Powertrain Performance

As a renowned independent PORSCHE specialist workshop, we have decades of experience in the qualified overhaul of all PORSCHE engine types.

 

Based on this we can offer you an optimised reconditioning procedure for the water-cooled aspirated engines of the 911 and Boxster/Cayman series, as well as Cayenne V8 petrol engines and the transaxle models 944 + 928.

 

The well-known wear problems of these engine series in the cylinder wall area are remedied long term by shrink fitting of cylinder liners made of spheroidal graphite cast iron (GGG) into the engine block. This iron-carbon-silicon alloy, which is produced using the centrifugal casting process and has properties similar to steel, is characterized by high mechanical and thermal resilience. Consequently, this alloy is also perfectly suited for high performance engines.

 

In combination with a MOS2 coating on the piston skirts tailored to the special cast iron alloy, wear of the cylinder walls is significantly reduced and the service life of the engine is significantly extended.

 

By using this process, damaged 3.8l engine blocks of the model 997 S, which often show cracks on the cylinder wall, can also be reused in most cases. Pistons with slight wear marks can also be reused thanks to the MOS2 anti-friction coating. This means, your vehicle remains matching numbers and you benefit from a significant reduction in costs.

 

During the final honing of each cylinder, the final dimension is adjusted exactly to the diameter of the associated piston, so that a perfect and equal running clearance is achieved. Additionally, running performance, wear behavior and oil consumption of your engine are positively influenced by this.

 

By using innovative technology and most modern tools as well as optimised processes and extensive quality controls, we guarantee a high reliability of your power unit.

 

With our optimised reconditioning procedure you also benefit from our extensive experience in the automotive industry in the sector of engine testing with state-of-the-art test benches, engine development and wear research.
