There's too much hype over the G50/50 IMO. We've had cars with sticky street 335-18s on the back, and 700hp/600tq, and the 1987-89 G50 took it just fine when re-fitted with a good LSD and billet side cover.
Add to that the Carrera gearing is about ideal for a general purpose street/D.E. Turbo. It's nearly identical to the gearing in the last two Ruf 5-speeds we've had in the shop.
If anything, add a Turbo 5th gear for more top speed and/or lower revs when freeway cruising.
