Going with replacement Mahle ones, looked at the LN Eng Nickies but can't justify the extra cost. 10K on pistons and liners is enough for me.
Should have a nice power and torque gain.

Finally made a start on the 964 today, the engine has been getting done in the background but the strip down of the body started today. Interior up first, I'll get some zip loc bags tomorrow and hopefully some plastic storage bins for the parts.
I'm tearing most of it apart for a full repaint and colour change.
Interior wise I'm wanting a change from the factory blue to umm, something else. I have a set of MK5 Recaro buckets but a measure up of them today looks like they might be too wide to fit so as a back up my Recaro Pole position style full carbon seats are probably going in.

Time to get serious with this, sent the car out few weeks ago to have the rear lid gaps corrected as the back of the body was 5-7mm out of square. No evidence of a crash but from what I understand these are pretty weak in the back and simply sliding in to a kerb hard enough can cause this damage with the weight of the engine moving things around.
Gentle pull on chassis machine has everything fitting nicely again.
Cleared space for its return which has finally given me a nice carpeted area to work on stripping it completely for a colour change, not feeling the blue with blue interior.
It will be stripped pretty much to a shell and rebuilt from there up.

Since a repaint and colour change is first on the list I'm trying to decide on a colour.
The list so far is
Grand Prix white
Slate Grey metallic
Graphite Blue metallic

Audi colours on Porsche... Might as well suggest Nogaro Blue.

But seriously, I think any of those options will be sharp on a 964.

I vote Slate Grey. Is it going to stay a 964, or are you going to backdate it?
