Warranty I would be surprised there is any, maybe if the dealer is doing the work. Then again with just using OEM with the ims and borescoring issues that happen so frequently I wouldn't be surprised if they would warranty their work on it.

Would be interesting to know what the cylinder wall to piston clearance is on the factory rebuilt engines.

The rebuild from Porsche is a bare short block only, no heads, oil and water pumps, T stat, etc.
Keep in mind it's porsche spec, lokisil jugs,stock IMS bearing, pistons, rods etc.
It's a OK deal but on the total job once you add the labour in/out, head work, build time and parts you're saving $2-3k over nickies with JE pistons and Solution or Retro IMS.
On a complete job I upgrade to the largest size (3.4-3.8/ 3.6-4.0) for NC. Zooks case is at LN right now getting the 4.0 treatment.

For racing I'd want Carrillo rods and a deep sump, looking at OP's engine I'd say he threw a rod, most of the engine will be junk. He won't get the core charge back.

The connecting rod bearing on rod#1 failed which destroyed the block and the casing on both sides. I am not going to get the core charge back... Fortunately, the heads are still good. The engine was disassembled by Mark Motors in Ottawa, and I have already ordered the short block(with deposit). In total, I will be spending about $12K in parts + labour... I decided to go with them for the 2 year parts and labour warranty... and the fact that they are local. After reading everyones' posts, I am thinking that maybe I shouldn't be tracking this car... but it is one of the main reasons I bought it... Too bad the Porsche dealership will only install Porsche parts.

Holly molly that's some carnage. What year was the engine (double or single row IMS bearing)? If you are willing to sell the IMS shaft and is the double row one, I might be interested in it.

Tight and tighter. To give you an idea, the MA1 engine runs less than .001" total piston to cylinder clearance.

if you’re planning on fabrication on a Canadian product I’ll contribute to your research cause....

woah! that some carnage. I'm glad you have sorted it out and should be back on the road soon.
And I think you should be OK to track for the next 2 years since there is Factory Warranty

What happened to your recently rebuilt/refreshed engine?
