I noticed the gearing is lower and it has an oil pump and small cooler (the cooler is missing - probably why I got the deal). Is the cooler necessary in a street application. What do you guys think about the gearing? I may loose a little acceleration but the cruising should be pretty awesome (and economical).


I'll be starting the conversion in January. Yes, I know it's easier to get a 924S to do this, but mine is a lighter car (with Euro bumpers to boot) and I like the "mechanical" controls of the heater, etc. I prefer the challenge, anyway.

I don't know about the gearing but the project sounds like it will be an impressive car when finished
