  1. As opposed to leaves gathering on the radiator and blocking airflow..? Haha
  2. 993 is a sledgehammer but with prices being what they are, you’d have to really love one to get it over a cheaper/more livable/faster 996 turbo?
  3. Yep! The cup cams from memory barely touch peak hp at all- they seem directly aimed at the midrange. I have a dim memory of cam upgrades being more difficult in 993 but not sure that is actually the case.
  4. The laziness (often a bit doughy in the midrange) is something even the 964 3.6’s can have, use the cup cams, exhaust and lightened flywheel to liven it up. i have that combo in the SC and the lack of weight helps it again.
  5. same. 964 with the old architecture is the 'last' aircooled for me, and with a motor more happy with modifications. 993 is good but a bit of laziness from porsche in that it really should have been watercooled by then. new platform, same old engine. 964 c2, or 996 Gt3 for me. have kept the SC for 12 years, the 964 turbo for 11 years, have only had the longhood for two. unfortunately sold the 996 GT3 early on. the guy who sold me the SC bought a 993 to replace it. he messaged me every six months trying to get the SC back..

    solid no from me especially with the amber indicator light in the same housing. maybe if that was clear and you used a stronger yellow.
