  1. after doing some more research, i will try and clean the MAF again, although i cleaned it kinda when i was installing the intake, that was maybe 50 miles back... also, ran to autozone, they comfirmed the codes that i was getting as well
  2. i have a simple obd2 reader, came up w these two. based on my booklet: p1123- throttle positon sensor range but higher than expected p1125- throttle position sensor intermittent btw, its a 98 2.5 manual, only thing done to it engine wise was a Evo intake anyone have any suggestions? any help is appreciated in helping me fix this thx, DJ
  3. even when installing a intake, i put in a evo one, it asks to remove it
  4. hi, i am looking for different modifications on boxster muffler does anyone have a image of cut and modified exhaust ? i have a 2.5 i was at first gonna do the mod where the 2 pipes are added to the side, but no shop around my are can handle smaller tubes for soem reason and lastly, i was also thining fo making a custom one with magnaflow mufflers and twin outlet tip, so if anyone has any experience with either or i would appreciate the help thx in advance
  5. what did you guys use to clean it up? i installed a intake on my box the other day, and while i had the MAF out to trasfer into the new tubing, i whiped it off with a soft tissue, there was a lot of black stuff around there. with new intake, cleaned maf, and desanorkel, i absolutely love it
  6. just cut it out and call it a day, its too dificult to even try. best way to do this what i found was take a screw driver, a flat one, and just push down on them, they break right off
  7. dude, i have no idea how u managed to screw up to the point that you did w the brushon kit. i did all 2 of my calipers in short period of time w GREAT results, best part was not masking anythign off
  8. 5700? wow man, u coulda gotten a 3.4 outta that, used of course, but still... glad u enjoy it tho
  9. i just had one installed the other day, wow what a difference. it does feel a little different than the stock one, a little harder to get into gears, but much more shorter, i love it. and as for the inserts, i dont know, i dont think theres a need to upgrade to anything.
  10. does the white one not even have a retractable spoiler?
  11. this is the buildup that im talking about (BEFORE ENGINE CLEANING)
  12. looks like they did a good job on the front, then someone said "lets just completely ignore the back and sell it like this, im tired of designing this thing" and the main guy agreed and here we go... :)
  13. i have a 98 2.5L that just hit 60k miles while i was cleaning the engine bay i foind some oil buildut kinda stuff around the J-tube(i have a picture back home, i will post that up when i get back). my Q is this, where is the best place to get the seperator and possible part number, also for the hose as well, and how hard is this to DIY (i saw the writeup for a carrera but no boxster). if i am correct i shoul dbe getting a lot of smoke, but none so far, i just wanna tackle this before it actually goes bad, and since i saw some trouble on surface i think it may be going bad soon, correct? i found on this site one for $81. does that sound too cheap? anyone have any experience with this distributor? http://www.prostreetonline.com/catalog/por...r/oilseparator/ where can i get the J-tube? thx
  14. yea wow, after 3 hours, i would have them pay for some of it couse it didnt even last you few hours
  15. its relly hard to get any hp outta these cars, for sound those will be great tho
  16. is there a way that i can find out how many 986 were factory painted ocen jade green metallic? and more advaned i guess how many in year 98?
  17. Yeah but thats 2 hours of me not driving! :cursing: Lol.. So you painted them with 2-3 coats, did one side at a time I'm guessing with a jack. You left 20 mins between coats tops and put the stickers on kinda wet and put the wheel on to cure with heat and time. So 60 mins total per side wheel off three coats, stickers wheels back on kinda thing.. Hmmm... I have a heat gun too, could help with drying time... What did you use to paint? VHT Caliper paint and paint it on or somehting you brushed on? In the past I used VHT caliper paint sprayed it into the cap, and brushed it on, works great. But never turned out glossy... i used caliper painting kit from Murrays (also found at autozone), its the brush-on kit. the way that i did them was lifeted the front on both sides, painted one coat on one wheel, and then went onto the other side, cleaned up and put one coat on that side, then went back to the side i started and pu another color. waited few mins and put another coat on other side. then i did the same thing to the rear calipers. they turned out great, i did a few cars with came can of paint, and still have a lot left. when i first saw the can i tought it wont be enough for one car, but i did a few cars with 2 coats per caliper in all cars. i painted my calipers before the decals showed up, so then when they did show up i just took one wheel off at the time and applied the decal.
  18. why would u even wanna bother switching out the clusters?
  19. i just used those cleaning whipes, i believe they are prestone brand or soemthign, i just had it in garage and whiped everythign off
  20. well there is no smoke or anything of that nature, so i guess ill leave it alone. so smoke will b a sign that its going/gone bad? just how much smoke does show up?
  21. while i was cleaning the engine bay (waiting for zaino to dry) i noticed some oil buildup. what and how much would it cost to solve this before more things go bad? and any links to DIY if there is one of any relevance to this. a;sp how can i check if its just the hose or if its the unit itself? heres a pic of what im talking about, and one of engine bay after cleaning all cleaned up, mucho better
  22. i did all 4 calipers in about 2 hrs, i think i did 2-3 coats per caliper. so its not like you will be wasting your whole day to do it.
  23. yea, get them at xenonmods. i used the brush on application one, no clear coat, i had it on couple of cars and so far no chipping or flaking off, and also if you were to get some chips its easy to touch it up. heres a pic b4 and after (calipers painted, decals, centercaps handpainted, and new lugnuts)
  24. stick with red, cant go wrong with it
