    Re: GT3 engine issues again?

    while it's great that Porsche stands by its engine, it's not reassuring to have to 2 new engines fitted.


    Re: GT3 engine issues again?

    Just tell them cylinder 5 had a misfire - led to my new one smiley

    The finger follower issue seems to be solved by changing cams and finger followers. At least that is what PAG claims.

    That just shows that there are different issues... the recall was, if I remember correctly, because of the piston/connecting rod/bolt? What has PAG stated as the issue for the increased oil consumption?

    Don’t think they really know. My engine is going back to Germany for further investigation yes

    I have not heard anything official about the oil consumption.
    My RS do not consume any black stuff (except tires), friends RS got a new engine because of oil consumption.

     


    Re: GT3 engine issues again?

    Sounds like an issue with piston rings.  AP said something about the RS’s piston rings requiring a proper break-in to seal properly (sounds like Kobalt’s did perfectly).

    I think the .2 GT3 has changed Ring design again...
