101 Projects for your Boxster

http://www.pelicanparts.com/catalog/...bkptec_pg2.htm

Believe me, YOU WANT THIS BOOK!!!!!
It's like the "Bentley for Dummies" (in a very good way).
Lot's of color pictures, and you know what they say: "a picture says a 1000 words". Also what I liked is that it includes references to aftermarket parts where it makes sense. There is even a section which discusses engine swaps and one about Turbos and Superchargers, you won't find that in the Bentley. Go out and order yours!

Have had my copy for a week and I keep rereading it. It's a must have although I did'nt see anything about " desnork " or gutted exhaust. Are you joining us for the 1/1/11 run?

thanks for the invite, but I'll be Snowboarding in Tahoe
De-snork is basically covered in "installing an aftermarket intake"

Got mine last week as a Christmas present to myself and also got the EVO CAI as a gift for my Boxster which is one of the projects in the book. Now I just need tools and a garage.

Is this 986 specific or equally as relevant for 987s?
