1999 Porsche 996 engines seem prone to grenade and blow cylinder sleeves. I just asked my dealer how much an engine costs and it's 9k plus 2k for install. Not cheap.

A company in the UK called Autofarm can repair these failures by replacing the cylinder sleeves with a 'silsleeve'. They can also bore it out to 3.7L for the 3.4L and 4.0L for the 3.6L. If they had a US distributor then I'd almost call them to do it on my working engine.

I sent them an email to see if the new sleeves are better than the old ones. They can also update the crank shaft to a newer one which solves RMS once and for all.

Anyway, I'll post more as I find out.
