    Thank you to everyone showing interest. Paint metering photos have been added (all original paint). A cold start video has also been taken and is awaiting Pcar to post. Please reach out to see this 997 in person or a FaceTime walk around can be arranged.

    @m3b This 2008 probably has a M97 engine. But they too have scoring concerns. I personally don’t see much difference in exhaust tips in picture 77.

    Bore scope analysis is always helpful but in it’s absence a cold start up and engine idle video can be helpful. In general to anyone trying to sell the 996 through the 997.1 scopes can give insight and some piece of mind. The whole issue may be over blown but not according to Jake Raby.

    Bore scoring inspection performed? Photo #77 has noticeable soot on LH exhaust, none on RH exhaust. LH exhaust is fed by right-bank cylinders #4-6, most typical bore scoring cylinders in M96 engines.
