This is kinda like climbing Everest from Sea Level...a new kind of record. It will definitely win "Most Improved"

Interesting ideas, had no idea on the mix and match engine parts? These are slow-builds as I work on them both here and there amongst paying jobs. My goal is to have my S4 stood up this summer and make a road trip to NH and back from Texas as part of a shake-down long haul semi-scenic route. I will avoid NYC at all possible costs and take the circuitous route(s) and on a leisurely pace. Every system will have been changed and rebuilt and serviced on the S4, which gives me confidence to make such a trip. I'll try to perhaps time it with any 928 events between here and there this summer, at least aim for a Cars and Coffee event somewhere?

Great seeing you at 3rd Coast and have subscribed to this thread Periodically check the stickies at the top of the homepage for more info on upcoming events. When heading east this summer, the following events may interest you. Sharks in the Mtns/early June (NC), Camp 928, mid June, (upstate NY) PVGP/mid July (Pittsburgh) and Frenzy/late Sept (VA near DC) T

Good to see you again too Tony at 3rd Coast. The first three events look appealing for sure, all in Jun and July - just what my plans seem to point to.

You might be on to something - wholesale refurbishment of old 928s that need almost everything. The piecemeal process most of us use is inefficient.

You can count on a hero's reception at Camp 928, June 13-16!

Thanks adk46! I do think there is a market for such a complete deep dive complete systems maintenance en mass at once. For example if your torque tube bearings are bad what does changing them entail? Pull exhaust and its shields off (probably breaking some bolts while doing it), reaching very difficult to reach bolts, tt comes out, but, what other maintenance should be done while there? I say shifter bushings and while the body is off (my way - long term easier and more efficient) put in the Hans shifter, take 20 minutes and install new shifter bushings, then handle everything else like I did on my S4: wheel bearings, brakes, blasted everything and as you see on my S4 I opted to paint in an aluminum color good paint after good epoxy primer was applied after each item was PMB. A business model I think is here!

When my S4 is done it will be a rolling example of every system with a hands on replacement and servicing and or replacing and or refurbishing and improvement in appearance and a level of attention the factory never did. These aluminum parts are pieces of beauty! They clean up so nicely! And while I was at it I blasted my s4 intake and cam covers and scoped every crevice where sadly fellow 928ers have erred in their intake refresh operations. I'm lucky as I own and run a Plastic Media Blasting business which I ran everything thru on the side more of and as an experiment in what if and to satiate my curiosity of mastering this complex automobile.

I got the chassis completely pulled down and apart. Dolly goes to Richard this coming week and I return with an S4 engine. Here's some pics - all recent ones too.




Bushings? What Bushings?

And this is what it will look like - closely, maybe not exactly!


Clutch has been replaced, and appears to be serviceable.
