Mesa, California performed the following; removed the clutch

With the 911's future assured, 1983 saw the launch of a replacement
for the successful SC series. It was the MY 1984 911 3.2 Carrera,
reviving the Carrera name for the first time since 1977. The 911
3.2 Carrera was the last iteration in the original 911 series, with
all subsequent models featuring new body styling with new brake,
electronic and suspension technologies.
A new, higher-displacement motor, a 3.2-liter horizontally opposed
flat 6 cylinder, was utilized. At the time, Porsche claimed it was
80% new. The new swept volume of 3,164 cc was achieved using the 95
mm (3.7 in) bore (from the previous SC model) combined with the
1978 Turbo 3.3 crankshaft's 74.4 mm (2.9 in) stroke. In addition,
higher domed pistons increased the compression ratio from 9.8 to
10.3:1 (although only 9.5:1 for the US market). New inlet manifold
and exhaust systems were fitted. The 915 transmission was carried
over from the SC series for the first three model years.
