  1. Kelvin, at least before blowing your engine you had some few times of glory cruising at 270! When I blown it, I was stopped at the traffic light... the noise was exactly tha same you described (I thought to an OM Leoncino - a '50-'60 italian small truck) This is my story http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=4501&hl= (I don't know if the link works but in case you can search here for the title of the 3D "another (?) 996 3.4 engine broken..., is normal that a serviced 67.000 Km...".
