I'm also trying out Nankings (on 17" wheels) as winter replacements for my Continental Extreme Contact Sports. So far I've been pleasantly surprised with them.

Porsche replacement engine

I have a ‘99 Boxster with a replacement engine(it has the AT serial number). Is there anyway to tell approximately when it was replaced by using the engine serial number?

Right at the end I hear the starter grinding. Check out Burner's YouTube about doing the starter. Seems like he demonstrates the 'before' noise.

I went with the Quickjack units also. The factory occasionally has refurbed sets available and they are about 25% cheaper.

Go to utube and look up 'Burner's Cars'. Find his 'Fix 13' and go to 9:00 min. There he tells how to use standard shop tools and your weight to torque the axle nut.
