    GT3 engine issues again?

    Apparently on Car and Driver blog there's been about GT3 engines with valvetrain problems that needed replacement.

    http://blog.caranddriver.com/some-porsche-911-gt3s-are-getting-new-engines-again/

    Anyone heard anything else?


    Re: GT3 engine issues again?

    Loads of discussion on RL on this issue over past few days.

    http://rennlist.com/forums/991-gt3-and-rs/914162-some-details-on-9a1-engine-in-gt3r-3.html

    Great summary of issues by Macca - post #43

    Re: GT3 engine issues again?

    The good news is that the GT3 RS based engine in the new GT3 R survived the full 24 hour Daytona race, coming second in the GTD class!

    So, the resilience of the engine under race conditons has been proven. 


    Re: GT3 engine issues again?

    24 hours for one car proves very little in light of the 1000's of hours ahead of these engines. It sounds like they are having oiling problems. Not a surprise. 


    Re: GT3 engine issues again?

    Are the recalls still alive and active with the GT3 ? heart

    24 hours in race conditions is worth 1000's of hours of street driving.  A motor like the one in the GT3 is only intended to last around 60-100 hours in race conditions.

    This is why Porsche's extension of the 4-year factory warranty (in US) to track use (no Slick Tires allowed) is such a big deal.

    Re: GT3 engine issues again?

    If I remember correctly, that plug/coil issue only affected a very small number of cars, and was a supplier issue again.

    All the delivered RSs have the plug and coil issue, this is the first time I have seen it apply to a GT3.

    Re: GT3 engine issues again?

    My GT3 been super reliable , just needed a new thermostat the other week and thats it. They said they replaced something else but i cannot recall what it was. On pick up it sounded louder with the Sports Exhaust on and appear to have a fair bit more torque when going at speed along the motorway. Any ideas guys what the OPC completed?, I'm no mechanic, sorry.

    Also beat my PB in it, took her up to 118mph, indecision..
