what's its purpose? Please identify part bolted to engine...

Nick, are you saying that bracket would support the weight of the engine for lifting? Does not look strong enough IMHO.

That's what I was thinking prior to my post, as there are only two bolts holding it in place. But since I have never done anything like this, I wouldn't be the wiser. It also has two threaded holes to allow a nut/bolt- not sure what for, - maybe for securing a lift if indeed that's what it is for?

That bracket is indeed for lifting the engine. As for the nuts welded on the bracket, the one that is up and down is for the vent tube for the tiptronic transmission and the one that lays down on its side is for the resonance box on some boxster intakes.

just looking around, and would like to know what this is and what is it's purpose?

Thanks.

That was a good question, I was cleaning my throttle body a couple of weeks ago and was wondering the same thing. If you haven't cleaned your throttle body, it's a good idea to do so. Keeps the idle constant and the engine operating efficently.

Tom, can you post a pics or a quick set of DIY steps for doing the throttle body cleaning on the 986 correctly?

Thanks.

I don't have step by step instructions but here's what I have.

The way I removed it was to first remove the air duct then, you'll need long handled torx wrenches (star sheped) to remove the four bolts throught the throttle body.

The hardest part was getting the air duct back onto the throttle body. I've had mine off two times. The first time I used grease to help slide the body back on but was cautioned by Loren not to use grease in this area since it attracts dirt and grime. The second time I used a heat gun to expand the end of the duct so it would go over the intake to the throttle body. Others have told me it just snaps in. The end that connects to the air box does but the other end is a bear. Good luck.

Should have first looked at the pictures of my own 2.5 before responding. The intake "muffler" is bolted to the lower nut.

I wonder how much louder or cooler the intake noise would sound with that muffler removed and the hole plugged with my desnorkeled boxster... Ill try to find a plug solution and let you all know someday.

I have a 3.4 engine in my MY98 >Boxter. When installing the engine, I reused the original Boxter intake hose, cutting it and adding short extension. At the same time I took the "muffler" away. In my opinion the sound is much better.

We were comparing a stock Boxter S sound and my (stock) exhaust sound, and mine was much deeper, much better! I have desnorkeled the intake as well...

I have a recently acquired 2002 base model boxster; about to replace AOS due to severe smoking after 1st oil change w 0w-40 Mobil one. Anybody think this oil could have brought on the smoking? And in terms of removing throttle body for cleaning, could I loosen the hose clamps on the big hose leading to the intake manifold and rotate the whole assembly upwards to get better access to the TB screws? (Already got the hose to the air filter box loose.) They seem very awkward to get at in normal position...

Thanks,

Diamond

I have a 98 5 speed and the bracket is also used to support the engine from up above when the transaxle is dropped to replace the clutch and flywheel and also to replace the RMS and IMS. It also provides a support for the little ear that protrudes from the intake tube that connects the air filter and the throttle body. This is the same intake tube that connects to the MAS. I recently had to reinstall the intake tube and found it real easy once I removed the bracket totally and then reinstalled it once the tube was in place.
