You should really give Jake Raby at Flat 6 Innovations a call if you seek rebuild or frakenbuild advice.

Nope but with the liquid cooled engines they are prob one of the best around along with LN. Engine and machining work around here is so hit or miss... I've had a few really bad experiences with a so called "engine builder" locally that freight shipping to USA is totally worth the cost.

The machining of crankshaft cradles and replacement of sleeves requires precision machinery (read expensive) not to mention the experience to do it right the first time. Unless a shop specializes in rebuilding M96/97 and other Porsche motors (we have a small market) I doubt they would have either. To eco Gregster; I would much prefer getting the best surgical team to work on the heart of my Porsche, even if it means sending it south of the border. If anyone has used local shops that specialize in M97 motors please chime in.

Yup
You want a guy who builds 20 a year or 20 a week?

You are close enough.

Default It's all in the pan

In a previous post Tom mentioned looking into my pan while at WeTune, well, here is what he saw. I see bits of sleeve, rod bearings. Tear down will tell us more. I see this as a learning experience and the opportunity to build a reliable bad a#$ motor for next season. Many thanks to fellow Rennsporters for the words of encouragement and help to date. Stay tuned

Yikes !

Have my annual physical today (yep - I get the full "treatment" !) and praying the doc doesnt tell me my internals look like that.... but know looking in the mirror that they probably do ! Thank god I'm dashingly handsome !

Seriously, that pic is just amazing, and frightening. Hoping this all works out for you bro, and that the fix is reasonably easy.

See you in a couple days... beers on me.

Take that pan photo, blow it up to 3' x 5' and frame it, it's really interesting, no joke.
