Guys in the AMG club do. if we wind up the boost to much much on our motors the old coating wears pretty bad. They have had them the recoated. another option is sleeves or new barrels 

 

I mentioned them, but thank you anyway for reminder :)

I wish I had the ability to rebuild my 3.0 engine. Has a couple of broken head studs and now making some noise in take off. Autohaus quoted a figure I can’t even half afford!

Stu,

Suggest you get a quote from Simon at Autowerks in Wyong.  He is also happy if you supply the parts which gives you the opportunity to buy them in preparation when on special like at Design911 at the moment.

Also spreads the costs so your wife will never know what the total cost was!

what's the update to this thread?

Has anyone been involved in having cylinders re coated with nikasil?

You ended up getting this succesfully redone, right?

yep.. well, it was done by Electrosil in Melbourne... have to wait till it runs etc before we can say successfully.

They have done over 90 sets of 911 cylinders and I haven't yet read a bad thing, but then again, I haven't read a good thing either. My engine now has heads and cam towers on after today. Just need to clean up the chain boxes and they can go back on tomorrow night hopefully.

So this means you can re-use cylinders whether they are Nikasil or Alusil?

pretty much covered that here:
"

5. Next step is changing whatever you want to change, cylinders, pistons, rods, oil pumps, valves, clutch and\or flywheel etc. 

You will have to recondition your heads first, here are some examples:

Melbourne - HSD Developments would charge - 2500 AUD

Melbourne - Cascone 1500+ AUD

Sydney - and the PR Technology (PRT) 1500+ AUD

For twin plug setup (machining only, no dizzy, no spark plugs etc)

Melbourne - HSD Developments would charge - 1400 AUD

Melbourne - Cascone  - 1100 AUD

Sydney - and the PR Technology (PRT) - 700 AUD

It is not comprehensive but enough to get the rough pricing idea."
