$399.00 – online registration only.

Join Jake Raby and Tony Callas for an introduction to Porsche’s 9A1 flat 6 engine. Whether it’s an understanding of the engine from a stock repair stand point, or whether you’d like to build a high performance engine, this class touches all the bases.

This online class familiarizes the attendee with the differences between the 9A1 and the engines that came before it. This class also provides an understanding of problem areas with engine internals and even unique service directives that have never before been associated with a Porsche automobile.

Attendees of this class will benefit from the “first hand” content of this class and the photo documentation that Jake Raby has gathered since he began working with the engines upon their first application in 2009. Though these engines are the current and latest generation of Porsche flat 6 power plants, Jake has already experienced the pros and cons of the engine design and has developed several products and procedures to make the engine a more robust performer. With the 9A1 powered Porsches completing their warranty periods every day, its important for technicians and shop owners to understand the issues and challenges they will soon be presented with in their shops.
