We now have the R35 GTR engine stripped because we found low compression from one cylinder. A few other issues we have found were better found now! A loose crank bolt caused the crank pulley key to be heavily damaged, this would of caused the engine timing chain to slip and destroy the engine. We also found a large boost leak causing one of the turbos to over spin and damage the turbo internals! Now to put it back together correctly.
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.
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.
We recently had this Jaguar XF come in, we diagnosed the water leak and set about fixing it, unfortunately this means engine out.
We have since found and rectified the water leak and carried out a full inspection and service.
Our client brought in his EVO X today, the complaint was lack of power and the engine seemed to be running on only three cylinders…. he was right but little did he know his engine was running even with a huge hole in the casing!
