Does diagram in post #12 here help?

Blue goes to purple.

Green goes to the valve that's under your passenger side (if your steering wheel is on the left) intake manifold.

<EDIT: This may be wrong, as you've stated you have a four hose splitter, instead of the three.>

It's been a while since I had my head in a Boxster engine compartment. I just can't seem to remember that line marked in red. If I remember, I'll reply back.

Looking at your picture again, I may be wrong. It appears that valve where the blue and the green are is probably your switch for the resonance flap valve? Which, is probably under the driver's side manifold?

I'm seriously having a hard time visualizing this. Which direction in the picture is forward?

It appears, using the chart in post #3 of the link to Pelican you provided:The black dome thing in the bottom right of your picture is F.The black/white valve to the right of the purple in your picture is H.The switch with the blue and green is probably J. Find K and you'll see where to connect green to.

If that switch is truly J, then connect blue to purple.

I really can't tell what the red is. A better picture of it may help.

And neither the yellow. What does the other end connect to?

Oh wow, yeah. Much different than my setup. Let me look at the pic for a bit and I'll respond back.

Okay, these are my guesses. Someone that actually has a 4-way splitter system can give you better advice.

I can't tell in the pic if it's connected, but that black/white valve needs to connect to the throttle body sleeve. More specifically, the black side of that valve connects to the sleeve and the white side to the 4-way splitter.

The blue circle in the second pic should connect to the pink in the second pic. In the first pic, it's the blue to purple.

Green in both pics should go to the switch that controls the resonance flap.

I really can't tell what the red is in the second pic. Is that the same as the yellow in the first pic?

yeah, red is the same as yellow in first pic witch i think leads to (K)- (Resonance flap valve)

If one end of that line is connected to the resonance flap valve, then the other end connects to green in both pics.

I PM'd you. I'll try to help more tomorrow.

      Tried googeleing it but couldn’t find what I was after.    Was curious if anyone knows what type of flat 6 the 986 boxster has?
       
      Is it a a true boxer engine? Or a horizontally opposed flat V?     True boxer meaning it has individual crank pins for each piston and is a true 180degree angle.    Thanks in advance

      The rear window on my 2001 S has separated from the canvas, and the tan top is dingy and past its prime. I no longer have a garage, so I am forced to outsource it. I would appreciate some informed opinions.
       
      I'm looking at a GAAH A5 Acoustic glass window top. The dealer is saying $2,700-$3k installed. A reputable convertible/interior specialist is coming in at $2,200. The dealer talked about needing to buy additional sound insulation, clips and etc., which is either building in additional profit, or it may be totally justified because they have experience and might provide additional quality. I don't have an excess of cash for a 18 y/o car so I'm soliciting experienced opinions:
       
      Assuming the local top specialist is truly skilled at their game, should I expect that they can handle this, along with connecting the heating element?  I doubt they have done many A5 Acoustic glass retrofits, whereas the dealer has likely done a few. If I go with the local specialists, are there some unique things I need to specify they order/replace/pay attention to? Should I give more weight to (a) Porsche dealer that only occasionally does a top or (b) the people who do tops all the time, but just not Porsches?    
      All informed opinions are welcome. 
      Thanks!

      Recently I had been noticing issues with my cooling system the coolant temp guage would go past the 0 on 180 and I wouldn’t hear fans or anything. (Already tested fans and resistors and relays).   The temperature Will continue to creep up if I sit still, with no signs of fans, AC OFF.

      I replaced the coolant temp sensor. Problem fixed!! Then same issue again it seems after a week of driving.  

      Now i currently have ordered another temp sensor just Incase I maybe did something to cause the other new one too fail, I’ll be changing it again today.

      However I was doing the climate control hack to check my actual temperatures today while doing a short troubleshooting drive. And I noticed my oil temperature said 0, which is physically impossible 🙄


      Is it possible the oil temp guage is throwing off the coolant sensor?    Is it even possible for the oil temp sensor too go bad but not the oil level sensor? (They are a 2 in 1 sensor)   

      THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

      I need to replace the ATF wiring harness in my 2002 986 w/ tiptronic due to a defective temperature sensor that forms part of it. I have been unable to find any information as to what it entails and / or how it can be replaced.   Appreciate any insight.
