My build will be similar to Nux, 3.2SS as I am actually kinda cleaning off the shelf with items collected over the years so 98mm p/c, fresh set of flowed twin plug heads, and 40mm TWM ITBs. The only thing missing is a proper set of cams.

Thx
Don't you think 40mm ITB's will be too small for that application?

Good catch and I do think they will be to small. However, I also have a set of 46mm ITB's that are slated for another project. So if I'm lucky, I can run it with these until there are funds available or I can trade for another set of 46's.

I'm still considering staying with 3.0. I have both the original 95mm SC cylinder and also 95mm Carrera cylinders (Kolbenschmidt). My local machine shop guy - who has been working with Porsche engines for a lifetime - does not really like the idea of a 98mm bore and a re-plate of the old Carrera cylinders. He strongly recommends a new complete C/P set which is mucho dineros.

Apparently, he's afraid os heating issues and reliability in stressed situations (track time etc).

What are your thoughts on that?
