Ppi?

Guys,

I am wondering how long a good PPI should take, and what kinds of things extra should I get the shop to check? I heard that leakdown tests aren't normally done on a PPI because they are very time consuming. Is this true?
I hope not because I want as thorough a PPI as I can get as I am looking at getting a 930 and want to make sure it hasn't had the piss driven out of it.

What should a good PPI cost?
How long does a leakdown check take?

I realize a PPI on a 930 will take longer because the intercooler will need to be removed for a leakdown.

Any info?
Thanks!

Not sure about cost, but a compression check and leakdown should be done. The leak down is done on a warm engine.

Good luck!

It's a pain, but don't you think it needs to be done?
