Was it a kaboom or a "slow death"?? In any case, welcome to the forum, you SonofABish!! ;-) I just joined myself, by the way, and already got some personal help from these folks.
Wasn't so much of a Kaboom but more of a slow, grinding death as I shredded the piston bearing and ultimately seized it up.Was it a kaboom or a "slow death"??

As my friends would say, "Pics or didn't happen!" so don't worry, I'll make sure it happens. Engine should be here in a week so hopefully will have some posts up by end of June as I get started.yes, photos please. (btw, no photo = it never happened)
Don, I will definitely be starting a thread in 987 land about the conversion once I have the engine delivered (fingers crossed I have it by next weekend...) and will definitely need some help from the community.I got here a bit late - but better late than never..
Welcome to Planet-9 - the Friendly (as you've noticed) Porsche Forum.
Might you be interested in starting a thread over in 987 land and posting pics as you do the conversion? I don't mean a full-fledged DIY - but some pictures of how you go about it might be fun for our members to follow, and good for you to document the swap for yourself.
Looking forward to whatever you can offer..
Access to post in Classifieds is given after you've posted 10 posts (with significant content - not just "Hi!" or "Great" etc..) in other parts of the forum.But until then, I'm trying to post some of the salvageable parts from the M97 in the classifieds forums in case anyone needs any replacement parts since I've already pulled them but it doesn't look like I have "access" or "authorization" to post into the classifieds. Would you mind pointing me in the direction or to a thread I can peruse to gain more info about posting to classifieds? I've check out the "Read Before You Post" type threads in the classifieds but none of them mention anything about needing said "member access" to post...any info is greatly appreciated Don! Thank!

Get up to 10 and the door will magically open (oh - you also must wave a dead chicken at your monitor while saying Open-Sesame!) (Kidding..)
