It is a folding wing 87.

Looking down from the head side.

It would appear so.

From the WKD 493 421 '87 Spec book:

I never could find out exactly when the cut off date and number was.
got to be a good thing for a blower build up.

Most folks said if it was a folding wing, it most likely was a squirter block, now I know for sure.

I will get it for you tomorrow.
From what i understand these blocks a bit rare.
For me the bigger issue is why Porsche decided that it was not such a good idea.

Mines a folding wing with a vin 1305# and engine sn 00664. Though has later style plastic filler neck, ribbed intake, and solid fuel rail mounts.

I've read and read but nothing definitive about the folding wing.

Mine has the plastic filler neck and I think it has the ribbed intake.
I am going to have to take of picture of the intake and let the experts here tell me.

Also IIRC, when I first started wondering about if mine was a squirter block it was just outside the "Known" units, but I could be wrong about that.

If you ask me, it was because the Marketing Weenies at PAG were worried that someone might actually race a 928 and beat up on their favorite ***-engined slot cars.

I'm going to bet that your intake has 4 of the "bonded rubber buffers" to which the fuel rails bolt.

They would not do that, never have, never will, the Cayman is just slow, if you want to go fast, buy a 911, simple.

I don't know, heck I am not even sure I know where my fuel rails and intake are after this much time.
