I'm installing the glass window top from EZontops, on my 99 boxster. So far so good except I can't get the front part of the cloth to stick under the header bow. Has anyone done this, or have any idea what type of glue to use?
I need a new top, my plastic window broke in the cold. I want to upgrade to a glass window, and have read a few people like the GAHH top for our models. GAHH has their top listed for $900.00 but I have seen them on ebay new for $600.00, and I was wondering if anyone has bought a top from ebay, and if so what their experience was. Thanks 99 Boxster non S
My AOS (air oil separator) is extremely dirty once again after only a few months after replacing it. Also my rough idle is back. This had been resolved when i replased the AOS originally, indicating that it the AOS once again. The car is a 99 Boxster with a 3.4 996 conversion engine. I believe the AOS was from a boxster and replace with a boxster AOS. Are these parts interchangeable ? Could that be my problem? What else could cause the AOS to get extremely dirty? Thank you for your help. 99 Boxster 5 spd 3.4 996 conversion
Well, my car is extremely low. The reason this is relevant is because I hit a protruding man hole cover and broke an elbow like structure which attaches to one of my coolant hoses underneath the car on the drivers side. All that was left when I looked under was a hanging hose, pieces of the part and the gasket and bolts. It looks alot like the thermostat housing and therefore I bought the assembly only to discover that it didn't fit. I'm attaching a picture to this msg. If anyone could help me identify the part I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks everyone. Car is: 1999 Porsche Boxster non S with a 3.4 996 Engine conversion 5spd Manual
Sorry about that, I just wasn't sure if I should post it in the main 986 page so that more people would see my question. The car is a 99 Porsche Bosxter non s, with a 3.4 conversion. Thanks
Thanks Bill I appreciate the info. I was thinking the same thing. To add to the sports clutch and lightened flywheel theory I had the clutch as you put it is uncomfortable, it's either engaged or not, impossible to drive smoothly. I'll be looking out for a stock assembly. Anyone have any suggestions as for where to shop for one? Also what should labor on that be?
I have 3.4 conversion on my 986. The conversion was done by the previous owner. Aside from the engine he did many other other upgrades ie hid kit hr coilovers etc....Among these upgrades was what I was told to be a lightened flywheel and sports clutch. My question is: if this is the case how can I tell ? I was told that lightened fly wheels make an oscillating rasping noise when the clutch is not engaged and the car is in neutral, which my car does. Also I believe my clutch is starting to give out because it slips but only under heavy load. Under normal driving it engages fine. Is that common? My last question is, if I indeed have a lightened flywheel, do I need a special clutch, also am i shopping for a 911 clutch or a boxster clutch?
Porsche_Monkey_4life replied to catmanluge's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Where exactly does the resistor go? Anyone have a write up on this?
What are some of the Air/fuel ratio meter's you guys have used. I am looking for one that doesn't rely on the stock O2 sensor. Maybe something that comes with it's own sensor, as I don't trust mine to function properly. Thanks
Welcome ! I think you will find the people here very friendly and helpful at least I have. Thanks everyone. :renntech:
Thanks Todd. So what should I be looking for as an indicator that I have the correct throttle body?
