Glad this went so well Dave! Enjoy the car.
Looks good! Lets do a shakedown lunch run to the Junction Bar on Mines sooner than later.

Next modification will be side Carrera script, then lots of clean up, and the headliner replacement.

OK, I guess it's time for a little sound clip. Forgive the air noise, I didn't have my external microphone set up.
I love the Wevo shifter on this car. Good precision, good feedback on shifts. It pops and gurgles nicely but that may go away soon (time to add new cats!). more importantly, the engine runs smoothly and has great pull in 2nd and 3rd gear. I got on the freeway and never even got into 4th and 5th, because 3rd is so much fun in the 70 MPH range for passing, etc. This car has a slightly lower RPM redline than my Turbo, but because of the 5 speed instead of the 4 s-peed, I feel like I don't need as long of a run in the higher rpms, because when I shift at 6000, the next gear still has me in a nice part of the power band.
People love these older Porsches for a good reason: the steering is light and direct, and the acceleration feels like more than it is. Just damn fun to drive.

You’ve just described everything I want. 911, good shifter, direct steering, good gearing. Sigh.
