New m96 on the way!

Our friend Woody put me on to a motor that was rebuilt/refreshed by a friend of his. Itís a 3.2 with new bearings and rings, ims, water pump etc. Iíll try to get some video up on my channel soon about this and the post mortem on my trashed engine.

Would be nice if it has upgraded internals, at least rods/bolts.

You're a brave man NewArt!

Thanks. If I don't have it and know someone that does, I'll pass on the info. I need to start charging a commission as it seems I sell more of other people's motors or transmissions than mine

He used new rod bolts. The motor was suppose to be for one of his race cars. I'm not sure of his M96 rebuilding skills but I know he's rebuilt lots and lots of air cooled motors. Here's us working in one part of his shop. He mostly restores/ back dates air cooled 911's but races boxsters as a hobby
