Looks like someone learned a lot in my WTI M96 Engine Mechanical Class.

Impressive.

Your class was fantastic, I was able to extrapolate the IMSB’s tribological dynamics and you can see what the engineers did to try and resolve the bearing failure issue in an economical way.
I will be taking more classes from you.

Excellent.
I'll be offering the hands on class as soon as I finish this damn M96 engine book :-)
My entire focus is on it until then.

I was told by my local Porsche dealer that the 2 year warranty on factory rebuilds only applies if a Porsche dealer installs the motor in a car for which it was intended.

I hope it's a "How To" rebuild guide with step-by-step instructions.
