Engine protection plate install


Recommended Posts

If it is the OEM Porsche part it bolts on to existing fasteners. These bolts hold plumbing etc. There are four fastening points. When you place the plate under the engine (and see how it orients) it is self explatory which bolts to use. Take you about 5 minutes tops...

No they were designed for the early 3.4 liter engines that actually had some bolts that protruded down. Folks would catch them on a curb or something and then rip a hole in the case.

The later engines fixed that problem and unless you go "offroad" or back into curbs most folks don't need the plates (IMHO of course).

And I find I have to remove it every time I change the oil or it pools on top of the plate

making a mess.
