Watercooled Nickies

When rebuilding an M96 or M97 engine, there are many considerations when evaluating your options. With thousands of engines fitted with Nickies over the span of a decade, no one has more experience than LN Engineering when it comes to solving M96/M97 cylinder issues.

Re-ringing your M96 or M97 engine isn't even an option for most rebuilds, however most engine builders re-ring engines after only doing a visual inspection of cylinder bores rather than measuring the cylinders for ovality and taper. Most every used engine we have ever inspected has more than the allowable .002" ovality and taper specified by Porsche.

It is a guarantee if the engine has not been sleeved, the bores are out of spec on even a "fresh" rebuild. If the bores do happen to be in spec, there is also the issue of other known modes of failure: d-chunk, cracking, and scoring. Nickies address all known cylinder weaknesses.

Steel sleeves, although inexpensive, have limitations including increased friction, reduced cooling, and shorter service life than our NSC-plated Nickies featuring all-aluminum construction. Why use anything less than the best?



BESIDES NICKIES™, LN ENGINEERING OFFERS AN EXTENSIVE LINE OF PARTS AND UPGRADES TO ADDRESS MOST OF THE KNOWN M96/97 ENGINE'S ISSUES DURING REBUILD. DOWNLOAD OUR REBUILD GUIDE AND NICKIES + IMS PROGRAM BROCHURES TO LEARN MORE:

    WHEN REBUILDING AN M96 OR M97 ENGINE, THERE ARE MANY CONSIDERATIONS WHEN EVALUATING YOUR OPTIONS.

    Re-ringing your M96 or M97 engine isn't even an option for most rebuilds, however most engine builders re-ring engines after only doing a visual inspection of cylinder bores rather than measuring the cylinders for ovality and taper. It is a guarantee if the engine has not been sleeved, the bores are out of spec on even a "fresh" rebuild.

    Through our exclusive Nickies sleeving process, we have overcome the d-chunk, slipped-sleeve, scoring, as well as taper and ovality issues associated with Porsche 986/996 and later 987/997 models.

    The price shown is for all six cylinders on the block process.
