I still chuckle everytime I look where the starter ended up...under the plastic tube carrying water/antifreeze...I'm sure they had a good reason.

"Ja, ja very gut , Fritz. ve put zee sharter in zee meedle of zee engine so nobody sees it. Then vee vill run coolant lines, plastic, ja ja, plastic over zem. Ve make changing zee shtarter a 12 hour yob. You gonna tell me there was not one engineer there that had any problem with all of this?

Here's a copy of my invoice, Porsche52 or anyone else is welcome to add whatever is missing to this list for the DIY'er.

The job took the mech only one day, I advise to bring your car in the day before so everything is cold when they work on it.
I had no problems with the car, we just did it voluntarily

The total was $1607.33 from my local Porsche dealer.

Curious why those are mostly 948 part numbers and not 955 part numbers?

Thanks for the info Vino. Actually I would have expected a bigger invoice. Glad for you it wasn't.

When did Porsche stop putting in the plastic coolant pipes? I assume that my 2004 has the plastic pipes, but it was a late build car in the cycle. Is it possible that they aren't plastic pipes? Is it possible to check by VIN? I'm sure this has been asked before, but I couldn't find it...

Yes, but when did they stop using the plastic? A very valid question.

To my knowledge, I do not believe they ever bulit engines from the factory with the metal pipes installed. We did a re-man engine a while back, it had plastic pipes, we converted it prior to installing it. Hell, the 2nd gen 9PA has a plastic coolant pipe under intake, there is only 1, but its plastic! The 2nd gen 997 (9A1) motor has platic pipes all over the place!!
