Not yet as I am having the wheels refurbished and anodised, so I've got a 4 week wait <img border="0" alt="[crying]" title="" src="graemlins/crying.gif" />

Feel I should wait until I drive the damn thing before making formal introductions on the 993 board!

Did your friend in Singapore sell his?

If you are in to high performing air cooled NA engines for drage race, I know a guru here in Stockholm that made a 3.2 Carrera engine produce 425 bhp, with the aid of Weber 46 carburettors among other tweaks.

I was trying to figure out what this car is in the Blackhawk Collection when I stumbled onto this thread. I will add my 'Wow' to your collection Brian (glad to see another Brian with the proper spelling ). Here is the car for sale.

BB,
Can you tell me about the originality of #004 compared to your car? Is the interior the same? I will be going to Monterey in a few weeks and I wanted to look at several of the Porsches they have for sale, but I knew nothing about these 964 C4 RS cars before reading this thread. Thanks again.

PS:
I count 6 '73 Carrera RS cars in your collection, outstanding! Please take the time to put them in the Carrera RS registry. You can do so with complete anonimity if you choose.

Great Pictures Bill, thanks!

If that's a C4 - where do they house all the hydraulic hardware for the differential locks - I don't see the ABS unit, solenoid block, or accumulator - is the 4wd system that much different from the standard C4? I've heard it mentioned that it is the 959 type of 4wd system - how is this different than a standard C4's system of hydraulic actuated differential locks?

And, are those brake bias controls on the center dash - looks like two big silver dials? Looks like there might not be any ABS, either...? Is this a vacuum assisted brake setup, or hydraulic??

Fun & interesting pics...

As I study the picture some more - I can see that it looks like it is an unboosted brake setup, utilizing two master cylinders (can see the dual reservoirs also - or maybe that is for the clutch yet a third reservoir can be seen below the fuel tank?).

My assumption is that the 4x4 system uses mechanical limited slip differentials for the rear and the center differentials? Is that how the 959/953 type of AWD tranny differs mechanically from the production C4's (excluding ratios)?

Interesting also that there is no idle solenoid valve - how is the idle managed? Also, that an aluminum intake manifold is used versus a plastic...

The ISV IS there, Garrett, right at the top of the engine pics.

The more you look the more odd things pop up. No ABS or boost, twin m/c and the lever betwen the seats adjusts f/r brake bias. The twin dash ***** are to adjust AWD bias f/r & L/R. The aluminum manifold was used inthe year of manufacture

Ahh yes, I see - it looks different than mine...

Those are cool pictures - I thought the red lever was the "emergency brake" that clamped off the hydraulic line... if not where is that?
