Just saved 5 grand - and had fun in the process

Finished the 30 K maintenance on my 911 Turbo :
- oil change
- transmission & differential oil change
- brake fluid change
- spark plugs & coils
- fuel filter
- re-oil air filter & clean MAF
- new water pump
- coolant change (now that is bitch on a 911 !)
About 12 hours spread over 3 weekends. Fun project and very relaxing after a week in the office. Cost me about 1K in parts, would have been 5K at the Porsche stealership. And the best news : no extra bolts left when it was all over !

Attached some pics. Last pics shows the inside of a turbo.
Spark plug change is insane since following items need to be removed : rear bumper, exhaust, intercoolers, lower the engine 2 inches.

Already had it up to 130 mph (on a closed track). Feels like new.

I've always liked the work you did on that garage floor.
Great to see it again after several years still looking tip top.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

New Site Garage
Reminds me that I need to do oil and plugs on my turbo, too...but I never had to drop the engine to change the plugs. I know some don't even remove bumper/ICs, but I think a lift is needed in that case.

Nice work...cheers!!
