Forged Bored and stroked 4.0 Mezger, currently at Fearnsport. 996 casings.

Alpha 3076 Turbos (xona rota)
Big bore manifolds
Injectors to suit
Rebuilt, ported and pressure tested heads
LA Liners
Genuine porsche bearings throughout
CP Pistons
Crower Billet crank +4mm
Crower I Beam Rods (standard length)
New oil pump with clearance
82mm SRM Plenum
GT3RS 82mm Throttle Body
12mm Studs with inserts in casings
Every Gasket and screw replaced
All new hoses
New Power steering pump
All coolant lines welded
Professionally assembled and all tolerances checked
Many receipts and new parts (chain tensioners, water pump, oil cooler etc, etc)

£NLFS. Remember, I don't want your old engine, so you can instantly take 10k off this price. And the price includes turbos.

Total spent to get it to where it is: £32k+

Reason i'm selling, like any decent project, its taken too long and i've lost interest, i don't get much time at home and i'm working all the time, plan is to sell everything and buy one nearly new car. 2019 wont see me with much time this year.

I'm not expecting this to sell quickly - might even finish it if i cant sell.

Needs fuel rails, other than that it's good to go. All built.

I've never spoken to Matt about warranty, I guess like any build it's either parts or workmanship, no one on here would doubt Matt's work. All parts are new.

Pics from Nov 2017. Was waiting for Turbos from tial at the time. They are brand new xona rotas with top gear headers, milltek couldn't supply. Should be a bit further on, if not I'll get the turbos fitted and the inlets on. Haven't been down for a while!





I know 18k is a lot of money, but these engines arent cheap to build. It's half what I've spent. The power steering pump was over £500, oil cooler £400, main bearings I think £600, all new valves and lifters, springs, chains, etc..

Turbos are good for 1000hp. There's a bit more capacity to spin them up too.

I may or probably am being a bit dense but will it fit both 996 and 997’s more from a DME/communication point of view?

Sorry if it’s a stupid question

I don't know. Is it the same variocam system and sensors? I'm sure it could be adapted, the main difference would be the 997 plenum and inlet configuration, but I know people use them on 996's, but you'd need an expert's opinion on what might need adapting.

Super deal for someone considering how much you can spend building a forged engine. Someone will need an engine soon.

996 and 997 turbo engines are interchangeable - they're virtually exactly the same. 0-300kph in circa 20 secs or faster with the right tune with that engine.

Definite bargain.

You can't even rebuild a normal capacity engine with forged bits for that. Ask me how I know.

I've increased the price slightly after some evaluation, however if anyone is seriously interested, I am open to negotiation.

When you consider you'll have your own engine and turbos to sell, this makes it incredibly good value.

Now if you could shoe-horn this into a 997.1 S that has no engine in it.......

A sensible move considering the parts involved, but more importantly, the guy who built it Thumb

So I've got back to the UK had a good think about it and I've decided to crack on. I wheeled it out the garage and have it a wash and seeing it outside the cover for the first time in 3 years is enthusing me, so be good to see it finished.

Engine back on the stand for final assembly..

Good choice OP! Glad to hear you are seeing it through to completion. I for one am looking forward to seeing it preform!
