I did some material analysis of the valve using X-ray fluorescence. This shows that it is primarily Inconel, 73% Nickel, 19% Chromium, 2% Titanium 1.5% aluminum (could be surface contaminant) 1.5% iron......
I suspect the Porsche valve guide is made of beryllium copper. The replacement I am having made will be made of a precipitate hardened copper nickel silicon alloy. You can Google Colsibro, that is one of the many examples of this alloy.

The guide is a press fit in the housing, and may need to be reamed after pressing it in. I am going to try to do a thermal fit on my first rebuild unit. I will heat the cast iron housing to 300 deg F and freeze a guide in liquid nitrogen. It should drop right in place.

How far are you? I currently have no problems with the wastegate but I want to put a kit of you in stock.

I expected to receive the valve guides last week, but have not gotten them yet. I have been working more overtime than usual so have not bothered to call the vendor. I will call tomorrow and check on status.
I have possibly had enough people contact my via PM to sell out the first run of parts. If that is the case I will reorder in larger quantities for a second batch. I think that everyone with a 930 will need these parts one day. It's surprising I seem to be the only one making them.

Ok, finally got the new valve guides in. I just got them out of the box tonight. I will measure and compare critical dimensions tomorrow. I will work toward getting a wastegate built up next week. I would be interested in loaning out a rebuilt wastegate for testing and evaluation. If your interested in providing testing services please PM me with your personal test plan.

Measurements of the valve guide look good. I started working up a packaging strategy tonight. Just a few more days before being able to ship. Would everyone who has already contacted my via PM please confirm your still interested and send me your shipping info. I want to check on the best way to ship these out, I am guessing US postal flat rate small box would work.
If everyone who has already contacted me about the kits follows through and pays then the first run of kits will sell out. I will double my order of parts for the next run.
Thanks
David

I do have some extra shims and gaskets, but do not have any extra valve guides for this first run of parts. Extra gaskets cost $17.00, extra shims cost $7.25 each.
thanks
