Re: zorst

What have you looked at? I'm in the same dilemma. The big names want £1000+ for a back box. I'm going to get something make up like the "stebro" 986 exhaust. Hopefully for half that. Very minimalist. In the US some people race straight through pipes from the cats back, but that's too loud....

Re: auto electrician

Not sure you need an auto electrician or just someone who has done it before and knows what you can/can't and shouldn't rip out. Jasmine, Track focused and I assume TF Motorsport have all done this. I'm sure would help depending on your location. Definitely worth doing and will simplify your fuse an...

Light weight bumper bars

Has anyone considered fitting light weight bumper bars to thier boxster? Another option to help shift the extra 20kgs for 2014. http://store.gospecracing.com/986-996bumperbarandtowhook-2.aspx I know we are allowed to remove them completely, but that is the wrong answer as even the smallest impact wo...

Re: full fat drive shafts

Driveshafts should be fine.
I recall just removing surface rust and using hammerite on the cv joint outers.
Most have removed the handbrake and shoes completely.
Some grids are not flat though. As a minimum replace those springs definitely.

Re: Boxster build parts

For the rollbars and adjustable links you have a choice to make. Some people have the Porsche GT3 front bar. You can team this with a rear Tarret bar from the US. Not sure of UK suppliers. Or the H&R front and back kit is available. The latter is stiffer, but solid not hollow so heavier. A few d...

Re: lexan windows

Hi, Yeah keep the weather strips and use those two upper mounting bolt holes. No need to cut any more of the door skin out. If you put some rubber washers / spacers (10-20mm worth I think) behind the door skin & in between the window it should tilt the glass inwards as you suggest. There is just...

Re: Newbie

Welcome. The cage interferes with the heater fan motor on passenger side, also its way too heavy to leave in place. (I've learned that lesson - dash out a 2nd time). Most people just have a blower fan and join the water pipes. Have a look at T7design.co.uk though. I have one of their mini heaters fi...

Re: Heated windscreen

You will steam up in wet/cold weather so most people have rigged some sort blower.
