Glad I didn't take it to the dealer

Mission accomplished! It took time, patience, sore muscles, and lots of help from my friends here on the forum, but I finally got that right side transmission mount installed. If any one attempts to do this, removing the cat is the secret. I wish I would have figured that out before I tried to take the faulty part out in the first place. None of the tutorials nor Bentley mention this little tip. Installing the new mount was a pain until I removed the converter and then it went really smooth. Now while I have her up in the air I will do my first oil change and flush the brake fluid, then bleed the clutch. By the time this snow melts she'll be ready to hit the road in pristine condition. Hey, no bolts or nuts left over so that's a good sign! Thank you to all those who offered encouragement and advice.

Congrats! There are tasks with the Boxster that once completed they are truly a life lesson.
