996s

I have had a few conversations where people say that the 996S has titanium con rods.
I don't believe it does?
Anybody know the truth?

Some early ones did leave the factory with them. A few even with the sand cast SPS engine cases. Cases are an easy spot, only way to tell with the rods is to take a cylinder off and have a look see.
Parts list says defo steel rods and production cast cases though. Early ones appear to be a bit of a parts bin raid on the SPS shelves


.....but better in YELLOW, or Bloo and now even RED

Thanks Nelly.
I'd like to give you the oppurtunity to find out as I'm looking for a big service but you're a little far away from me.
