Default How many 15-16 gt3's have engine replaced?

Just curious to see how many have been replaced and if people think it brings down the value? There's already a bulletin, so Porsche must already know about it. Has anyone got anything extra out of porsche for it?

Are you talking about the high rpm misfire bulletin? I think almost all have been 2014 so far... DLC coating upgraded in 2015 and again for 2016. Oiling and many other parts changed in 2016 to match RS...

Yes, mine is a 15 and that's the bulletin I'm talking about. Engine is already out.

Jamie, any idea as to when the DLC was updated on the 15s? Thanks.

Care to share your build date and last 4 of the VIN?
Thanks

Well Charles, Neil and my investigation into this issue will intensify. Not sure of the exact date of the switch, and the info on the DLC coating improvement is second hand...

I do have some 2016 finger followers on my desk, and we have a valve cover gasket coming to pop mine open to have a look.

Hi mate. PM me your data. Have only experienced one F engine failure on my database, it was a replacement engine for a failed E as well. Was a failed rocker (broken). Interesting As my sister car down here E series with same mileage and use also just experienced similar fate. Currently as Jamie says F series failure is rare although I suspect it will increase with time, use age and mileage. You engine if it has failed due to same or similar issues will be upgraded with a G series unit I am sure.

sent pm Macca. What makes this great for me is that I bought the car used from a porsche dealership, had to wait almost a month to have it delivered to me, within 24 hours I get overfill light and check engine lights. Took to my local dealer who I despise since I had my name on the gt3rs list and they are selling my spot because I don't want to pay $150k over msrp for the allocation

Try and get some details of the failure, what cylinder failed, pics of the finger followers or even the some of the failed parts if you can! I'll buy them!

Noble idea. But I am pretty sure Porsche is not letting any replaced engine out of their hands. For obvious reasons, of course. Nothing nefarious.

How can you tell if you have an E, F, or G engine?

Mine has been fine for almost 8000 miles, whatever it is.
