  1. They pulled the voltage readings from the MAF even when open throttle,it would barely top 2 volt....they sprayed it with cleaner....2.5volts full throttle. It should be near 5 volts full throttle...MAF is bad. They said the values though for each side were the same.
  2. Just got word from the shop....MAF was bad....made no sense they said because normally the when the MAF goes it creates CEL codes indicating both side are either rich or lean...not just one side.
  3. CEL came on(solid),gave code P1130. Drives fine. As soon as I remove the oil filler cap,the idle gets funky,any ideas?
  4. Replacing the AOS isn't hard and anyone could help you with it(if I can make it I will help you). F.Y.I. the bellow part of the AOS is a spring clamp. I'd suggest ordering some high grade screw type clamps. I've been told by several shops that the OEM metal clamp ones don't hold their strength when removed. It makes it super easy to install the new AOS.
  5. The AOS is a quick 1-3 hour job on a Boxster and I'd be more then willing to help you out with it. I've done one once already,no biggie. Now if it's a 996........
  6. Install a 9x7 shifter assembly. It will fix your issue.
  7. Simple they pay people off. In Sacramento my friend gets away with it by, knowing someone at the DMV($300) or paying the shop twice as much and they pass it. I've been warned about my Top Speed muffler........I'm wondering what would happen if I install the Fabspeed 2nd cat bypass pipes if shop would even know.
  8. I'd like to thank the Borden's for hosting the event and their willingness to work with my mistake. Your air gun is awesome! Kirk THANK YOU! I really appreciate your help. There is no way possible I could have done that without you. It was nice to meet you and Alex. Loren thanks for testing the car out for me. Nice to finally put a face with a member who has been helping me out and giving me advice for awhile. I was also nice to see some other familiar faces I've met in the past. These are the types of events that give people confidence to work on their cars......unless you forget to torque lug bolts :D. If you ever want to learn about your car or see some neat cars just head out to a Work On Card Day!
  9. I heard the K-Sport coilovers are HARSH. How do you like them?
  10. OK. Finally problem solved: 1) I had 3 bad O2 sensors, and I know why. Well actually I got 3 after market O2 sensors "$18 each- I was curious". I cut the old sensors connectors and reconnected the wires from new sensors to old connectors. Now I am not sure if the sensors are not good for boxster’s application, or if I made a mistake and miss-wired. As a solution I got 3 new O2 sensors and that resolved the issue. "I shall get the after market O2 sensors try and re-wire them see if I can make them work". Car did not run rich any more, no smelly exhaust or black smoke. 2) The second part of the problems was caused by a leak in the cold Air intake hose connecting air throttle body to air intake cone. All the after market hoses I purchased "as much as $375" did not work and kept leaking air. I think they did not work because they were designed to fit a car with e-gas air throttle “which points opposite direction from none e-gas. At the end I got 3" aluminum pipe + 2 x 90 degree silicone hoses + 2 straight silicone hoses and D-clamps. Customizing cold air intake hose is the way to go. Looks nice, fits perfect. No more Air leaks and no more CE warning!! "p.s i shall add pics later in my '2.5tip to 3.4 conversion' post" A serious thank you to Loren and Todd, you guys rock Thanks again Ali :renntech: Do you mind posting the info on the generic o2 sensors that you used? Where did you buy them? Did you do any special type of connection from the old wires - new?
  11. A bump to keep to keep it going. I posted on PPBB,hopefully a couple of members sign up. Has anyone posted a link to the event on 6-speed,Rennlist & 986forum?
  12. Loren, Is it o.k. if Kirk and I swap out springs if we use jacks and jack stands? - Kirk, I don't mind coming early at all. I have 2 jacks and 2 jack stands. I can bring those. If you would bring your spring compressor that would be AWESOME. I don't have too many tools either so if there is anything special that you used when swapping yours out could you bring those as well?
  13. No problemo Loren. I was thinking it was a big D.I.Y. for a group day but it was worth a shot. I guess I'll have to try tackling it with another forum member at another date. If I can think of any other work to be done,I'll post. Thanks, Robert
  14. I don't know what 'MY' means but I think it has something to do with the build of the car?! I have a 01' Boxster S,6-spd. All OEM suspension wise and I'm looking to install H & R springs. Loren, Should I order the ball joint separator featured here and pick up a spring compressor for the event? http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...amp;#entry56444 Thanks, Robert
  15. Looks like we have a list of stuff we can do. What is a good date(s) for the host so we can get a better idea?
  16. Hey Chuck, I don't know if you remember me but I recommended you to Jimmy at Mobile Porsche Works to work on your Slantnose awhile back. This could be a great chance you meet you. I know mfltech(might be slightly different),the dude you sold you old 996 to,might up for attending. I'm sure there are plenty others who would want to join in. This section on Renntech is just kinda hidden,I wouldn't even know about it Loren didn't PM me it awhile back. Should we post about this on rennlist as well? Take care, Robert
  17. I would love to attend this if we get it going. I'm thinking of changing out the springs on my 01' Boxster S. I'd like to put on H & R springs on the OEM shocks.
  18. Let me set something straight; -halogen assembly w/ Xenon conversion is nice and bright,but the light projected isn't perfectly laid out -Litronics look cool and are nice,not as much light output as a conversion but the light stays where it should be. I have a Xenon conversion on my 01' 986 S and Litronics on my 01' 996 c2. Conversion are amazing for the price but I'd get real Litronics if you can afford it.
  19. As long as it doesnt leak more than a quarter size of oil a week I wouldn't worry. Just top it off until you need a new clutch,flywheel or so on. Don't take it to a stealership to get it done. Go to a P-Car indy shop,they will have experience with replacing r.m.s.,save yourself the $.
  20. Yes, it is. The only reason I know is because I just broke mine yesterday. Be extremely careful. How did you break it? I'd recommend going to the dealer and getting a spare "just in case" because breakage often happens with this plug. I can't believe, in all honesty, that so many other things are done right, but your car can be crippled because some moron wanted to save 12 cents on a plug by making it out of plastic rather than steel... Yeah tell me about it......my radiator is leaking on the driver side where the coolant line connects to the plastic inlet(outlet?). What crap,my Nissan Quest has a fully metal radiator. Pic from above my center radiator. Pic from below. Be aware: I had a hell of a time getting one from my local Porsche dealer...he kept insisting that wasn't from a Boxster radator, but from a 944. Funny you mention that. I talked to Jeff @ Sunset and he said the 944s radiator had a blue plug that sounds like what I described to him off of my 986. Do you happen to have the part no. for the drain plug? Does it have that little metal part attached to it or is that a seperate part no.?
  21. To the above poster. Mine is a 01' 986 S 6-spd. Same spec are your 00'.
  22. It's on the driver rear bottom side,it's blue and looks like it is removable with a screw. Anyone know if that is a drain plug before I remove it?
