Anyone know this car? Red 87 auto. P0JB0928HS860957





87 S4 Auto from Texas and then Wisconsin.

I have pasted a link from when it was for sale at various locations.

I am going to put the engine in my 87.
Trying to get an idea of the PO's maintenance tasks.

I don't think I would be willing to install an engine without perfect documentation unless I pulled the heads and did the usual timing belt and water pump.

Thatís the plan right now. Wondering if I should send my current heads out or have these done. Also curious about the lower end. If the thrust bearing is good then I may leave the rod bearings alone and just do the pan gasket. H

Bottom end, whole short block really is usually fine, but head gasket frequently have issues, same for valve guides. For me parts from Porsche cost too much to shotgun them replacing everything worn or not. As long as you have a good shop that knows the 928 and has the right jigs etc, sending out the heads is the way to go.

Do a compression and leak down test to get an idea of the condition of the rings etc.
