    What year is your 3.2? I had the opportunity to drive a Eurospec '86 a while back, and loved the thing. It basically looked exactly like your avatar.

    Mine's an '87. Yeah, they didn't change much from '84 to '89, and even the "SC" models before that looked about the same.

    The notable differences between an '86 & '87 was a reprogrammed engine control computer (a few more hp) and a different transmission. Up to '86 they used the 915 transmission, after that it was the more robust G50 transmission.

    The Euro-spec cars (also called RoW for "rest of world", i.e. non-US) are the way to go if one can, as they don't have the cat & low-emission program of the US-spec cars, and it is a slightly higher compression engine, all of which results in a notable difference in hp.

    However, many of us have changed the chip, gone to the euro pre-muffler, & etc. to get back most of the hp that US emissions regs took away.

    Hey, owners of older 911's & wrx folks have a lot in common - both groups are "tuner oriented". It just the price of the mods that are different
