Good to know thx.

The car looks sorely lacking any kind of care - dirty inside and out and the headlights look seriously dirty.
Brake dust all over the wheels and the inside needs a good clean.

You would think they would have washed it and cleaned inside before pics.

Having Jake come on BAT is like a teacher coming into a chaotic classroom full of rowdy clueless children, jerk'm up by their ears, and throw'm back in their desks.

Nuttin' like a spanking with the Raby Board of Education on the Seat of Knowledge.

Imagine how the engine has been maintained... All we can do is assume, and guess.

Jake - these where X51 package - How much of that remains when you bump it to 3.8L ?


To me a clean car inside and out - and engine bay etc ... is a well cared for car - in this case - No.

I throw away 100 pounds of parts from the engine. Whether its good or bad, I send it to the scrap yard anyway. X51 doesn't impress me, never has.

Not much is left of the X51 except the cams, I even reshaped the intake ports and got about 12CFM of increased port flow on that particular engine. Today my R51 ports beat those by almost 20 CFM.

That's my gut on it as well given that the owner isn't willing to wash the front wheels once a month. Odds are he isn't minimizing the hit to his wallet on maintenance items. Sad for his estate, good for interested buyers.

I've had misfires as well as higher than desired oil consumption, but a trip to a good indie (new coil packs) & good oil (DT40) has mine running better than ever. Total cost was a fraction of what that owner on BAT is giving up in the 'project' auction.

apparently Wheel Dynamics can restore our wheels, this is good news

I wonder how rough they were before the process ?
I have a new front wheel I'll sell for $675.

Hello
Anybody got a spare 40th anniv. engine (x-51) laying around? After 331,000 miles of almost trouble free driving, mine is starting to have a few issues.
Thanks
Steve

Finding a core is very hard for X51..

I have an option for you. Shoot me a message and I'll call you.

Hey Guys, my quest for unnecessary knowledge is never ending! I absolutely love my 30th and can't help it. (Tried searching but no luck)

That said, can someone explain what "direct accelerator linkage" means, or what Porsche meant? Keep reading!!!!

The throttle body on these cars looks like the egas version to my newbie eyes. And the cable behind the accelerator goes and ends under the dash at an electronic device. Um, so what's so direct or at least better than see device being attached to the gas pedal. All this so I can keep bragging, haha!

Hello
Forget the new engine! Cam sensors were the fix. Wow that was scary, after talking with the dealer about removing the engine to fix, 10k+, all is well!

While I'm here, happy to report I'm back in a 40th with #445. 48k miles, had the IMS/RMS/AOS/clutch done before shipping it to Chicago from the Bay Area. At Fisher to get Gt3 control arms, sways, PSS10's and some Fisters. Then to a body shop for some minor work and then finally home. Then wheels off to get refinished and will probably put on an intake of some kind.

Sold my 996tt to get back into a 40th and I'm sure I will have no regrets!
