So getting down to the nitty gritty on the wireing. What is really needed in a car.
Turn signals
Brake lights
head lights
Power to engine management
Maybe a horn
instrumentation (do I really need lighted instruments) could always add later.
some sort of blower for the windshield to help with de-fog
power windows have been suggested as a good idea to keep.



Things to go
power door locks can go
power mirrors look heavy and have lots of wireing.
DME harness all gone
radio gone
A/C gone
all ventilation system gone. trying to separate the harness (wires were smoked)
interior accessory lights gone. (windshield and glovebox)
power seats gone

Anyone notice that reading a porsche wireing diagram is alot like bingo. B25 (25 under B) And I just can't believe how they connect harnesses that have no bearing on each other with maybe one wire. i.e the windshield wipers connect to the heater harness. Ground wires are likely to go anywhere and the instrument lighting looks like a string of xmas lights. Still not sure how you can have wires coming out of both ends of the fuse and why the heck did they put the fuse block on the side with all the fuel lines. It is truely a wonder any of these cars are still running.
See all that nice wire. It is now sitting on a bench in pieces along side of a service manual trying to figure out how it all goes back in.

Small update I have sorted out the majority of the wire harness and have put most of what will stay put back in. so far the following are working. And I think they are all that will be needed.

Head lights (high and low)
tail lights
turn signals
emergency flashers
brake lights
wipers all speeds including the delay function
drivers electric window (motor bad on passengers side but have one coming)
horn is working (the horn is the only relay left on the fuse panel) I think there are now a total of 15 fuses used. I may think about changing out the fuse panel now that it is more manageable.

I still have to attach the gauges. The instrumentation harness is separate from the DME harness so I should be able to pick up the oil and temps just as before. The tach did run through the DME but the new tach signal will come from the TEC3r anyhow so that will be a new wire.

electric mirrors at this time do not work. they may be replaced
All heating /cooling ventilation wires have been eliminated
alarm system eliminated
DME harness eliminated
door locks eliminated
audio eliminated

An update for anyone who is still interested.

Finally made a decision on how to tie the top down in the rear section. We made a clamp out of some square tubing and some 1/2" stock (the inside piece) This was epoxied above the rear window. A strap was ran from the clamp to the ledge of the car where the old frame sat. This was then latched with a toggle latch. The toggle latch $2.99 harbor freight comes with a long clamp arm. These were ground down to the hook shape shown. The top clamp makes it adjustable and it really pulls the top down nice. The second are is the rear seal. This is an epdm seal from mcmaster. I think it was part number 1120A821 I can recheck my invoice. It makes a nice seal on the inside and I think ties in the top on the outside. The very rear is held down by a piece of aluminum angle that is epoxied to the inside edge. When putting the top on the back is just slid under the existing edge and then layed in place. Two rear clamps and the two front clamps and your done.

The side clamp


The rear angle


The toggle latch


The upper clamp


View showing inside and outside of seal


The ouside in general

The top came with the car and was one of the main reasons I bought the car. It was originally from rennspeed.com but they appear to be no longer taking orders. I don't know of anyplace that makes them. I don't think very many were made. I think it would actually be easier and cheaper to find a factory version (they did make them). Biggest drawback to that is the weight of the factory unit. This one I can take off and put on by myself. Not sure what I will grab once the rear lexan window is in but I will figure something out.

do you have a p/n and or yr range the factory made this top ? I'll bet it is crazy $$ since it is a Porsche part....

As far as on & off moving... the factory offers a strap/winch/pulley set up for the boxster hard tops... or maybe fab up a jig that straps around it, straps are padded, lift it off from the rear of the car like you are pulling in a big fish with both hands on the fishing rod... I suggest this as you obviousley need to release your clamps and then pivit the rear up and back towards you to get the rear lip to clear... just an idea... wight want to start lifting some weights if you really want this to be a 1 person doing...
Keep posting... great job here !!!
Bob

Well been awhile since any updates but things are progressing. The engine is now rebuilt and back in the car. Suspension has been redone and wireing for the engine management system is done and functioning. Haven't started the engine yet as I appear to have a problem ording the correct number of fuel fittings. A few updated pictures. I still have crap for a camera so sorry.

Did you use duct tape on the headers or electrical take - just kidding. It looks trick.

Just an attempt to keep the temps down a bit. Lots of debates over the header wrap. Will it or won't it cause the headers to crack. I don't know the answer but I do know the headers run pretty close to some of the electrical so I chose to take the chance of header failure over a complete electrical melt down.

Project looks great by the way!

Did I miss the specs on the motor internals?

What cam are you using? 46mm PMO ITBs?

Cheers

The Engine
The original 3.2 rebored to 3.4
original crank
New 10.5:1 JE forged pistons
1mm deck height
Heads refurbished and twin plugged with supertec race springs
Cam reground to DC20 specs and rockers were refurbished
cams set to .050" lift at TDC
PMO ITBs 46mm
Electromotive TEC3r with electromotive direct fire coils
Clewett engineering crank trigger
Clewett engineering cam trigger for full sequential injection
European raceing (georges) headers 1.75"
PLX wideband O2 sensor feeding the TEC3r
exhaust wrapped with thermo tec black graphite to protect engine
Left side block off homemade thanks to the board
Stock flywheel (ran out of money)
clutch is aluminum Sachs sport clutch with sport clutch disk.
Transmission is stock with exception of 2nd gear I think is 17:35
attempting to install tilton transmission cooler (my location is working so will redo)
Wheels 15" 7" front 8" rear with goodyear 23X9X15 slicks .25" spacers all wheels
22/30 torsion bars with adjustable koni yellow sport shocks
Looking for good adjustable front sway bar
tubo tie rods. (don't do anything but easier to adjust and sound cool)
Ultra shield road race seat
Homemade 1.5" X .120 DOM roll bar 6 point bolt in. Will be welded in.
bumpers are fiberglass IROC style will probably replace with my CTR fiberglass
All electrical stipped except headlights, tail lights, brake lights and backup lights. Turn signals and flashers also function. Windshield wiper functions. [even has delay ]
I have one peice fiberglass duck tail, or a slightly heavier carrera tail with rubber lip.
Anyhow just sat the seat in, stuck the duck tail on the back, through in a coil of welding cable that will go to kill switch, put on the fuchs on with the slicks, the axles are in so basically the way it will be. No gas and took battery out. So add 5 gal gas and a optima battery at 40-50 lbs. weight without the gas or battery is 2050lbs. So put in some gas add a battery and somewhere around 2150 should be close. That is minus the hard top which is less than 50 lbs so in track configuration maybe 2200 lbs.
There you have it the car is destined to get its butt kicked in SCCA solo class XP. Hopefully running in my backyard in Lincoln NE. 4 million square feet of nothin but flat concrete. mmmmmm.........

It looks like you came up with an ... errr... very efficient.... exhaust setup. I bet your neighbors will start a fund to pay for a muffler. Ask me how I know

nice setup - I bet you can't wait to take it to the road or better track.

Very, Very nice...love the work...good for you. The exhaust system reminds me of a tangerine 911 lightweight I read about in Excellence a few months back.

Why did you not decide to go with the RSR megaphones?

Dave has been a busy boy. That sucks now you are really going to kick my ass at the track considering more HP and 500 lbs lighter. That is one sweet engine, suitable for framing a picture of that. Look forward to getting a ride next summer.

looks sweet !!!!!!!!!!!! make sure you get your afr dialed in so not to cause any lean or rich conditions and their related problems... especially due to the straight exhaust pipes you are running.
I would hate to be following you on the track with your mega size pea shooters roaring flames out the pipe ends. ;-)
Have a sound clip of it by chance ??
