Stock ones?? or ?????

I did 300 Wheel Hp with them, but the engine was not stock.... I'm guessing with a turbo they will do waaaaaay more.

I understand why you feel the way you do. But you are wrong about the performance envelope. A new mustang weighs as much as my pickup truck. It's incorrect to lump old 911s in with those antique cars...

A Honda SI wit a 6 speed is a fine commuter car. It actually doesn't take much effort to make an aircooled 911 better in every metric except creature comfort. It just takes money.

It's somewhat linear to my understanding of it. It's been a minute since i've looked at a twin plug timing chart, but 28* sounds pretty aggressive. Off the cuff, I think the stock 964 timing is...

If it's a single plug engine, common wisdom would suggest you need the 110 octane. Lots of factors to consider, including what fuel the ignition map is tuned for. If your car was set up on 110, and...

Seems like the geriatrics on here are a bit sensitive. If I wait about 15 more years, the problem will take care of itself.

I DID finance a good chunk of a GT3, and i have since paid it off. I just think its a point of arrogance / jealousy for some of the older guys on here that have a 911 clear of financing. They waited...

In reality it would be MUCH smarter to finance an air cooled 911 as a second or third vehicle that *may retain a majority of their value, vs an F150 that I'm 100% sure will be worth next to nothing...

I would do the compression check after a while, but I wouldn't be losing sleep over it. Worst case you're out one piston, one cylinder, one ring pack, and some gaskets. But I think that's unlikely.

I've been on a Denso spark plug binge for a few years. I don't remember what is in my standard 964 3.6 engine, but I think they're a "regular" denso iridium. That engine doesn't seem to need anything...
