    The 911 used to be really popular in the uk and it became known for being a pain in the arse to run.

    The VW Wasserboxer was another air cooled engine that was converted to be water cooled with pipes and hoses and shit running everwhere.

    Damn you Hoovie! Literally watched your video and the exact same thing happened on my 997 Turbo. Engine out and I only just picked it up yesterday.

    Hoovie, i'm not sure but I'm getting the feeling that the wizard is ripping you off with labor money.

    Could you imagine you found a different mechanic? The wizard would be bankrupt and out of business. Don't bite the hand that feeds wrench boy.

    Are the 2004’s the same? That’s the last of the 996

    not sure if the same is true for that Porsche but... for my 911sc it was pretty much designed for the engine to be easily removed. probably not the case for a prius.

    I think it may work out cheaper for Hoovie to just buy the Wizard's garage and employ him full time.

    I can't cry for you. Those astronomical prices is what one gets for having such cars.
    No sour grapes here, but welcome to automotive reality.

    should have just threaded the hole and gone with AN fittings. looks like engine could have stayed in as well this way.

    Can we all agree wizard isn't actually a wizard? He's clearly been gifted godlike powers from some holy being. Being a demi-god isn't magic it's more of a religious experience

    "Excellence was Expected".....Porsche book by Karl Ludvigsen...... "they don't make them like they used to".....ahh... no sh_t !!! Shame on you Porsche for this and the many other truly stupid engineering gaffes you've done since the "good days" long gone that built your reputation. Had an 85 911 that was built to an altogether different standard.... not much of a Porsche fan anymore.

    Also's revenge of your license plate number.....986 = Boxster.....996 = 911 cars.

    Ahhh,....simply changing plugs or doing valve adjustment on my 3.2 Carrera goes easier with an engine drop. If you've dropped a VW bug engine it's no longer such a big deal.

    @hoovies garage , you’re a smart man I think you’re like Leno on a budget these days . Wizard is your personal mechanic and his shop is your hangar for your overflowing inventory . Just tell us the truth that wizard works for you and this whole operation is the brainchild of yours.

    I'm pretty sure those are the original wheels from a W140 Mercedes S class. Maybe even coupe.

    Here in Germany, a lot of people drive them on their (often times lowered) W124 and W201.

    OMG my heart melted u rolled that Diplomat in at the beginning ! I had an old 85 5th ave that I swapped a police/taxi 8.5 rear end into and did an intake, cam, carb, ignition upgrade (to the 318) when i was in HS and College...absolutely loved every bit of that car!! It was silver and had the silver (I guess) interior, the pillow leather seats were AMAZING. Miss that car so much!!

    $120,000 for a car and they can't do anything better than glue coolant pipes in. Yep... Porsche builds nothing but shit, too.

    Hoovie just has money to burn and make bad decisions? He must have won an inheritance? These are the worst cars ever made. This must be a conscious decision to buy the worst possible stuff. This has to be some kind of joke? It has to be intentional. It's worse than Three Stooges dumb here. Somehow it appeals to folks. Why though? Is it the stupidity? The ignorance? It seems fake, somehow. No one is that foolish. It has to be staged and intentional, like running full-speed into a garage crammed with a giant hornet's nest. This must be the Johnny Knoxville of car shows.
