that was actually the first thing i researched, specials tools, and i think i pinned most of them( they are not cheap that is for sure). So i can get the tools, i have some basic knowledge but i'm really missing the confidence and that mainly because i don't have very good documentations and instructions.
yes, i agree, i have heard only great things about them and the price would be okish but the 3-4 months wait i think its way too much. I have rebuild couple wrx sti engines and they didn't seemed that complicated( but there was a whole lot more information on them than this porsche)this is why i'm thinking at a diy. Anyways thank you for the info, very much appreciated!
Got it, i think i will stick with the rebuild since this is a limited edition and i want to keep it as close to factory as possible. do you recommend any shops that do engine rebuilds at a resolvable price/time ( i called LN and they want 16k for the rebuild and the lead time is 3-4 months) ? Cheers
Notes, Cheers. any knowledge of ppl from this community swapping the 3.2 engines with 3.4 from the 996?
No seeing the one for a 986. Thanks for sharing the link.
Mihai Popa started following Need help with service manual on rebuilding my engine
Thank you very much JFP, and yea i will need as much luck as possible ?, never really worked on a Porsche before. I found these videos and i see he is using a book for torque specs and other details but i couldn't get a hold of him, the videos are pretty old. Good stuff but not a whole lot of details.
Hello Gents, I recently purchased a Porsche Boxster S 2004 special edition ( gorgeous car with only 24k miles). Purchased it as a fixer upper, initial the owner said it needs a rear main seal, leaked oil and stopped then they took it to the dealership but eventually the owner decided to sell it. Long story short the IMS bearing was destroyed and now i am looking to rebuild the engine. Mainly just to replace the IMS, ( no other damage to the engine as far i can tell) but i have a hard time finding any documentation or steps on disassemble/assembling the engine.The Porsche service manual by Bentley does not include this info, i did found some info but this is for a 2001 Porsche S and my understand is that they might are slightly different. Thank you in advanced for your time and consideration.
