Cayman 718 GPF Failure

This is the reason why I continue to push on with this information, these AOS parts should be tested every time the car goes into a Porsche Dealer, or Porsche Specialist.

This is a really important engine part, that can cause a lot of trouble.

Couldn’t agree more Dave. An AOS condition check every 2-years would go a long way to nipping in the bud any failures before they become catastrophic, especially on cars fitted with a GPF.

Maybe just change the aos at set miles at service, but I like the prevention is better than cure thinking.
Tedious job on the 987.2, hope it is easier on these later cars?
Not sure if this is relevant to Dave's research, but this just popped up on Rennlist - a burnt out GPF on a 4.0 engine after 31k km:

Probably not Dave since he’s swapped the original cats for higher flow 200-cell units which could well have had something to do with the GPF failure.

I doubt that he’s bothered, but try getting that past the dealer for a warranty claim!😀

Cheers Jeff - I suspected as much but thought I'd mention it as it's the first I've heard of with the 4.0 engine.
