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

I`m rebuilding this engine just to have something fun to use until i finish a more powerful unit for this car.

As I didnít unassembled the engine and itís no way for me to know if there any lost parts, bolts etc. I will just put everything together first before I glue it together with gaskets and Loctite,



I will handle over the cylinder block tomorrow to the machine shop to make the IMS hole bigger using a CNC milling machine.
This way I can change the IMS ballbearing everythime I change clutch.
At the lefthand side you have the improved IMS and at the righthand side the OEM unit, increasing diameter at the engine block IMS hole to 62mm it will be no problem changing this in the future...

I sent the engine block to mechanise milling IMS hole opening it up to take the new 62mm IMS. It`s looks great!
Under my point of view I don’t see milling the whole with the engine in place at the car as several companies sell, perform or rent, As I see it no matter how careful you are it will always come in a lot off metal shavings in the engine who will go around whole oil cirquit damaging the engine.

Oem

At the final I havenít changed nothing from stock parts rebuilding the engine, I have just rebuilt the with the idea of build an second more hot engine making a coming swap in the future.
As I had everything just mixed up in boxes itís been like puzzle, driving me crazy..
Nothing was marked as it should have been etcÖ
But now engine is together and finished but with one little shaft left over ho I canít find out from where it comes or goes, this driving me crazy!

If anyone knows anything about this shaft please help!

I still havenít no idea where this bloody shaft goes, as I they gave me the engine totally unassembled in boxes 📦 there is a possibility the shaft not from this engine, the thing is, this kind of engines I divided in two identical halfís, why just one shaft?
This is getting me a bit on my nervesÖÖ

I now have the engine finished except for one breathing hose who still havenít arrived.
