  1. MY 00 Boxster 2.7, manual location : CA Recently I tried to remove the oil pump housing, to fix a small oil leak....will in doing so, I broke off the rear facing flange that is attached to engine case. The flange broke off in the engine case just below the most peripheral facing O-ring. This has unfortunately happened to me twice, in two different motors. Does anybody have an idea how to remove this flange with the least amt of damage to the engine case? I've attached a few photos of the previous broken off flange that was easily removed by drilling a hole into flange, and removing with ma
  2. has any one re-powered a 2.7 Boxster with a 3.2? I checked out nutrod, looks like great post, but it looks like a simple plug -n-play fit for the same motor. I guesss the big question, is this: can I re-power with a 3.2l Boxster motor, that is coming out of same year Boxster that is set up for auto/triptronic trans? I would love to re-power to the bigger 3.2l motor, but I'm concerned about the possible modifications that I would have to make. It does not sound like a "plug-n-play," even though it's the same model year. Anyone out there done this repower, and if so, what modifications will
  3. Can somoeond direct to a DIY article for engine removal. I searcched under DIY forum, but I was unable to find an article Try nutrod.com
  4. I have a MY 00 Boxster(2.7) with blown engine secondary to timing chain/tensioner failure (so says the Porsche mechanic). I found a 3.2l from a Boxster S, same model year, however the wrecked boxster it's coming from has the auto trans. Any thoughts with this engine swap to my Boxster that has a 5 speed manual transmission? Any significant changes I will have to make for this engine swap? Any changes I would have to make to my clutch to take on this bigger motor? Can somoeond direct to a DIY article for engine removal. I searcched under DIY forum, but I was unable to find an article Th
  5. MY2000Boxster, Thanks for the AOS info, I could not figure out where my oil consumption was occuring, pulled off my oil cap with car running-large amt of suctioning occured, and engine nearly died, just sputtered. Engine idle rerturned to normal after screwing cap back on. Definetly looks as if I found my source! I will definetly begin preperation to replace AOS. Thanks for the great post Jason
  6. My MY00 Boxster has the same symptoms-intermittant "flashing" of oil warning light. And yes, I was getting erratic readings on my oil pressure gauge. I would check the oil dip stick, and it always appeared to be at the proper level. I was not sure if this was an AOS issue, so hopefully it is just the oil sensor, as previously mentioned Thanks
  7. It's a porsche!...good god, spend the three hundred bucks, and have a new wind screen. Ghetto any other way
  8. Thanks for the great article. On my MY00 Boxster it requires the removal of three bolts for each visor. T30, and T20. there is a little tab that flips open, to reveal the concealed bolt. No electrical wires to disconnect. see attached photos. Thanks again for the great article. NVTMED
  9. Thanks for the great DIY project..I hate those **** stickers, and was planning on covering them until I read you post. My visors on my MY00 Boxster required the following to remove: 2 bolts, and 1 screw Bolts were removed withT30H, screw removed with T20H...very simply done after "fliping" plastic tab to revel concealed bolt; side closest to rearview mirror. See attached photo. Thanks again for the steps on this project. NVYMED
  10. helps...does not show throttle body connection. Regardless, I plugged er in as you have indicated, and wah-lah!! CEL, now off!...so hopefully the vacuum hose drama is over. Kbrandsma, thank sfor you time and effort in helping me this problem...Jason
  11. Now I think I'm confused....previous thread indicated(from my understanding) that the check valve plugged directly into rubber sleeve on the throttle body. Your pic shows vacuum hose plugged into sleeve. If one end of check valve plugs into Y connector, where does the other end of check valve plug into? There appears to be a cannister of some sort, that has another Y connector at its base..does the check valve plug in there? Thanks for your help...any website have a schematic of the vacuum hose setup?...thanks for all your help. NVYmed
  12. NVYMED: Glad you were able to get it working properly. From what you have gone through, you'll never get stranded with the top not operating again. Fabian: Good job perservering. There's nothing like persistence to get the job done. Regards, Maurice. THANK YOU MAURICE...GREAT ADVICE NVYMED
  13. I think that cleared things up...black side of check valve plugs directly into sleeve on throttle body. Other end of check valve plugs into "T" where the hard plastic vacuum hoses connect.... Thanks much for the help NVYMED
  14. Does one of the hard plastic lines plug directly into female orifice on the throttle body? Seems to me that someone before me, had the check valve plugged directly into the throttle body...which is incorrect? Thanks for your help.
  15. Not sure I understand....check valve plugs in where?
