2000 911 Porsche Carrera Engine Rebuild
We rebuilt the entire engine of this 2000 Porsche Carrera.
It was a lot of work, but now this car is ready to fly.
Our engine rebuild included:
- new piston rings,
- crank/big end bearings,
- new hydraulics for both heads, and
- new gaskets & seals.
Here are the details, we:
stripped the engine to its bare components;
put the engine through a high pressure cleansing wash to remove all carbon deposits and debris from previous failures;
checked the cylinder bores for cracks and other signs of wear (some cylinders needed re-sleeving);
checked the pistons and changed the rings;
checked and re-honed the connecting rods;
checked the crankshaft;
replaced the main and big end bearing shells;
replaced the oil pump;.
- stripped down the cylinder heads and checked for cracks, wear and trueness. They were then pressure tested and face machined;
- machined the valve seats and checked and replaced __ valve guides;
re-cut replaced or refaced valves (as needed);
Leak-tested the head;
checked camshafts for wear;
checked IMS (intermediate shaft bearing) for any play; and
re-assembled the engine with new gaskets and seals etc.
