Hi! I have a 2010 Panamera 4.8l tt that I bought because it had a water damaged engine. Tear down is complete, and I have the parts that need machining at Patterson Elite (http://www.patterson-elite.com). Although I just dropped the parts off today, by this afternoon Todd Patterson had a challenge for me. The block is one solid piece of aluminum (so it seems), therefore the cylinder walls are aluminum and do not appear to be sleeved currently.

The water damage bent a rod and the result was a scored cylinder, so the challenge is...how do we machine this cylinder? It seems if we follow the standard boring process, when the new pistons and rings go in, the rings will severely score the newly machined cylinder.

Does anyone have any idea how they built these cylinders at the factory and if this engine can even be machined?

Thanks!

I am not sure about the Turbo but I seem to remember that for the Turbo S they used another metal for the cylinders, it is not aluminum.

Yeah that is what I was thinking, and I could probably benefit by talking with someone who can speak with a factory rep, but I don't trust my local Porsche "Stealership".

      Tried googeleing it but couldn’t find what I was after.    Was curious if anyone knows what type of flat 6 the 986 boxster has?
       
      Is it a a true boxer engine? Or a horizontally opposed flat V?     True boxer meaning it has individual crank pins for each piston and is a true 180degree angle.    Thanks in advance

      Since I bought my Boxster the key-fob never worked, so my usual practice
      is to put my key into the cylinder and turn it to unlock.
       
      So this week, I did the procedure I've done hundreds of times, when after opening,
      the resistance I've always felt while turning the lock disappeared! I could now
      turn the key left and right, a full 180 degrees without any resistance. No movement
      in the door latch.
       
      And yet, when I roll the car down the driveway, the door locks do engage and so does the
      latch. Something mechanical must have slipped off the cylinder assembly, and I know I'll
      have to take the door apart to find out,
       
      I'm wondering if anyone has had the same situation and what they've done to fix it.
       
      Thanks1

      I hate my pig but I love my pig, can anyone please help me before I send it for scrap. Over the space of the last 4 years of ownership my car has been in the Porsche dealers for 2 years in total with suspension problems, to cut a long story short this is now sorted and was due to a faulty replacement air bag being fitted. Moving on after 3 months of (almost) trouble free motoring this is what’s happening now and would love some advice as the closest porsche dealers is over 200 miles away from me.

      When I picked up the car from Porsche  it ran out of petrol before I got to the garage at the end of the road and although I filled it up it  the engine warning light remained on I assumed this was just fuel related and drove home with it on and reset it when I got home.
      Wind on a few weeks and the engine light came back on and gave me a camshaft position sensor error p0016 so I sent the car to my local Porsche mechanic who changed out the sensor and did a full service on the car including plugs filter oil etc etc. All this time the car has been running fine but as I wanted the sensor light out it was changed. However after changing it out the light came back on almost straight away. The car has been a bit sluggish to start sometimes and sometimes on pulling away from a stop has also been hesitant. 
      This was about 3-4 weeks ago and now it is worse again, at tickover it’s noisy, it doesn’t like acceleration and is running really rough although if you are going over 50mph it doesn’t have a problem and seems to run fine. The EML is now flashing rather than being a solid light. I attach a video of it running.
      Any thoughts would be a help before I decide to get it hauled back across again

      Just wanted to say thanks to the community helped answer some questions about the scoring on my 2008 CTT 957. My next question is, does anyone know where I may purchase a complete engine seals and gasket kit for a 2008 Cayenne Turbo? Or if these are unavailable as a whole unit, had anyone rebuilt their engine from the cylinder scoring or something similar and have a parts list of required seals and gaskets which need changed? Additionally, are there any other suggestions on parts that I should change some I'll have the motor apart? Anything would help at this point. Thanks

      Hello there, this is my first post here and I’m writing because of problem with my boxster.
      Today in the morning I’ve started my 2002 boxster and noticed strange sounds from the engine/ rear side of the car
      It’s a metallic, grinding sound like a loose piece of metal or something like that
      Sound disappears when you press gas and comes back once you loose the pedal, I don’t know if it changes while engine is warm
       
      Also, check engine light shown up yesterday, when I connected my BT OBD2 there was no error code.
      I came with that to workshop also, and they said it’s a catalyst efficiency error.
       
      I’ve had that error code a while ago, I’ve replaced mass air flow meter and check engine light disappeared. 
      I think it might be a problem with maf again because I bought not the cheaper, not the original one, but why are there these strange sounds? I’m worried about this. Could it be catalyst this time? Or again should I replace maf? This time I’ll buy original one.
       
       
       
      here are two Videos I made
       
       
       
       
       
      Also I’m sorry if you can’t understand something, my english is not perfect.
      Thank you for all replies, I hope we will solve that problem together
