Engine rebuild in progress

Air-cooled Porsche engines, whether four or six-cylinder, are famously tough and reliable. They often accumulate huge mileages before needing more than the most basic attention. To ensure that they remain as reliable as possible whilst delivering the performance they were designed to, Porsche engines deserve regular and intelligent servicing.

Should the time come for an expert overhaul, we offer a comprehensive engine and transmission rebuild service, whilst maintaining due regard for the increasing demand for originality and authenticity in ‘matching numbers’ cars. Our engineers are trained and experienced in the full range or Classic Porsche engines and transmissions.

    Rebuilt my Solex carbs on my Porsche 912 - car now running like a dream! Really pleased about this as general consensus from the Classic Porsche community was that … read more I would have to resort to Webbers or send my carbs off to the US.Angus is a real pleasure to deal with, as are his team. I highly recommend them and will be using them again in the future - despite being a 160 mile round trip for me. Cheers guys!
