Seems clear that Porsche have dropped a pollock with the turbos.
I’d wait to see what they have to offer and then mullet over.

If he needs two new ones, it may be worth upgrading to larger ones to give the car a bit more Mussel.

Can't believe all the fish taking on this thread. Laughing

But back to the original point, was the car with the failed turbots a 3.0 litre or a 3.8 litre Question

And what caused the failure Question

They seem to have an oil flow problem. Seen it mentioned regarding the GTS.

Obviously a major issue which now renders any 991.2 or 991.1 turbo cars worthless. Makes the n/a cars worth a million pounds of fish Thumb

It does not affect any 997 cars though thumbsup

OP stopped updating so the devil made work for idle thumbs and we all got distracted with a bit of thread diversion...happens a lot during the quiet months.....sure OP will be back soon with an update.
