E Gas

Recommended Posts

Do all tiptronic boxsters have E Gas i would of thought that with the way tiptronic works you wouldn't be able to have cable driven accelerators.

i am planning on retrofitting tiptronic to my 98 2.5 as i picked up the gearbox really cheap.

when i'm doing this i am planning on fitting cruise control and maybe if possible upgrade the electrics to face lift as i will have to replace the wiring loom

now i have a few questions will a facelift wiring loom plug into the gearbox.

do i need E Gas

Is there anything i need to look out for

98 boxster 2.5 man

Not all tips were e-gas as e-gas never started till 2000.. E-gas was only so the computer can have control over the throttle body, not really so much to do with tip tranny as even the 5 and 6 speed had egas after 2000. I would think a non e-gas tip tranny would be easier to retro into your car than on from an egas car tho I have real reasons why. It just seems that after 2000 it all changed and were having to deal with 97-99 with all parts from 97-99 porsche's. So if we wanna do an engine swap a 99 carerra non e-gas engine is the one to go with not an e-gas one.

THe tip tranny did come in 97-99 cars would in my mind be the easiest to get one thats from those years, most likely to be compatiable with our cars. Typically however in most auto cars the tranny has it's own computer and harness, not sure about the tip , does it have that and do you have all that related stuff?

I would think ...

The time to be buying parts is after you thoroughly understand how everything fits together. Buying a Porsche Repair Manual (the one that frequently comes on CD) would be invaluable. And sticking to parts from the same year (I know my '99 TIP trans is out in a junk yard somewhere, perfect too.) woud make things so much easier.

Now if you are going to replace the engine, trans, wiring loom, engine mamagement electronics, guages, etc you are almost better off junking your car and buying a newer one with the items you want built in from the factory.

My web site has a list of Porsche-specializing junk yards.
