Been having a start up rattle that was diagnosed as IMS chain tensioner . Last Saturday I popped in a new one noise is gone . Engine is 4 years old with 7K miles , from what I am told the quality of the tensioners is hit or miss .

Yup! I agree 100% with BRAN. I keep waiting to see them installed.

So from BRAN and me - Aero I sideskirts please!

Finally opened up the doors to replace the speakers. Stock speakers are actually pretty good. Dash speakers were falling apart. Now for more audio work.

Finally got to take the run i had in mind when deciding buying the Box. All the time spent under the car renewing the suspension really paid off.
Mt. Baldy to Glendora. I was the only one on the road

Gave her a bath, butter wax, detailed inside, weather tech mats and finalized placement of a powered subwoofer box along with a alpine amp to replace stock amp. Already replaced head unit and upgraded speakers

Any pics of your subwoofer? I used a sub from a cabriolet along footwell.

I did take a video, but it needs a little editing. Sidetracked by the Coolant Tank issue.

I have a pioneer enclosed and powered 8 inch sub. Will get pics later, but I am mounting about the same place as a stock sub along the inside of the passenger foot well. I don't usually have passengers and it really doesn't use up or affect the foot room on that side.


Pioneer TS-WX130DA Compact active subwoofer

Sounds similar to my setup, i blew my pioneer same model, have a kicker now. But i think i liked the pioneer more but didn't want to risk frying voice coils again.

Went out my way for the long way to breakfast and the long way home on a twisty road.

Drove an extra 60 miles on my Boxsters new tires. It really drove nice.
Also detailed the wheels after the installer covered them in grease and brake dust.

I used my Boxer to do the same thing I have been doing every eight weeks for a long time. I drove to the blood mobile and gave. I've given almost 15 gallons over the years and encourage everyone who is able, to give.

I drive that regularly. It can get a little hectic on the Glendora side. Tour de Bike's, Mt Bikes, all manner of motorcycles, horses, runners, hikers. I even had to dodge 3 skateboard luge guys one morning. Those guys are truly bonkers. We are blessed in SoCal with great roads. Pick a canyon and nail it.
