    Exclamation Live: Cayman Engine Swap - with photos!

    Follow along as we take the engine out of a Cayman and swap it with another. I'll be taking pictures throughout the day in order to document the entire process from beginning to end. I'll try to answer questions as I can.

    I will be uploading images directly into our gallery here and then posting in this topic thread and updating as I can.

    Here are the first set of images...

    Review topic called "Scariest Cayman Video Ever" for video of the inside of my current engine. When my engine was rebuilt in 2008 by my local Porsche dealership they messed up. I'm now correcting their mistakes!

    Re: Live: Cayman Engine Swap - with photos!

    Is this engine going to be repaired and put back in or is a different one going in? Are you upgrading components?

    Re: Live: Cayman Engine Swap - with photos!

    Good luck! I had a catastrophic engine failure on my '06 Cayman S at 52,000 miles. No warranty coverage. At least I got a newly rebuilt engine from Germany. Still it was expensive and frustrating. Also took months. I am glad you are posting pics. It will be interesting for me to see how many hours of labor it takes.

    If you don't mind me asking, what happened to the engine? Thanks

    No these cars are NOT bulletproof, just read all the topic threads about oil starvation issues, rod bolt failures, etc. My engine failed in 2008 and was rebuilt by my local Porsche dealership at Porsche's direction. In doing so they screwed up the reassembly of the engine to where it caused the engine to use lots of oil. Video of the inside of the engine is available elsewhere on this site. Basically my engine was a ticking time bomb, might run for years, might crater tomorrow. I'm replacing it with another engine from a newer year in the hope that it puts the engine issues to rest once and for all.
