1978 Exhaust System Layout/Engine Type

Vehicle Information: Year: 1978; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.3L; B & B Exhaust; Total Mileage: 71,500;

I am planning on returning my 930 to the original exhaust system, which I still have, but I am trying to determine the engine type and exhaust layout. I cannot figure out if it is a 930/51, 52, 53 etc. It is a 1978 US spec model 3.3 L 930. I have the set of Factory workshop manuals. How do I determine the layout of the exhaust on my car. Is it the number on the engine? Thanks.Jim

ZDDP in motor oils

Vehicle Information: Year: 1979; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.3liter turbo, B&B intercooler; Total Mileage: 92,000;

I see alot of postings on motor oils and the reduction of ZDDP. I would like to stick to Castrol 20W50 DINO oil. Have read alot of Brad Penn recommendations on the forums. Is it still safe to use Castrol GTX 20W50 or this getting bad for my rocker arms and cams since the trend in reduction of ZDDP in motor oils? What specific (Brand name) oil additives are cost effective to add to Castrol if the oil is marginal as formulated?

I had '87 930 and was very careful to let the car idle before shut-down to let the turbine cool down. I now purchased a 993 tt. Is it recommended to use the same proceedure to shut-down this car ?
