  1. 2000 Yes, lots of foam. I'm thinking of collecting it all and making a pillow out of it. Trying to do my part to recycle. lol
  2. I've seen a lot of complaining about driveabily though. What does the manual car do it in?
  3. If you don't care about wet weather or life of the tire, Kumho XS is the best non R comp tire right now.
  4. Falken ze 912 in 255/40/17 rear and 225/45/17 front. They are inexpensive, very grippy and have good longevity.
  5. Though I did the exact opposite, I would get the S2000. It's a better track car. I have a Boxster because I love the sounds it makes and the way it looks. I have also always wanted a Red Porsche, but the S2000 is a better car for what you want to do. After 1 autocross and a track day in the Boxster, I bought another Subaru STI to use on the track and keep the Boxster for it's beautiful sounds.
  6. radar jammers are illegal, but as far as I remember they can't make light illegal. anyway, see my post earlier, free easy way to give you a little time to slow down when your laser detector goes off. with all the drl's on cars now you really won't even stand out.
  7. I plan on doing mine in that fashion as funds allow. I plan on ending up with a 2.9 high compression engine with 260-270hp, carbon fiber hood, trunk and fenders, light weight battery, all sound deadening removed but I'm leaving the carpet, GT3 console delete, GT3 seats, coilovers, headers, 2nd cat delete and undecided on exhaust. It's Guards Red so I plan on GT3 like "Boxster" down the sides and replica multi spokes. The only extra weight will be the rear cargo bin and speaker, but those can easily be removed.
  8. I'm looking to get my seats redone soon and would love to make them heated. I live in a pretty warm area, but it gets nippy sometimes with the top down in spring and fall.
  9. vf engineering has a new intercooled SC for the C4S that puts out 456hp. www.vf-engineering.com
  10. Just driving with your high beams and fogs on will give you enough time to slow down if your laser detector goes off. Driving with high beams and fogs on can also make you stick out. Best way to not get a ticket is not to speed. Next best is don't exceed 9mph over, next best is pick a rabbit (the fastest car on the road) and follow him about 1/4 -1/2 mile back.
  11. When I lived in NC I was able to keep my FL drivers license. As long as I paid the ticket, they ddin't show up on my driving record. If the lawer doesn't work out, ask Congress for a bail out.
  12. Long story short -- the problem turned out to be a sheared water pump shaft which allowed the engine to overheat causing the freeze plug in one of the cylinder heads to blow -- which caused the coolant to mix with the oil. So I didn't require the new liners. I did get the LnEngineering IMS upgrade. Replacing just about everything else that isn't nailed down, from bearings, to all timing chains, hoses, belts, AOS, seals, rings, clutch, brake pads, and battery. Everything stock except for brake pads. Will be putting it all back together starting next week. Mike What did it
  13. I am looking forward to doing my center console in red and the rest in silver. Looking forward to the full write up.
  14. The 550 is small. I don't think you could fit more than 1 clown in it or maybe a clown and a shriner.
  15. You will NEVER get a motor rebuild with parts for 4K it will be more like 7-8K, the parts are not mass produced like a SB Chevy you can order from Jegs. I personal y would rather have a rebuilt then a new motor since when you rebuid it you improve all the weak points. That's about what you would pay to have a Subaru WRX engine rebuilt stock. It looks like Raby is coming out with a program to help owners do the rebuilds themselves, so that might be an option for you. Would certainly address the labor cost issue.
  16. Yep and Mobil 1 keeps feeding them money getting the "recommendation" too.. It's OK, we are certainly on top of solving the problems they created... I couldn't use Mobil in my STi, for some reason it burned through it like a hooker on a meth binge. Don't ask :offtopic: I have been using it in the Boxster because of Porsches recommendation, but have not been comfortable with it after seeing many oil analysis. Jake, what would you recommend? My car is well past warranty and there would be no hope of getting any help if it blew due to me being the second owner and the previous owners
  17. ****, got my hopes up. Mine has 62,000 miles and I'll just hoping to get to 100,000 before I do a swap. I just don't have the clams to do it now.
  18. Butt dynos are very tricky to calibrate properly. Find a local dyno day before you do any upgrades and dyno the car after upgrades. Try to match conditions as close as possible and you will probably find that those telling you to expect 10hp are correct. If you want a better sound, by all means get an exhaust, but I wouldn't expect a lot of extra hp.
  19. Wow, 162,000 miles. That's the most I've seen for a Boxster. Are you on the original engine?
  20. It's just the hooker that you stuffed in the trunk. If you let her out or feed her the thumping will stop. If you don't do anything she'll eventually stop thumping too.
