I'm kidding. Sorta.
My dream has been to own a coupe. Here for only two years, '85 and '86 all nonturbo 900S models. I now have found one.... talk me into/out of it.
The car: 1985 900S Coupe. 5-speed. Silver (rose quartz?) exterior, tan cloth interior with sunroof. Peeling paint on hood/trunk/roof. Mileage unknown. New-ish clutch, has sat undriven for the past year (won't start. dead battery, more?)
First off, let it be known that this wouldn't be a restoration. For all you purists, YES that means throwing the bullnose parts in the trash and fitting a full SPG kit & 87+ facelift, lowered on cool wheels (shelbys...maybe) repainted in silver with colormatched SPG panels. Yum.
Now, from research I see that the '85 900S notch was a 8-valve. How... charming. Can I slap a 16v head onto this motor, or do I have to swap motors? Also I have most all parts to do a 16vt conversion: turbo, head, intercooler, piping & hoses, distributor, throttle body, minus the wiring harness, ex. manifold, etc.
So Show I have covered, it's the GO I'm concerned about. How dog-slow is a nonturbo 8v? Naww... don't answer that.
Supposedly the hood is a crappy repaint (no car fire).
Opinions please. Talk me into/out of it.
