89 944TS

With the 88 out of the garage, I had a good friend make his way down from South Dakota to fix some oil leaks on his Alpine White 89 Turbo S.  We tackled the belts and front engine seals on this trip, hung out with some good friends and just had a fantastic weekend.

Yup, that is an engine Jones……

Removing the cam gear.

Back together after the front end seal and belt job….

No more oil leaks…..

And some final cleaning and adjustments to the hood latch mechanism.

We were even paid a visit by local celebrity Stephen Kaspar, lol……in a suit no doubt!

hey doc, thx for the info on the plugs for my 996 turbo. looks like you were right, the only code I know so far was plug 2 misfiring. the mechanic will check the coil too. since the car has apr chip and exhaust do you recommend different plug?

    I would replace the coil for #2 while you are in there, along with the plugs. The coil pack is less than $100. Stick with the FR6LDC even with the aftermarket program. The original plug used in the TT was updated from an FR5, so you will be good to go!

Had a great time with Doc Wilen Racing, Banger Industries and the KCWS. Now the only problem with the car is the nut behind the wheel!
