vipola replied to vipola's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)You ROCK! This is exactly what I was looking for for the past month.. Thanks a lot! :)
vipola posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I know this question have been asked before on the forum, but I can't find a answer to it.. Anyone have some INSTRUCTION or UserManual for the DSP Controller part of the M680 (Or even just General Guideline from someone who understood it) And Advanced Hidden Features in the CDR-220 (like holding the Programming Button for 8 seconds, what are all thoses fields, etc.. Thanks
Your project abborded, but I think everything happens for a reason, and It may be just a good thing, if you plan your stuff you could probably buy a good shape one within the next few years.. cheer up a bit.. :) keep in mind that things can go wrong very fast with a damaged car (specially high-end like porsche).. a P-car handle very well, but NOT IF it's not perfectly straight and alligned.. Maybe your simple math make you think it's a deal.. but if you have any little problem at the end of your project it can grow easily by multiple 100$ and 1000$ at the time.. that damaged car is a waste of time and probably of money.. It's a Gamble.. a dealer can take a gamble, they won't get bancrupt it it cost 3-4K$ more than they tought.. theyw ill just know better next time.. how about you?? You really don't want to end up with a 9K$ Trashed P-Car Brick in your drive way that you can't drive because there is more damage to it that you could afford repairing.. :P I would'nt buy a car like that to fix it.. to much thing out of your control can go wrong.. even if you really BELIVE into your project and want it to work.. Save up over the winter.. and the next year, take that 6K$ + 2K$ + shipping + Paint + inspections + maybe suspension + alignement + 22L of Coolant + little fee for this + little fee for that + other little fee.. + all the time you'll spend on that.. If you got that much free time get yourself a part-time job to buy your dream car.. Take all that and buy a car in good condiition next fall.. a car that you will buy and be able to enjoy from day one.. for almost the same price but way less trouble.. for the price boxster goes these days, specially in the U.S. Wait a bit, and buy a better car for your money :) Keep in mind that the 'acquisition' of a P-Car is just the starting point of the $.. Gas.. Tires.. brakes.. Maintenance.. Insurance!.. Repairs on a 10 year old car that you don't know the story.. you need to have a little extra money in case something happend.. If you don't have the money right now to enjoy it there is no point of putting yourself in that situationa P-Car is supposed to be MINT.. Nice and in Good shape.. no point of riding in a miss-mached boxster that hold with tie-raps and duck tape.. This been said.. Never give up your dreams, and I wish you a P-Car for Xmas next year :) good luck :) (Just my opinion)
vipola replied to Last Car's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)For your information, or for any future reference, the 6 pin (2x3) connector behind the DSP Conroller, is part of the main harness of the car and it goes to the AMP (M680 DSP, that amp for your info WON'T WORK IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE DSP CONTROLLER PLUGGED IN), you can't buy it separatly. If you'r rewiring it and need a connector, you can use the computer motherboard connector like theses one.. you can take two 3-pin connector side by side to give you the 2x3 pin layout.. It fit perfectly behind the DSP, but I suggest you tu put some glue or something to avoid it of getting loose.. You can esaily find them for free at any Geek Friend's home or computer part recygling shop .. :) Don't hesitate if you have other questions.. :)

For those who don't want to waste 150$ on a simple cable upgrade, you can always switch your Enthusiast old cable for a Professional new cable, they will charge you the difference between the Enthusiast and the Professional version, so you don't really loose money :)
Never heard of 'plastic dip' I wonder if it would 'braek off' or if its more like rubber..
Neat trick!! :) thx for the info
exactly what I was going to say, sim card are supposed to be portable (as long as the phone is not company specific lock), so just give whatever else cellphone s/n you have and try the sim card in your car :) I'm sure they don't need that anyway and they just ask that to fill up their computer :P good luck ! :)
my 987S06 also don't have it under the front hood.. and it never been replaced..
You mean only the outside to not scratch the weel or the inside also ?!?
There is a list of option code under the front hood, just look up that list online yourself :) I think the dealer can also help you out with this..
vipola replied to vipola's topic in 987-1 Boxster/Cayman S Suspension, Brakes, and WheelsEhhh.. I'm not sure about that one, the goal here is to compensate the size of the wheel with the tire profile ratio to get the same outside diameter size. It should not impact acceleration/topspeed. In that case it would effect ground clearance and probably cause suspension issues..
vipola replied to vipola's topic in 987-1 Boxster/Cayman S Suspension, Brakes, and WheelsHonestly, because I tought 18" was the smallest to fit on a 987S. I knew every secret of my 986, but I'm still very new with the 987 . But also because I had with the car a set of 18" track tire, and I wanted to keep the same handling/feeling as the stock one. I'm brigning a situation, but very opened to any suggestion because I know alot a peoples passed trough this exactly same question before me :) Is there advantage/desadvantage going to 17" wheel for the track ? Stock wheels on 987S are 8x18 and 9x18. what width are those 997 17" ones? I guess I don't want to go narrower, and I guess I can't really go larger.
Hi, I Just Bought a 2006 Boxster S, Nice upgrade from my 99 Boxster. I am now looking for a 2nd set of wheel to put track tire on, I was looking for some used cosmetic damaged 18 inch oem wheel, but they are pretty hard to find. I really don't care about the look, I just want them to be straight and work just like oem ones. I didn't really considered third party wheels, is there any aftermarket brand that worth it? or should I really stick to OEM wheel? By the way, I am not interested in spending more money to get fancy liteweight wheel (in case thats your advice). Thanks! :)
