If you want the 987 airbox because the air filter is about twice the size of the 986 one, the best time to do it is with the engine out. There are threads you can search for how to modify the 987...

FYI, when I had the ROW M030 kit installed on my 2003 S, the rear sway bar in the kit was the same part number as the rear sway bar that was already on there. The part number was 98633370121.

I finally broke down and bought the GT3 console delete kit and installed it. I'll miss the 2 storage cubbies I had, but hope my right leg appreciates the extra room!

That is awesome, enjoy it! It looks like the stock intake plenum in the top picture. Is that the final built up 3.8 engine, and are you still running the original throttle body?
