PCA LA x BBi : Tech Session 02.16.2019

Once again we had the pleasure of hosting Porsche Club Of America (PCA) members from the Los Angeles chapter (PCA LA) at our facility in Huntington Beach for a shop tour and tech session.

We wanted to share our projects, passion and knowledge with the local enthusiasts, focusing on what might be of interest to the PCA members in particular. BBi offers a wide range of services including maintenance, restoration and rebuilds. We have a wealth of experience with how a Porsche can wear and how to best keep it running, be it simple routine upkeep or thorough overhauls.

BBi is, after all, a speed shop and we talked about our product lines for chassis, powertrain and safety upgrades and how they can enhance the ownership experience of new cars or rejuvenate the older models.

Our engine builder discussed nuances of aircooled and watercooled engines, fuel types and best practices for maintaining or tuning. Its not often that one can get a peek inside an engine and we have a full assortment of Porsche engines to explore.

BBi now hosts a series of racing events, geared towards new drivers who seek track side support and instruction. This is something that was created specifically for those who are looking to push their cars in a safe environment with some expertise and assistance.

Some even got to enjoy our driving simulator!

We hope the PCA LA memebers enjoyed the visit. Our doors, emails and phones are always open for questions or insight. We are happy to be welcomed by the PCA LA chapter and look forward to hosting more events, helping members and servicing their Porsche vehicles.

Porsche 997.1 GT3 RS Coolant Pipe Welding Retrofit

Bonded together by adhesives, the factory coolant pipes failing is a very common problem with the Porsche GT1-block equipped models (GT3, GT2, Turbo). As the best preventative fix/solution for this problem, BBi Autosport offers replacement billet aluminum coolant pipes to be permanently welded. Compared to the factory fittings, the replacement BBi billet fittings offers superior metallurgy to allow stronger, higher quality welds. We offer this complete service at our facility in Southern California from start to finish.
