    Re: Using Spare on 987.2

    An air compressor and a $15 plug kit from car parts store should resolve 95% of issues.

    Re: Accusump vs TTP vs 2qt Deep Sump vs 987.2

    996 anti foam tubes are a cheap addition along with the X51 style windage tray. I agree the TTP scavenge pumps make sense if doing track days.

    Re: First Service Surprises

    How the heck does the tech know it is previous fill is 0/20, by taste?

    Or is this new service where they made two mistakes? I would ask them to correct those if so.

    Re: Carbon Side Vents / PRogers / Amazon ..?

    Awesome. Great that someone in the USA has picked up the torch!

    I had all the OG parts. Front splitters, side vents and the wing.

    Re: Just dropped off the Cayman...

    Nice. Did TPC figure out the rear O2 sensor "not-ready" issue?
  12. Cayman S Re: Top Gear UK Decat long tube headers. (amazing build quality!)

    Cargraphics are worth the price. No issues with CEL in CA smog and great performance. Most 200 CEL will throw a CEL at some point unless you spoof them.

    Re: Cayman 3.8L X-51 Dyno Results

    Nice. Sounds like the X51 was doing its part to pick up the HP since my tq was down.

    I wish I had purchased a dyno after EVOMs intake but more importantly the Cargraphics headers and exhaust.

    S Model Re: 1st post buying 07 Cayman S

    Uh you mean just tells your DME/ECU you are at a different throttle position that what your foot is doing so you feel faster.

    DME "upgrades" are also the biggest waste of money.

    That means some genius decided to pull the toggle out two clicks to enable the rear fog lights. Surprise aftermarket LED do not support that. Now you need to put in real tail lights and perform a...

  18. Re: Re-post subwoofer pillow hack instructions please!

    Open sub and stuff in synthetic fill from a craft store. Probably easier when you take it out of the car which is a few Torx screws and disconnecting the plug IIRC.

    I did it in my 06 CS and...

    Re: Cayman 3.8L X-51 Dyno Results

    I said before I had a 320 whp @ 265 Tq dyno on stock exhaust, intake and 91 octane. Sorry I forgot to post:

    Vision did not do the X51 swap. Was just the choice of dyno spot.

    Re: Engine rebuild - what to do

    Wow great it all worked out! Now people will start asking you "What the heck kind of Boxster is that?!" as you sprint away from their car. (usually trying to impress the girl in their passenger seat)
  21. Re: Project car! Retrofit paradise (PASM, PCM, BOSE?) TPC turbo (engine swap?)

    Yep, nabbed from eBay. I did see a 997.2 3.8L configured for Cayman/Boxster on eBay for $20k. Not sure if that is a good deal.
  22. Re: Project car! Retrofit paradise (PASM, PCM, BOSE?) TPC turbo (engine swap?)

    I try and work fast. Air tools and doing a few swaps before should help. This is my 5th Porsche and will be 2nd engine swap. I do enjoy the sense of accomplishment with having the retrofit look and...
  23. Re: Project car! Retrofit paradise (PASM, PCM, BOSE?) TPC turbo (engine swap?)

    Details on the power: The 2.7L makes around 200whp and w/ TPC 2.7L kit can match a 3.8L with just shy 300whp. Not bad but I'm used to driving a X51 3.8L 987 that is around 400hp crank.

    I should of...
