  1. Here is some info concerning the exhaust setup of a 987-2, that is the Boxster and Cayman made from MY 2009 to 2012, also known as the DFI, gen2, mk2 or facelift versions. The 2005-2008 987-1 Boxster and 2006-2008 987-1 Cayman have an exhaust system with the primary cats inside the left and right manifolds and the secondary cats are installed inside the left and right exhausts. Although the 987-2 exhausts look pretty close to the exhausts of the 987-1, they are not the same and that is where the confusion starts for some. The 987-2 exhaust system has , just like the new 981, the primary cats AND the secondary cats inside the manifolds. There are no cats anymore in the exhausts of the 987-2, even though it looks that way. Therefore, if you are replacing only the left and right exhaust boxes on a 987-2 with another exhaust -and keep the original manifolds- then you are not deleting the secondary cats. The only way to delete the secondary cats on a 987-2 is by replacing or modifying the manifolds. More facts : The 987-2 primary cats are 400 cpsi (cells) not 700 or 800. (see picture bellow) The weight of the left and right standard 987-2 exhaust is 2x 6 = 12kg = 26.40 lbs The Sport tail pipe+ center pipe clamp +2x strap+ 2xbracket : 3,55kg Total : 15,55 kg = 34,21 lbs The weight of the left and right CaymanR exhaust (no PSE) is 2x 5,72 kg = 11,44 kg = 25.17 lbs The CaymanR tail pipe+ center pipe clamp +2x strap+ 2xbracket : 3,55 kg Total : 14,99 kg = 33,98 lbs The 987-2 PSE exhausts weigh 7,6 kg/each = 15,20 kg = 33.44 lbs The PSE tail pipe+ center pipe clamp +2x strap+ 2xbracket : 3,55 kg Total : 18,75 kg = 41.25 lbs As you can see, it is not possible to save 40 lbs when installing aftermarket exhausts even when they are made in Ti. All the 987-2 (and 981) exhausts are made by Eberspacher whereas the 987-1 exhausts were made by Eisenmann. These original 987-1 and 987-2 exhausts are not interchangable as the intake pipes have a different length and the flanges are under a different angle. There are a couple of versions, but the typical 987-1 standard exhaust weighs 7,9 kg/each = 15,8 kg = 34,76 lbs (excl tail pipe and hardware). This is the 987-2 standard exhaust opened up : There is no catalytic inside. Here you see the 987-2 manifold showing location of the primary and secondary cats : This is the primary cat of the 987-2 exhaust system. Count them yourself : 20 x 20 cells per inch = 400 cpsi and not 700, 800 or .... I hope this helped.
  2. Check your email :). If the car drives prefect, then it looks like you only need to have the alignment checked.
  3. It's a Carrera 2 with aerokit RS. It is not an S model which is a wide body.
  4. The Cayman R has a special version of the PSE. These are different from the factory installed PSE on any other 987-2 and the PSE retrofit.
  5. You need to order the dash switch separately. Btw : is superseded by the new version PSE

    GT3 PCM2 Install

    Loren, does that mean you can retrofit the Most bus into the '04 GT3 ?
  7. Yuck, what a cheap looking installation ! Why can't they hide the DVD player in the center console or under the seats or even in the armrest !
  8. Here is a picture of it : http://www.rennteam.com/showflat.php?Cat=0...=true#Post35396 It's pricey and still full of bugs so I'm told.
  9. The left and right mufflers have changed from part # so the sport exhaust retrofit also got a new part #. I picked up a new sport exhaust yesterday ("21") and I didn't see any external differences.
  10. Try pushing the odo/trip reset button and then turn the ignition on. I accidently did this some weeks ago and saw a message a la "service reset" on the dashboard.
  11. The steering wheel is leather. BYR must be "8YR'. 8YR stands for black . The other part # 996.803.089.02 is a leatherette airbag. It is missing the color code. For black, the part# should read 996.803.089.02 A28
  12. On the inside of the wheel you should find the Porsche stamp. (a "P" inside a triangle) Porsche recently changed suppliers for a lot of parts, it's possible that the new wheel is from a different supplier.
  13. The silver "Carrera" script is 996.559.237.10 4PU The other one (996.559.237.07 4PU) is superseded by this part#.
