    Aircooled cars also respond really well to exhaust upgrades, so do that and even if it’s still not a monster it will sound really good and you can use both the carbs and exhaust when you build or source a 3L

    It’s probably better that you have a slow one now because you can learn how to drive it without getting yourself into too much trouble

    ^that's pretty much what I'm thinking as well. This car is not and will never be a show car, its driver quality.

    The motor honestly seems pretty healthy, so as long as the compression numbers are all good I'm sure I can get a nice chunk of change for it. Even 77 2.7 core motors are going for a stupid amount now.

    Really not too sure what I want to do with it. I really just want a reliable 911 that I can cruise in. Maybe the easiest way to get around that is just AAA lmao

    Yep. As far as I know, the big bumper ‘74, 5, 6 had the 2.7. It is NOT the badass Carrera 2.7 from the ‘73 - completely different motor. It had thermal reactor exhaust for emissions, so it had heat problems, and it had problems with head studs pulling out of the block. But...most all of these had those issues fixed long ago. As Nader says, it originally had the 3.0 SC motor, which was a good one. So someone blew it up and found a used 2.7 or some similar story.

    Fork out like $3k and put some carbs on it. That might wake it up a little... also I’ve wanted a Porsche forever but between my E30 and my Datsun I’m kinda liking basic front engine, RWD inline motors haha

    Ugh, those engines weren't Porsche's best effort. Weird putting that in an SC.

    The good news is that you make any air-cooled 911 into an absolute weapon. Or just more fun. The cars are easy to work on and parts from later years swap in and out, but they're expensive.

    There's a wealth of info out there by guys who've made the improvements to the 2.7. Look into it. OTOH, the "middies" are escalating in value, so there might be a chance you could sell the engine and reinstall the correct 3.0 without losing much in the process. Engine swaps in 911s are relatively easy.
