2.8 needs rebuild this winter (some stuff already in works):

Bore: 101 (likely - stock bores are scored and still need machined, staying Alusil)
Stroke: S2 crank (is this the 88 as mentioned in other posts here?)
Pistons: Wossner (to be ordered for alusil use)
Rods: Carrillo
Block: 87 2.5
Head: 87 2.5, 944S 16v
Turbo: VR stage 4
Engine Management: VR (93oct mostly, want 100oct tune and may try e85 down the road)
Other: probably add the Saiko-michi oil catchcan, need a Tial 38mm, need a new muffler, need venturi-delete

A bunch, many flavors! 8v, 16v, 104mm, 105mm, 106mm and one 108mm.
2.5 blocks, S2 blocks, 968 blocks.
Mostly Electromotive management

BTW - here is my 'Black Friday' picture - lots of stuff showed up on Friday. 4 TecGTs (2 going to 3.1 engines), 2 sets of pistons (one set is for 8v 3.1), a Vitesse turbo, a rather fancy dry sumpump and some other odd and ends.

Hmmm....might be able to make a '12 days of christmas' song out of that!
