Scroll to bottom of article

This is a great driving car. It has nearly perfect balance. Equal weight front to back, right to left. You will not be overwhelmed by HP (160 ponies), but you will be seduced by how comfortable this car is to drive at speed. Balance is the word that comes to mind. I find driving this car intoxicating, itís that much fun. This car comes alive above 4K rpm. And, lets face it, at this price, with the maintenance this car has had, it should be tons of fun for a long time.

I replaced the soft fuel lines, including line from the fuel supply to the injector fuel rail.
I removed the fuel injectors, sent them to Witch Hunter Performance for rebuild and flow test (Results Below). Witch Hunter strips the paint off the injectors as part of their cleaning process. I painted mine Red to match the silicone hoses.

Replaced all vacuum hoses with red silicone hoses. There is one stock hose (from the ICV to the J Boot) custom hose from Porsche. I was so impressed with the factory hose clamps ( Oetiker) that I sourced and used them in the rebuild.
I ďnotchedĒ the dipstick bracket. The dipstick tube has an O ring at the bottom where it enters the engine block (Pix below). This O ring is often overlooked and not replaced. This can result in a loss of vacuum. (Old Porscheís seem to be sensitive to vacuum). As you can see, mine was deteriorating. By notching the tube bracket, it can be removed and the O ring replaced without taking apart the top of the engine.

I cleaned the distributer, replaced the cap, rotor, and spark plugs (old ones looked fine, evenly colored, no deposits).

DME replaced with: Focus 9 Solid State Relay with Pump Prime. First, itís nice to have a solid state relay. When you turn the key to the run position, prior to turning to start the engine, the relay starts the fuel pump for 3 seconds. This pressurized the fuel rail and makes starting easier. The engine does not have to spin to get pressure up.

THE GOOD:,
1 of 500 in US (aprox 500 additional cars world wide)
Has medallion on dash
Correct light weight fabric on doors
Factory increased Compression Ratio
Factory Increase Torque
M030 Suspension
Seats in car NOT original. (I have one original seat that came with car. Itís in poor shape). The drivers seat in the car has been recovered in cloth, not original.
Everything works (unless described below). Headlights pop up and work, turn signals, fan, radio (I have original faceplate), gauges, switches, all exterior lights work.
THE NOT SO GOOD
A/C dosenít work (frankly, Iíve had multiple Porscheís and the A/C didnít work in any 30 year old car).
This car is no garage queen. Frankly, I find that acceptable, I donít worry about parking lots.
The dash has the usual cracks. The clock does not work.
The keys have a difficult time in the ignition. I have a replacement lock and key set that comes with the car. I wanted to install it when I cleaned the grounds for the dash lights. The dash lights donít work, but all other and other console lights work. (in old cars, when I see electrical problems, I think: grounds...just me.)
Currently the car has an indwelling key. (My brother-in-law took a working key and made a top that looks like it came from the factory. This key stays in the ignition and always works, Removing the key will result in time to fiddle with the lock to get the key past lock. The fix is relatively easy R/R, parts are included with car:

So, thatís it. Great driver, good bones, and cheap!
