Could someone tell me the capacity is? I'm curious how much was actually in there.



The good news is that the oil and filter came out clean and free of debris. Last oil change I got a scare with some shavings, but I guess that was a result of the time my (soon-to-be-EX) wife did DE.
I changed mine a couple of months ago, almost 3 lts.

Replaced the rear deck speakers



Old original speakers were worn out and decaying.



Replacement speakers. I went with the FaitalPRO 3" full-range woofers from Parts Express. They fit perfectly in the factory plastic except for 1 speaker tab needing to be removed on the outermost speaker on each side. They sound way better (how could they not) than the factory ones.

I did the dash speaker replacement years ago.

I missed the chance to kick it, but I did slam dunk it into the garbage can. It was a cathartic experience.

I thought that the speakers would be 4 ohm, not 8 ?

sunny day drive

I drove the Boxster to work today and put the top down (the first time this year) for my drive home. Took the curvy route along the river, a great way to de-stress after a hard day. The car seemed to be especially happy today, or maybe that was just me...

cheers - dj

The originals are 6 ohm wired in parallel (which takes the load town to 3 ohm) from what I could tell. I was more comfortable replacing the two 6 ohm speakers with two 8 ohm as that takes the load down to 4 ohm. A 2 ohm load is harder on an amp which would be the load with two 4 ohm speakers (I am not powering them off an amp, just the factory head unit for now).

The 8 ohms work very well as they do not take as much to drive from the factory stereo. They sell the exact same speakers at 4 ohm load also if you prefer to try.

Cleaned Radiators/Replaced Ballast Resistors

Finally cleaned out radiators and replaced 2 faulty ballast resistors while my bumper is being repainted. What a mess!

And now there is low speed fan!!!
