Can a mod put the "S" in Boxster?

Missing on 4 cylinders? Or misfire on cylinder 4? Big difference!

Is it presumptuous of me to assume the kid's a punk and beat the E36 M3 out of that Porsche (at least somewhat) on purpose?

Naw Bra - It's sweet but just needs a bit of work to get it to the next level - you know?

Its still awfully tempting for $2800, I bet you could show up with $2200 cash and drive away.

Subaru swap anyone? I do have a big honking electric motor and control sitting in my garage just waiting for a good project like this.

Here's one local to me that I bet you could not only take home for challenge money, you might be able to get it driving for challenge money:

99 Boxster - $2250

Not running, but includes a hard-top!

Wierd, I am having a hard time believing that $2800 could be too much for a running Boxster but here it is.

I'd throw a Corvair motor in it, because I'm stupid like that.

The former owner of this has a very bad rep, I frequent the club that he braged about redlining and street racing to.

The Skulls are a dead giveaway.

but +10 poser points!

The ones that brag about redlining and street racing probably didn't.

And what's wrong with redlining? Its a car, not a museum piece.

The factory installed a rev limit in the ECU to (hopefully) prevent overspeeding, so red line is within design parameters. That won't keep some mongrel from downshift overspeeding it though. (maybe that is why it needs 2nd gear syncro)(but its probably a stupid and lazy clutch foot)
