Battery Tender Jr. is all you need. Simple and pretty cheap. I have been using this for 10 years and have only had to replace the battery once after 8 years.

So no-one else has installed the bigger throttle body and under-drive pulley in a 2.5 Boxster? I'm pretty sure someone else did the same mods a few years back. I must be the only one left that...
