Boxster Engine Removal Video

Hey guys, I just picked up another boxster. This will be my 4th one! This is the second one with intermix/cracked head. I decided to try and document the process a little better and while I'm no film maker I have been playing around a bit with a new go pro and making a few videos. I did a few videos of the last one but only posted them to Facebook. I've started uploading stuff to youtube now and hopefully share some of this stuff with other Porsche fans. Here is a link to one I just made over the weekend. Check out my youtube channel for some others. I'll try to document more of this project as it progresses!

Many and various BMW's but it's not that kind of forum

For easier access , suggest you remove the clamshell and trunk lid. Just a few bolts. Been covered previously. It helps to see directly down on the engine for some tedious/access problems.
