    993 Valve Guide Repair Cost

    Estimated cost from your experiences? Any east coast shops to contact?

    I ID'd a nice 993 but want to factor valve guide repairs into my maintenance estimates.

    Re: 993 Valve Guide Repair Cost

    I think I'd estimate around $5k. Don't forget to have the SAI (Secondary Air Injection) ports cleaned and/or enlarged too, so the Check Engine Light doesn't come on too soon.

    Steve W. at www.rennsportsystems.com is a great resource, but you'd have to mail your heads to him in Oregon...

    $5k??

    Re: 993 Valve Guide Repair Cost

    I would suggest finding someone with actual prior experience rebuilding a 993 engine. A lot of places subcontract the work out (and pretend otherwise ) but luckily in Connecticut you have a large number of shops with genuine experience taking apart the model 993. Two of the best are;

    Automobile Associates
    Albany Turnpike
    Canton, CT 06019
    860 693 0278

    Hairy Dog Grrrage
    Daniel Jacobs LLC
    115 Hurley Road, 6A
    Oxford, CT 06478
    Tel. (203) 262-0569

    Depending on where you live you might also want to check out the Connecticut Valley Porsche Club of America for the location of other shops.

    Well, that would include a full valve job, not just the guides. This should not need to be done very often. Lots of 993's have well over 100k miles and burn no oil - guides are just fine...

    Of course, if you find a car with aftermarket guides already done, this will likely never need to be repeated.

    Ok I fell a little better now.
