Turbo History Search - 1986 twinplug + EFI 930

Taking a long shot, but looking for any previous history or ownership of my Garnet Red 1986 930 coupe before 2015. It lived in California until about 2010, then went to New York (or New Jersey) until 2015.

Somewhere along the way it received twinplug heads with Electromotive DIS, and Motec M48 injection too. Currently has a stock 3DLZ turbo and intercooler, but upgrade parts may have been fitted once.

Looking for any prior owners, and any paper trail for the mods.

Thanks.

Well, these are pictures. Until 2017 it sported 18" turbo twist wheels, now exchanged for the proper 16x7/9 Fuchs. Somewhere it acquired those and some subtle cosmetic 993 mods, namely aero mirrors, ext. door handles, and a center brake light. Interior is Champagne and Brown leather.

Carfax indicates that it had a PPI in 2002 done by "Magoo's Automotive Consultants" in Ventura CA., now apparently out of business.

Wheels made a world of difference! Iíll pull off the redundant 993 CHMSL bar from the rear glass this spring. Car is now up in frigid Michigan.

Today I sent the records request form to the Cali DMV to see if they could name some previous owners there. Worth the $5 fee, but they will only supply names without addresses.

That's because of stalkers.I live pretty close to Ventura,the previous owner could have lived out there.
