Damn! I am so envious of your expertise and the satisfaction you must get when that engine runs.

What will you do in your kitchen now? I remember you shaving connecting rods or something and breaking out your trust beam balance.

Seriously, it's an inspiration for those of considering tackling radio delete plates and other smaller scale jobs. Really cool to hear it came to life the way it did. Ditto for more pics, video, etc!!

Congrats.

thats a good feeling when it fires up and runs when you turn the key isn't it?

I would break it in for at least the first 500 miles with dino oil and change the filter too when changing the oil. you will be surprised all the little boogers of gasket sealant and other stuff that is down on the oil sump plate after the first 2 oil changes.

Yes it was a fantastic feeling when it started yesterday and it still is today. Frank, xbmwguy was over and he was there when it started and ran after reindexing the distributor gear too.
I changed the oil and filter today after only 65 miles on it. Why not, it's only a good thing and with the external thermostat, long oil lines and large B&B center front oil cooler in my car there's around 2 quarts of oil that stay behind.

I still have a bunch of Valvoline 20W-50 VR-1 non synthetic and synthetic oil I bought at Autozone 2 or 3 years ago when it went on sale for half price. With it still around I don't mind changing oil frequently. I stocked up on Mann oil filters a few years ago too.
There were no metal shavings particals or metal dust stuck on the two magnetic drain plugs either. Thats a good feeling too. This time I'll let it go around 500 miles before changing the oil again.
It sure is nice to hear it start and then drive it again!!

I'm looking forward to your build thread. Hint hint!

Great job JFairman, your feat is even more impressive considering you did it in a driveway with no garage!

(the big end of the connecting rod had become a little oval/eggshaped like all stock Porsche rods do after a while)
and a nice K27 7006 turbo.

I took it out for a drive last night changing rpms a lot and accelerating and decelerating a lot. Havn't taken it over about 4200 rpm or .6 bar yet.
I'll drive it some more today and then change the oil.
Both 964 cams are timed right at 1.26 spot on.

It has more low end torque and pep then before which is really nice for around town driving. I guess thats because these heads were machined down .018" more than the heads that were on it so compression is a tiny bit higher, it has freshly reground ground valves and valve seats, and new valve guides.. and the brand new Mahle 3.3 pistons and cylinders are much better than the ones that were in there.

!!
Good on you JF,
Hope you used a Torque wrench for at least of your build?
pls tell me you did ?
If you didnt you might start a bad precedence lol


Hope she boosts like a banshee when you let her fully rip

Good deal Jim, glad you're back in the hunt!
Looking forward to hearing your impressions of how she runs with the changes.
