Flushed the trans today and WOW Swepco 201 made a huge difference shifting. Also found a nice surprise stamped on trans. Factory LSD. Confirmed it by spinning the wheels in the air. Is this rare or did most 915's come equipped with them? Threw on some magnetic stone guards, & wired the fog lights to work with the light switch in the first position with the fog light on. Up next is euro ride height!

This car is nothing but a BLAST. Its now my daily (weather permitting) in Indiana. I didn't get the 911 hype before being a 944 turbo owner but now I completely understand it. Heres some fun I've had with it.

The addiction sets in quickly and you become a lifer. I recall your first post, good to see an update.

I installed turbo tie rods, steering rack spacers, lowered all four corners evenly, some spring plate and suspension bushings later and this thing handles so well! Looks far better than the 4x4 status it was before. Some of my own stickers in the windows and I'm working on making this car perfect for myself. Just trying to update this post every once in a while. Ive been driving this car 7 days a week and commuting to chicago (100 miles roundtrip) once a week and its been nothing but awesome to me. ONLY problem is that I have had 4 no start problems, each after long drives, all caused by the fuel pump fuse blowing. Will be posting a separate thread about it later this week when I get back into town.

Great find, great story! I used to not be a fan of Guards Red but now I really like it, especially on Targas. I'd also lose the tail...

Thank you! Photography is what pays the bills. Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I've read, I can't "just unbolt" the tail? I read before that they drill holes in the decklid to mount it.

Thanks! I also said I'd never want a targa, let alone a guards red one, but this was way to sweet to pass up on. So in love with it now. A ducktail will be added in the future

I'm going to disagree with my pal Sal and Kurt, I think the Carrera tail looks great on your car - better than a duck would and waaayyyyyy better then no tail.

Nobody ever answered your lsd question. Most cars did NOT get one in this era. Maybe 15-20% of them got them new.

Enjoying your thread and journey.

Hope you use jack stands as a safety measure. Dont see one in your last photo.

Jack stands in every corner. That photos was while I was reindexing the rear torsion bars, the jack was under there for undoing the struts from the trailing arm :-)

Tail or No Tail

The tail fits your SC quite well both in appearance & function. I run a Duck because I have a long hood with RS front bumper (period correct look). Ride height adjustment helped the tail do the job and not make the front light at speed. Make yourself happy and you already love what you have.

My starter gave out a couple weeks ago (in my driveway thankfully). Finally got a break from traveling for work so I had the car up and down wth a new starter in an hour. Top bolt was fairly easy to get to, even with the car only about a foot or so in the air. Being small has its perks while working on cars :-) bench tested the old one, totally shot. You can't see it, but the car is on jack stands in all 4 corners before someone tries to say something.. Jack and ramp were there for safety.

ALSO put my new MoMo prototipo in with a leather horn button. Love it!!!

Sounds like that fuel pump is getting hot in its old age & is blowing the fuse on restart. Some check resistance and look at it as an indicator of when a component is on its way out. Given its age, why not just throw a new pump at it for the peace of mind... it's bound to give out sooner or later.
I think you need to go back to the guy you bought it from & take him for a ride... Maybe he'll offer to buy it back from you for $11,000.00 ... an easy $1,000 profit

I have a new fuel pump, filter, and relay in the frunk ready to get installed when I get back to town! I did check the resistance on the pump, it is on its way out.
