But have to remember they were a nervous 320hp which my 3.6 is a street able 320 has stiff bilsteens etc and is not really comfortable, so I guess a 400 hp wild look ferrari stock is ok, in the end it doesn't matter high hp low hp as long as people are enjoying and being involved in the Porsche cars I'm ok with their hot rods

Who did you email? That is probably including wheels and rubber as well.

But how much does your car weigh? I bet the torque/lbs ratio over the entire curve was better on the IROC RSR than your car.

Have you all watched Leh Keen's video? The sound of that Porsche with that body kit is balance/equilibrium/harmony in my eyes and ears. I'd imagine that is a 3.6 but am completely guessing. If you've got a better thought on what motor is in the Keen RWB, please post up. I'd swap that motor into my 83 911c in a heartbeat with a RWB conversion similar to the black one


or even Pandora one in black minus the FFTEC Turbo.



On a side note, if I were going to start a grocery list of items for just such a conversion, these iForged wheels would very much be on that list.

versus his typical fanfare which are still pretty impressive even sitting rubberless

My car weighs about 2250 if you have never driven an early car with a 3.6 and a 915 you might be surprised, I'm sure the early motor is a Great motor, and I am really sure my twin plug headed fuel injected motor runs really well, remember I'm not saying my motor is a race motor

If you really want one.... Porsche 911 Rauh Welt RWB Los Angeles 1 Car 993 | eBay


But if I was blowing that amount of cash, I'd want my own personal one made.

For all of the purist naysayer's, my opinion is that if you feel you should have that much say into what I do with MY car, then you should at least have your checkbook out and make an offer to buy it.

Otherwise, you can expect that the car will turn out the way I want, whether it's a concours restoration, a Japanese body-style, or a hot rod with a Chevy V8 engine.

The fact is, I admire them all as expressions of ingenuity. Ferdinand Porsche made a personal statement with his designs and I think that he wouldn't be surprised that so many people express their own personal statement with his cars 30+ years later.

If you don't want to hear other people's opinions about something, don't post it on a forum. It's just that simple. If you post something on a forum, expect people to express an opinion that might not match up with your own.

Checkbook? Yeah, right......

It is your car....so do what you want to it. But, if you show us what you did to it, don't get indignant if people don't like it and tell you so.

Touche, Winders! You made an excellent point. If you post it on the forum, you can probably expect some praise for being creative, but at least an equal amount of bashing if you don't go the 'purist' route.

that can be said to both parties. The person posting up has opened themselves up to critics, but then it's only fair the critics also open themselves up to being judged as well.
