Angry Boxster cylinder sleeve slippage

Hi all, can anyone tell me if the this was a prior engine repair? and can the block be repaired?

It looks like the cylinders were sleeved.

Thanks
Juan

Classic cylinder liner slip, common on the early 986. All M96/97 carry liners,but only the early cars suffered this type of failure.

Anything can be repaired if you massage it with enough $100 bills.

I don't know if the cylinder can be reset. Probably not, but it wouldn't hurt to ask a machine shop guy. It would be nice if you shared what year and displacement the engine is. My limited experience is that it's almost cost effective to find a low mileage used replacement engine and install it. 2.7 liter engines seem to be fairly easy to get for reasonable money. 2.5 liter engines seem to be a bit rarer.

“Resetting” a slipped liner is a bad idea, unless you are just trying to slap the car together and dump it on some unsuspecting dude. If it slipped once, it is going to it again.........

From a PCA article many years ago.

Slipped Sleeve Mid '98 thru early '99 engines had major internal engine slipped sleeve problems that would cause total engine failure. Porsche replaced all the engines that experienced the slipped sleeve problem under warranty (and many after warranty). A replaced engine is a good thing as the replacement engines have actually been more thoroughly tested than the ones put directly into new cars. I know of nowhere where it lists a manufactured-after date or an engine serial number after which the problem was corrected so that you could know the problem will not affect a specific car.
