Also, I didn't realise that it's possible to re-profile for more torque... I see threads on the older engines using 964 cams for more performance...
Their web site shows $890 to refurbish ( "hard weld" ) and regrind . . .

We were looking for more torque to compete at the race start with the BMWs that generally have more torque than our Porsches with a same size engine. So far, the investment has paid off . . .
