  1. Hello gents, Can someone decipher the following two sentences from the 993 Shop Manual: 993 shop manual: "4. Bore inner valve guide dia. to a dimension of "g" = 8.00 to 8.015 mm using a broach or precision boring equipment. In an emergency, the valve guides may also be machined with a special reamer." Please read the two lines carefully. I asked this question on another p-car forum and the guys were totally confused in their reply posts. I do this work for a living for about 45+ years. I need one of these 993 (8mm) guide broach systems now. I will go into detail of why this broach system is superior for guide bore sizing if I get some reply posts of interest. ---
  2. Hello folks- I am new here and am not sure this is the proper forum for the topic at hand. Anyway here is the question: Does anyone know anything about rebuilding (valve job) the 4.5L V-8 direct injection cylinder heads? I believe the vehicle is a 2007 MY. Any technical information or thoughts would be appreciated. Jacknob
