Getting ready to drop $20,000 on engine overhaul

Ok I'm 50/50 this.

You guys have got me thinking twice.

Some things I left out..

Firstly my mechanic is truly one of the most knowledgeable 930 specialist in the Midwest.

He had rebuilt many 930 and few 934/ 935s.

Extremely knowledgeable with these cars I mean he has been a 930 specialist for 30 years +.

He has known this very car for 25 years. Rebuilt the transmission on this car replaced the clutch, head studs R&R the ENTIRE csi fuel injection system, R&R the Brakes, ect this car has $21,000 in receipts from him since the late 1980s.

Ok why I want to do this? I'm 40 years old and might have the car another 8/10 years. I want to enjoy it as it was meant. To be driven like a porsche 930.

My biggest concern right now are the JUNK GLYCO rod bearings. He is not going to use GLYCO as he stated they are very poorly made and not suitable. He is instant on using ARP bolts.

Anyhow I want my engine to sound as good as my car looks. I don't mind saying I have a very very nice ROW 930. It took me 20 years and $$$$$. With this engine overhaul my car will essentially be totally R&R'd and it can be enjoyed as a 930 that has been driven off the showroom. Which is what I always dreamed of.
