My new project for the ULEZ


Recommended Posts

I really did not want to buy another car, but the government has forced me to.

I could not pass this one up it arrived this morning.
 

2002 Porsche 996 3.6 315bhp Full Leather high spec car.

Only fault needs an engine rebuild, really looking forward to it.

The 996 generation is definitely the best value for money out of the lot, and no reason for it to be cheaper than the rest, as it’s a very capable car. People don’t seem to like the headlights but I think the headlights in facelift form look great, it’s only the pre-face light ones that haven’t aged well - I guess it’s like marmite really.

What’s the actual problem with this car then? IMS bearings gone or something?

Hope you keep using the zed still!

Hi oh yes not selling the Zed it will become a weekend car and trips to shows.
I do like the look as well, funny how this 3.6 litre is ULEZ Compliant.

The car has a lot of carbon build up and bore score, the engine turns over freely so I hope it’s just new liners, bearings and IMS.

Glad you’re keeping the zed then and probably best to get a daily to keep the zed living on long term. I’ve just bought an e46 330cd as a daily, which I don’t think is Ulez compliant. But my old 3.3 Lexus was compliant! Some of the cars that are compliant really do confuse me.

Let’s hope those are the only issues then and looking forward to seeing updates.

Great project mate good luck with the rebuild.

Yup - what he said....

.....I like the 996 and would definitely have one myself. I know 911 purists lament the air-cooled versions, but they weren't necessarily the most useable. I know of 993 owners having to pull over for a half hour break from a journey in the height of summer, to let the engine cool down. Sod that, if I have a journey to complete, I'd prefer to complete it. 996 all the way, I say.... ?

I have something to say............ It's better to burn out than to fade away..... :tt2:

Car finally in the tent, spent last 2 days in the freezing cold clearing it out. We had to push it into the road, turn it round and up a bit of a hill into the tent. Was not funny.

Finally got some work done on the Porsche. It’s been hard getting to the garage with this lockdown.

Engine is out and not looking to bad at the mo, but still need to strip it down, after this cold spell I will get it on the engine stand and get the rusty exhaust bolts out or snap them off. I purchased an ATV Lift and lowered the engine and box with my engine hoist and jack on gearbox.

Started stripping the engine down last couple of days, no big surprises, better than expected, bore score on cylinders 4, 5, & 6, IMS bearing in excellent condition. I will send the blocks for Hartech closed deck aluminium alloy cylinders with Nikiski plating and new or reconditioned pistons.  There was hardly any metal in oil, will get the crank out tomorrow and see what condition the shells are like.

Engine fully apart now, it’s best case scenario for me, I was always going to upgrade cylinders all new shells three new pistons and three refurbished.

Complete engine gasket kit. The heads I will clean in my new parts washer and lap the valves a little.
