Watercooled Nickies

Watercooled Nickies

When rebuilding a Porsche M96, M97, 9A1, Turbo/GT3/Gt2 Mezger, or Cayenne S/Turbo 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 cylinder issues associated with Lokasil and Alusil engine blocks.

Re-ringing your isn't 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, taper, and surface finish. Most shops don't have a profilometer, let alone precision measurement devices. 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 or liners replaced in the case of the watercooled Mezger engine, 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 associated with Lokasil and Alusil engine blocks including, but not limited to d-chunk, cracking, and scoring failures. Nickies cylinders with NSC (nickel silicon carbide) plating, similar to Nikasil, 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?

    SKU: 106-29

    $849.00

    This Faultess kit includes many specialty tools not offered anywhere else to aide in the assembly of the M96 and M96 engine, most designed with feedback from attendees of The Knowledge Gruppe's hands-on M96 engine rebuilding classes.The kit contents includes:

    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.
