The tach on my 81 row SC is stock and is the same as shown above. I always suspected cost savings as well since Porsche management didnít expect the 911 to be around much longer. It always bothered...

Thank you all for the advice. The more I hear the more a 3.2ss doesn't sound like a wise way to spend my money.

Any advice on who can port the heads while they're being rebuilt? I am planning on...

How does a 3.2SS drive compared to a 3.2...

No feedback? Did I say something wrong, LOL?

It looks like there are places that will over bore the cylinders to 98mm and re-plate them with Nikasil (EBS???). Then I would just need the pistons to...

Two weeks? Geez, that's nothing. I store mine for several months at a time with no activity and it always starts right up. Just keep a trickle charger on it and it will be just fine.

Agree 100%. I went with sport rears and hd fronts as well.

Along with being rebuildable they can be revalved should you ever make suspension changes in the future.
