  1. Thanks Wayne, Does the Dansk S muffler drone or resonate? Bill
  2. I have a quick question for the gruppe. I have a '99 986 with a "Top Speed Pro1" muffler on the car right now, and I really like the look with the dual round outlets, but the exhaust resonates in the car from 2000 to 2800 RPM with the top up. Will a muffler from a 986s fit on a regular 986? Does anyone have any experiences with other mufflers that might be a little throatier than stock. Thanks Bill.
  3. Thanks Loren. I was going to replace the o-ring, as usual you and this group have been an invauluable resource. Bill F
  4. The part I'm looking for is # 15 Thanks. Bill F
  5. I have a 99 boxster and I need the part number for the oil fill tube. I need the section that bolts to the engine block. Apparently 11 years of living in the heat of the engine compartment makes this plastic piece very brittle and it snapped off at the bend wher it bolts to the engine case. TIA Bill F. Lexington KY.
  6. Do a search for OBC hack. You will have to make up a wiring harness that plugs the stalk/switch to the the white plug behind the instrument cluster and ground the switch. like this obc hack or this obc wiring. Thanks for the direction I did the hack 2 weeks ago. It was relatively easy. this forum is truly an ocean of knowledge. Thanks again Bill. :renntech:
  7. I have a 99 Boxster that has the outside temp displayed in the instrument cluster. I just bought the stalk/switch for the On Board Computer (OBC). Does anyone know wheere or which plug in the steering column this switch should plug into. Thanks in advance. BillF. Lexington KY
  8. I just installed the speakers this past weekend. Thanks to everyone for the advice and links to the install instructions. I had the center console out of the car to hard-wire my Valentine V1 so I ran the wires down the center console. This is really an easy way to go and the console comes out very easily. I think I had finished the wiring in less than 45 minutes. :renntech: Bill
  9. There is also an alternate route for the cabling going via the centre console which is allegedly much easier than the passenger sill..... see bottom of attached PDF (from another poster). I believe this won't necessitate disconnecting the battery, so no problems with airbag lights, electric window calibration etc..... I am going to attempt this soon and must admit the instructions aren't very clear in describing the steps to get the harness routed from the clip on the roll bar, to under the carpet to the centre console. If anyone has some pictures that would be great! Thanks for the in
  10. I have just bought the facory rear speakers for my '99 Boxster. I was wondering if any one knew te routing of the cable from the rear speakers to the head unit or amplifier. I have the factory CDR 220 unit. Thanks in advance for all your help. Bill. :renntech:
  11. It is a 968 badge with the 8 and 6 trading places. 944.559.220.03.70C 968 logo in rally black -- US MSRP $30.08 Thanks for the information
  12. I have seen a few Boxsters running about with "986" badges on the trunk. Can anyone tell me what the part number is or where I can get one in the aftermarket if they aren't available from the dealer. Thanks.
