  1. So I've been trying to figure this out for days ... my convertible top is stuck in the "up" position. When I release the handle from the roof and press the top down button, I can hear the relay click and the dashboard indicates that the top is lowering but nothing else happens. The windows don't dip, no noise from the back, nothing - just a relay click and dashboard notification. So far I've tried: Swapped relays for top up and down New Fuse in spot E3 (power top) New top latch microswitch None of this has made any difference, still just the same as when I started. I'm really at a loss a
  2. Drive by - same camera - I'll try and get a different one out tomorrow:
  3. Yeah, I do need to find a more accurate recording apparatus. I know everyone says "the video doesn't do it justice", but that's really the truth.

I was initially concerned with flow as well, but from all of my reading on these it doesn't seem to be a huge issue based on dyno numbers provided from other vehicles. The restriction from the inserts seem to be less than that of the factory exhuast. If anything, it added some back pressure back that I had lost from the straight pipes. I will try and get to the Dyno next week and see how it does.
  5. So I recently purchased a 2007 Boxster and having just came from a fire-breathing Corvette I was looking for a good exhaust option to replace the anemic factory exhaust. Mine is the 2.7 base without the PSE. After finding that cat-back exhaust systems for the 987 were ridiculously priced I set out to see if I could build something that could give me what I was looking for: fairly loud (the Corvette was very loud), low to no cabin drone, and an aggressive sound. Thus begins my journey. I started by removing the factory exhaust just after the first set of catalytic converters:
