  1. A/C fuse or relay could be the problem. Do the radiator fans come on? Should be always on if A/C is operating. Doesn't sound like an A/C dash control issue, but I wonder about that too. Good luck.
  2. Doesn't C4S share turbo parts, but without center radiator? If so, C4 won't fit with C4S mounts.
  3. Greetings to 981 Forum members. (This posting is revised to correct the year and model of my friends Boxster GTS.)(and again to note car is a 981.) I have a friend who went to Germany and came home with a 2015 Boxster GTS. He has asked me about new tires and I could only tell him about my adventures with my 911SC and 996 C4S. What is the current thought re putting new tires on the Boxster? Anyone? Anyone? Does anyone have a positive, or for that matter a negative opinion, on replacement tires. My friend intends to put on 4 tires and I've advised him not to mix and match manufacturers. I run Michelin PS2's, N3, on my C4S and like them way better than any others. Cheers to all...

  5. Your altruism is duly noted. Both advisements above are certainly reasonable and prudent. You need to get the fault codes printed out right away. Whatever you do, this seems to be crucial. Good luck. Hope and trust your husband is ok.
  6. have you already purchased this engine as a replacement? if not, you might want to think twice about it. good comment above. Looks like something might have torn loose in there. Maybe lots of red hot running at top end on a track somewhere. the word that comes to me to describe what your pictures show is "toast." good luck.
  7. check the cats. when going out there could be a rattle noticed at startup from one or both.
  8. Very good and easy suggestion by DB. I wonder what Hugo has decided to do?
  9. 3 quick and modest points: 1. try Red Line 10-40. 2. this thread seems to argue against installing the DOF to the IMS. I'll be facing this issue in approx 25k miles when I plan on a new LNE bearing. 3. Carefully listen to the cats. I had a clicking sound similar to what you describe that was driving me crazy, and my inde heard it in the left cat. Replaced. Solved. Good luck...
  10. Does your car have the smokers package, meaning do you have a cigarette lighter? If so, check the lighter plug. It may be that the lighter is engaged, not working, but still draining the battery. Just a thought...probably not correct but worth a check. I use my lighter plug to run a GPS, or to backfeed a trickle charger to the battery when away and not driving for more than a week. Good luck. Post back your findings, please.
  11. File this one under secret Porsche tricks. Good luck. and enjoy this forum. Endless info...
  12. Just saw this thread. good luck. You have more courage than I do. Hope all continues to go well.
  13. I would have to think e-gas as you have seemed to have done everything else. Try running a durametric check for codes, and you could also clear the airbag light. good luck. I'm guessing the real pros on the forum will wade in on this for you.
  14. Swap your lights out for the OEM Litronic. Be sure to get the lights for the right year as I think the lens design changed in 2002 or 2003. This should likely be a plug and play exchange. Check fuse sizes too. I'd bet wiring and install would be a snap.
  15. Johan, good point. I was thinking about just changing out the blades, not the assembly. Cheers,
  16. Napa Auto parts had some good wiper blade replacements. No need for OEM on some stuff. Major stuff always. My story: I have a trickle charger. It's branded Porsche, made by C-Tek. Cost about twice as much as the regular non-branded C-Tek. I just wanted to see "Porsche" on something I plugged into the car. Wiper blades, no worry.
  17. Yes, I think it would require an ECU or ECM change. I would also be careful to check the impact on the remaining drivetrain, clutch, trans, brakes, etc., based on the higher torque from the 3.4 to a 3.6. Maybe not, but certainly worth checking. I learned about this with an older air cooled 3.0 engine when I thought about bolting on 3.2 pistons. Of course that was an air cooled engine and maybe the 3.4 to 3.6 changeover would be less impacting. And I agree that many others might have considered doing what you are thinking about. It will be interesting to follow this thread. Good luck.
  18. Thanks, Ahsai. Good catch. Makes good sense. And makes me wonder if those suspect VW cars had a similar emission testing connection.
  19. I wonder if its a connection to some sort of computer chip reprogramming device that doesn't work through the OBC port under the dash like a Durametric would. Or, it could be the auto-deploy parachute braking activation for hard braking from over 175mph? Interesting looking connection. I think there likely will be some informed replies. Cheers,
  20. wow, that is one good looking major league job well done. Fascinating to see how it all fits. Clearly takes years of engine work and great skill. cool.
  21. "Back in the day," I had a '62 Chevy with a hot 283, and then a '68 Camaro with a great 327. I remember seeing a thread from a member of the forum in Santa Rosa, CA, about installing a short-block chevy in an older 911. Looked interesting, and .... with a short block Chevy I just might be able to change my own spark plugs again. I remember when the insurance guy came out to inspect my old 911SC to be sure it actually had a Porsche engine in it. Always wondered why.. Now I know. This is a great read. Question: why not just get a Z06 Corvette in the first place? Cheaper, faster, etc. Maybe cause it's still a Chevy? Cheers to all...
  22. And I thought that was the Self-Activating Photon Torpedo Guidance and Tractor-Beam Deflector Inflator Mechanism Shield. The one in the photo looks pretty good to me. Wow on the price tag. Good thought.
  23. consider Red Line 10-40. this is fun reading for me, brings back memories of my old 911SC, sitting in traffic, watching the temp gauges climb. The good old days....
