That means it was installed improperly

The seals have to be removed for the oil stream to work.

That should have no impact on the problem described in the first place, but indicates one error on the original installer's part.

That's pretty much correct

Hello John,

Good to hear from you and see you are still participating in some forums.

I pretty much agree with that analysis. But to me, the thing we need to learn, is what amount of parasitic...

What would be much more useful...

Would be to understand the oil flow and pressure readings.

It has to be a case of marginal flow. The question is why?

All swapping does is say that the flow is marginal.

A worn motor will...

This is jumping to conclusions that are not supported

I am an engineer, electrical, admittedly, but the approach is the same. I have no business connection with PedrosGarage, TuneRS etc. I do know some of the individuals and therefore know some history...

Yes, the OP seems to have it backwards

A stiffer front bar would be used to cure over steer/tail-happiness. It will INCREASE under steer. Many people confuse flat,prompt turn-in with more grip int he front. Not so. In effect, a stiffer...

yes and no

The IMS upgrade is pretty involved. Lift car; pull tranny completely; remove flywheel. So far a Ford MT is on board (with the right lifts, etc.). Now comes the tough part - use MANY special tools to...

So here's the balanced deal.

Boxsters are actually very, very reliable, and can run >200k miles, even driven hard. Why? among other things a big oil sump; locasil lined cylinders (very hard); stout manual trannies from Audi...

"everything" is a lot :-) But here's some info

1. as others have said, slow down on the mods. You may find they are not needed. These cars are pretty impressive right out of the box. I track my car a bit and it works - box stock.

2. That said,...

Warm

If its cold, and has been sitting for a long time, it will not all flow out.

Get it good and hot. Then change the oil.

Paul,

yes, M1 0W40 is good for that wide range.

You will need:

1- 9 quarts of oil
2- A really big catch pan to catch the old 9 quarts of oil
3- OEM or Mahle replacement OF paper cartridge...

Excellent performance. Noisiest tire I ever had (ES100)

Bottom line is I would never buy them again except maybe as a track tire.

None are cost effective.

I'd recomend....none. Exhausts make them louder, but not always faster. Intakes (K&N) make a TINY difference. ECUs rarely help any NA car. Thjey are great with turbos. I have heard that if you...

This last post is correct. You want peak power.

... because the torque multiplication effect of the gearbox works in your favor, since you get the torqgue multiplied by a ahigher number of revolutions equal to the ratio of the two gears).

Problem with variable valve timing?

Not much help beyond that I'm afraid, except to suggest you keep it about 5k :-()
