Engine rebuild and P1539 and P1324

Heh, awesome, I like the color.

Not a bad price for a roller, plus the cost of the rebuild you are ahead of the game...

I've often fantasized about buying these cars, fixing em' up and flipping them, but there is very little margin for error and not a ton of profit to be had unless you could crank them out fast.

you are preaching to the choir.....after 3.5 engine pulls and various set backs on my first 911 and rebuild, I do feel very confident about the effort. I was confident the bottom end was correct. Flipping is in my plan but finding a broken 996/997 is not as easy as my first purchase. Boxsters are everywhere but not so desirable and the 996 "flat side panels " are, well, not so sexy to the porsche purist. But what fun.. I'm thinking of just building motors on the side and putting them in broken cars. I'm in commercial real estate biz which ...........sucks right now!!

Congratulations, What a saga! Incredible intestinal fortitude and perseverance.

Have some fun with it before you think about selling it.

Just went through this thread in its entirety for the 1st time! It read like a mystery novel! Superb outcome as a result of your patience and excellent pro-active coaching/assistance from savvy folks willing to pass on their extensive knowledge/experience. Impressive group of positive folks at renntech, I must say! Thank you for the lessons learned throughout as well! Cheers!
