He connected everything above after making sure the pin connectors were wired the same in the 930-16 and 930-10 (they are) then he went below...again, I'm the gopher only...[IMG][/IMG]

The only down side was that he works so quickly and efficiently it's hard to 'learn' the process...looking good from below and am loving those SSI's[IMG][/IMG]

You can see that we took the backdated heat elements off of my 16 and put them on the 10.
We lowered the car, Howard double checked all of the connections and I fired her up after he had hand primed the fuel system from the engine bay....first crank and she sounded great.
We went for a test drive and discovered our only mistake....when the tranny was power washed the vent was re installed with the opening to the rear...that creates a 'suction' and pulled some tranny fluid out on our test run...easy fix and back on the lift for clean up.

The 'new' motor ran sweetly, sounds dif too, more of a 'whine' to it than the 16.
The 930-10 ran cool too, even in serious heat at 80-90 mph...usually below the first white line or right on it. Howard builds a nice flat six...he'd reset the valves earlier and we timed it @ 25 deg adv @ 4000 rpm by the book and it was dead on. Howard does not cut corners on anything, everything had to have new fasteners etc...great attn. to detail.
The weekend at Howards place was more of a vacation than anything, met great car guys, saw some of the town/culture and thoroughly enjoyed the whole deal. Could not have had a better experience.
The car ran flawlessly on its 1700 mile 'shake down' cruise home....and boy howdy could I feel the dif in torque/hp. I got 23 mpg (running the CO on the fat side for the higher 9.8 compression) and couldn't tell if I'd used any oil or not...I put 4 ounces in just out of habit.
BTW, after the last leg of 600 plus miles not one drop of oil on the garage floor...unreal.[IMG][/IMG]
Here is a pic after about an hour of driving, it was still cool, in the 70's...the needle moved to just below the white line when it got into the 90's.
What a great trip.
Pat

That's one of the reasons my 3.4 in Ruby cost what it did. All new parts. I even replace all the rocker bolts and cup washers, even though they're bathed in oil. I had no leaks either, which proves it is possible-considering I built the motor.

Ed,
With my 'trade in' it was really a great deal.
It does make sense to 'do it right once' rather than have to rear march and do it again. It also gives me a sense of what Howard did to the motor internally, he does not take short cuts.
I'm surprised you sold Ruby, but, I'm surprised at some of the cars I've sold (and wish I hadn't).

Fantastic story. How exciting to have a "new" engine. Did "break in" require a rev limit or varying revs?

Was already broken in and checked out by Howard. He'd built the 930-10
6k miles ago for another guy. That guy ran into another car totaling his 83 SC ROW, then found out he only had liability ins rather than full coverage.
Howard bought it back for the motor and the upgraded AC system (for one of his 911's).

Good story! The "whine" that you hear might be because your new motor has Carrera Tensioners...and the /16 didn't?

the 930-16 had them but the 930-10 had all new chains/sprockets/ramps etc. It does sound good though.

The 930-10 is a euro spec motor, as im sure you already know that i have a 84 euro carrera, and a 78 euro sc. they both had the euro spec motors, and the sc would out accelerate the carrera 3.2 every time. great little motors, great write up. happy motoring.
