South East UK / London independent specialist sought

I bought a 2000 MY 2.7 a couple of months back and haven't been happy with the performance since I idiotically overfilled the oil shortly after taking ownership. It was drained and new plugs / filters the following day, but it still feels hesitant under load and has a slightly lumpy idle. It feels like the MAF has gone bad but I want a full diagnostic and tune up.

I need a truly knowledgable indie engineer in the south east area. Ideally someone a bit older, with glasses and a beard who really knows this engine.

Happy to spend the money but I want to really know she's in capable hands

Join Porsche Boxster Forum. It is a similar forum to this, but based in the UK.
You should be able to find local help there

Try Lee at Octane Garage in Crowborough.

Sorted mine after a cracked head and been good since.

Plenty of Porsche experience.
