  1. So, as some of you may know, I have a bit of a dabble in rebuilding aircooled 911 motors.. Had a friend with a 3.0 and quite a few oil leaks.. with a lot of planning and help from friends in the USA, months of parts delays, etc.. we have upgraded this 3.0 SC to a 3.5litre motor. Cannot really give away all the technical bits but most of you will know what's in there from the pics. The brief was that he wanted the car to be a street car so dyno charts are not being posted at request of the owner. All dynos are different, and I have been in cars with "certified 200hp at the wheels with a dyno to prove it" that are no where near 200 hp at the wheels. Let's just say the number is substantially more than stock! I've driven 964s and 993s (stock apart from chip and zorst) and this thing feels way way quicker. The throttle response is instant. The torque comes in early thanks to the longer stroke and custom length rods (oops, might have said too much already ) and it is flat. And boy is this motor smooth... It's a real shame it's gone back to the owner.. I really didn't want to stop driving it! Might just have to build one for myself... Anyway, here are some pics to tell the story.. not enough pics during assembly, sorry. But you can see the sorry state the motor was in. If you have an aircooled 911, and it "only drips a few drops after a drive" it is leaking too much!! Forgot to take a whole bunch of pictures at this point....
  2. Thought I'd post a few pics of an engine I am currently refreshing... not sure if many are interested in this stuff... ?? Pics will basically form a timeline.. Had a few delays waiting for parts but we are on the final stretch now. Engine ran well, but was leaking a fair amount of oil. We are replacing the stock 8.5:1 pistons for 9.8:1 and also upgrading camshafts with a custom grind sourced through William Knight in the USA, who has designed these and has them manufactured by Webcamshafts.com. It will be interesting to see how this motor performs, as the cam is "more" than a 964 or 20/21 that is commonly used, but the claim is that it will outperform them, even using the CIS. Time will tell. Check out the before pics...! yummy!! See how far the plunger in the chain tensioner is extended?
  3. Doing another assembly.. trying my hand at video.. and finding it takes more skill and patience to do the video, than the engine itself..
  4. http://www.olliesmachine.com/uploads/Ollies_Price_List.pdf Has anyone sent a case over to the usa to have machined ? Or is there a place here in Aus that can perform the same work to the same standard?
  5. Hi all I am looking at a 86-89 Carrera or a standard issue 996. Love the heritage of the old cars, but drawn to the value proposition of the 996. The cars I am looking at all have over 150,000 kms on the clock. My question is...what are the odds that the engine will need a complete rebuild at $15k+? Can they tell this from a PPI? Many thanks in advance for any help.... James
