Well, this is kind of part 2 and 3 since we have already done some work, tested the car at Hallett, and moved on to the next stage: First thing we had to do was to catch up on some maintenance and get the car trackable in order to test what we had. First thing to do was to flush all the coolant out, change the waterpump and switch to a low temp thermostat. Next we needed to replace the …

With all of our great turn out over the last couple years at the Waid’s location, the owners have made so much money that they decided to close down, retire, and move to the Bahamas with their loot. Thus the location has changed for the future! New Breakfast location: Le Peep’s @ 79th and Quivera in Lenexa @ 7:30 am Saturdays. For those of you old timers, this is a location we used previously for many years. For those that …

Had this 951 come in the other day for a nice cosmetic upgrade….aero mirrors. While it might seem simple to just swap the mirrors over, there is a little more to it. First thing to do is to remove the mirror glass. And the motor housing. This leaves us the electrical connector. It is too large to pass through the hole in the mirror stem, so it must be disassembled using a special tool. Many hacks will just pull the …

Had this nice little 981 come into the shop for some manly upgrades. The OE exhaust leaves a lot to be desired, so I ordered up a Fabspeed and got to work. Love the new look of the Boxster. Old exhaust ready to come off. Some neat changes on the 981 that most people don’t get to see. Fiber underbelly pans, and electronic parking brakes. And like magic, the old exhaust is off and I have the new one installed. …

I’ve been waiting for a fun project for awhile now, so here it is. We sourced a very cheap 45k mile Boxster locally with a factory hardtop on it recently. The car is in need of maintenance, but nothing we wouldn’t be replacing in the process of building a race car anyway. The project will be a drawn out build, starting with a modest track car and using the car while slowly finishing the build to full Spec Boxster Class. …

Had a really nice low mileage Gallardo Spyder come in for some basic maintenance including oil change. The Lambo dry sump system is surprisingly similar to the Porsches, with a slightly harder to get to oil filter! It’s coming for you….. Getting ready to head upwards. The oil change on the Gallardo coupe is so much easier due to the clamshell not being in the way. With the coupe, you can work from the rear of the car, which makes …

I would rename this car the Devil Bitch if I could, lol. This poor car had a PO that just didn’t put any money into maintenance, which has made getting the engine oil tight a real pain in the rear. It is one then when you have a small oil leak and then repair it, but when you let it go and then other oil leaks start, it is nearly impossible to figure out where the oil is coming from. …

Movie quote. If you don’t know what it is from then shame on you. The first part of a 6 movie series (and still going strong with #7 in the works) “It’s all right. I ain’t losing. This fool is running a Honda 2000. I’ll win, it’s all good. Then, me and my dad can roll together when he gets out of prison.” Had this little S2000 come in for some quick maintenance. CEL throwing a possible rear O2 sensor …
