I done mine because it was needed, oil pressure problems etc, it was alot of money to throw into it but I knew it would be good when done, problem being now is I've been offered a cat d turbo cheap but realistically couldn't sell my C4 for enough to make it worthwhile, good car with a top engine now though so the turbo could be for someone else

I think for guys who have had there cars a few years based on current prices you wouldnt be out of pocket to spend 8/10k on them . not so easy for guys who have only recently brought them to swallow more on the car but they are still moving the right way in value so who knows . It wasn't long ago you would have laughed at a 996 going for over 20k even the turbo was only in that ball park.and look at them now. Thumb

I've been in contact with Hartech in the last week with regards to having my 3.4 engine rebuilt. Indeed it is closer to the £10K mark for a rebuild. I'm also interested in the 3.7 when it's released.
I've just had a suspension refresh and Ohlins coilovers fitted. Plus gearbox repair and new SMF and clutch. I'm at the point now where I'm not sure whether to get the engine rebuilt. Or cut my losses and go for a 997.

There's a fair few 997's at Hartech at the moment having engine rebuilds. Or are you thinking Gen 2?
