This is awesome.
Ideally, the engine should have heat in it, but from a practical stand point, with the amount time required to get the car ready to do a leak down, it will be warm at best. Thanks for both answers JFP. Called the shop and they re-affirmed the quote. They said they wouldn't charge me more than the 1.5 hours and I will be there for the test, so I'll report back. An independent 3rd garage told me both are excellent and very honest, so either is fine. All else being equal, I'll take the less expensive one and also see how long it really takes. Btw, this shop showed me where the cylinders were on the car and they would go through the bottom of the car and remove a plate where the cylinders are. He admitted that they are a bit hard to get to, but he's done it himself many times. Guess we'll see...
Oh, also guys should this be done on a cold engine, warm engine or once both?
Thanks JFP. Are you an experienced tech? Just trying to get a feel for tech experience.
Thanks guys. I've heard 4 hours from all the forums, but this very reputable garage told me 1.5 hours on a turbo. Should I go with them? I'll be there when it goes down.
Hey guys, Total noob here. Have a purchase agreement for a 996tt pending PPI. How long should a compression and leakdown test take? Visited two reputable garages today and one garage told me 1.5 hours and the other told me 4 hours. Thanks in advance.
