Engine failure on Porsche 996 – Ian Couch

Having just experienced this failure on my 996.
It is at present under repair.
I thought it might be worth sharing with the other members.
Just in case?

I decided to do a bit of investigation & learning.

Here is a bit of info you may find of some interest?

Having read this. On completion of the repair.
I plan to change the oil & filter again, after about 4000 miles.
