Well, it has been a long fun project, but kind of running out of things to do. I am sure we will continue to make weight reduction changes as we go, but for now, I have run out of things to do 🙁 Finished installing the kill switch, routing the cable through the cowl which allows everything to sit under the drainage covers nicely. Again, maybe all this stuff will go in the future, but we will wait on that …

The Boxster is back in the house and almost ready to go! Really happy with the way the paint on the cage turned out. I am down to installing the fire suppression system and after that it is ready to go!

With the fast upcoming race season just around the corner, we are bustling to try and get the cars ready for the year. We will have 2 teams campaigning the old 944 and the BMW this year, so that will definitely keep us busy. Luckily the BMW is pretty much ready to go with the exception of general fluids/fire system, etc that needs to be done. The 944 needed some work after having most of the last 2 years off …

We shove a lot of Cayennes through the shop for maintenance, but I know there are a lot more out there that need our help! They are really good vehicles in general, a few issues like coolant pipes and drive shaft carrier bearings, but overall, they are really solid gas slurping pigs. This one came in for some light maintenance which we were able to take care of quickly. First thing to do was the replace the various lights that …

Had this little 996 in the other day to fix a big coolant leak 🙂  Turns out the waterpump let go and started leaking, which is pretty common with these cars. Typical leak is to the right of the driver side exhaust tip. And looks like this 🙂 While the engine doesn’t have to come out, you do have to loosen the one cat, support the engine, and remove the carrier from its mount. Something like this. Which will allow …

Huge thanks to Shoutcloud Studios for redesigning and implementing the new website!  There are a couple new additions including the NEW classifieds section where we will regularly list overstock/takeoff/used parts for sale.  While we are still doing some testing and making sure all the links and such work, as of the right now most of it is functional.  Hope you guys like the new look, we sure do! Note: And I have just noticed that comments are closed for some …

This is a cool car…one owner 2L in really nice driving shape.  Only trouble was she is bleeding to death.  Several small leaks and one biggie, the main. So out with the drivetrain and off with the flywheel. Look at all that oil slinging out. While we’re in there we’ll take care of this.  With the engine back in we see this.  Mechanics did this on these cars for years.  They add another solenoid instead of fixing the starting system.  We’ll …

Ok, maybe one more before they tell me to stop 🙂 Got the call today and picked up the Spec Boxster from the cage builder. Pretty stoked on how it turned out. Now to paint the cage and start knocking off a few final finishing items. With the cage in place, I had to do some notching to make the dash fit again which wasn’t a big deal. While the dash was back out (removed for cage install), I took …

Well…..this may be the last blog post for a week or so. Our web guys have been designing us a new site, and will start to make the transition hopefully next week 🙂 The new site will be similar, but with more features, one bringing the blog to the front page, and another adding a classified section where we can post not only new and used parts for sale, but maybe a Porsche or two as well. While at first …

The holidays have come and gone, a little time off, and we are back at it. We have been knocking out a lot of daily driver work the last couple of weeks as the weather has turned cold, and people have put away their Porsches for the winter. A lot of projects ongoing though, a couple of engine rebuilds, race car prep, SPEC boxster cage almost done, amongst endless other work. While we aren’t experts on everything non Porsche that …
