My 2 cents

My 930 was rebuilt using used pistons and cylinders, all within tolerance. It has about 800 miles on the motor, it puffs a little smoke on start up occasionally. I was told this is normal, because as the car sits with the engine off, the oil in the cylinders drains to the bottom of the cylinder (horizontal). This excess oil burns off and thats the smoke you see. I had the engine compression tested and leak down tested. All 6 at or above spec and 0% leak down. For what its worth, my 99 Boxster also does this...

Anyway the 930 runs great...and it's blast to drive
