FYI, I bought the same radiator as the one you're using in the frunk and was very pleased with the build quality for how cheap it was. The only problem with it is the pressure valve on the cap is too...

I'm no expert but I'm thinking the only way gas can get into the oil is a leaking injector or maybe a very rich running motor. Maybe the oil you're using just smells that way?

I completely opened up the front of the frunk down to the floor pan. Below the radiator is one big scoop. The air then exits out the vents on the hood or back at the cowl. Mostly the cowl.

How well do you know John Gladwill? He took his 1997 spb boxster and put a 3.4 with 3.2 heads and a cayman intake in his. He'll be at ECR next weekend

It was the lowest turnout I've ever seen at COTA. Only 18 in spb! Usually it's double that. Have you heard there's a new racing series for SPB at ECR and MSR in Cresson? It's bringing some excitement...

Odds are that it hasn't been done. I don't think dealers share service history even if you could get one to tell you.

Congrats. I never noticed a hump before but maybe I'll need to look closer. You may need to mount it and then take a heat gun to it to soften it up some so you can reshape it.

There's a worm gear that the cable attaches to inside the transmission. Those are know to come loose or break also.

There's a small bolt that holds the bottom. That bolt usually has a glob of seam joint on it that keeps it from coming out. My guess is that fender has been replaced at one time in it's life
