  1. yes they are hubcentric photos can be found at suncoast's website or google porsche tequipment spacers aloha steve
  2. the screws are there to hold it in place while you do the bolts some people ignore this step the bolts hold it on without the screw just fine painted parts are available at www.bumperplugs.com installation details should be there too, or just ask eric (plug guy) no affiliation, just a happy customer! aloha steve
  3. :) this question was asked and answered in the past few days aloha steve
  4. the hinges have pins in them use an awl or similar object to press out the pin aloha steve
  5. "price reflects $1,995.00 down payment" it does mention ceramic brakes in the text and the rear wing aloha steve
  6. you may have to search the archives for the answer you seek http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?a...ighlite=%2Bm030 did you try the other boards i mentioned? aloha steve
  7. you'll still get a lot of benefit just from doing the sways. optionally, you can do the complete U.W. M030; it doesn't change the ride height. I'm reviving this thread because there are some very knowledgeable people (Insite in particular) on here and that's what I need right now. I have a 2004 base Boxster w/o M030 and I auto-x with the SCCA in A Stock. I am fairly competitive with the A Stock leaders in their S2000's but need another .5 to .8 seconds to beat them. Obviously, in AS I am not allowed to install the RoW M030 because it bumps me out of Stock class. What parts and part #s do I need to install the US M030? I am allowed to change front sway bar to anything but must keep the rear sway bar and springs US M030 or non-M030 (no mixing and matching between the different suspension packages allowed). I can change shocks, too as long as ride height does not change. I have read about the amazing differences between the non-M030 and RoW M030 on a 986S but how much of a difference between the non-M030 and US M030 on a base Boxster? I can only get -.7 camber on the front, I assume that will not change or is there some Stock legal way to get more? I want to run with the S2000's at the SCCA Nats this year and am looking for help. somebody will be along soon with some advice, but a starting place would be to read these sites http://www.boxcar-racing.com/forum/ http://www.boxsterspecracing.org/forums/ http://www.boxsterspec.com/ aloha steve
  8. not sure what the stated tire pressures are on the 987, but on the 986, i run 32/34 cold (no autocrossing) the recommended tire pressures are something like 32/36 or 32/38 the larger differential adds understeer lowering the differential makes the car more neutral i do know the 987 has higher profile tires than the 986, but the basic theory should hold true aloha steve
  9. do an archives search for LN or jake raby there is also an online guide with you tube videos to a boxster engine rebuild someone also did one on ppbb.com someone will show up soon and point it out to you aloha steve
  10. http://www.google.com/search?client=safari...-8&oe=UTF-8 aloha steve
  11. someone on ppbb.com reported seeing $30k off a 997, but i think it was a 2008 it must be "these tough economic times" i hate to say that :) aloha steve
  12. do an archive search on "intermix" i have a patient in a second, so i'm sure someone will answer before i get back :) aloha steve
  13. aloha doc talk to eric (pug guy) of bumperplugs.com he gave me the scoop on all the different factory finishes, plus he can get the factory parts or paint to match what kind of doc are you? aloha steve
  14. mahalo (thanks) for the reply as you may have noticed, i am in hawaii, so shipping does become a HUGE consideration sometimes also, thanks for the detailed review aloha steve
  15. how often do they run free shipping and how did you find out they were offering the promotion? mahalo (thanks) aloha steve
  16. i can't tell you for sure, but i'm fairly confident that they are almost exactly if not exactly the same you can also buy them blank, without the "PORSCHE" on it just search for aluminum pedals rather than porsche aluminum pedals i have the exact same pedals except i paid a lot more for them because mine say "RUF" on them i bought them as a souvenir of my visit to the RUF Werkes :) a great day- i got to drive the RTurbo that was on the cover of Road and Track and lots of other mags :) aloha steve
  17. are they stock or replicas? where did you get them? they look really nice! aloha steve
  18. 18X7.5 offset 50 in front 18X9 offset 52 in rear stock 2004 550 SE w/stock 5mm spacers search the archives here to see what to do lots of people have used the 996 rims, but i can't remember what they did to make them fit aloha steve
  19. search for ROW 030 this is the european lower sport suspension it is said to handle and ride better plus it is less than an inch lower, so your car looks nicer too aloha steve
  20. i have a 2004 550 special edition it has what look like unpainted calipers in grey and black stickers it certainly doesn't have glossy paint on them like the base and the S i have seen cars that have all the paint stripped/chipped off the calipers and they look gery too aloha steve
  21. i bought from RUF while i was on tourist delivery there are lots of knockoffs that are just like them probably from the same mfg, mine just said RUF, so they were $$$ i like the nubbies and can use shoes, slippers or bare feet on them aloha steve ps- search the site for installation tips email me if you want, i have an email in my sent: folder that has most of the info
  22. great info, jeff do you have any reports of people using auto strasse's or jake's rebuilds? aloha steve
  23. the tubi is not stock the limited edition came with a switchable sport exhaust (you can flip a switch and it gets quieter) it had a few more HP than a "regular" 987S a tubi exhaust is very expensive and there are also installation costs involved can you see if you can get the stock exhaust back from the dealership or previous owner? aloha steve
