2.0T with DSG

I test drive another yesterday that was doing it too. How weird
I didn't really feel like building the motor so I contacted a fellow Porsche owner who is probably more OCD than me
and thus I trust 100% to do the job right, he had recently taken his motor apart to seal some oil leaks so had done all the research in to what sealants etc to use.
Over the last week he has completely disassembled and catalogued the motor, a few minor problems found but over all things look really really good.
Certainly seems genuine mileage looking at all the components, he questioned the wisdom of stripping the whole thing but I said take it apart, want to know what's inside so here we are.

Hiya, I just bought an 1986 GT Coupe on Trademe. Really pleased to own this car, I've been wanting one for ages. I have relocated it from AK to Whanganui, it's the only one in town as far as I know. I am looking for a rear left hand tail light (smoked), and a right hand electric window motor/regulator if anybody has these parts!
Over the years I've done bits and pieces to it like fitting a 997 GT3 center muffler with custom headers and exhaust valves.
Made my own wheels, turning 16x6 Fuchs in to 17x10.5 by using BBS RS barrels and lips, still have to make the fronts as they will be 17x8.5 or 9 if they will clear the GT2 front brakes.
Since we are all looking to revive the forum again I thought I'd post up what's been happening with my old 911.
Been sitting for a few years while I tried to finish the T34 which has just dragged on an on, we are very very close now though and it was high time something happened with the 964.
Decided to do things differently this time by rebuilding the motor and gearbox first.
So, week before last the engine and gearbox came out. Its only done 100km so not expecting to find much but its very very leaky so early on I decided to tear the whole thing apart and inspect everything.
First job was to get it out of storage and as luck would have it the fuel pump had seized from sitting which as it turned out was a huge headache to get at, half a day later and 5L of petrol spilt on the ground it was in my hand.
Soaked the pump in degreaser over night and bench tested it, back to life!
Another epic struggle to get it back in it fired op right away with fresh fuel.

All back together - time for a test drive. It feels a bit better but still runs out of power at about 5000 rpm.
The intake hose is slightly twisted so might be deforming under boost - need to loosen it and sort it but it's a pig to get to.

Just checking.. yep the coolant stayed in.

Took the wife for her first ride in the car. She pointed out about ten things wrong with it that I haven't got to yet.
Then we broke down in the shopping centre car park - not quite enough charge in the battery to start the car. She got a bit grumpy because we needed to be somewhere and I had to call the AA for a jump start from a booster pack.

Today was more successful - I took Rusty to the Capital Rodders Swap Meet.
Longest drive yet - Tawa to Upper Hutt. Coming back over SH58 made me grin. Must sort out the rear wheel rubbing issue though!!
