Hi Submerge..this does not make a sense to me..

They pulled the engine, found a valve cover leak, rocker arm shafts where worn and creating a leak and one other from an oil line to the reservoir. I got a new turbo valve cover (mine was warped), replaced lines. I also mentioned the car ran hot, multiple time in traffic. The sealant for the oil return tubes had dripped down onto the case (black and hardened drip)....
if i do an egine rebuild i would check the rocker arms and shafts.The only way it would leak would be they did not install the shafts in the right place.
Also who gave you or who`s hands an idea to use on the cylinders the Curil?? I have never seen that and i have never had to use anything on the copper rings when i do engines.Also what sealant is leaking from the oil r.tubes there should be nothing on them except a little oil while installing the camshaft housings.

You are sure they know Porsche 911 engines??
