Early AC mounting brackets, plate steel vs. later cast aluminum.

Shame the intercooler is pretty dinged up, but a really good aluminum craftsman can fix that up a lot. Or maybe Ruf still has access to the cores and can weld a new core in it.

No recirculating BOV -- Ruf never fit them, and the factory didn't use them on the 930S engines, either, even though they fit them on the 1986 944 Turbo. Highly recommended as the early K27s and K29s had standard threads on the compressor shaft and the compressor nut can come loose if the compressor backspins as it is forcibly slowed down with the throttle shut. It comes off, then gets ingested by the compressor... Easy to retrofit a BOV, recommended.
