    Nothing else to mention except in 89 i had a lowered suzuki sidkick :)
  1. Shell or Chevron myself, but in a pinch I use a cheap place to fill up. But normally not more than once a month.
  2. Headlights look really cool!!! I am getting ready to do the same on my 01 Triple Black Boxster!

  3. After you get done we need to have a meeting of the Forced Induction Boxster Club. Are you running 1 turbo or 2, I only saw one in the picture?
  4. I am late to this party aren't I!!! Meth injection too!!!!!! I need to figure something out to get a little more power. HMM..I need to get 500hp out of my 2.5!!!! Glad to see you are going ahead with this build. keep us posted and take plenty of before and after pictures. We are all dieing to see it. Gary
  5. US Lawyers. Basically the lights have probably not met Department of Transportation testing. There are a large number of parts that are sold as "off road use only" that are used on a daily basis.
  6. If you live on the south side of BR Metarie is only 45 miles...I would keep the box...I have 150k miles on mine.
  7. I only take my Boxster to 3 shops in Baton Rouge/Lafayette The best Porsche mechanic I have ever seen works buy appointment only in Lafayette. He does all of my custom work. If it is small maintness type stuff he is not your guy. If the Boxster is your daily driver forget I mentioned him. He is amazing, his work has been on magazine covers, he is very affordable. I called him the other day to do some exhaust work on my car, he can see me in March. If you need work like this PM me. for maintenance or work you need on a time frame Loupe Automotive is the guy to see ask for Paul Loupe. He is the owner and chief mechanic. He does all of my maintenance he is very quick and can get you in within a day or so. He has installed coil overs for me oil changes for the past 150k miles plus aos repairs and other items a 150k miles Boxster needs. Its a 2 man shop and he comes highly recommended from most Porsche owners in Baton Rouge. The Louisiana group has grown from a few to a gaggle, we need to get our cars out and let them breath a little.
  8. Well if you say so it's because you know what you're talking about. I'll have to find someone to make a custome blank plate to install my gauges after. Many thanks for your time. P.D. :cheers: I am in search for a blank plate for the same reason you where (gauges) what solution did you come up with? Does anyone know where I can get an OEM looking blank plate?? Thanks
  9. I am completely opposite of everyone. I intentionally put a yellow bulb in my city lights. The yellow tint does not bother me and I prefer the yellow lights when I am parked. To me it is a nod to the GT2 race cars. http://www.pcars.us/albums/11308_porsche_cars.jpg
  10. Finding the spring rate info has been very hard. From what I can see no one knows or can release what oem rates are and the aftermarket spring rates are hard to come by. From what I can figure out, the rate is how much force it takes to compress the springs 1 inch. Cross uses 393/450 PSS9 260/345 H and R 220/230 If anyone has additions to this list please post them. What does the spring rate mean exactly? K Sports are 500lbs. vs the 300 on other coilovers.....what does this translate to performance and ride wise?
  11. Oh yes they are stiff. I have found out that the rears are almost 500 lbs. Whereas the H and Rs and PSS9 are closer to the 300 range. If you are installing the KSPORTS I would recommend installing the helper spring I understand that makes them better. Update us with what you think of them and after I figure out my spring rates or if I go with the helper spring I will update everyone here also. Please keep us updated. K Sport has gotten reviews all over the board,some good some bad. Their coilovers are really stiff from what I hear. A member on 986forum is trying to get springs that have a different spring rate because of how stiff they are.
  12. Please dont sound stupid ;) GO visit your Boxster and click your headlights once to the right. Now go look at the headlights. Those are your "city lights" or as we call them here "parking lights" in some countries they drive in the well lit cities with these lights on and not their full beam headlights. In the US we park with them on. While your outside playing with your head lights turn them off again and then turn the dial to the left one click lights up the right side "parking lights" for the rest of the world and the second click to the left lights up your drivers side "parking lights" these are used for the times you need to park on a street at night. You would turn on the light on the traffic side of the car. So in otherwords the yellowish light you see is another bulb in your housing. It can be changed out to a xenon matching bulb. I think its number is 5w5 but please check on that. Its a very easy swap. It changes just like the rest of the bulbs in the housing. Good luck and please ask any further questions.
