  1. I used a 3.5 inch metal tube and mated the MAF from my original with silicone and rivets. It works fine plus made a cold air intake box out of aluminium to relace the stock air box. 3.5 inch Silicone tubing connects the tube coming out of the new air box to the Throttle Body..
  2. I keep having problems with my hood popping open. I have tryed to adjust the front latch several times but when hitting bumps or taking hard turns it won't stay shut. Are there any tried and true methods for adjusting the hood latch. Thanks 2000 Boxster :renntech:
  3. Engine height I lowered my engine 1.5 inches in the front and 3/4 of an inch for the trans mounts. Cut a small grove in the under side of the firewall just above the intake manifold and file the intake manifold ridge 1/4 of an inch. No problems.. Have fun!!
  4. It takes about 600 miles but keeps coming back on a 2000 Boxster 3.4 O2 sensors Bank 2 P1276 code 22 and Bank 1 1275 code 16 Are these the front or rear O2 sensors Thanks :renntech:
  5. I have a 3.4 non egas Throttle body and ram tube if you need one?
  6. Does it have a light weight flywheel? If so the rattling is normal
  7. Be careful mounting your injector rails. I used the 2.7 rails on a 3.6 and had the injectors to deep into the manifold, it cost a big power loss.. .020 of an inch difference made a big change in the power band. You really can't notice until you are running full throttle in higher gears..
  8. $5500 out the door? what did it cost to ship it? m As far as the number of miles you can also check the number of hours the motor has.
  9. I used a 3.5 inch x 12 inch exhaust tube that I placed my MAF sensor mounting section that was cut out from my original Boxster manifold, I also cut out a section of the metal tube so that it is open below the mounting section then rivided the mounting plate at four points on to the larger tube with some heat applied to slightly flaten the mounting section. A little silicone between the two surfaces helped with a tight seal. It is located in about the same location as it was when stock. I made a cold air box out of aluminium which has a K & N filter. The first filter I had was to restrictive so I had too go to a larger filter. At the end of the steel pipe is 3.5 inch Silcone Flex Tubing extending to the Throttle body from the cold air box. :renntech: Hi George, I also have a 3.4L converted Boxster that continues to get MAF related CEL's. I have purchased the airbox lid from a 996 3.4L and have had the MAF Housing professionally removed (i.e. Cut Out) to install in the Boxster. On my conversion, the builder installed a resistor inline with the MAF to block the signal and ran the conversion with the stock Boxster MAF housing. The plan is to remove the resistor, install the 3.5" MAF Housing and a K&N Kone filter intake. Due to my work schedule I won't be able to complete this for the next couple of weeks but will update once completed. Cheers, Michael
  10. My spring side of the disk faces toward the flywheel if that helps but I had to have my flywheel machined by Spec Clutch to make it fit!
  12. Heat is also a good technique... would you heat the bolts with a torch? Yes I have biut it was a small propane torch!
  13. P0102 which is the MAF sensor but was thinking that maybe the O2 sensors maybe the root cause. Thanks
  14. Using Durametric system Should the O2 readings be the same for bank 1 and bank 2 front and bank 1 and bank 2 rear? :renntech:
  15. With a Durametric Should the readings be the same for bank 1 and bank 2 front and bank 1 and bank 2 rear for the 02 sensors? :renntech:
  16. I am not sure how accurate the R 1's are as my car has some 57,000 R-1's and no r-2 and I always shift closer to 7,000 rather than 7,200. The revlimiter may be set wrong
  17. In order to get the proper toe alignment you will need an adjustable track arm to replace the one that has the cam adjustment. Porsche calls tham track rods.. The trailing arm is the one from just behind the seat to the hub carrier in my way of thinking.....
  18. You probably only need to change the inner section of the split arm. Not sure of the toque for the split sections but check a chart for that size bolt. But before you tighten the bolt that connects the arm to the car it should be siting in a weighted position. Hope this helps...
  19. Catman: The 986's for 2003 and 2004 and all 987's came equipped with a glass windowed top. They have four bows (instead of the original three), but access to the engine compartment is nearly the same. In the 2003 and 2004's the tops came with a velcro'd strap with a loop, and that strap is used to hold up the rearmost frame part of the top. Not sure about 987's but I would bet it's the same or similar. Regards, Maurice. Maurice Thanks I have to put the top up at a higher angle than I am used to on my 986. catman
  20. I am trying to get the back part of the Convertable top up away from engine compartment. I have own an older Boxster with a plastic window and its simple as the plastic window flexes. The newer models have a hard window which doesn't bend So how to I get it out of the way so I can access the engine cmpartment?
  21. 2000 Boxster Under Center Consol there is an unused electric plug that has a Red and Green - Green and Black - Yellow and Black and Brown wires. Can this plug be used as an electric supply? Thanks :renntech:
