Scotty Kilmer is a moron. Sorry, that is not fair to morons. He is brain dead. Sorry, that is not fair to dead people.

Scotty Kilmer, perfect example of a mechanic that shouldn't even be allowed to do an oil change on your Boxster.
"Can't even see [the engine] without taking the body off..." idiot.

Lol...Scotty Kilmer is sooo 80's. Kinda funny. And jeeez we got lucky that he doesn't belong to the "PORSCH" community. He has no clue and his target Group he is aiming for must be bean counters and cheapskates (or sadly without any money to spend on cars).
Owning a Porsche 911, not being able to pay for new cats and selling it...lol...I AM LOOKING OVER MY GLASSES...
Just keep on repairing your last millenium cars, Scotty

Absolutely unreal. What body part does one have to take off to access the engine? And I’m pretty sure I can change the water pump in about an hour... not counting purging the coolant. Oh well.

There are not adjectives bad enough to describe this nut. Whatís worse is that he has some commenters (is that a word??) that think he is knowledgeable.

Why does this guy remind me of Earl Scheib, or maybe someone doing an impersonation of him. I kept waiting for the "paint this car for $99.95" spiel.

It's not that hard to change a water pump on a 986.

My other car is a 2005 Mercedes C230. I run across his videos when I'm trying to find DIY's on YouTube. He doesn't like Mercedes either. Why does he need to shout all the time?

No no no, you guys got it all wrong! We need more smart people like him so we will maintain access to used Porsches at bargain price that nobody even think about getting it for fear of $1,000 water pump jobs or whatever.

Im sure most non-DIY people appreciate such advise to be smart about car selection... and buy a car that those grease monkies earn easy money with least work...

He should recommend 550 or 904 which open access to the mid engine, that has appreciated over 100x from the original values!

I think it's best just to ignore Scotty. With Porsches, either you "get it" or you don't. He doesn't. Fine.

Let him work on collecting more hits so he can lake a living with this claptrap.

Just sayin'...........

Mental

$7400 for 2 cats lol. i love people like this.

Yes there is cheaper cars to run but the question is where do you draw the line between owning a cheap as chips car to run and running a car you want to own.

Im glad he doesnt like them as Id feels better if he didn't have one lol.
