PCA TechTactics East coast 2019

Attended PCA TechTactics East Coast 2019 on Feb 16th. Great event at the super Porsche East Coast mechanics training facility. Met, attended their sessions and had individual discussions with Charles Navarro, Pedro Bonilla, Lake Speed and many others. All very willing and open to talking about the 986.

Excellent all day event hosted by PCA.

Thanks for sharing Fred. I've never gone because I figured it was only for the newest stuff. Next year I may go.

Hi Paul, you’re welcome. For sure there were sessions on the new 992 and the new virtual vision technology for Porsche dealer techs, but there were also sessions on restoration, oil analysis, impact of modern fuels and oils on classic cars, classic car market trends, after market exhaust systems (Akrapovic), etc.

Best to check the curriculum on PCA dot org for details to see who is presenting and what the topics will be. There were three session tracks this year with some common sessions. My primary objective was to meet Charles and Pedro but it was a great day overall. The training facility and east coast parts distribution facility are impressive.

Thanks Fred, I will check that. Would love to meet Charles since my rebuild has the 3.6 LN Nickies, the LN solid steel oil pump shaft and the Permanent Solution. It is finally finished too, my shop is just waiting for the roads to clear up a little more so they can road test it and give it a final check over!
