PORSCHE CAYMAN ENGINE REBUILD
WHAT WE DO WHEN REBUILDING PORSCHE CAYMAN 2.7, 3.2 AND 3.4 ENGINES
Our Porsche Cayman engine rebuilds include new piston rings, crank/main bearings, con rod/big end bearings, new hydraulics for both heads, new gaskets, seals, chains, tensioners, all guides and new genuine Porsche oil pump.
The engine is stripped to bare components and put into a high pressure cylindrical wash at high temperature with cleansing chemicals,
this removes all carbon deposits and debris from previous failures. From this stage the cylinder bores are checked for cracks etc.
Some may need new liners this would be at an extra cost.
The Pistons are checked and rings are then changed, connecting rods are then checked & re-honed & the crankshaft is then checked.
After this the main and big end bearing shells are replaced, a new genuine Porsche oil pump fitted and scavenger pumps checked.
Cylinder heads are stripped down and checked for wear, cracks and for trueness then pressure tested and the face machined.
Valve guides are then checked for wear and replaced as necessary after this valve seats are machined and valve guides are then checked for wear and replaced as necessary.
Refaced valves are re cut & the head then leak tested. The camshafts are then checked for wear and replaced as necessary.
We also pin the gears of the IMS shaft (helps prevent future IMS failures)

Porsche Cayman History
The Porsche Cayman is a rear mid engined, rear wheel drive 2-seat sports car produced by Porsche of Germany. First launched in the 2006 the Cayman is a coupé taken from Porsche's second and third generation Boxster roadster. The designer of the first generation of Porsche Cayman was by Pinky Lai from Porsche AG. Like the Boxster, most Caymans were assembled in Finland for Porsche by Valmet Automotive (the rest were assembled in Zuffenhausen, Stuttgart, Germany). Porsche's Deputy Chairman, Holger P. Haerter stated that the contract with Valmet Automotive will end in 2012, and the Cayman's production was to be outsourced to Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria.However, as Volkswagen assumed control of Porsche AG, production of Caymans and Boxsters after 2012 began in the former Karmann plant in Osnabrück, Germany, which is now owned by Volkswagen.
