944 Turbo PPI
Guy from Houston found us online and wanted a PPI on this 180K 1986 944 Turbo. His plan was to fly in and drive home. Car just had a local P-car shop help with an engine “rebuild” and minor service. Car drove out very nice, made boost quickly, great sound from a Lindsey exhaust.
Pretty clean little car but not a ride to take off cross-country in as she sat. First thing noted on compression test was that “rebuilt engine” means different things to different guys. Right front wheelbearing was way out, both CVs super sloopy, and this:
Darn near all the way through the sidewall.
Also, on the rebuild there was this issue:
Fresh oil, dumping right out of the pump.
Once again, we save people much more money with a PPI than is spent.
