At first blush, that price seems high. But we'll need more details to be certain.

Iron dissipates heat at a different / slower rate than alum, so your engine runs hotter.

Absolutely. That's why I don't want to go with the FL rebuilder. EvoSpec is using alum cyl with Nikasil coating. Almost eliminates the chance of bore scoring happening again.

It's BS! :(

A couple of wks ago I got the diagnosis I didn't want to hear but was prepared for: Sydney my CSS has bore scoring.

You couldn't get factory 19s on a 986, so Dan is wondering if the pressures he's using are correct since there won't be any labels. I do 32 frt, 37 rear with the 19s on my 987s, so you're close. ...

I googled 'Porsche M96 oil capacity'. Pelican says you'll need 7-10 qts. That nailed it down. The next entry said 8.5L. When I convert that to qts, it equals 8.9 qts. So that's probably where...

DON'T let him willy-nilly put 9 qts in. Have him start checking level after 7. It will probably only take 7.5 to fill. If he just dumps 9 in you'll be overfull, which is just as bad as...

Be sure to check what material is used for the cyl liners. If it's not alum, your engine will run hotter, which is not a good thing.

I use Castrol Syntec / Edge 5w40. We probably have similar weather conditions. But you use whatever you like. Just change it every 5K mi or annually, whichever is lower.
