That's a major project, i suppose the only thing to add after that would be a few turbos.

Please post some pics or info of the build if possible, whats the intended use? Road, track, show?

hi guys, we looked at that option turbos and supercharge but the guys at performance Porsche here in uk said the best bet was stay aspirated so we have also uprated the clutch and rebuilt the gear box we have even uprated the fuel pump and put in larger fuel lines for petrol demand will be higher I love the boxster its a amazing piece of kit so I decided to have built the best boxster I could afford its that mid-engine that gives it that awesome qualities will try and keep you updated as things progress regards jon uk.

RUF 3.8 or just a 3.8 swap like a RUF 3800S?

I have a 3.8 M96 in mine from a re-sleeved/up-bored 911. I get 300 whp. It's fun.
