Nope. The pump didn't just seize. It seized as collateral damage from something else failing, and that debris being pulled into the pump. They never seize out of the blue, there's always a deeper issue and you better find it, or it will find you.

As far as the Worldpac classes, the one this weekend is likely the very last one for the M96. WTI adopted my DFI and Cayenne engine classes and now that we've done the M96 class for 32 years, they are likely to abandon it.

If the class is abandoned by WTI, I will still host the class with Tony Callas and may travel to do the classes just like with WTI- Just on my own. I have several new hands on classes at my new training facility, to include enthusiast level classes.

I see no one has chimed in since 2014 so thought I would give a bump. My 3.6 Raby build now has about 800 miles on it and she is running flawless. We haven't really done any tuning yet as Jake's chassis dyno took a crap . So I have been logging miles and the ECU is " learning " as we go. Sometime around the end of April we will go back to Jake's and drop the car off. Dyno tuning will take place and Jake will get her really dialed in. But the car is just a blast to drive. She pulls like a freight train from idle to 7k with little effort. I'm running a GHL twin can muffler which is too loud and does have drone but man does she howl above 3500 !!! The sound is awesome. I will keep the muffler but will tone her down with some resonators installed in the cat delete pipes. I am looking forward to getting her on a AX course in a few weeks just to ring her out a little . I am following Jakes advice on oil changes and oil analysis. I am confident she will be running for a very long time with many smiles per mile

I want this so bad

I had my IMS and clutch done recently and was going to send it to Jake but with being in Canada and the dollar the way it is it would have been very expensive so opted to have it done at an authorized IMS installer in Vancouver. Next big job will hopefully be Jake boring my baby out. Can't wait

I have the lightweight flywheel which contributes greatly to the throttle response and torque perceived in street driving. I chose every other available performance option at the time.



I did not have a blown engine at the time I decided to go for the 3.6 upgrade. This 2001 986S is the third M96 car I've had, and while I never had an engine failure, it was always in the back of my mind. My first Boxster was a 97 and I loved the way it drove and handled but just didn't have the uumpf I was used to. I decided to get one of Jake's engines the first time I read about the work being done in conjunction with L&N. Going for the full blown performance upgrade can be an expensive proposition for a car that is depreciating in value, but I can't think of a better car to spend the money on than a Boxster. The chassis and brakes are up to the task of the additional power already, and while I have not heard Jake say so, I would imagine the upgraded internals would make it feasible to go to the next level of performance with a single turbo.



I don't have any specific performance numbers right now, but I can attest that the car is much quicker and easier to drive fast than my E46 M3 or the 996 I sold while Jake was building my motor. In fact, I believe it is faster than the 930 I had back in the 90s but that was a long time ago and my memory isn't as good as it once was. I know for sure it is easier to drive hard. On the highway it is phenomenal. I can cruise at 70 in 6th gear and pass easily and quickly without a downshift. It is of course a lot more fun to drive in 4th gear at 70 and blow past traffic but in 6th I can get close to 30 MPG. As I said previously I kept the stock exhaust at least for now, but the sound of the intake is so intoxicating, along with the additional displacement, that I have a very hard time keeping my foot out of the accelerator just driving around town. Driven hard the sound reminds me of cars worth 10 times the money.



Reading here that Jake is concentrating on helping DIYers get going with these upgrades is great news. There are thousands of these cars out there that can be bought for not very much money. If you can build an engine yourself and get it back in the car you could have one very nice and highly reliable machine for the cost of a Camry or less. If I could get away with it and stay married I would pick up a 996 and do the same thing, but I need to sell a few cars and a motorcycle before I can even think about it.

My Raby perf upgrade 3.6 now has 30k miles or so. I have added the full Fabspeed exhaust system from engine back. Plus I have the final solution now rather than the original IMS bearing upgrade. I did take the lightweight flywheel out, only because of the racket. I may have lost a bit of throttle response but the exhaust
More than made up for anything that might have been lost. I have had zero problems other than the transmission. I lost 2nd and reverse but that had nothing to do with the engine. My indy rebuilt the whole transmission replacing any parts that showed the least bit of wear. I had him replace the
Lw flywheel at the time. It wasn't cheap but nothing worthwhile ever is. The car runs as good or better than ever. I have slowed down putting miles on the car but only because I am driving a 996 tip to Work. 35 miles each way in atlanta traffic kept my leg worn out. I still
Love the car and I Still think it has
More umph than any stock 987. I havent driven the new 4 banger turbos so have no opinion. I have a lot of money tied up in a car that is worth very little but it doesn't matter as I have no reason to sell it ever really.

I know jake is building some monster
Motors now at 4.0 Maybe even 4.2, but the weight of the 986 coupled
with the power and reliability of Jakes
Motor has kept me satisfied for I think it s been 7 years. I have other cars, but when I want tongo For a fun ride I always choose the 986.
