Sweet, I like it! Looks like a lot of work to switch that front end, but it really changes the look.

That thing looks BAD ASS!!! I hate to think how much this cost, but it must be almost one of a kind. Non Porsche people have a hard time telling what exactly my car is and all I have is the factory Aero kit and no trunk badge lol. I'd love to see more pics from different angles.

Impressive work. Which rear flares are those. I am considering going wide body with my race car this winter. Here is a pict of it:

Killer job man! Although if no one else is gonna say it I have to... Personally I think that wing is a bit much, eh?? It's a good looking spoiler but take about 50% off of those supports so it sits lower IMHO.

Been tinkering with mine, just added some resonators to the straight pipes so it is not quite so obnoxious and actually got the AC installed because for whatever reason having a Boxster with almost 500 HP isn't cool unless it has a/c :/

I really like the positive/negative criticism guys thank you. I love it, but I'll love it more when I get the duck tail for it, I feel like the rear of the Boxster has too much of a bubble/tear drop shape in the rear that leaves a bit too much open space between the spoiler. I'm waiting on a GT3RS style ducktail that the brackets will bolt up to and fix that issue. I will more than likely get a custom set of brackets made with more of the "GT3" look to them as well. I like the Zeintop but what I really want is a targa top, a member on here (Stelan) is making them and I think they're in the final stages of production. I pretty much have everything to go twin turbo the only thing I don't have is time!!

below is the wing flavor im going for.
