That said, I've just shipped of my engine to one of the three Posche Classic Centres in the world for them the evaluate the engine longblock parts. I'll probably ask them to finish of the longblock as I will get some good papers on the job. The rest of the job I do entirely by myself. They charge 25 hours to build the longblock since I've already have it in parts. I'd probably spent 2 months doing the same job over the weekends I've got.

I'd love to share some experience. The biggest challenge I've had this far is a rounded off head stud barrel nut.... that was a real PITA!

Looking forward to follow your progress.
Please start your own thread around working with the Porsche Classic Center, that will be very interesting! For the OP - don’t be afraid to clean the case yourself with toothbrushes, green scrubbing pads, razor blades, simple green, brakeKleen, water and elbow grease, followed by a high pressure air blast (leaf blower is good). It will take a while but the results will be good.

As of today.. everything except my fan and fan housing, and intake runners have been delivered to Ollie's Engineering. (I need to have the intake runners cleaned and ported and polished and the fan media blasted to give it that new look)

The have the following:
1.) case
2.) crank
3.) rockers
4.) pistons @ cylinders
5.) cam towers
6.) pulley
7.) flywheel
8.) pressure plate
9.) upper and lower valve covers
10.) chain housing and covers
11.) head assemblies

I'm going to have them clean and inspect everything, fix any damage, port & polish everything that can be, and then figure out what performance upgrades to go with.

I expect to get everything back by May, as I'm estimating 10 weeks out.

While they are working on the engine, I'll plan on taking the front end of the car apart and getting as much hardware (oil lines, front fenders, etc...) off the car to have it towed to the local body shop to have some rust spots repaired.
