well story is i had been looking for about 8 months for a turbo then i happened upon this on on a tiny advert on rennlist ...........

she was sitting at a garage called paddockracing who modify and race 911's , it was a customers car which was in for a front mount oil cooler install but had deciced to sell so they agreed to advertise it for him , been sitting about six months !

got the docs , cert of auth , reciepts/dyno graphs all sent over plus talked to the garage owner who knew the cars history ........ and the deal was done !

importing took a while as it missed the first boat , then US customs decided to take it off a second boat for a random inspection , finally got a third boat 2 months later ! , got it to felistowe , same nightmare with customs ....... held for scan ! unbeliveable luck ! , then got it transported to liverpool.

met guy with car at liverpool docks , quick trip to halfrauds to buy new battery ! ....... onto boat and home !

bit of work for mot , fog lights /indicators/sidelights etc etc then she passed first go ! , now taxed/insured and on the road

whole process prob took about 4 months but normall could be done in 2 i would say Cool Laughing


basic specs are

- haltech pistons /rods etc
- 3.2 heads with twin plugs
- haltech 3.4L conversion
- custom intercooler
- all mechanical ignition etc replaced by programmable ECU etc
- custom headers
- big single turbo (greddy ??) not sure make yet !
- 1 bar
- rebuilt gearbox
- rebuilt suspension all round
- running 315/45/17 s Thumb
- genuine factory flatnose
- black leather /black paint Thumb
- dynoed at 485bhp on 91 octane at 0.9bar Thumb

gonna get a boost controller and a re-map this winter thumbsup :shock:

animal to drive ! but hey its fun Mr. Green

thanks for the comments guys

johnny

thumbsup

saw the exhaust and thought (memories) this isn't a stock turbo ... then the intercooler Question and 485 bhp !!!!!!!!!!!

Did it start life as a turbo or was it an engine conversion? God knows how it gets to that power output at just 0.9bar?

Fuchs would be good but I'd be more worried about keeping it on the road . Have fun worship

I'm not usually a 930 fan but that looks amazing. Well worth the 4 month wait imo.
