Hard to beat the sound of MFI on a NA car.

In the turbo world you just cant beat EFI.
Not a cheap conversion for the pre 993tt cars like mine.

I have no idea since I havent looked into it too much but with an engine designed for CIS it is costly to replace it. There is more then just fuel stuff, there are internals too

I had an australian six with 3x55mm Webbers.
The sound at 7000rpm was great.
It made 300hp with only 10:1 comp.
Had a 100hp NOS kit on it that gave you 400hp.
Not bad for an old push rod 3.2L 1960s thing.
However that NOS was a bit much.
As they say in Italy "spliti the block"

Nitrous is fun on a turbo. Can you say no lag.

The 2.7RS has some lag due to the cams- when you are below about 4000 rpm. Once you get to 4500 if you punch the throttle you are going somewhere RIGHT NOW, so you had better have it pointed in the right direction.

The throttle bodies are worn so with that and the cams it idles high and doen't like putting around town. It has headers so no thermostat control. It is set permanently lean but in a few months our mechanic is going to install a system to actuate the cold start squirters with a button. That way the warm starts will go smoother. As it is now cold starts require two or three starts before it continues running. And warm starts take a lot of cranking since the cold start squirters do not work due to the heat soak.

But as long as you keep the revs up it is a hoot!

I can't imagine what a higher compression RSR motor would be like.

Just ordered me a Chemex coffee maker and some filters.... Been playing with the poor boy way of that and it makes a quick good cup of coffee. The chemex filters will provide a much purer cup....

I never really acquired the taste for coffee. Plus, I used to drink caffinated diet soda frequently. Then I realized I would get caffine withdrawl headaches almost every day since it had been about 24 hours since I last had a soda.

So I feel much better now without caffine (for the most part, I will still occasionally have a caffinated soda if it is late at night and I need to stay up to drive or something).

Them RSR engines are awesome!
Said it before, the GT3 I drove was a nice engine at high RPM.
But a a bit yawny for me.

yawny? You mean it needs to be revved a lot? Or you mean it is boring?

Booooring.

Its a great engine.
Its just so underpowered for the rest of the car.
The older 911s are a good engine to car combo.
The new ones I have driven feel underpowered, thats how good they are.
All this adds up to boring for me.
And yes, I drove it hard.
