    How are GT3 Engines Made?

    Have read previous posts about carrera engines being built by a few people and the turbo engines being built up by just the one engineer right the way through.
    As GT3 engines are higher performing and more technical than the carrera engines are they built up by a individual specialists like the turbo ones?...also I note that in Evo they dynod the GT3 engine at 429 bhp, so presumably one can expect generally a little more than the Porsche declared figure?

    Re: How are GT3 Engines Made?

    All Porsche engines are assembled indivdually by one tech on a moving horseshoe shaped assembly line from start to finish.
    All engines are dynoed as the last step, to assure min advertised horsepower.

    Re: How are GT3 Engines Made?

    When I did the factory tour, the guide told us that if the engine put out too much horsepower it was sent back to be rebuilt too. I think the spec was min of advertised horsepower and max of 5% over advertised horsepower.

    Re: How are GT3 Engines Made?

    There are three lines in the engine room in Zuffenhausen. The first line makes 2.7 and 3.4L engines for Boxsters and Caymans. The second line makes the 3.6 and 3.8 modular engines for 911s. The third line makes the split case engines for the GT3 and the Turbo. The experience and pay of the assemblers goes up as they go up the lines. One man builds each engine, BTW.
