a nice durable finish to keep the exchangers from becoming crusty. Also said to reduce temps a bit and we can always use that.

I had it done to the headers of some other vehicles purely for aesthetics and was pleased with the outcome. Had planed to coat my 930 headers from collectors to turbo and wastegate mounting... however, like an idiot, I couldn't resist the bling of fully polished stainless steel!

Hi,
I made it on my whole exhaust, but I have for the moment no experience except for its appearance because my engine did not go back up yet, a small photo of the ceramic treatment white Zircotec.

Pat- Thanks That is EXACTLY what I was looking for - Question for you

Pat:

thank you for responding. Zircotec is EXACTLY the same stuff I was looking at! Where did you get it done and how? I saw their stuff advertised, but the site is in the UK. I'd love to get mine done!

Bob,

I'm not familiar with Zircotec, but give Jet-Hot Coatings a look as they may use this as well.
They've been doing exhaust coatings longer than anyone in the industry I believe.
I've used them numerous times over the years for headers that still look great.

Thanks for the lead! I'll check them out today! Zirtec only does the coatings at their place in the UK....

Hi Agentx!
I live in France but I passed directly by the English site, I knew afterward that there was a French distributor, but of the blow I so avoided an intermediary. It is a very serious company but it is necessary to be very patient. They answer well emails. We can also see some projects on their FB.
