have you measured the cylinders for ovality and taper? It looks like you intend to reuse the 5 cylinders and add one new piston?

As you understand Iím gone need a other set of intake manifolds, As the used market is full of good units I will look there, Here comes the question! which one is the best (cheap) if Iím looking for some more power???
986/987, 3.2
987, 3.4
911, 3.6
etc.....

Im playing with the idea using the units I purchase (cutting and 3d scaning them) to make my own version in composite.

I always use to weight the pistons before i assemble them to the engine, The new piston arrived weighting 540g and when I put the old units at the scale the weighted 543g....
But after cleaning carbon the made the same 540g as the new unit.
So 3g carbon weight at each piston..mmmm
