Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet – Engine RebuildPorsche 911 Carrera 4S 996

Last week at Meister Werks European & Import in Renton, WA, next to The Renton Landing, we completed a engine rebuild on this Porsche 911 / 996 Carrera 4S. We pulled the engine out and found that bank 1 (cylinder 1, 2 & 4) have very low compression on 2 & 3, zero compression on cylinder 1. We knew right away the engine needed a rebuild. The block was stripped all the way down to the block and rebuilt with all new components. This also included new IMS bearings.

Next we had the heads remachined and all new valves installed. That followed by new head gaskets, timing chains and guides. New water pump and other key components were also replaced.

After the entire Porsche engine was finished we restored this engine back to it’s 2004 glory. This AWD Porsche flat 6. 3.6L boxer engine puts out 315 hp and 273 ft lbs tq.

We will also be breaking in the engine for the customer, which takes about 1000 miles. No red line and no excessive idling will be allowed until after the break in period is over. After that period, we will need to drain the break in oil / filter and replace it with fresh oil. After the break in period, the car can be driven normally or taken to the track for some hot laps.
