My '05 997S engine is a goner...

Well, I don't know all the details yet, but it looks like my '05 997S engine is a goner, kaput. It has 58k miles on it, with oil changes every 5k miles.

At this point it's too hard to tell what happened without closer examination (which will take place on Monday), but it blew out oil, huge billows of white smoke, and it won't turn over.

What's really disconcerting is that I can't get the crank to move at all, even with a breaker bar.

I have no reason whatsoever to believe that this had anything to do with the SC.

If I can get Porsche to help that'd be great, but if not, I'll have to consider all options, and at this point I don't even know what they include.

I am sad, confused, and worried.

Unhappy

I'm sorry it happened.

What were you doing when it blew?

I very seriously doubt that Porsche will give you any help with the aftermarket supercharger installed.

Terry, thanks for your concern.

With all due respect, my friend, while you have a right to your opinion, in this case it's worthless since you are not in the garage with us, have not seen the engine, nor are you a part of taking it apart to see what we are seeing here.

Jumping to immediate conclusions without any information would be foolish. Be patient, we'll know more soon...

Sorry to hear this......
This is the 3rd one I have heard of in 8 months that has had issues...all of which were doing some sort of racing/timed event and I am NOT saying that this only happens when racing!

Did you hear a loud bang or anything else when it went down?
Any signs of power loss before it happened?

Cool

So I'm not entitled to have an opinion.

Again, very sorry to hear. I hope you get it sorted out.

I'll stay out of your thread.

Thanks for your opinion and concern.
However, there is more to it than you are aware of. I will share more details as they become available.

Dang Cattman hate to hear this...but you had a lot of fun with this engine experimenting with a super charger on a stock 997 engine.

If you remember a guy on the forums that went by blacked out.... he did the super charger thing and the engine blew after a while too. I guess chalk it up to a learning experience.

I don't believe in my opinion that Porsche should or will help out on this due to the aftermarket super charger you installed. Maybe now is the time to build a real engine designed for forced induction....I'm sure you'll come up with something so keep us posted.

Oh, yes, I agree, Porsche will not replace my engine for free, certainly not, nor should they!

I guess that is the risk we take with forced induction. PCNA knows my car has a turbo, they said they will have to prove that it's the turbo that causes issues with the engine in order to cover it. They did not say no engine coverage when I asked. So it might be worth trying to contact them if you still have warranty. Good luck, hope all works out in the end. Sucks to hear stories like these.
