I guess the guy from Nissan who didn't use nylocks on the butterfly valve found a new job.

Scary such a small thing can have big ramifications.


Porsche did not say how much it will cost to replace the 785 engines. The new engines will have "optimized fasteners," the company said.

Why don't they just replace the "optimized fasteners" and may be some other parts surrounding the fasteners ?

I'm sure they're still making good money on each one sold.

Might be faster (and hence cheaper) to just pull the entire motor.

Porsche can always tear down, rebuild, and resell the engines it pulls from customer cars.
