Our Service Packages

Over the years, we have developed a series of Standardized Service Packages which give our customers some certainty in pricing of various services and confidence that their project isn't going to inadvertently go way over budget.

AT RIGHT: This engine received service package 2PC-LB. It's a type 506.

Our Service Packages Help Ensure Both Your Quality And Budget Goals Are Met

Service Package Descriptions

Here we describe each package in detail.


This Service Package is intended for engines with a freshly rebuilt long-block or those that have had new piston rings fitted or other work where running-in is advisable. Note: This package covers the services only. Consumables, such as oil, are not included and are priced separately. Customers with unusual oil requirements should provide the oil they wish to be used.

This service includes:


This Service Package is intended for either new engines or for ones which have undergone significant changes where the tuning may have changed - which could be anything from changes in carburetion to changes in exhaust - in which tuning is adviseable.

Choice of this package requires that the engine be fitted with standard components, or, for non-standard setups, that we agree in advance to use this pricing. (Weber carburetors are fine. For Delortos that use Weber jets, they are also OK.)

This service includes:


This service package combines both Dyno-R (run-in) and Dyno-T (tuning) with a reduced price since when there are a number of tasks in common between the two packages and doing both together means they only need to be done once.


This service package is for customers with a long-block (assembled by us or otherwise) who wish their engine to be run in using our "accessories" (carburetors, distributor, tinware, etc) for the run-in process (Dyno-R). Since in this instance the customer's parts aren't being used, there's no benefit to the customer for the "tuning" of the Dyno-T service, and instead we assemble the long-block to a turn-key engine withour parts, perform the run-in and then return the engine to long-block status. All the benefits of Dyno-R are applied to the engine.


616-LB, 3PC-LB, and 2PC-LB

These service packages share a lot in common and their basic distinctions are differences in pricing. These service packages include all the standard features our organization is known for, packaged as a flat-rate fee.

For the final price to be limited to only the pricing of this package, it is required that the customer provides "a good core." Any parts that cannot be made serviceable with standard practices will be billed at extra cost. For example, if welding is required, that would be at extra cost. Note also that "serviceable" must be understood in today's terms, not from back when these engines were new! In particular, some sizes of main and rod bearings are no longer available that were available back in the day. As we don't have a time-machine, we are limited to replacing parts or taking other remedial action to resolve such difficulties, and, of course, there will be an additional fee to cover such circumstances.

The following tasks are applied to every long-block, as appropriate:

As stated above, major components (those which are not traditionally replaced in a rebuild) must be in serviceable order and / or can be made serviceable with non-extraordinary processes with the following exceptions: new valve guides are included whether needed or not and the "hard-facing" of steel valve rocker contact faces is non-standard elsewhere but is also included in this package.

We will often offer "upgrades" to this service package which vary based on customer need and current pricing, the most common example being for pistons and cylinders.


"Long-block assembly" is for when there is reason to have good confidence in the parts. For example, if a recently rebuilt engine has something go wrong requiring it to be torn down and reassembled to fix an internal problem, perhaps most of the engine needs no attention.

This service provides a standard flat-fee for assembly of a Porsche 3 piece case engine. This includes only the actual assembly, and only from valve cover to valve cover, flywheel to oil pump cover - clutch if provided. No parts, cleaning of used parts, or machine work is included except for the basic gaskets, seals and non-windage pushrod tubes. This DOES include complete reassembly to long-block status. This involves precise measurment of the parts, checking all components, combustion chambers, cylinder heights, deck heights, setting valve spring heights, setting of compression ratio and all other assembly tasks. If remedial action is required, it will be billed as an extra cost.

Trans-CK, Trans-RB, and Trans-2pc-CK, Trans-2pc-RB

This service is for Porsche 356 transaxles. As with long-blocks, the primary difference here between these service packages is with pricing.

Note that from the earliest days, Porsche transaxles had a two piece case, with a right and left half. The earliest cars through June, 1952, were equipped with VW transaxles. With the advent of the 519 type in July, 1952, Porsche got its own transaxle and was fully synchronzied for the first time (except for reverse which was never synchronized). During the production of the 644 transaxle, the case was changed to become one piece, these are referred to as "tunnel type." From that point on, all Porsche transaxles are tunnel type. Our designation here of "2PC" denotes the earlier, non-tunnel type transaxles.

These service packages provide a flat-rate servicing of Porsche transaxles. The following steps are performed:

Premium Engine Services: PS-616, PS-3PC, PS-2PC

These services all combine the appropriate long-block building service with dynamometer run-in and tuning services and also include extra parts, as appropriate to the engine type. The main difference between these three services is pricing based on the type of engine. In addition to the matching long-block service, the service includes:
