  1. Hi All, The factory alignment on my new 2014 boxster was pulling slightly to the left. Now after an alignment (I found out they used a older John Bean machine, instead of their new Hunter as it was tied up with another client :( ) it seems to pull to the right a bit or a slight bias to the right... Can anyone read over the spec attached and tell me what they think... any idea why it would have a slight bias to the right... whenever I take my hands off the wheel that where is goes ever so slightly. Would the Hunter machine made a difference? I sound like a complete idiot when I
  2. Something doesn't make any sense. on the image above it states Camber at -20? from the link below in the forum, it states camber -1.5 How on earth is camber at -20? the car wouldn't drive? I must be reading this very wrong..
  3. If want the car to track MORE straight.. and left input everyseconds.. that how it is feeling now... the slightest rock on the road on uneven pavement the car totally shift left and right.. way more than my previous 987.. what would be the best numbers (camber/toe) to aim for?
  4. Hi Loren, Thanks for that. Would you know a base 2014, with no features..which coloums would be applicable? - the "Standard" or one of the others? Also the tolerences are very high... if I'm reading this correctly..for examplple - Rear Axle - Toe per wheel on standard says 8'..but then a tolerance of +-5'? Is that a huge tollerance on 8'
  5. Hi All, Does anyone have the original alignment/factory specs for the 2014 981 boxster w/18" wheels? I'm going for any alignment as my new car tracks a little to the left and just wondering the proper specs... The wheel actually seems to track all over the place but straight..constant inputs required... I just hope its an alignment issue and not the electric steering..as I never had that before.. Thanks
  6. Hi All, Does anyone know in the above (in the thread) wiring diagram the REAR outputs are active/live? And is there wiring coming out of the wiring harness for this? The reason, I'm trying to figure this out is two fold. I would like to install some speakers in the rear speaker space and if they are live, it would give a more complete sound on my base setup of two speaker in the cabin. I bought a car off the lot, so I didn't have the option to upgrade :( The other reason I ask, is that I would like to install a small Kenwood KSC-SW11 self powered sub under the passenger seat
  7. Hi All, I have a 2014 981 Base (non bose and no audio upgraded). I have burnt a MP3 CD that work fine, I like to listen to my songs in Shuffle Mode. But I have the upgraded Sports steering wheel with no controls on it. I would like an EASY way to advance to the next song with the control bar (not sure what it is called or Stalk behind the steering wheel that controls the mini-display on the dash), Is there a trick with that control bar to advance to the next song in Shuffle mode? The only thing that seems to work is the next button directly on the radio itself. I'm worried it with
  8. Hi Loren, I unfortunately don't have the Bose option :( I picked up the last 2014 off the lot with a significant discount. But it has the base 2 x 25 watt output, its not bad, but I need a sub to fill in the bottom. I'm deciding between the Kicker Hideaway and the Kenwood self powered sub. Basically whatever will fit under the passenger seat. This should be enough audio to fill in the bottom of the sound. It's too bad I can't find a place to put it in the cabin without causing seat vibration (like the bose's sub output is between the two seats. If I could have ordered the car wi
  9. Hi Loren, Thanks for this diagram! Much appreciated. Four quick followup questions: 1) is there any interface made by a 3rd party company that will allow the CDR31 to interface in some way, and derive a Line Level output that I can put to a 3rd party amp/sub setup? I rather not conver high to low, bu have it done with an interface box if that is possible. 2) Since there are speaker outputs for the rear (I understand from my reading that there are no speakers in those spots, would it be possible to install speakers in those rear locations and wire them to the unused connect
  10. I'm trading my 987 in for a 981 2014 model year. Its the base CDR... no nav or upgrades... I looked for hours but can't find the back of that head unit... or wiring output :(
  11. Hi All, I'm just about to order a 2014 off the dealer lot and it doesn't have any stereo upgrades (no bose, no pcm, no stereo plius, just the 2x25 watts). I currently have a 987 that I'm trading in that did have the Bose. I love music, but this is what they got on the lot. I want to just add a simple self powered kenwood sub under the seat (sw11) or similar this year and then later on upgrade the door speaker and and a decent amp. I want to know if there is ANY way to get a line out from the factor head unit, as I want to keep that stock. I don't want to use a JL Clean Sweep
  12. I have the original Durametric 5 but there is nothing about Readiness or anything similar to that in the manual or anywhere in the tool.
  13. Loren, thanks for the detailed response, much appreciated. That being said, I'm seeing strange things on the Durametric tool. When I start the care and run the tool in realtime Actual Values mode, the Cylinder misfires are detected immediately on random cylinders anywhere from 0 to 7 misfires, but then the values do not increase from idling or driving? Could it be perhaps just misfiring on startup? Also when I check for Fault codes or the Fault memore, the care registers with Durametric "No Fault codes". So is there a chance I'm just reading the values incorrectly, and perhaps ther
  14. Hi all! Many months ago I had a problem with the MAF shutting down the engine/staffing it on startup (tried cleaning it no luck). I disconnected the MAF and it ran fine on the default values, just burning more fuel. Now its time to get my emissions test so I bit the bullet and bought a new Bosch MAF. I installed the MAF, and the durametric software cleared the fault codes and the new MAF is giving off normal values hovering around 10-13 on car idle. The issue I am having is that I am receiving multiple misfires on all the cylinders through the Durametric software when the new MAF i
  15. That's funny the tech at the Toronto dealership charged me $80 for the Recall Letter. Guess its all in the approach... no standards for this stuff... Joe
