$14K to make the car "right". Owner was willing to budget $25K to have engine work done alone. We just saved you $11K!! Where and when is the all expenses paid party you going to be giving?

Get rid of that "type one beep beep horn" ASAP!!

Seriously, glad to hear all was relatively well. Perhaps you have your shop tackle the clutch and you get to know the car a little more by taking on some of the smaller, less critical projects.

Good luck with it all and congrats on finding some peace of mind through the PPI and for starting a thread which has grown at over a page per day!

Euro ride height. I told him I thought I needed new shocks. He said my shocks are in great shape. The ride height is the reason for the ride and handling.


I really like the height and stance of the car. It might work in southern city's where the roads are smooth.

So the good news is that your motor is fine. The bad news is that is a lot of nickel and diming on a many smaller issues that can wait or can be done by you. Are you interested in working on your car?

If it were me, I would be doing most of those things myself. I couldn't pay someone to replace lights, switches and many other things if I had even the most rudimentary mechanical skills. I assume you aren't replacing your clutch and a lot of those other items are good "while you're in there" items that should be done at the same time, but maybe get those major things done and then drive it and fix the other stuff as you go.

You should find out what clutch they are putting in. Looks like the stock Porsche part number on the quote. Turbokraft sells the Sachs lightweight clutch that is worlds better than the original and a lot lighter.

Yes I've neglected a lot of things for the past 10 years. Life got in the way. Really a lot of things that happen in your life that just make you sit and say damn.. ain't life a *****...

Anyhow this is my mid life crisis.

I'm fixing everything on the car. I gave him the go ahead to fix every damn thing he can find!

I'll never find a better mechanic. My 30s are in my past. The 930 remains.

Tony, all ribbing aside, you sound excited about the work that is going to get done, so that is a good thing (obviously).

PS, my 40s are almost behind me (different than Norm who likes to situate himself behind Paul )!

Wow, i've been working on a list like that for the last few years now and would not trade the experience for all of your money. This is why most of us own these cars, right?

Getting ready to drop $20,000 on engine overhaul

Got my 930 back Saturday.

The repair bill came to $24,000.
But I was only charged $19,700 as we had a verbal agreement to call me if the bill exceeded $19,000 and he lost track of the hours logged in his shop / the parts list kept growing as at one time more than one mechanic was doing different projects on the car.

He's a stand up guy. The total project took over a 120 man hours but I was only charged for 80.

The car drives amazing. Its not the same car.
Handles tight (bushings replaced) rides smooth.

Engine/Clutch/Pedal operation/Handling are so vastly improved its almost hard to believe not only it's the same car but that a 930 could drive this well. These cars really are quite good when properly sorted!

Starting the engine it now idles at 800 rpm instead of 1200 rpm.

Wow does the rebuilt pedal assembly and new flywheel,ring gear,clutch cable,engine mounts,clutch assembly operated with amazing smoothness.

Widows all work perfect and are very rapid in operation.

I have a fully functional NOS blaupunkt CR 3001H. Something I never had before. A fully working radio. What a change!

Brand new H4s are amazing and beautiful you'll see in the pictures below.

The above it not even 1/10 of the work done but those are the ones that I get most excited about.

Car drives unbelievably good. I mean unbelievable. I'm going to say it again unbelievable.

Like new.

On to a disappointment though..

I got a HUGE rock chip underneath my brand new drivers side a H4..

Yes now I'm kinda sick.. $10,000 + paint job ruined. That's what happens when you drive on the free way..

I'm not sure what to do about it. I put touch up paint over it. I don't want to take it to a body shop as I don't want my 930 laying around in a body shop.

Yes I'm kinda heart sick about this one..

I can't see the chip. I guess that's a good hint though I do empathize with they way you feel about it. Don't get hung up on it. It ca be fixed later. Enjoy your freshened beast!

get a proper suntek clear bra protection on the car and all of the "target" areas. trust me, you will be able to drive the car and sleep at night.

don't spend a moment thinking about it...do it and do not drive another mile w/o.
