Mechanic spirit

Hey! I have my first Porsche it's a 01 boxster S since a month and have spent some good hrs checking, replacing, understanding things and the forum has been really helpful. I'm about to make an important buy of spares from the US as I live in Chile and I'm happy to share the process. Body and interior is better than ok so I'll invest in mechanics. IMS is a must for what I've learnt and I've discovered some brown pieces in the oil pan (removed to check plastic particles) so maybe I'll order some chain rail guides. Maybe a main engine seal and some other minor parts like spark plug covers, a few deteriorated spark plug coils, belt, air filter etc.. very excited and happy with this little but fine toy/project.

A few hrs changing spark plugs, some coils and spark plug sleeves/tubes before taking the engine out, got the IMS but saving for the chain rails, maybe I'll do it in the next oil change in 5 months.Name:  20201017_145006.jpg
