  1. Boost: Found the link: http://bernardembden.com/xjs/pcvfilter/index.htm You are not going to believe what this guy cooked up! Regards, Maurice. Wow Maurice GREAT FIND! I was trying to find alternatives because of the larger diameter of the bellow pipe and I guess this is the answer. Great inspiration! Hopefully this will be a more permanent solution to this AOS issue.
  2. Here's a general idea off a Subaru. The only issue is that this car has 4 hoses. 2 get taken care off, the other 2 get plugged off. Let's see...
  3. And discovered just how cool it must be for Porsche to charge people $90+ dollars for a part thats 99% plastic and 1 metal spring. I broke apart the case on the little bastard because it made me think I've blown the turbo in my Boxster and as it turns out it was just the AOS. When breaking this thing open, you'll notice the major design flaw. The diaphragm part thats connected to the intake manifold has a very thin layer of plastic (about as thin as a regular condom) that separates the spring. Thin enough to where one can plainly see that with the hot oil and gases that passes through thi
  4. Hi Guys I'm trying to T off the oil pressure sensor / sender to feed the inlet of the turbo. Does anyone know what kind the thread / pitch of the oil pressure sender? I haven't removed it yet, but would like to order the Metric to NPT adapter if anyone knows what it is. Thanks in advanced!
  5. Thanks for the info! I actually got the info directly from the guy who started spreading this mod on 6speedonline and rennlist... Here it goes from my post at 6speedonline. http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=120586 If we break down the relay slots 30 = 12V hot constant 87 = takes slot 30 and sends it to the device 86 = Switched power which in this case will get triggered due to coolant temperature 85 = Is the ground for 86 So the original mod creator told me to put a wire into slot 85 for both relays #20 and #22 connect that to one side of the switch. Next side
  6. It's another one of those "hey it cost 5 dollars so why not do it" sort of things. Partly because of the turbo project yes, but also partly just for peace of mind. I was planning on doing the center radiator as well for the project since Evo does it for their supercharger kit for the 996's but can't right now due to budget. The good thing about turbo's is that their load induced, so as long as I don't give it the good stuff, she'll remain nice and docile. BTW I've been checking my coolant temps with the data logger and it's suffice to say that the factory gauge is a little bit more then
  7. When dealing with electronics I usually pass it on to someone else that knows what their doing. But this time I want to learn because this is so simple I'm pulling my hair out. Has anyone ever done the fan mod that turns on the radiator fans with a switch? I made a small circuit, uses a simple toggle switch, I'm using the screw that holds the fuse block on the drivers side as a ground. I tapped into relays 20 and 22 on the #86 prong. When I did this I blew the fuses for those 2 circuits. What am I doing wrong?? any help would be appreciated! Joe
  8. FWIW, the original 986 eGas MAF (with a 986 part number) is also used on the 996 TT. When used with the later style MAF program (i.e. 2001), the original runs the engine richer. Good luck with your project (saw on 6Speed as well). (mee a.k.a. arenared) Shweet I can't wait install the system, put in 100 octane, and see what the wideband sensors says. When it's all said and done, I don't think our cars at this level have are starving for fuel, it's merely detonation thats hurting the FI. For some reason I'm having trouble replying on 6speed as it seem to locked me out of their system.
  9. Ryan: Thanks! The shop was just a little hole in the wall shop in South El Monte, CA called Blue Tone Mufflers. Although if you go to it, it's a little hole in the wall father and son team, but they've had done a lot of turbo exhaust setups from honda's to M3's, although I was their first porsche =D They didn't have a mandrel bender so he took his time to create those nice bends for me. He's VERY cheap and does a great job for the price. Falco: You know I would do the 3.6 conversion in a heart beat if I had $$ means of doing so. The turbo kit is just my little band aid till I
  10. Yes Gary's car is a very good example... in fact it is the only example I know of a streetable FI Boxster that has logged so many miles. And he is still tweaking it. There are a few others from Ruf and Gemballa that have entire race/tuning teams to insure everything is running right. If his car was stolen and he was starting over, would he do another 2.5 FI and repeat his steps, or just drop in a 996 motor that is reliable, powerful, and smog legal... Your absolutely correct about all that. Unfortunately the few of us who are modifying the cars this way got to pay the hard and usually
  11. Although not a supercharged car, Gary in BR has an example of doing something right with his car. His car alone has 150,000 miles and has been both supercharged and then turbocharged. It looks like he might have had some issues initially with the supercharger but I haven't found any complaints that he's posted on the forums about the twin turbo set up. I'm pretty sure with 150,000 miles, his car would be a good example of a car thats used daily and see's boost on a regular basis. Joe
  12. Sounds like an awesome idea! My boxster can use a nice road trip to break in all these parts. Let me know if you when you want to set it up as we can just piggyback onto the supra nationals at TX2k8 in Texas. Big time supra meet but lots of vipers and porsches always show up. Multi-day event with drag racing and a nice road course as well. It's a single turbo, just one of those cheap ebay fakes of a garrett. It has a t3 flange so when everything is mounted and sorted correctly, a real garrett will take it's place in the future. I'll take another photo with it next to a pepsi can so you c
  13. Just wanted to update those are were interested. So I'm almost there in parts. Heres the turbo (made in china wannabe t4/t3 hybrid), ebay tial wannabe 38mm wastegate, 24x7x3 intercooler 2.5" intercooler Piping Oil line kit and ebay GReddy Type S wannabe BOV ELM 327 datalogger and LC1 Wideband on the way. Oh if pk2 (peter) or Gary is reading this, I'm also going to be doing meth injection too =D
  14. Unfortunately with most OBD II generic readers like the one I'm going to use, there will usually be no data acquisition for knock count. What I will be using is an audible meter though when I begin to tune the car. As long as theres no audible knock nor funny timing maps going on, it should be good to go. With us in California having 91 though, the tune will be a lot more conservative then others in the east coast.
