Sold the nine six four!

It is with considerable regret, but the 964 has left with a great new owner. During the 11 years I had the car, I survived a divorce, three moves, and a job change. The 964 never faltered, and was...

A full rebuild after 30,000 miles seems like swatting a gnat with a hammer. There are plenty of threads on engine-in reseal options, and engine-out reseal.

The shop that did the rebuild should...

As far as the PPI is concerned, you should be OK if you document what you do, and show that it is equal or better than the factory-supplied fastener system. A grade-matched bolt, nut, and washer...

OK, but I would put "reputable" before "mechanic". There are terrible things that can go wrong from neglect or mis-adjustment.
