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.

Just find a good independant Porsche mechanic and ask him to assit for a complete inventory of parts.

For a good mechanic this is really simple and there is not so many parts...

Good luck

+1 on this advice to have a qualified engine builder review all of the parts and ensure none have been damaged or are already beyond the point of re-use. You can try to attempt the inventory yourself, but it takes considerable experience and/or time to research, and only a qualified machinist will be able to tell you if some of the pieces are fit for re-use or require machining. You can download the porsche parts catalog online from Porshce's website (google Porsche PET online).

I can't see any reason why they would not provide you with all of your original parts.

Don't take shortcuts on your rebuild by reusing many of these parts which should be repalced regardless, and at not that great of an expense...

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.

Do yourself a favor and throw away your old bolts. You don't want to install stretched or heat cycled hardware back in your engine.

Porsche specifically recommends to replace many of these bolts every time the engine is rebuilt and I wouldn't want to take the chance of a builder re-using my old bolts, so don't even give them to him.

ESPECIALLY fasteners such as rod bolts, flywheel bolts, main bolts, and head bolts. They are single use ONLY!

If you want re-usable fasteners the only ones you should consider are aftermarket from ARP.

In fact, there's not a whole lot of these types of small parts you want to re-use in the engine rebuild. The total cost on them is not substantial compared to the entire rebuild. Many of the parts are less than a dollar each. For example things you should replace:

Ramps, chains, bearings, seals, washers, orings, gaskets, screws, bolts, nuts, lifters, valve seals, actuators, tensioners, plugs, oil jets, swirl pots, baffles, tubes, scavenge pumps, etc. Consider replacing the valve guides and valve springs. I recommend purchasing R&R rods, they cost about $1400.
