The greenfrog (Cayman R) is hitting 222F (coolant) and 252F (oil) at VIR on a 90F+ day, so it's time to add some more cooling. The center radiator installation is well documented and straight forward. Flushing the whole cooling system is much messy and requires special tool (UView Airlift 550000) to refill. In addition there are some differences between 987.1 and 987.2 water pumps. Here are some of the articles and forum threads I researched: ...

This article shows you how to remove the front bumper cover. Why might you need to remove the front bumper cover? Several reasons come to mind, such as installation of third center mounted radiator, getting your front bumper repainted, or the reason for this article, cleaning out the debris from the radiators as a matter of routine maintenance. Here are the tools necessary for this evolution: 1/4" drive ratchet T-30 socket & ratchet or L-shaped wrench T-25 socket & ratchet or L-shaped...

Vehicle: 2006 Cayman S Why this system? I wanted a valved system with a bit deeper growl, with a richer sound going through the gears and the gurgle when decelerating. I also wanted no/minimal drone during cruising and a good looking, high quality construction and finish. This system allows me to enter/leave the neighborhood without waking everyone as I head off to cars and coffee or the Blue Ridge Mountains, but when switched to the louder mode, sounds very exotic and rewarding,...

981 Boxster/Cayman uses closed-back front calipers, which must be removed to change front brake pads. It's not a difficult task, but a few tips with pictures will hopefully make it even easier. CAUTION: 1. Do not stress the hard metal brake line when moving the caliper around 2. Properly torque the brake caliper screw is crucial. Over torque it and you risk pulling the thread out of the aluminum wheel carrier. 3. Caliper screws are one-time use. Always replace with new ones. Never...

P0455 error, leak inevaporative system 2006 Cayman S There is a lot of informationfor this error code for earlier Boxsters and other models that focus on ventline valve near the fuel filler neck and/or vent lines at the charcoalcanister (carbon canister), but, unfortunately, most of this information didnot apply to my car.Since I could notfind this information when I searched here before, I thought I would do a shortwrite-up for other Porsche novices. I am new to Porsches in general...

The dreaded day arrived for me last fall. I'm writing of course about when my factory Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensors reached the end of their life. My car is a 2007, manufactured in June 2007, put into service in July 2007. I started seeing TPMS malfunctions (the readings all went blank while driving, then came back) in the summer of 2014. So I got about 7 years, 80,000 miles out of my sensors before they went kaput. This is pretty much in line with the 6-8 years that other...

If you ever have to run a wire to the back of a Cayman, you'll need to remove the Driver Side Sill Plate. I had to do so to run a wire for my Oil Pressure Gauge and I learned that unlike most cars where that plate is held down with just plastic friction pins, the sill plate on a Cayman is rock solid. It's held in with two rather substantial bolts. If you need to remove yours, you'll want to read on. 1Removal Procedure 1). There are two plastic plugs in the side of the sill plate between...

This was a DIY I did a couple of years ago. Still holding strong. Shared on the "other" website years ago. -1 piece of Pink Board Backing. Home Depot $8 to $10 bucks... They can cut it up on site to fit in your car... -1 yard or so of Black (or your choice) felt fabric... Might cost you $5 bucks a yard. -Some electrical wire.. Likely have this laying around... Cut the Pink Board to the shape of the "trunk/frunk area". I used some wrapping paper to lay across the opening of the...

A clutch slave cylinder should last a long time. But there have been incidents of slave cylinders leaking in Caymans, which can leave your clutch pedal on the floor. There was a Workshop Campaign (W802) back in 2008 to replace more than 1,200 bad slave cylinders that made their ways into cars (987s and 997s). Should you find yourself in need of a new slave cylinder, this article should be of great help to you. 1Torque Values Fastener LocationDescriptionTool SizeTorque ValueClutch...

Three years ago at my very first DE, my instructor said he knew I would come back, and I should make improving the safety equipment a priority. Since then, I have gained plenty of seat time, but have been guilty of putting off the safety upgrade. Last November at VIR, I got a cramp in my left leg for bracing against the dead pedal through turn 1. I bought a CG Clamp on site. It helped a lot, but does not appear to be practical for street use. That's when I decided I need 6-point harness,...
