  1. Anyone know for sure if an '04 Boxster S exhaust would fit a '00 non-S?
  2. Where can I get a replacement catalytic converter (no, not my wife's cat... I wish... friggin' psycho beast...) for my 2000 Boxster? The up stream cat on the driver side is getting ready to bite it. I am open to other solutions, however, I am in California and I've got to pass smog every year.
  3. Thanks to those who weighed in here. It turned out to be a rattling catalytic converter. Granted it doesn't sound like any cat rattle I have ever heard before, however that's what it is. Does anyone know if I can replace the headers all together (removing the first set of cats) and get the O2 sensor to behave?
  4. I had a similar problem on a BMW & it turned out to be a cracked weld between one of the pipes & the flange of the exhaust manifold Hmmm.... that is possible. I'll look for cracks/leaks in the exhaust. That could possibly make a noise like this as well. I think. Either way, thanks for the idea.
  5. Thanks Loren. I'll definitely check into the O2 Sensor issue further. Unfortunately, as I suspected, it's highly unlikely that has anything to do with what I am hearing. ARGH!
  6. I spent quite a bit of time listening today with the engine bay open. This noise does, in fact, tie to engine speed. It does, however, either disappear or become drowned out by other engine noise as the revs get up 1300 rpm. If I rev the engine above that and then slowly bring it back down I can hear it in sync with the engine. However, if I rev the engine and then let off the throttle, letting the revs drop quickly, it does not show back up until the engine has idled for a split second. Then it starts back slowly (somewhat out of sync with the engine) and quickly speeds up to engine speed. It
  7. There is an occasional ticking noise that I can distinctly hear right behind my head while at idle. It's not connected to engine speed and will speed up and slow down at it's own will. Then will disappear completely. It sound like it is in the top of the engine compartment right behind the driver side seat.
  8. Just bought a 2000 Boxster and didn't come with the owner's manual, so hence... no radio code. Can I get a preemptive strike on the radio code? Becker Type 4362 Serial #: X5017969
