    Thanks for thinking of me. I'm not looking for any engine components at this time, but you never know what might happen! All the best, Tom.

    Sounds good to me. But how's the switch, mine I could shake it in my hand and hear the pieces. You take paypal? Shoot me a paypal invoice and I'll pay it if the parts good. chaiyz@att.net

    Just read that you built a 3.6L Boxster motor. I assume you used the LN sleeves etc. Although I did not attend Raby school, this is one of the choices I am considering for my own 01 Box S. I would appreciate your advice. Another option I am considering is just having 2 or 3 EBay spare motors to swap in as needed.

    Try turning the ignition key to the on position while a battery maintainer is plugged into the lighter socket, should give you enough juice to pop the lid.

    Hi BYprodriver,
    I may have an interest in the headers if they will fit a 2000 with a 2.7L engine. Pllease email me pics and price for shipping to 33426. My email is sackoor@yahoo.com.

    pro can you take a look at my thread in perf&tech and let me know what you think? I am having doubts about my timing. I followed the thread about DIY cam timing and the marks are all 100% (it looks it anyhow) but I am not getting any of the 3 cylinders on 4-6 to fire. Spark and fuel are there, but no temp from the exhaust. It doesn't make any metallic noises, or banging like a piston-to-valve, but it just wont run.

    After about 10 seconds of idling cylinder 1-3 manifold was warm to the touch, cylinder 4-6 manifold was still cold.

    what am i missing?

    First, let me say that the way things are going; the Girl Scouts are going to kick some Philly butt...... What an embarrassment that team has become.

    We don't do alignments ourselves, we farm them out to a local race car chassis shop, who unfortunately is very difficult to get time with (even for us). That said, western PA is a big place so I would need some better idea where the guy is in order to suggest who he might look at. In addition, if the poster is westsiderkg, I to have also seen the posts and I think that there is something wrong with that car based upon the fact he seems to get the brush off from some shops with lame excuses. Sounds more like they take one look at it and say “Oh ****************! Tell the owner we can’t do it.” These cars are simply not that hard to set up.

    Sgt Brad, I have about 10k miles on the 3.6 I built for my car, I drove it up to Monterey for the Rennsport reunion last Oct. It is a blast to drive & much easier with all the extra torque. I have another 3.6 finished & started on another one. Exhaust pipe size is designed to maintain the highest velocity of gases passing thru the pipe. If the pipe is too big it slows velocity & you lose torque. The stock Boxster S exhaust pipe size is fine for street driving except for the converters. My 3.6 is 220 cubic inches with 6 cylinders which is close to the size per cylinder of a 302 V-8 & you don't want 2" header tubes on street 302.

    i saw a while ago that you had a 3.6 you had built based on jake raby's class. i'm not interested yet in an engine upgrade, but was hoping to get your impression on two things.
    1. have you run the 3.6 or driven a raby 3.6? there seems to be only limited experiences with complete raby builds for the boxster and since it's very spendy, i am curious on actual experiences.
    2. rather than start a thread i wonder your thoughts on why the primary and exhaust tubing is so small on the porsche. i would have thought that 2" would be minimum for best performance, yet even on my aftermarket b&b exhaust it seems to be much smaller? do you subscribe to the school of thought that the tubing diameters restrict flow and power?

    thanks in advance for your reply. sorry i'm not in the market for the 3.6. i am hoping to hear good things about the build.
