Porsche Engine Rebuild

New Porsche Engines

Most Porsche engines will never reach catastrophic failure when following the factory OEM or Bavarian Rensport’s service and maintenance schedule. In the case that a failure does occur the possibilities of faults can range from the vehicles internal components suffering from a cooling system failure or an oil starvation problem. When the engine components fail it will result in a non-operable vehicle that will require a factory crate or remanufactured engine. When replacing an engine, it’s important that you choose the right replacement option based on your needs of the vehicle. Will you be selling the vehicle after the repairs are finished or are you keeping it in the family till the wheels fall off? Bavarian Rennsport understands that clients will have different needs and budgets, as well as other constraints (warranty coverage, for instance) which is why we offer to either, have the engine rebuilt or install a new one.

Crate Porsche Engines

The best option will always be a Porsche crate engine straight from the dealership. Crate engines are more expensive than remanufactured engines, but they’re guaranteed to be in OEM condition and have a factory warranty that could allow the vehicle to last twice its expected life expectancy. A crate engine will have the same lifespan as the engine in a car just rolling off the assembly line, therefore a crate engine will be the best long-term solution for customers who plan to keep their car for as long as possible.

Rebuilt or Remanufactured

A rebuilt engine involves removing the engine from the vehicle and completely disassembling it. Once the engine has been disassembled, cleaned, and inspected, all damaged parts are replaced with new or refurbished replacement parts. All new gaskets, seals, and lubricants are used in the assembly of the rebuilt engine that will meet Porsche OEM standards. The most common components to be replaced include bearings, gaskets, seals, timing belt or chain, valve springs, and the oil pump. Major parts are replaced only if they are needed, and often include camshafts, crankshafts, and pistons. In the most severe cases, we will have to machine parts that have been exposed to excessive heat causing them too warp and not align with their corresponding parts. The advantages of rebuilding an engine are the connectivity and compatibility with the existing ECU and electrical system. The ECU is programmed to communicate with the engine originally installed in the vehicle. When a new engine is installed the ECU may have problems connecting and communicating with the new engine. When the engine has problems communicating to the vehicle it will require either a reprogramming of the ECU or replacement. A remanufactured engine option is a great option for vehicle owners that don’t plan on keeping the vehicle or possibly trading it in because it will have service reports and a 2-year 24,000-mile warranty.
