firstporsche88 replied to firstporsche88's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have seen and printed the images that you referenced. Thanks!
Nice engine, is it for sale? :)
firstporsche88 replied to roshana's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Could this be the beginning of the IMS bearing going out? Being my 2002 had an IMS bearing blowout, I agree, don't drive it anymore and have it flat bedded to your shop and have them check it out ASAP.
firstporsche88 replied to firstporsche88's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks for all the feedback. I finally got the engine back and I did a inventory the best I could using exploded views of the engine. Seems I did get everything back, atleast the major parts. I got a few bags of bolts, nuts, and screws . . . I'll measure and check every screw and thread so I know exactly what I have. I've been given a few ideas, EBS in Reno was recommeneded a few times so I'll give them a call. I'll also checkk out Vision Motorsports but you're the first to recommend them. PMKAZZ - Has Vision rebuilt an engine for you? Thanks again.
I purchased a 2002 C4S from a friend with the imfamous IMS bearing issue. It had a pretty catastrophic failure. I brought it to what I thought was a reputable rebuilder - come to find out after I signed papers - they are not. So they have my engine, it is in a million pieces, and now I'm asking for it back AS IS so as not to incure any more cost, and I don't trust them. All that being said, does anyone know where I can find an engine parts list where I can inventory every part to ensure I have everything! This is my first porsche and I am unfamiliar with the engine and all its components. I want to have my own list and not trust that this company will supply me with one. Thanks for your reply in advance. Glen
