New to the Porsche family - Boxster with 996 Engine swap

Hi all... I recently purchased a 1997 Boxster base model 5 speed, at an amazing price, may I add... and I wanted to introduce myself and the car to the forum as new members. I bought this car as a project car of which I was lucky that it already has some major upgrades done to it. The Box has a 996 H6 3.4 engine swap performed, performance headers with full custom exhaust system, custom cold air intake, ECU tuned, coilovers, wheels, etc... However, along with these upgrades there's allot of wear and tear that comes along that I need to work on, such as convertible top needs replacement, worn and slight ripped seats, hood needs to be resprayed, etc.. The car was actually one of eight cars the previous owner had and was between a F355 Ferrari and a Bentley sport coupe in the garage... Seemed well taken cared off as it was his first baby, as he said, but was not used for the past 2 years.. Well, I bought it and drove it home 150 miles to my house and after coughing a few times and having to go through the old gas, the car ran strong and truly is a beast in the street. Now is time to perform a full service overhaul... Here is a picture for you guys...
