After dropping the car off at Jaz Porsche in Wembley on 3rd July the engine was quickly whipped out and the strip-down commenced.
Steve and Dave (his engine man) let me know subsequently that it was the dirtiest 911 engine they’d ever encountered both internally and externally.
Externally the cylinder cooling fins were completely blocked with dirt and assorted crap. Internally it was the same story with some very horrible gloop clogging up the MFI fuel metering pump and the guts of the engine. Not good and a clear sign of issues to come.
