There are a lot of differences from 1978 USA to 1987 Euro. The USA '78 has the racecar brakes and Euro engine laden with a horrible exhaust and smog equipment. Strip off the smog crap, swap to Euro exchangers and you bump up from 265hp to 300hp. I had one of those for 15 years and prefer it to the later model USA 930's. The later Euro 930 is pretty similar to it's USA counterpart. The J-pipe exhaust is better than the '78 and creature comforts improved. Really depends on what you like.
