Wet Box

After I lost an immobilizer in my red Boxster I fitted the ECUDOCTORs plastic case to all three off mine, and also (God forbid!) drilled holes in the floorboards to allow water to drain out. No...

You would think so, as many unique 'niche' products as we have in the world of Porsche culture, you would think... but I have never seen such a product. It would seem extremely simple to make, just...

wet Box

Yup, highly likely a damaged immobilizer box. These evil devices should have been located on the rear compartment wall, where the engine control unit is. The immobilizer is encoded to match the ECU...

It doesn't take much to fill the floorboards an inch deep in water and short out the immobilizer box; that happened to one of my Boxsters the first time it came a heavy rain. The drain holes in the...

Remember, in the oil viscosity rating, the first number relates to the oil's behavior when cold, the second number to it's behavior when hot. Think of a 0W40 oil as a somewhat-thick oil that doesn't...

Hot air

After finding fragments of foam blowing out of my vents, I removed the heater box (no small task!) to repair the metal 'doors' inside. I laid a layer of fiberglass on each side of each door, and...

I have a pair of Liftbars, and am quite pleased with them. There are a few minor problems with them though. Even though I use 'low profile' floor jacks, it is difficult to get the jack under the bar,...

Tranny issue

I'll venture that your obstacle has nothing to do with using headless bolts as guide pins; I have seen, and used, that technique several times.
I would predict that your clutch disc is not...

Selling your '98, just because you bought another Porsche? What kind of reason is that? You'll be sorry!!! Never sell one good car just because you've got another good car. We've got three 986's,...

Bird bike rack

Let me check with one of my sons. He and his fraternal twin have Boxsters, and his brother has a Bird rack I purchased and installed. I'll see if he is interested; he doesn't bike so much as his bro.
