Porsche 996TT Project
This car came in under pretty bad shape. It has been bought and sold and bought and sold we think because it has had a major running issue. It would not move under it’s own power. Cam codes and misfires on 1 bank. After further investigation we are pretty sure this car was highly modified, then put back to stock after something bad happened with the engine. A few owners have tried to get it running, but nothing has come of it. After a more in depth look, the intake manifold was blown off of one side, so we decided to pull the motor and get a better look.
As I started to pull the motor, I realized a lot more was wrong than met the eye! Simple things like broken brackets….
Missing turbo heat shields which melted the intercooler ducting.
Blown off intake manifold.
Broken quick disconnects.
Homemade vacuum canisters.
Broken intake manifolds
And homemade muffler straps. Quite the collection! Since the intake was blown off on the opposite side as our codes, I decided to do a leakdown test which was not good. Looks like this motor will be getting pulled apart as we have something major going on internally.
