  1. The 987 box needs modification as shown in the video. The aos tube can be brittle so be careful. It may be clipped to the oil filler tube in the middle. There is also a valve/tube attached to the underside of the intake manifold. If you go as far as removing the oil cooler, drop the coolant level beforehand and be prepared for a flood.
  2. Yet to be tested seriously at the track and at some point soon, on the dyno. Sound is aggressive but not crazy loud. If you can keep your foot out of it, it purrs like a kitten. Punch it and you’ll hear a much larger cat! (Uh, cat, no pun intended).It feels quite punchy at lower revs (3 to 4k), I’ll check out the curves with my tuner after the dyno. So far, I’m happy.
  3. The latest vid is up! https://youtu.be/EQZqz07jYd8
  4. Just a note to let you know that I've put up a new video on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/12shoes2 It's about locating and repairing vacuum leaks on the Boxster. Hope that it's useful for some! Cheers, -James __________________

  6. Thanks Luke, glad I could help! -James
  7. Thanks! This is my home track, LCMT (Le Circuit Mont Tremblant). It is a beautiful track next to Mont Tremblant ski station and village. There's a small lake and I like to camp next to it when I'm doing multiple track days!
  8. For those of you who have not subscribed, I wanted to let you know that the final video in the 987 air intake series is now up om my YouTube channel! https://m.youtube.com/user/12shoes2
  9. And so,... does it run?
  10. Yeah, I had to set the camera down for that one!
  11. Heater? Heaters are for ricers! No, seriously though, this is Canada. The background noise that you can often hear in my videos is when I forget to turn off my 4800 watt construction heater that can get my garage up to 10 degrees C, which precludes my showing off my muscular torso in a t-shirt!
  12. Part 2 is up. A bit more detailed for those who have requested this. Comments and questions are always welcome!https://youtu.be/WNwTvXvUksk
  13. Thanks! I have already had the rears out once when I did the Bilstein install. Hopefully it will be easier the second time around!
  14. I originally registered as NewArt, but the folks at BoXa admin must have been fans of the TV show and Newhart it became! Oh well.
