  1. You can Install a K&N filter and archieve almost the same results. I pick mine at www.automotion.com for under $70.00. I also remove the restrictor plate, also known as desnorkle of a 987. Hope this help.
  2. I know the PIWIS is the dealer reset tool; But what OPC stand for. Can you be a little more specific on how to delete the message with an OPC? Thanks in advance.
  3. Try Bumperplugs.com They should come painted and with instructions for installation.
  4. I own a 2005 987 boxster with 8500 miles on the clock. I resently start to see a masage on the center cluster; that I need to take the car in for service in # of days. Did anybody here know how to reset this masage? I don't what to take the car into the dealer for an 8500 miles service. The mesage is a little anoying because it pop up at any time:cursing:
  5. I install a K&N fillter On my 987 boxster as soon it was available on the market. same reason; used on many past vehicles with no problems. So far no problems after a few months of hard driving.

  6. Where I live there's lots of dust and debris in the air all the time, so I prefer to regularly clean the air filter rather than buy a new one every couple of months. I have no worries of damaging the MAS, i've used this type of filters in two of my previous cars and never had any trouble. I just take the time and patience so as not to over oil them. Anyway if the MAS were to fail I would just replace the K&N with the stock air filter. I'm looking for the extra intake sound without having to waste $350 on the Evolution Motorsports intake. Also, in all of the other cars I've intalled th
  7. Wads: I Remove the restrictor plate on my 05 987 as soon that I figure how to remove the vents, but left in place the snorkle. The plate was remove maybe 2 or three weeks after purchasing the car. I actually was looking for more trottle sound. What I notice after removing the plate was a little more trottle sound not really noticiable if you have top and windows up; but quicker respond in the trottle specially if you have the sport button press. So far the car has 4500 miles on the clock and not a single issue. The car has being driven in the hot sun and rainy days too. About gas cons
