03 Boxster with Hankook RS3s, $4,500 So Cal

I have an 03 Boxster with new Hankook RS3s on it for sale. I think I seized the motor. I'm sending it to mech tomorrow. I live in Whittier CA if anyone wants to check it out. Tranny was good and there were no issues with it prior to motor seizing. Asking 4,500 Thanks

Hello everyone. I was exiting a corner and the engine stalled out. It wasnt loud like I thought a seize would be. I costed off the track and towed it home. Ill take it to a nech to determine for sure what the problem is soon. Other than that, it was amazing on the track as far as handling. It makes my M feel sloppy.

... on high-traction tires without an Accusump and/or a deep sump and/or with another type of forced lubrication, they tend to have oil starvation issues and generally fail by seizing piston rod number 6 which is the farthest one out.

Been there, done that.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro

Thanks. I think that is what happened. I thought it would only happen with full R compounds. I guess I was wrong. Amazing handling cars though. I'm more bummed out that I won't be able to hit the track and continue to grow as a driver. 😧

Did you get a full diagnosis?
Pull the front engine cover off, take the belt off
And see if the crank will turn

It's possible it was an accessory that gave out or a pulley.

Also easy enough to drop the oil filter and inspect

Thanks, I took it to a shop and they charged me $180 and I don't think they did any of that. I'm pretty mechanically uninclined

I saw a story on the Flatsix FB page where someone's seized motor was inspected and fixed by Jake in 15 mins. If I recall correctly, it was an alternator failure, maybe you should check that.
