Exciting times for us here at Cavendish. We have finally finished the 1968 Porsche 911 engine conversion for a client of ours. Our client has owned the cars since the early nineties.

Statistics published by manufacturers and motoring organisations confirm, that water is the root cause for 60% of engine breakdowns and 40% of catastrophic failures.
