I just got back from signing over the title. I'm back to being a VW guy, the difference bing that I used to be a VW guy with aspirations of being a Porsche guy, and now I'm just a VW guy.

$700 for an RMS seems about right, and if he'll change the clutch for an additional $300 you should have it done whether yours is worn or not.

Yes, the oil will have to be drained to do the RMS.

Now you're on to something, Kurt. I can honestly say that including 911s the Boxster was my favorite car to drive. The feel is superior to anything I've experienced (driving a car :rolleyes: ). I...

Oh yeah - That poor thing has done her time. She just doesn't quit though! The difference in the cost to own VWs and Porsches is that the VW will slowly break many small parts that will nickle and...

More like a marble or nut meandering throughout your motor, bashing whatever it feels like bashing. It'll quiet down for a few seconds, maybe even a minute or two at a time, and then the destruction...

I believe the only way to confirm the failure 100% is to tear down the motor and inspect, but no one does that because it's very uncommon to rebuild these. The way that my mechanic came to the...

The IMS is the intermediate shaft. Unlike RMS it's not a seal. My very basic understanding is that there is a ball bearing in the intermediate shaft that fails and as it fails it comes apart in tiny...

Well, I give up. I had someone at the shop get the engine number for me and it doesn't have an "X" at the end, so I guess it's not a re-manufactured motor, and confirms that the '99 is not immune to...

I don't mean to jack this thread, but I saw a post you made on Renntech about an X at the end of the serial number meaning it was replaced. Did you get an answer as to whether that's true or not?...

Jim,
Thanks for the kind words. It was nice to meet you and the other guys at the PCA event. I'll probably be back this Sunday, but in my old Jetta. I sold the car to the mechanic whose shop it's at...

The pre-00 is not immune to the IMS failure. I've owned a 99 for 7 weeks and my IMS went, so I'm selling the car for an $11,000 loss because I didn't have a warranty. Also, even the best PPI will not...

FS: 17" Boxster wheels with Kumho 710s

I purchased these for my Boxster less than 2 months ago and my motor went, so they need to go. They're the regular 17x7 and 17x8.5" wheels with about half-used Kumho 710 race tires. I only...

Renagade Hybrids has been doing Chevy conversions on 944s, 911s, and 914s and I'm just going to check with them to see if they are in development of a Boxster kit. It could be cool and is the only...

I appreciate the help you've all provided and figured I'd let you know where I stand right now. I'm not replacing the motor with either a 2.5 or 3.4 because I just don't believe in the motors...

I have considered the possibility of attempting to swap in a used motor myself, but I won't consider paying a shop to swap in another 2.5 time bomb. This option is probably not a terribly smart one...

OUCH! I guess it may get parted out then. I'd have to be able to get more than that out of it in pieces I'd think, since every little sensor is $200 to $700 new.

For $15k I can have them put in a brand new Porsche factory 3.4. My mechanic has flat-out refused to install a used 2.5 or 3.4, which I agree with. I have already ruled out the possibility of a new...

I was never a fan of these conversions before, but given my current situation it seems like a bargain, if they were to make one for the boxster. Definitely keep us posted.
