C4S Over-Rev - Urgent


Recommended Posts

My Boxster S was wrecked recently, and I'm looking at a step up to a C4s. However, the one I'm looking at has just come back from the PPI with a Range 1 number of 9400 and a Range 2 number of 15. I've read the other threads, so I know this means 9400 "ignitions" above 7k rpm -- this is perhaps about 26 total seconds over-rev. Nonetheless, that seems like a car ('04 with 48k mi) that has been ridden hard and put away wet. Does anyone here have an opinion about owning such a car/engine, or what to de-rate a price based on this? Thanks in advance.

It would be helpful to know what the hours (or "h" value) that appears directly after the slash after the number for Range 1 and after the number for Range2 ignitions is and to compare it to the "Operating Hours" counter value.

That would at least give you an idea of how long the engine has "survived" after the Overrevs that are documented by the numbers in both Range 1 and Range 2 ignitions, keeping in mind that the Range 1 overrevs are likely just bounces off the rev limiter.

Regards, Maurice.
