EVO 10 Engine Build - Project update

This EVO 10 was brought into us with engine damage, we diagnosed a number of faliures with the engine including a spun big end bearing, damaged rod and crank case damage.

We spoke to our client about what options they had and they decided to upgrade a number of components allowing for a safe increase in power with more reliability.

We supplied and fitted Marley pistons, Manley rods, ARP head stud kit, crank case stud kit and conrod bolts, ACL race bearings, a Commetic head gasket, Garrett Turbo-charger, equal-length header, downpipe, we renewed the timing chain and guides, skimmed the head, intake and exhaust valves cut and seated, new oil cooler and oil pump, Walbro fuel pump, injectors upgrade. To increase gearbox reliability for more power we have also up

Next up is to run in the engine over 500 miles minimum before dynoing and mapping the car.

997 Porsche 911 Engine re-build due to cylinder faliure

This 997 Porsche 911 C2S came to us as it had a number of different noises coming from the engine bay, plus there was smoke coming from the exhaust.

We could see straight away the engine was burning oil, the smoke from the exhaust was the giveaway.

We know there is a common issue with nickel cylinder liners on the 3.8 litre engine as we have rebuilt so many of these engines now. But we perform a full diagnostic to be sure of the root-cause.

We used a bore scope to inspect the cylinder liners and pistons. We found 2 cyclinders on bank 2 which had pick-up, this is where the piston starts to wear away at the cylinder wall and this in turn causes oil to get into the combustion chamber (above the piston).

We stripped down the engine to confirm the fault.

The remedy for this fault is to rebuild the engine with steel liners taking the place of the original cylinder walls.

Please see the pictures below showing some of what we did.
