    Check on Rennlist. I believe there is a fellow on there in Long Island.

    If you can make it to Westchester I can't recommend Cheech at Rennwerke highly enough.
    Have sent a number of Porsche buddies over there with terrific results.
    Right off the Cross Westchester in Elmsford.

    As above, check Rennlist o help locate quality locals.

    "stiff gas pedal, "
    Unless it has changed since you have owned it, this is often a 928 "feature." But make sure the cable isn't frayed - unhook it from the cross at the front of the engine and see how it feels when actuated by hand.


    "ac fan knob not working but a/c works and heat works when you slide it to defrost..but only fan is on high.."
    you might have magic-fan syndrome. That's usually the fan resisitor.


    "I feel doesn't down shift as it should"
    the kickdown cable likely needs adjustment.

    These should all be easy things for a 928 knoweldgeable wrench, or for a do-it-yourselfer if you so desire.

    Best luck and enjoy that '85!

    Yeah, that's a LONG damn cable from pedal to throttle. My '83 was reasonably smooth, but my '87 S4 was pretty stiff. Lubricating the pulley up under/near the air filter box helped quite a bit.
