Wayne,

I would agree with you 100%. I should have mentioned in a previous post that when one of these high stressed VR6 or 1.8T turbo motor fails, it may not be the fault of the pistons themselves. My bad, didn't mean to alarm anybody. Some of these kids are running over 20 psi of boost!

Like I said, I don't have any experience with JE in 911 motors so I will certainly defer to you and your experiences. I just figured that if we were having quality control issues than other people probably are as well. JE's will probably work just fine in alot of cases, but mine won't be one of them!

FWIW, if the Mahle's were not available and it meant staying 3.2L or putting bigger JE's in, I WOULD put the JE's in if I could source a good set of cylinders.

I'm tired of nothing below 3,500-4,000. A 3.5L twin-plug will change that!

Ralph
