That’s a $4000 car, maybe. You don’t want to spend a lot on paint.

Go to the website dipyourcar.com. Spent $400 on a flat colored rubber coating. Sand it, paint. Should last 2-3 years.

Might...

Cgarr on here did mine and many others... cost about 1/5 of that. Reused the valves though. Think 1 was replaced.

Why?

You will get very different reading based on where you place the sensor, 30 degree difference moving in 2 inches. Also depends on airflow.

If it helps you, you can get dual thermoprobes...

Weird. I don’t have that but about every 2 weeks I get my access “blocked” for 24 hours... happens randomly, irritating. Emailed pelican, no response. Anyone getting that?

Simple math...

Take a $30,000 Porsche....

Add a $25,000 rebuild to it...

$30,000 + $25,000 =x

My guess is “x” is slightly over the $30,000 you started with.

I must be looking at it wrong?

Turbo inlet is by the left rear bumper, obviously. It’s completely uncovered. Inhaled air and blows into intercooler, which pressurized the intake. The intake is...

Why doesnt turbo inlet have filter?

The turbo on a 930 doesn't have a turbo air inlet filter...

Haven't seen it discussed much...

Doesn't this cause long term issues with engine wear?

Not much space to put on a filter either...

Check all the guides, and coupler between the back seats...

Also, how does one use such a tall geared transmission in an early car?

1st gear is good to 60mph in the 930.

I kind of figured a pro would take at least a month. I know you are working on multiple motors at the same time. You have the tools, the know how, and the experience.

How long did it REALLY take to rebuild your motor diy?

I have been working on mine for over 2 years... not every day, not every weekend. Simply working on it when life allows... itís taking forever.
