  1. Don't have it fixed yet. Still getting data and will post pictures and charts shortly. Thanks
  2. Thanks guys for the response...I have to go out of town for a few days and will be back at it shortly. I'll report back with pictures. Again Thanks !!
  3. Still am wondering why I get no fault codes when car is just idling but as soon as I blip the gas I get a check engine light and the above fault codes?
  4. DME is 5.2.2 from the 2.5 Boxster Intake and throttle body is from the 996 Carrera Air filter box is from a 987 but converted to fit in the 986 3 1/2 inch silicon piping runs from air filter to throttle body MAF is stock from the 996 with the 3 inch 987 tub that holds the 996 MAF MAF is located approximately 6 inches from the throttle body opening. oxygen sensors are the stock 2.5 oxygen sensors
  5. Ahsai/ Loren, Finally got the motor in the car and started it up today....major mile stone. I had my DME re-flashed with a ROW flash. Am running CAT by pass pipes with no muffler as of yet. Put the boxster 2.5 pre-CAT oxygen sensors on the by-pass pipes. No seats in car yet. Motor started right up...at idle ...NO FAULTS !!! blipped the throttle a few times and got the following FAULT CODES: P1319 P1318 P1317 P0300 P0306 P0305 P0304 P0150 I am only guessing......... I have a bad Oxygen sensor in bank 2 (4,5,6) Cleared faults...and again at idle, it caused no fault code
  6. Make sure you listen to JFP on pressure and especially BROKEN PLASTIC IMPELLER PARTS. I learned the hard way ! It was not cheep!!
  7. Does anyone know where I can buy the fitting that connects to the high pressure side of the fuel rail? I am doing a Boxster motor swap and I am trying to run a new high pressure fuel hose to the fuel rail on the 996 3.4 motor and I can not tell what size the larger high pressure connector is or what size threads the needed female connector has or needs? Thanks in advance.
  8. Down to final steps of a 3.4 swap into my 1998 Boxster ( including a 6 speed trans). I have a number of questions I hope someone can help me with or answer for me. 1. I have enclosed a picture of my exhaust headers. Note the inside diameter of 58 mm. Also note my fabricated intake manifold (Blue silicone piping) 3 in. ID. My question is how far away from the throttle body should my MAF be placed?? I am using a BMW MAF holder (black tub)with a Porsche MAF. Should this BMW tub be as close to the throttle body as I can get it or much further away as it is in the stock Boxster
  9. Rich , I found it thanks to Ashai! The Bosch numbers on the white internal section for the 88 pin DME plug are 1 928 401 587 and 1 928 403 122. That part has two numbers on it. This plug has two different size spade connectors. The small spade connector is Bosch number 1 284 477 219(JPT AMP substitute 927 774-3). The large connector is part number 1 284 477 121(JPT AMP sub. 927 775-3). Thank you for your help, it was very much appreciated. I was unable to get a pin out without destroying it. Thanks, Bob
  10. Thanks Ahsai great detective work !! It is much appreciated !! Bob
  11. This shows the DME 81 pin connector. Notice that the connector do not match the VW connector you spoke of. I have used the VW connectors on my cruze control install but it is not the same as the DME spades. Still looking anyone have any ideas???
  12. I am in the middle of a 3.4 996 motor swap into my 98 Boxster and I have to add a wire to the #59 slot in the 88 pin DME plug. Does anyone know where I can find the female spade that goes into the DME plug? and also where I can get the insertion tool?
  13. I am looking at the Porsche 996 Workshop Manual under "Changing AFT' and see a note that says "Without ATF, the engine must not be started and the vehicle must be towed." Under item #5 on the same page it says "Move selector lever to position "P" and allow engine to idle" Item #6 "With engine running, top up ATF again until excess ATF emerges from the bore of the ATF filler screw(2)." My question is should the motor be running when you are trying to top off the ATF level? I am confused by the manuals instructions. Can someone out there with more experience than mine offer the co
  14. No, the AC was not on. I just went down and turned on the AC and the RPMs dropped !! Thanks again.
