    996 engine rebuild?

    Hello, I am looking for input from people who have rebuilt their 996 engines with stock parts or with racing rods and pistons. I am wondering if gasket and seal parts are available and what forged rods and pistons have anyone used. Any info would be greatly appreciated. If you guys don't think this would be a good idea please let me know.
    Thanks

    Re: 996 engine rebuild?

    I saw a place awhile ago selling rebuild kits (rings, bearings, gaskets, etc) for the m96 motor. I'll try and dig it up. Sooner or later you're bound to start seeing hi-perf internals becoming available as these engines age, go out after warranty, and the cars start to trickle down the socio-economic ladder so to speak. It's a good thing.

    give these guys a try.

    Did you had a blown engine? If so, it's easier to buy a remanufater motor from Porsche. They sell them for 5500 euros and you have to give your engine in exchange. You get two years warranty. Just make a call to your dealer, i'm sure he can get you an engine in no time.

    Sure about the price?... A similar swap with a 996 TT engine is about EUR 19k in Switzerland. Not the same league, but 5.5k for the M96 engine seems quite low.
