Ali,

Flashing the 996 3.4 maps on the 2.5 ecu solved the shifting problems you had initially? So no need to do anything with the tiptronic ecu? How is it sofar, any hickups?

Henk

Hello Every one .I am back working on my boxster 3.4 :D ok flashing the ECU from 2.5 to the 996 3.4 ECU did the trick and fixed the shifting problems. now the tiptronic shifts perfectly, and the manual mood works perfect too. there is more work i did and i shall update when i get to my warehouse "where i work on my car". one update is connecting pin 59 to 996 manifold on engine. and connecting vacume lines properly "including the one for tiptronic".

doing this but i think it looks good.. i hope lol.. oh yeah and i got rid of the spare tire to make space :(

here is whats inside:

Amp 1 : “A/D/S PQ40.2” 4 x 100Amp true RMS to run front and rear speakers “high

and mids”.

Speakers and cross overs: 2 X MB quart Qsd-213 for front and rear speakers .

Amp 2 : Rockford Fosgate to run subwoofer

Subwoofer : Focal 13ks , 5” 180 Watts “Bass”

Capacitor : Alumapro Cap5 , 5 Farad.

Head unit : Nakamichi CD-400

Ok it seems like I resolved my CE issues with the car, now I need to buy a Durametric tool to clear Airbag light. Does any one know if airbag light would prevent airbag from working?

Ali

That will depend on what the fault code is that turned the airbag light on.

I heard the K-Sport coilovers are HARSH. How do you like them?

Well I did not address the whole suspension issue yet. I took my car to an alignment shop for standard alignment, so far so good. But I do want to lower the car in the rear a little, plus see how far can I go with perfecting handling. I had Eibach springs with standard boxster suspension prior to this; the car drove more comfortably with the Eibach springs. Yes now it seems harsh in comparison to before. Where did you hear or read it rides harsh with k-sports? Any info would be helpful with my current updates.

Thanks

Ali

Well after the 3.4 install on my boxster, the airbag light came automatically. When I plug my ODBII it shows no error codes “using 996 odometer in my boxster”. From what I read here, it seems like a Durametric tool should clear the airbag light. I was just wondering would clearing the airbag light affect the airbags or disable them?

No, clearing the fault does not affect the air bag performance. If the fault is still present it will cause a fault (and light) again until the fault cause is corrected.

Ali. The K-sport suspension looks almost exactly like my G4 Racing system.

http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=11342

They could well be different branding of the same stuff. If they are the same, then my experience with mine is they are very harsh indeed. My back hurts a little after driving in the car for too long. All speed humps must be approached very cautiously. I don't race my car. So I don't know how much improvement it offers on a track. But on the road, it certainly reduces body roll and improved cornering a fair bit.
