    My Porsche 928

    For anyone who cares to know I believe I have found that the lifters are indeed coated. It is called Parkerized!! Look it up

    Nurburgring lap record smashed

    Racing without rules is a great concept and would push the boundaries of what can de done. unfortunately the team with the most expertise and money will always win and the class would quickly die with spiralling costs no one else would enter... even the LMP1 now has no entries (well 1 competitor does not make a class). Porsche killed Can-am racing with the 917-30 and most of it's other cars have been hobbled as they won too much (in the 70s and 80s). As silly as it is you need rules so others can play.... I love that Porsche have "broken" the record with the 919 but I still see Bellof in the 956 as the Nürburgring record holder.

    My Porsche 928

    Still waiting on parts to arrive and I am also ordering more as I still find stuff that is needed! Latest finding is cam lobe pitting, some say a result of low ZDDP oils. Not sure if true or not, but looking to get my cams reground now Lifters will most likely be refurbed as a new set is about $5k!! (edit, more like $7k plus!!) On the lifters, does anyone know what material they are made or are they coated? They appear to be coated and I have heard about some lightly re-linishing them....

    Alusil cylinders recoating

    From the Porsche workshop manual the factory pistons are chrome or iron coated, I have only seen the iron coated ones. I contacted Chris Richards at HPC http://www.hpcoatings.com.au/coatings-2/#Engine-Coatings and he confirmed that their Molybdenum Disulfide DF1 coating was suitable for use in an Aluisl bore/ block. Wossner also assured me that their coating is suitable. To say this they must have been used in Alusil with success. Rings are just standard, nothing special needed as you say the materials are different and not interact (gall) Just had a look on Design 911 website, the 911 Wossner piston sets are cheap (compared to 928 ones!!)

    Alusil cylinders recoating

    No, I bought some N.O.S. original ones. Why do you say that? All the big custom piston brands offer coated pistons. Arias supply 928 Motorsport with coated pistons and they sell a few into the 928 market. The rest offer them and while none would divulge exactly what the coatings were (industry secret) they assured would work with Alusil. I spoke with HPC they seemed fine with coating pistons, check their website out.
