Very nice. You got to post pics of the interior to fully show of your hard work and some back pics. I thinks a photo shoot is in order.

Just a question, does the GT3 front bumper lower the height of the front bumper. I really like the look but can't lower the bumper due to the amount of speed bumps in my area.

Great job ! It's nice to see a fellow boxster owner who enjoys mod'in their vehicle as well.
The only thing lacking is it's not speed yellow .

Very, very nice. If you don't mind telling us, where did you purchase the crate motor?

Thanks for all the compliments. The gt3 bumper is much lower then stock , I don't drive the car with the lower lip attached. The motor came from Porsche. My motor had an ims failure and was under CPO. Dealer had this x51 on display . I sold my replacement rebuilt factory 3.2 and purchased the 3.6 and roughly 3 years of upgrades later this is the final product.

I am speechless, esp with the 3.6 stuffed in there.

I have always been a fan of the RUF wheels. Nice build!

fantastic. I've been considering the exact same thing as I have most of the parts including the 3.6 x51 (ruf front bumper and skirts instead of gt3, however). been thinking about oem gemballa side skirts to get a ruf rk vibe going on. in fact, I was even looking at houndstooth inserts for my gt3 seats. like minds I guess. where did you get yours - I am working with classic cars seats for mine.

Awesome work. I'll have to take pictures of mine in Guards Red someday. Where did you get the houndstooth GT3 seat inserts? Also, can you take pics of the mirror mounts? I have 987 RUF mirrors painted, figuring I could swap over the mounts easily with some guidance/pics.
