Anyone had this problem. I have a 2002 Boxster S with 75k with cracks around the welds of the ports to the flange..2 on one side and one on the other.

Ironic that you posted this yesterday. I've been working with my shop to figure out what is causing a CEL on my car. I blew the AOS a few months ago and I'm getting a Bank 1 adaptation code. My car is an 01 S with ~62K miles, daily driven.

They had the car yesterday doing some MAF logging and threw the car on the rack to check out the underside.

Basically they told me the same thing. I have cracks at the port welds on the front cylinder on each side. Evidently bank 1 is worse.

We cleared the code and I am driving it again. But I also found out I have two drips on the bellhousing... RMS starting to leak. So I was instructed to burn out the clutch, and come see them again At that point I'll probably deal with the whole sordid mess.

Sounds like a 5 minute welding session would fix that......

Sounds like a reason to buy a set of headers to me.

Sadly on the outside looking in.
