  1. I've been driving with my RoW sport suspension for about 6 months (car garaged during Feb, Mar etc during snow time) and wanted to follow up. I must say the suspension has settled nicely and there is a little less than 1.5 inches of space between the rear wheels and fender. The fronts are a tad over 1.5 inches. The car is very tight, a little firm, but I would not go back to the stock suspension. Let me clarify "firm". It does not jump or bounce around like those lowered Hondas. You feel the bump a bit more than stock, but it does not upset the direction of the car. It definitely rides
  2. Been running Mobil1 0-40 in Massachusetts no problems. Excellent cold start. 99 Boxster
  3. I have the Falken 452 all around on my 99 Boxster (18 inch rims). The tires are lasting REALLY long, and are also dead quiet. Unfortunately, their grip is pretty weak when the temp starts to drop below 70F and they also have a narrower tread pattern than my other tire brands. Will not buy again since I sometimes drive the car on nice cold days during the New England winters. Pretty cheap, quiet and long wearing for warm weather driving. Had Yokohamas, I believe the AVS model (V-tread pattern), and these had awesome grip. They also had a wider tread width (same size tire) than the other
  4. Bought the parts from Suncoast Porsche for $1088 plus UPS. They had it in stock and I received it in a few days (Florida to Mass). By the way, installed the OBX strut tie bars. Easy install with 13mm socket. Very nice quality bar, excellent packaging. Kind of surprised me for the low price. Didn't notice a difference at lower speeds, but at higher speeds, cornering (S turns), the car seems like it is carved out of a solid block of titanium! Maybe it will snap in half in a month, but for now works great.
  5. I just finished the install of the ROW M030 sport suspension kit (springs, struts, swaybars) on my 99 Boxster with 18" rims, 5 speed. The install is not difficult, it just takes time and some mechanical apptitude. I found the front was easier than the rear. I first changed out the rear passenger unit where my original strut had lost its fluid. Took a little over 3 hours to figure it out. The other rear took about 2 hours (learning curve). The first side also included the new larger swaybar ( tad larger) install. Last weekend, I changed out the 2 fronts and swaybar (I think the swaybar i
  6. My 99 boxster has yellow coolant and is down a bit. Can I top it off with the pink VW/Audi coolant cut with distilled water? Or do I have to buy the new Porsche pink coolant. Thought the VW/Audi and Porsche coolants might be similar in composition. Thanks! Steve
  7. Maurice, So the problem is dissimilar metals, like how thermocouple wires work? I am assuming that the wire crimps must be made of the same material as the actual wires on both sides of the connection? I wonder if they are or it is better to just buy the pre-wired Bosch OEM unit. Thanks Again! Steve
  8. Why do you have to use crimp wire connectors when reusing the old O2 sensor plug? What does the soldering process damage or alter? Thanks! Steve
