Perhaps. I am running a Guard LSD in mine (though the next time around I'm going to do the OS Giken, as Guard hasn't exactly gone in the right direction since the sale of the company).

Lots and lots of race teams, and the guys over at Gbox use the Delvac 75W90, which is what I have in my 996 box at the moment (which also has a Guard LSD in it) and I'm plenty happy with it. I've...

Snap-on....

I have 3/8 and 1/2 Techangle wrenches, and they are incredible. Again, not cheap, but I certainly trust them.

Once in a while I'll buy something from Harbor Freight (I happen to...

FYI, the 03-up motors (other than 996 and Cayman S) do NOT have VarioCam Plus. They DO utilize the vane cell type cam advance of...

I sure as hell wouldn't be crawling under a car on that thing.....

If you have tight space, and want a lift which isn't "permanent," look at the Danmar Max Jax.

They changed in 2003 to appear more flush, and they become body colored.

Either way, they are different from left to right. The left is there to be an intake air scoop for the engine, the right...

If you can't feel the difference in power, me thinks something isn't quite right. My LN based 3.8 in my Boxster S was faster than SH$T.

Exactly. If you're trying to save this guy money, don't touch the thing, as trying to make this better, while trying to save money just ain't gonna work.

Ummmmm "will two 6204 bearings fit?" Are you kidding?

You are clearly lost on this procedure, and have added that you're trying to do this as cheaply as possible.

And then some..... now that we're into the colder weather... 5000-6000 FPM at 280 Kts at lighter weights is pretty typical in the 10.

Given your mileage, I wouldn't even dream of only replacing one side header/ cat.

Replace both cats and at least both pre-cat O2 sensors.

As to the bolts, while I have yet to have one shear...

You can try a recalibration. You will need a PST2 or PIWIS. There must be 16 liters of fuel in the tank (so you have to fully drain it, and add back 16 liters).
