  1. I have a 2002 Boxster with an aging o2 sensor that periodically causes the check engine light to come on. I've used my Durametric tool to reset the error code several times. I will eventually get around to replacing the post-cat o2 sensor, but I'm curious as to how the ECU adapts to the signal. Is there any effect on performance?
  2. Great looking, but they are priced almost twice competing skirts...
  3. Has anyone on this board had any experience with the Schnell performance muffler and/or headers for the Boxster? I'm interested in your thoughts on the equipment quality, muffler sound and any other performance issues. I'm looking for a good value. Thanks for your help.
  4. That's a very good list. I'll skip ahead to the "take a shower" part.
  5. A while back I had a check engine light come on. The OBD showed an aging o2 sensor. I reset the computer to suppress the check engine light for the o2 reading. Question - does the ECU adjust the fuel mix / etc.. based on the aging o2 sensor reading? The car has seemed a bit sluggish lately.
  6. What sizes do you have on your vehicle (in the picture)? I'm thinking 18 or 23 on the back with my stock rims.
  7. I'm planning to add wheel spacers to my front and back wheels. Has anyone had used either the H&R Trak+ wheel spacers or the Weltmeister Turbo Star spacers? Any preferences?
  8. Just installed jumpers between fuse 6 and 9. The headlights come with the key. I works fine - If I get tired of it, I'll change it back. Done.
  9. Is there any downside to the common Boxster hack that turns on the headlights when you turn on the car? The hack uses simple fuse box jumpers
  10. I'm considering adding wheel spacers to give the car a little more aggressive appearance. I have a two questions that I need some help with. If I keep my current 17" stock wheels, could adding spacers cause the tires to rub, or would it have no effect? For those of you with 17" stock wheels, what size spacers have you added front and rear? If I go up a size to 18" wheels, is there any downside to adding spacers that are larger than required? For those of you that have added 911 style 18" wheels, what size spacers did you add? Did you add a larger spacer than required? Thanks in advance for your responses.
  11. With about 40% destined for US markets, that translates into about 8,000 per year or 80,000 over the last ten years.
  12. Check postion 11 in the code S = Stuttgart, Germany U = Uusikaupunki, Finland
  13. I bought a used hardtop last weekend. I bought the spin locks and bolts from Suncoast the day afterward and the parts were delivered yesterday. I spent about an hour installing the spinlocks and used the instructions from this site. The top went on smooth and tight with no apparent gaps. It looks like a totally different car.
