    Not sure if you got this or not..

    Well I got the car back after nearly 3 weeks .. WP were great to deal with, basic service was done but it was still dumping too much fuel in while on boost so we decided to send away the WU regulator, injectors and fuel distributer for servicing. so yes the engine had to be dropped - it's all come back and Wayne P has done many late night runs down the freeway to sort / tune the whole car.
    It's never been right the whole time I had it, I thought it was pretty quick before !! WP says it's the fastest 930 he's ever driven, he estimated power at high 400 low 500 hp ...
    When I drove it back home I was amazed at the difference - instant power that is just plain Scary Fast ! The downside is that it's so highly tuned with a 1.5 bar spring it needs an Octane Booster when attending drive days etc .. No Biggy.
    But overall very happy ! Breaks traction in second gear in a straight line easily .. !
    Now for the bill ... 4700.00 But I was expecting that ..

    thanks for the feedback, sounds like i'll have to do something similar! also got a friend having trouble with his 3.6 vram conversion, might send him their way too.

    yeah, mine is supposed to have a 1 bar spring but i haven't been able to test that - stock guage stops at 0.7 bar. has a flowed K29 on it according to receipts (i also puled the bumper off and it looks pretty big) and a pretty effective exhaust so i *think* it's down to tune, or the turbo needs a rebuild.
    sounds like we have somewhat similar setups, would love to know how you go/what you find with yours!

    The Previous Owner knew nothing about the car so was no help to me about mods etc - I know it has a 1 bar spring and an aftermarket exhaust but other than that not sure - hoping when they service they can tell me more - mine is also a 965 motor - so should arealy have the K27 Turbo etc ...

    I've got mine in at Wayne Park today for a service so I'll see what they say too - wouldn't mind a few more ponies myself ...

    hey mate, on the southside - also had my car looked after through T&D, but my mother's 964 3.3 turbo is down on power at the moment.. haven't had a chance to take it in yet, been looking around at other people's 930's etc to see what they've done to it!

    Thanks for the info - could I have the number for the mobile mechanic you use, I'm sure it will come in handy. Ive been speaking to fishcop a lot, he is also going to have a look at the car once its roadworthied... Where in Brissy are you?
