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.
Porsche Crate 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.
Bavarian and their staff went above and beyond with my Huracan service and repair. I was stranded on the side of the road near the shop and they immediately responded (in the rain as well) to get me up and running and back to the shop. Kind and professional. Highly recommend their shop and personnel.
When I had a recall and some routine service done on my vehicle, I was informed I needed strut replacement estimated at $2400.
I don’t usually shop for automobile service, but since Bavarian Rennsport was nearby, I called them. They responded quickly allowing an appointment for inspection and a quote within a few days. Their professionalism and thoroughness were amazing.
I had revealed the previously quoted estimate and wondered if I had been wise to do that. Bavarian Rennsport came back with news the vehicle needed a pair of struts and brake fluid service, however, their quote was considerably less than what I had received previously. Not only do I have a smoother ride, but I’ve also discovered a service treasure.
I am very satisfied with the work done.
Bavarian R S has state of the art diagnostic equipment.
The technicians are very knowledgeable and friendly.
The booking system is very user friendly
I took my 2020 Porsche Cayenne in for the 30,000 mile maintenance. I was impressed by the professionalism and caring that the Shawn and the Service Technician displayed. It is very rare and exciting to actually experience a business that cares about the customer as much as they do. I recommend them to other Porsche owners without any hesitation.
Superb service, awesome owners n staff.
BR really care about my car and me. My 2008 Mini Cooper has never been in better hands.
Car was in for several issues, when a very serious problem with the engine was discovered and taken care of.
I’m grateful to the owners and staff at BR for taking care of my car in a such great manner.
Had a six year old battery on my BMW that needed replacing and registered Shawn and crew took care of me quickly.
Felt weird initially taking my 2009 vw jetta into this place with Porsche, Ferrari and BMW cars all over the place but they treated me as ever other customer gave me pictures and went through my entire car. Would definitely go back.
My first experience with BR was truly exceptional. I didn’t understand their appointment procedure and ended up waiting extra days for the job to be done, but the ultimate outcome was nothing but positive. Amazing operation.
Italo and his team completed a thorough PPI on a 2015 Mercedes E63S for me. Super thankful I had it done, they caught a number of issues quickly and pointed them out. Very professional service and pricing is on point. Saved me major $ and headaches. All the high-end Lamborghini eye candy at the shop didn’t hurt either!
The shop provides excellent and meticulous service to keep my vehicle in top shape. The owner does go the extra mile to satisfy the customer’s needs. Highly recommend their service compared to other local shops and BMW dealerships.
