    Yes....by all means....port it. That will help with the "G Forces" when doing a tight corner. GUARANTEED!! Also backbore it!!!

    Don't neglect cryo-freezing, too. And choke tubes for the tailpipes. I'd suggest Improved Modified.

    If you install a release shifter, you won't flinch when she comes out of the hole.

    I would think cryo-freezing the exhaust system would be first concern. When you mash the trigger on this baby, a large volume payload is exiting. i would go with cylinder for degree of choke on exhaust.

    You might consider punching louvers in the hood - this was the rage in the 1950's and 60's. Had just about as much enhancement of car performance as porting has on shotgun barrels. Basically a cosmetic/customizing technique on the car or gun. A buddy had 4 rows of louvers punched into the hood of his family's 1956 Oldsmobile - got lots of oooohhs and aaaahhs at the local drive-ins. Regards, Ed

    "Louvers are absolutely needed on some Bonneville cars to release air pressure building up under the car at higher speeds. This is critical on trunk lids on '53 Hemi-powered Studebakers that run over 200 mph, for example. Many of these altered coupes are blessed with upwards of 1500 flywheel horsepower on 50% methanol and 50% nitromethance.

    The only Porsches that benefitted from porting were the flathead models that ran the 59 A-Block Ford engines in the late 60's. The Porsches powered by Ardun-headed 59 A-Block Ford engines did not require porting.

    Modern Porsches do require prom flashing with a more aggressive fuel map to obtain maximum performance. Porsches may and should also be used to flash at the high school prom for maximum utility, depending upon the integrity of the father-son relationship involved."

    With that tight suspension you'd better check out "bump buster" or would that now be "rump buster"

    Porting aside, please remember the Cardinal Rule of Porsche:

    If you can't pronounce it, you shouldn't own it.

    I think its funny when some actually post a serious reply to a tongue-n-cheek thread.

    I would use number 8 octance fuel over 7.5, you will get performance. I would also you 1 1/8 oz of oil, because you know it must be better if there is more of it.

    I think you'll find the Porsche is already ported, plus relieved and polished. It's done at the factory. So the shade tree mechanics will stay away:)

    None of that stuff will work unless you've got the upgraded chrome dipstick.

    Don't forget to lenghten the piston stroke, to prevent back firing.

    Also make sure you get some nice bumper stickers, and curb feelers

    Gansta Walls would also look good

    At least have it overbored and "tuned", just like some would do to a new Seitz.
