valve cover was powdercoated and the intake manifold looks to be swain or jet coated.

Quit hatin Porsche o phile. The head was NOT PAINTED!!!! It was hot tanked and sandblasted. My heads return from the machinst the same way. I love the way a new head and new block look. I always try to keep my hands clean as possible when assembling a new motor. It pisses me off when I get small smudges on a spotless surface. If I had the money I would buy one of those motors.

Broadfoot did the right thing. Replace all the sensors with new ones, and all new seals and pulleys etc. That motor will purr like a kitten, and provide another 20 years of good reliable service. I build my motors the same way. Attention to detail and the small stuff is what counts

I only wish the guy that had built my motor hadnt just spray-painted everything, cuse its all flaking off due to the heat. And spray paint will not affect cooling in ANY WAY!!! Its not enough of an insulator to cause such a problem. It might increase oil temps by maybe a degree or two. Big deal. I control my oil temps with my right foot.

wow!! that's very nice. painting rebuild engines is a favorite past time of ours. one summer dad and I built 2 big block 454s and a bb 427, one red, one deep/dark purple, one green. we clean EVERYthing before hand....obviously, because dirt is so harmful to ANY engine, I bet we spent twice the hours keeping parts clean as we did doing actual assembly.

I hear you there. When I am working on my engine, it's usually about 75% of my time is spent cleaning, 25% disassembling/reassembling.

I still think that is a very nice looking engine, and is definately a sign of somebody who takes pride in their work.

When I rebuilt my brothers Range Rover engine (all aluminum), I blasted everything, preped and powder coated the oil pan, valve covers, accessory brackets, and the intake manifold and plenum. I did it all in gloss black and crinkle black. The oil temp DROPPED 25. And the aluminum parts LOOKED like they had been painted, it was a thing of beauty. It's a shame my brother doesn't keep it clean... It's been three years now and it is grungy as hell...

Al Broadfoot has been building Porsche (and only Porsche) engines for 20 (or so) years.

He is absolutely one of the best. All of his engines are show car quality, and that isn't for extra $, he just won't let it leave the shop any other way.

He also deserves kudos because he appreciates and serves the 944s.

An engine from Broadfoot Racing is alot more than just painted!

I suggest you check his site and find out the real goodies that have been done to that engine.

Not to join the frey, however, I had my engine done by Broadfoot and they did an incredible job...belive me there is a lot more than just pretty exterior going on...The engine runs perfectly and has about 30 more horses than the typical NA..not bad considering that my car is not turbo
