Well the oil cooler has been pressure tested and is fine. Engine coming out and bank 1 head getting stripped and inspected first.

If you can pull the plug tubes out on bank 1 you might well see the crack. You don't need to strip it. If a tube has a lot of oil in it I would check that one first. You might not even need to drop the engine.

So my intermix issue turned out to be due to 2 cracks in my bank 2 head. Replacement head sourced today. It’s been blasted, skimmed and pressure tested and the numbers match on the head/rocker cover/bearing caps.

Looks like you are well on your way. We seem to have had a few of these on here recently.

No way! Great news and congrats!

Are we allowed to ask what the damage was?

I’m trying not to think about it Surprised

Anyway, I highly recommend Unique Porsche in Bolton. They did an excellent job, fantastic attention to detail, great comms throughout and nowhere near as much as it could have been. Total was under £4k, including £600 for the head, which needed a new valve seat (it had already been skimmed, soda blasted and pressure tested). I had new cam chains and guides whilst it was apart, plus a few other bits. My air con works now, too.

Also confirmed all the Hartech work had been done: uprated IMS and bearing, cylinder strengthening, coolant mods. It should be pretty much bullet proof now (fingers crossed).

12008s but still a good value outcome I think.

I’m fact in some ways an even better one. You now have a fully sorted car, which is a know quantity, and still all for the cost of an engine rebuild.

Welcome back, enjoy the car with renewed confidence!

Cheers! That’s my view: I know exactly what I have now. Hopefully it’ll be fine for the foreseeable future.

Hey well done, you've now got a great 911 Carrera - in time that small cost price will pale into insignificance as the values rise for these models, yours is a chaep car considering how good it now is. Thumb

Cheers both! I'll settle for not depreciating and not costing me any serious money for the next couple of years.

Just found this thread Dave, didn't realise you bought it from Sterling, they seem to have interesting stock and I like the try before you buy concept. Looking at past ads there was a black C4 with aerokit in July which would have been perfect for me but alas I don't have a time machine Laughing
