  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.
  15. What kind of Turbo are you getting for $350? You'll also need to also figure for a custom downpipe and exhaust manifold. What type of intake manifold you would want to run (stock, custom). I'm assuming stock compression on the engine. VW/Audi Tuners have tonnes of turbo setups based on upgrading the Fuel Injectors and Custom Tuning using the stock or an upgraded MAF. These are closed loop setups, so instead of using an annoying blow-off valve, you would use a Diverter Valve (DV). These systems also work with the stock FPR, and boost is regulated by the wastegate (type of spring you choos
  16. Well just a quick est. so far... Turbo, wastegate, oil feed and return lines = $350 shipped Intercooler, bov, piping = $250 shipped Datalogger = $50 shipped Wideband o2 = $200 shipped Oil pump = $75 shipped Oil tank or cooler = $50 shipped 5 Bar Fuel pressure regulator = $75 shipped Misc. stuff ? Probably another $300 to be safe So $1350 projected for parts budget. Since I'm going to be doing the labor myself, hopefully I can budget a full day to get the turbo itself on. The wideband and the pressure regulator will probably have to take another day. BTW, if your wondering wh
  17. Thank god for insurance ;) The turbo components are actually cheap when you start comparing what a lot of tuners charge for the components.
  18. Or you could try changing it yourself. It's pretty straight forward and you'll learn to turn a wrench a little bit. Also, in the future you can try the DEKA ETX14 battery which is a great mod for some quick weight savings since the thing weighs 14lbs vs. the 40+lb stock battery.
  19. Well it's that time of the year again when I get the bug for more power. I've had my 01 Boxster now for a little while and though this car has been great in almost every way, it would be perfect if it just had power to it. There's just something wrong knowing that my porsche has less horsepower then a v6 camry or v6 accord. While doing some homework, I've realized a few things about these cars. For one, it seems like every fuel component on the boxster and carrera (n/a) of the same years are exactly the same. One could interpret this to mean that the stock fuel system is more then up to the
  20. Cool thanks for the clarification. I guess I cant cheap out on this one.
  21. Loren does the AOS actually pump any oil back into the engine itself seperately, or does it use engine vacuum to suck out the gases then just releases excess oil/gases back into the intake tract?
  22. Thanks for the heads up CJ. Hopefully being vented into the atmosphere would be enough for the heat.
  23. Something popped in my mind when I started to notice some smoke every morning, I'm hoping its merely due to the engine design but... If it is the AOS, can this simply be re-routed and put in a catch can? I figure I can plug the part of the intake manifold as this was what I used to do when I was modifying imports. I know many cars pull this off without tripping the CEL, but those cars were all non e-gas, so has anyone here tried this before? TIA
  24. Once you put the throttlebody back together, grab some carb cleaner and start spraying around the intake tract and intake manifold. There are times where you'll get a intake manifold leak thats minute enough not to flip the CEL but enough to give you the problems that your seeing. Get the car to normal operating temp. Then go to your garage with the door open and have someone watch your idle. Start spraying carb cleaner past the MAF all the way down to the intake manifold, esp around those connections. If your buddy see's a sudden jump in rpm you might want to investigate. If you can ge
