Getting ready to drop $20,000 on engine overhaul

I just rebuilt my engine over the last year. I had a broken head stud causing a high leak down on the #6 cylinder that initiated the rebuild.



If it comes to rebuilding the engine Contact Chris at TurboKraft about supplying bearings for your engine. I believe he's using Porsche Motorsports gt3 main bearings and clevite rod bearings with coatings. Also make sure to use the better gasket kit by wrightwood racing.



You seem hot to trot on rebuilding an engine that doesn't sound like it needs a rebuild.



Good luck.
No smoke and.. don't drive it enough to know if Im burning oil.

I'm only looking to have the rockers/valves/guides done. But we will see if this is a option.

What did it cost you?

I've always lived by the words, don't fix what isn't broke. Put some miles on her this summer and take it from there.

Last thing I'll say about this until hear from the shop.

I'm not looking to spend $$$ on this. If I don't have problem then awesome!

I'm not wealthy and don't just have $20,000 to blow.

But if there is problem I want to fix it. That's all.

There's one sound that remotely sounds like a "sewing machine". That's a dry cam lobe/rocker. That means clogged cam tower spray bar. For your sake, I hope it's not....

What about paint too? The original paint is old now and should probably be replaced.

Shouldn't the focus of this whole post shift to the facts that are established. The engine appears to be better than good and healthy and the owner is paranoically imagining scenarios not entered into evidence . And everything would be answered with a simple compression and leak down test. And I'd venture to say that all of the shops he is shopping are either crooked or incompetent for not ordering the leakdown and compression tests before agreeing to whatever they are wanting to do

No shop told me they wanted to overhaul the engine..

I wanted to if needed.

Two shops told me a top end overhaul was out of the question. They only do complete overhauls.

The current shop is looking at the car now.

Make sure they take out the old air in the tires and put new air in.

Compression and Leak-down tests are an invaluable tools, but don't leave out mandatory visual and auditory inspections. A simple "tick" sound can be misinterpreted as a mechanical noise and actually be an exhaust leak. For those who have worked on these engines, this is common sense.

While I understand the desire to have your 930 "right", the only way you'll know if its "right" or not is to drive it. 1700 miles in 20 years? Who cares how it runs? As long as it moves under its own power you're fine for your use case. Take the 20k you were planning to spend on the overhaul and buy a beater and spank the crap out of it daily.

I hear that Paul, a compressor incarnate, is capable of activating a Shrader valve using only his mouth, perhaps proving invaluable in this sort of endeavor should the OP, with everything else he's already fretting over, decide that new air is in order.

A lowly Shrader valve?!?! Hellz, Paul can activate the main, hydraulic cylinders of the most ginormous of ginormousness forklifts in existence, and not even get tired in the process! The bisch can huff and puff like no other (only IcyHottStuff gives him a run for his money)!

Ok engine is in good working order. He said he didn't hear any valve noise that is not inherent with well a maintained 3.3. I was told I have a very nice car and well maintained.

Now the bad news.

The clutch is bad.
The motors mounts are VERY bad.
The CIS injection system needs gone over.
The cold air circuit is not functioning.
Several wiring issues
The ride height is wrong.
Several parts missing from the car.

That said I'm fixing EVERYTHING he can possibly find. The bill is around $14,000
