Maybe an engineer will give a really sound answer.

I'd say they are a replacement item. They don't last forever, though they may get blamed for problems caused by something else. Not super expensive, and new ones give you a base line.

If the bolt - #4 in the parts diagram - is oriented as shown - which is how Porsche installed it, how are you going to get it out after you remove (or cut off) the nut? It will bump into the torsion...

My guess is that the one system which most needs attention is the fuel system. Over time fuel can turn to a jell. The tank can be drained, and various methods used to clean it up. The fuel pump...

This is a 66mm crank, so no need for more than 110 lbs/ft or whatever the factory spec is. Which leaves a rather large safety margin of the elastic range of the bolt. Engineers have always told me...

Porsche race cranks from back when had larger radius fillets, which necessitated narrower or otherwise adapted rod bearings. But I don't think that much!

The one on the left is from an '84-89. It has an extra bracket welded on, which is for the pad thickness sensor wire. The others are earlier.

Studs don't get preload. You don't really need to worry about them backing out when you remove nuts later on - a minor annoyance. But Catorce gives you what you need - bit of blue Loctite. Over...

Someone may have put a 911 on a Spintron, and so would have relevant data. Might have to warm the engine to operating temperatures before spinning? I can't say as I have seen this.

Pauter rods should receive some consideration.

An SC or 3.2 oil pump would be a nice upgrade - you don't need a Turbo, 964, or GT3 pump.
